Update and Comments FAIL! (6 posts)

    Not only does the new update disable my WordPress comments (I never had the Facebook comments enabled), it adds a comments option area at the bottom of all of my PAGES (and YES I've unchecked add comments under Discussions).

    Disabled - everything is fixed. Hope to see this sorted out soon.

    I am also seeing this...

    FB comments only show on posts where comments are enabled.

    WP comments are now showing on posts and pages where comments are disabled.

    Turning off FB comments removes comments from posts and pages where comments are disabled, and returns WP comments to posts where comments are enabled.

    I'm not lobbying for WP and FB comments to be displayed together (while this would be my preference, I understand from other threads that this is not the aim), merely supporting the OP pointing out that I too have WP comments now showing on posts and pages where comments are disabled via tick box.

    Comments will not work.
    After deactivation of the plugin the normal comments are working again.

    I do not like that this facebook plugin is trying to force everyone to only use facebook commnets, and that they have to have them enabled on all pages/posts or none at all. Previously it could be enabled and disabled on a per post/page basis.

    Facebook are you listening? I don't want your comments box on all my PAGES. I don't want your comments box at the end of all my posts. I like all the other features... Why are you forcing your comments on me???

    I've done some experimenting since updating to 1.1.6

    If I tick the box to use Facebook comments on any of the 3 options (Posts/Pages/Attachments)a WORDPRESS comment box appears on my home page (this is set to a fixed page, not the 'latest posts').

    I do not want comments on any of my fixed pages, and have stipulated this is the per-page settings by ensuring 'allow comments' is unticked on every fixed page.

    If I do not tick the Pages tick box on the Facebook comments setting page, a WORDPRESS comment box appears on every fixed page.

    If I tick the Pages tick box on the Facebook comments setting page, I get no comment box at all (which is the desired behaviour, based on my per-page settings).

    I conclude there MUST be something in the plugin settings causing the WORDPRESS comments feature to appear where it shouldn't.

    As it stands, I have no ticks in the Facebook Comments setting page, and WordPress comments are appearing as expected.
