Simple Facebook Connect
[resolved] Options for Connect with Facebook (8 posts)

    I currently have the connect with Facebook option working but the only way I could get the button to show up is by checking users must be registered and checked in to comment in WordPress settings/discussion settings.

    I would like anyone to be able to comment without registering but at the same time allow facebook users to have the facebook connect option. Is this possible.

    Yes, in that you can just just turn that option back off.

    SFC Commenting works perfectly well with anonymous commenting.

    In point of fact, SFC Commenting won't work at all if you have that option enabled. The comment button *only* works with anonymous commenting.

    With My Theme The facebook connect button disappears if I uncheck users must be registered and logged in to comment.

    Just the oposite with my theme http://steveruddyphotography.com/2013/03/on-location-shoot-philo-ca/

    Yes, as I stated in your other thread, this is because you modified your comment form incorrectly.

    To be blunt, if I had this many problems with a plugin, I would have dumped it already. I suggest that you try an alternative plugin. While the SFC plugin is rather "simple", it does require some things like modifying files sometimes, and it's generally not for somebody who doesn't know what they're doing. Integrating Facebook functionality is an "advanced" process, any way you slice it, and the plugin can only simplify things so far.

    Perhaps you should try the official Facebook plugin instead:

    I see I will try and locate the correct place. I did post the code so it would have been nice if the reply said something like you need to move the code to just before this code and just after this code. Explaination of the code doesn't work for all folks. Visual is better.

    Yes I'm fully aware of that and FWIW if your not willing to support users that don't know how to right php you should say it up front instead of posting

    Hey, have you tried the Official Facebook Plugin yet? Maybe you should give that one a shot before trying this one.

    IMO being blunt upfront would be better for you and your users. I will get this to work regardless.

    Here is an update, got it working and here was my error. I only replaced 2 of the 4 [] in the supplied code with <>

    <div id="comment-user-details"] [?php do_action('alt_comment_login'); ?>

    when should have been

    <div id="comment-user-details"> <?php do_action('alt_comment_login'); ?>

    I now have settings/discussion/ Users must be registered and logged in to comment unchecked and I do have the connect to facebook showing and working.

    FWIW it seems that my error somehow created a way for the plugin to work and still have non facebook users required to register and login to comment. I'm not saying if you wanted it to function that way you should try to replicate my mistake to achieve it but just saying that's how it worked for me.

    It's not that I'm not willing to provide support, but I do have a regular job too, and last I checked, the plugin was free. Sorry that I can't take a large chunk of valuable time out of my day to look at your code and debug your problems, but hey guy, I'm kinda busy.

    I'm happy to answer some relatively easy questions because those don't take too long. But if you want me to look at your code and figure out where you went wrong, well, I'm sorry man, but I just don't have that kind of time.

    BTW, if you were using a more modern theme that implemented the comment_form() code properly instead of having it's own custom form code, then you wouldn't have to write any PHP at all. It would just magically work.

    I understand and no worries I got it working and I don't give up. I looked at other plugins and liked this the best so it was worth it for me to keep at it . btw I'm pretty sure I donated something towards your efforts and encourage others to do as well.
