    sorry to make many post - but i cant append in previous post


    1. incorrect time - why time is incorrect ?
    i have go to add time offset in

    $createdDateTime->modify($timeOffsetToLocal.'25200 seconds');


    2. no comment count (number) display

    - it show only "0 Responses" IF that post only have comment from facebook plugin
    - it will show count number (ex. 8 Responses) only IF that post has at least 1 comment from blog's comment system

    - if you comment from blog you will see number but if only post comment from plugin, you wont see any number


    3. is it possible to pull commenter avatar too ?

    now you use only graph api , try FQL also work

    this is example code from other plugin that they use simple api to pull user avatar

    public function fb_get_comments($post,$params=array()) {
    		##		http://developers.facebook.com/docs/reference/fql/comment/
    		##		http://developers.facebook.com/docs/reference/fql/link_stat/
    		$link = (!empty($params['xid'])) ? $params['xid'] : (($post->ID) ? get_permalink($post->ID) : $this->currentURI);
    		$migrated = (!empty($params['migrated'])) ? $params['migrated'] : get_option($this->ns.'fbtools_comments_migrated');
    		##	FQL Query
    		$fql = 'SELECT fromid, text, time, username, id FROM comment WHERE xid = \''.urlencode($link).'\'';
    		if($migrated) {
    			$href = (!empty($params['href'])) ? $params['href'] : $this->currentURI;
    			$fql = 'SELECT fromid, text, time, username, id FROM comment WHERE object_id IN (SELECT comments_fbid FROM link_stat WHERE url = \''.urlencode($href).'\')';
    		$res = $this->fb_query($fql);
    		$xml = new SimpleXMLElement($res);
    		## 	Put Comments into Array
    		$comments = array();
    		if(isset($xml->comment)) {
    			foreach($xml->comment as $comment) {
    				$item = array(
    					'text' => (string) $comment->text,
    					'time' => (int) $comment->time,
    					'commenter' => $this->fb_graph((int) $comment->fromid),
    					'commenter_photo' => (string) 'https://graph.facebook.com/'.(int) $comment->fromid.'/picture'
    		return $comments;

    <img src="https://graph.facebook.com/USER-ID/picture"/>


    we know user id from graph api so we can use pull image

    The local timezone offset is calculated wrong in the plugin, since WP overrides the systems offset. So in WP, date('Z') always returns 0.

    We can fix it, without using a hard coded offset like you did in your example.

    Do this ...
    EDIT FILE: /wp-content/plugins/facebook-import-comments/classes/FacebookCommentImporter.php

    FIND (line 201): $timeOffsetToLocal = date('Z');

    REPLACE WITH: $timeOffsetToLocal = timezone_offset_get(new DateTimeZone(get_option('timezone_string', 'UTC')), $createdDateTime);
