  • Hi,
    I’m using a facebook plugin for comments, I managed to displayed the number of comments on the front page, with the bubble.
    Now what I cannot figure out how to do is to make the Coments word a link that will link to the permalink, like a normal comment count would do when using the WP comments
    I used this code on the loop

    <fb:comments-count href="<?php echo get_permalink($post->ID); ?>"></fb:comments-count> Comments

    the code on my theme’s look about the comments is

    <?php if(comments_open( get_the_ID() ))  {
                                    ?>   <span class="meta_comments"><?php comments_popup_link( __( 'No comments', 'themater' ), __( '1 Comment', 'themater' ), __( '% Comments', 'themater' ) ); ?></span><?php
                                }

    what do I need to do to make it clickable ?

    You’re going to need to dissect the comments_popup_link() code to make your own function that echoes out just the URL portion of the popup link, including the comments_popup URL parameter and the onclick javascript event function call. Replace this function in place of the echo get_permalink() inside the FB tags.

    Before you spend too much time though, be sure the FB tag will accept a javascript event function call and it will still actually work. If not, you cannot have popup comments with FB counts.
