Description

Imports the comments posted on your facebook fan page (or public profile) to your blog.

Your blog has a Facebook fan page ? All of your blog posts are also posted on your fan page ?
This plugin is maybe for you. It checks your Facebook fan page every hour (or more), then imports all Facebook comments back to your blog.

The plugin identify your blog posts on Facebook with the Facebook “link” attribute. So if the Facebook post links to you blog post, it will work.

Facebook Comments Importer is very easy to configure : just specify your Facebook fan page ID… and that’s all.

Note : It should also work with a normal Facebook profile that is not a fan page if the posts and comments are visible to everyone. But this functionnality has not been tested.

This section describes how to install the plugin and get it working.

Use the automatic plugin installer of your WordPress admin, or do it manually :

  1. Upload the facebook-comment-importer directory to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. Configure your Facebook informations under the ‘Settings/Facebook Comments Importer’ menu.
  4. If the check is green, just wait for new comments or click ‘Import Now’.

If your Facebook comments are not imported, it should be a problem with your configuration. It also can be a problem with Facebook itself : The Facebook Graph API is buggy sometimes. In this case, wait for 24 hours.

FAQ

You are free to fork it if you want to improve it
What is the ID of my Facebook Fan Page ?

For example :
1. if your Facebook Fan Page url is www.facebook.com/pages/BlogName/123456, your Fan Page ID is just 123456.
1. if your Facebook Fan Page url is just www.facebook.com/pages/MyName/, your Fan Page ID is MyName.

The test is ok but the comments are not imported, or it can make hours to be imported.

Check the Report table in the plugin settings page to understand where is the problem.
The plugin checks the Facebook API every hour (or more if you configures it). However, sometimes the Facebook API is very slow or does not respond. In this case, the plugin will check for Facebook on the next time.
