Makes it easy for your site to use Facebook Connect, in a wholly modular way.
I wanted a plugin to publish my post on my facebook page and after 3 days and 10 different plugins I found it.
After having realised that the official facebook plug in had made my Yslow score dramaticaly drop (=hey!this is why my site's been horribly slow for a month?!?), I've swithched to sfc and yeah, I'm fast again!!
If you are a blogger and not a programmer then no - it ain't simple.
You are required to set up a 'Facebook App' which is some sort of programmer related entity. The help page is useless as it does not refer to or correlate with the boxes you're required to fill in in the facebook app page. For instance enter your url in the box - what box? The one saying App name that must be within 3 and 30 characters or the other two boxes, neither of which mention url?
There is no easy (by easy, I mean, without hacks) way to add log-in button to the front page or any other page for that matter. This is sort of pretty important, since you can`t ask for people to register on wp-login.php, right?
Love the plugin so far - it is simple and clean. I'm having a little trouble with the comment box that pops up when a reader hits the LIKE button after a post but otherwise everything works great.
I love the Facebook followers widget in the sidebar and the log in with Facebook in the comment section is one of the best ones I've seen.
If you are looking for Facebook integration - this plugin has it all!
Simple Facebook Connect really lives up to its name. It really is simple, and it implements Facebook Connect nicely. Other words missing in its title are perhaps, comprehensive, and awesome, as despite being simple to set up, it comprehensively captures all the features that Facebook connect offers (and even beyond, by pulling comments FROM facebook TO your wordpress site!), and in this way its awesome!!
The plugin also scores bonus karma by keeping it clean, without any logos of, or link-backs to its creator, like other similar plugins.
It doesn't get any better :D
