TG Facebook Comments

Description

Facebook can bring a very large number of visitors to your website. ‘Facebook Comments’ is one of the best ways to make your content reach the targeted audience. Moreover, Facebook Comments also give you a basic guarantee about the genuineness of the visitor and spam comments are extremely rare. When a visitor comments on your website through Facebook Comments, his comment may be shared with his friends, which can make your post viral and bring huge traffic to your website.

However, it is generally considered that Facebook Comments are very difficult to integrate in a website. TG Facebook Comments plugin provides an easy and simple way to integrate Facebook Comments in your WordPress website or blog. It allows users to comment on your website through their Facebook accounts. It has default options which take care of most requirements and you may not generally have to change the default options. What is required of you is only to provide the AppID for your Facebook Comments App, the method for obtaining which, in simple way, is also explained (please visit http://www.tekgazet.com/how-to-easily-setup-and-install-facebook-comments-in-wordpress/soft/2848.html for more details). Rest is taken care of by this plugin. Of course, if you so wish, you can change the default settings in the plugin to customize Facebook Comments in the manner you like. Using TG Facebook Comments plugin, you can easily add, customize and administer or moderate Facebook Comments on your website.

It also provides a shortcode [tg_facebook_comments] that can be inserted by you anywhere in any post or page or in any Text widget to display Facebook Comments with options and settings selected by you in the plugin options page.

Once installed, the settings of the TG Facebook Comments plugin would be available for being changed from the ‘TG Facebook Comments’ option in the ‘Settings’ menu on the admin screen (back-end) of your WordPress website or blog.

Configuring TG Facebook Comments plugin

TG Facebook Comments plugin allows you to change following settings (default settings are also provided, which may be good enough for most websites):

  • Select or change the AppID for your Facebook Comments App.
  • Select whether to show or hide Facebook Comments on POSTS (this includes custom post-types also).
  • Select whether to show or hide Facebook Comments on PAGES.
  • Select whether to show or hide Facebook Comments on HOME PAGE.
  • Even if you have decided to choose settings to show Facebook Comments on all posts and/or all pages, you can still disable Facebook Comments on any individual post(s) or page(s), by using the TG Facebook Comments metabox at the time of publishing or updating that post or page. This metabox will be available below the editor on every Add New Post, Add New Page, Edit Post and Edit Page in your WordPress.
  • Add additional moderators to moderate Facebook comments by simply adding the Facebook IDs of the persons who would act as moderators. You can add more than one additional moderators. Since all admins to your Facebook Comments App can, by default, moderate Facebook comments, the moderators added by you would be in addition to those admins. Please visit http://www.tekgazet.com/how-do-i-find-my-facebook-id-number/soft/2849.html for learning in detail as to how to find your Facebook ID or the Facebook ID of any other user.
  • Customize the width of the Facebook Comment box that appears on website. In fact, the default option is a responsive option that can automatically adjust the width of the comment box depending on the width of the DIV / place on your website where it is placed (also depending on the screen size of the device where the comments are shown, i.e., such as mobile phone, laptop or tablet, etc.). However, you may still like to manually change the width of the comment box as per your liking. This plugin gives you the freedom to do so.
  • Select one of the two color-schemes for displaying Facebook comments, viz., light or dark.
  • Use HTML5 or XFBML version of the Facebook Comments.
  • Multi-language support for Facebook Comments is available. You can easily select the language in which comments can be made on your website. All language options are displayed in a select box and you’re required merely to select a language. Almost all major national and international languages are supported. At present, 90 languages are supported.
  • Configure how many comments are to be displayed by default. Of course, a visitor can always load / show more comments easily if more comments are available for that post or page.
  • Change the heading or title of the comments section as per your liking.
  • Change the default order by which comments should be ordered initially. It can be Top, Newest or Oldest. A visitor can always change this order later while reading the comments on a post or page, etc.

This plugin works on all WordPress websites or blogs. It is a very light-weight plugin.

What happens when I uninstall TG Facebook Comments plugin? Will it automatically uninstall or remove all the settings or the changes made to the database?

Yes, indeed. As per the policy guidelines issued by WordPress, every plugin is required to remove all the settings at the time of uninstall. This provides a clean uninstall so that a website is not cluttered unnecessarily by unused data left by uninstalled plugins. However, these settings are retained if you merely ‘deactivate’ the plugin and not ‘uninstall’ it, and this is as per the plugin guidelines. Unlike some other plugins in the same category, TG Facebook Comments plugin will remove all settings from your WordPress site if it is uninstalled. Even the meta-boxes and meta-values will also be removed (from the database). We assure you of best professional standards in this regard.

How can I ask a support question or get help from you in case of any issue with TG Facebook Comments Plugin?

Reviews

This works with my site!

I think this is the most best FB comment plugin,

all others that I’ve tried, all the FB comment boxes are above the author box and above the wordpress’s comment area, that’s conflict.

But this one is fine. Thank you for the plugin, please continue to update it.

BEST

I tried about 10 of them and they showed up in ways I did not like.
this lets you do all pages or posts, or just posts, or turn them off and just put shortcode on the page post or widget you want.
Perfect!
