[Plugin: Facebook Comments for WordPress] Doesn't work for me (117 posts)

    Argghhh! I'm just about to give up and deactivate...I installed everything properly, but all I get is "Facebook Comments" underlined at the bottom of my post, but none of the actual comments from Facebook.

    This problem has been brought up in this thread...did anyone find a solution to it yet?

    Graham, I've upgraded and it now works. Thanks! :)

    I'm having the same problem, I get only the header text but either no comment box at all, or the Facebook "loading..." bars that continue eternally.

    I think this has something to do with themes. I've tried a few and with some this works, with some this doesn't.

    For example with Twenty Ten 1.1 and WordPress Classic the box works, but with Black Lucas or Red Lucas it doesn't.

    I hope this is the right thread I'm posting in.
    I installed the Facebook comment plug-in on my webpage (www.frkoverballe.dk), and at first it seemed to work perfectly, but from time to time it won't post peoples comments, it won't post my comments, and it will never, ever post comments from one particular facebook user or give me a notification when someone posts a comment, even though I entered the correct facebook ID.
    Is there any way to fix these problems?

    Hi all,

    If all you see is the Facebook Comments title, you most likely have a conflict with another plugin. Try disabling other Facebook-related plugins.

    This happens because this plugin uses the new (correct) Facebook library, whereas other plugins still import the old library and you can't have both on the same page.

    I couldn't get this to work at first, my solution was to stop Ghostery from blocking Facebook Connect, and now comments appear ok.

    I dont suppose there is any way to use this plugin without having a 3rd party tracker on the site?

    Okay, I think I've narrowed this down a bit. I have a three column layout in my blog, with Facebook Sharecount plugin and on the sidebars a Facebook NetworkedBlogs Widget and our band's Facebook Page Box showing all the fans and so on. Removing the latter made the comments work.

    The thing is, apparently this has something to do with the order of loading all these Facebook related items, because I couldn't find any three column themes where the Comment box works, but in many two column themes it does.

    Hi thinkswan!

    Thank you for great plugin! Everything works fine for me. But I've got one problem too. I've set my Notification UID, but still doesn't receive any notifications when comment is posted. Any solutions?

    Thanks in advance ;)

    Hi all!

    I'm currently working on resolving the conflicts with other plugins. The problem is that Facebook recently released a new client library (which this plugin uses), but it dies when a page tries to load both the new and the old libraries. Unfortunately, most other plugins still load the old library.

    Svajus, notifications have been disabled by Facebook themselves, but I'm working on a custom notification system. Stay tuned.

    Cheers!

    livewithmojo,

    Your Facebook Fanbox may be causing a conflict.

    Also, if you're viewing in IE, you need to click the "Include FBML reference" and "Include OpenGraph reference" options.

    Yes!!! You are amazing!!! :)

    It was the fanbox that messed it up - however, I also want to have a fanbox on my page.... Is there anyway i can have a facebook widget AND your superamazing plugin at the same time??

  15. Graham Swan

    Not at the moment. The fanbox plugin uses an older version of the Facebook API, so it doesn't play nicely with the newer library.

    That author needs to update their code. :-)

    Hmmm...

    Try only using the following, with my plugin enabled, and see if it works:

    <center><fb:fan profile_id="118830091490447" stream="0" connections="10" logobar="1" width="300"></fb:fan></center>

    Yeah - That worked perfectly aswell.
    I got it to work with going into facebook and generate new code for it now.

    Thanks!! Now both the fanbox and your plugin works. Success!

    Hi thinkswan, we started using your plugin on a couple sites: http://www.badausten.com and http://www.adamsmedia.com. On the blog posts, of course.

    Problem is, you can't see the comments using Firefox, but you can using IE8 or Safari. Take a look at this page in IE8, and you'll see the single comment from Adri:

    http://badausten.com/emma-interrupted

    Now view it in Firefox. You can't see it! At least I can't. What's up? Really, really, really excited about this plugin but need it to work in all browsers.

    SixStringSoul, try disabling your sharing plugin for a moment and see if that solves the issue. This plugin is incompatible with certain other Facebook-related plugins at the moment.

    I deactivated the Sociable for WordPress 3.0 plugin and now I can't see the comment from Adri that was posted on http://badausten.com/emma-interrupted in either IE8 or Firefox.

    I can see the comments in every single browser, so I'm beginning to think it's either a browser issue on your side or perhaps lag from the Facebook servers.

    Perhaps wait a half hour and try again. I can't troubleshoot this because it works on my end.

    Hi thinkswan,

    Thanks for this great plugin.

    I had the same conflict problem with my Facebook Fanbox and managed to fix it with the "<fb:fan profile_id=""></fb:fan>" trick you gave above.

    So, on my posts, both appears correctly. For example: http://www.blog-les-dauphins.com/the-cove/

    But the problem is with my home page... No fanbox there! For instance: http://www.blog-les-dauphins.com

    Is there a way to fix that? I mean, without finding out how to set up two different sidebars for the home page and the posts!

    Thanks in advance! :)

    Ok, problem solved:
    You just have to paste the rest of the code in the theme files (for example index.php, etc.).
    Not very simple, but it works.
    Still, if you have an easier solution, I'm ready for it! :-)

    Christiano,

    You need to be logged in to Facebook as the administrator of the application you created.

    Then, on any comment-enabled page on your website, click the Administer Comments link and check the Allow Anonymous Comments box.
