I had coded the Facebook comments into my site by hand, but decided to try this plugin in order to get comment notifications (this happened with both the last 2.0 version of the plugin and continues to happen with the new 3.0.X version). The trouble is, upon installing, all my comments are broken.
The problem seems to have something to do with the URL of the page Facebook now think’s it’s commenting on. So if I go to this blog post, for instance:
And scroll down to the Facebook comments, I don’t see the two comments left there earlier, pre-plugin. Furthermore, if I hit the settings button on the Facebook comments, instead of seeing the post’s URL in the “Settings inherited from” at the bottom, I instead get this:
Test comments show up fine, but they’re broken on Facebook’s end. If I share the test comments to my wall, the links back to both my site and my blog post don’t work at all.
Did I setup something wrong? Thanks.
