Crawlable Facebook Comments
Cache crawlable comments (5 posts)

    The Facebook API can sometimes be slow or unavailable. How about introducing a caching feature of this plugin to store local copies of the crawlable comments (per post) with an admin defined expiration time where refreshed versions would be retrieved from Facebook during next post refresh.

    Nice idea, but don't you think situation when user posts new comment, reloads page and it's still not there might be confusing.

    Would work in conjunction with my othr suggestion of only showing this to bots. Normal users would see Facebook IFrme so not an issue.

    I'm just wondering how to make it easy to install. Shortcode on every blog post/page is pointless however pasting php code in foter.php template file might be difficult to average WP user. Any suggestions?

    If you assume that you'll be including the Facebook comments widget code as part of your plugin, overriding the comment block with a "If Bot show crawlable cached" else "show facebook comment widget". An example of overriding the comment block for Facebook is here:
