Support » Plugin: SEO Facebook Comment » [Plugin: SEO Facebook Comment] Duplicated comments.

  • Hello.
    Good job with this plugin!
    I want to know why when I publish a comment via “SEO Facebook Comment” it is duplicated in the default comments system.
    So I have all my Facebook comments duplicated in the default comment system.
    And I don’t want to disable the default comments system. But they must be differents.

    Thanks a lot!

    Hi Fotopolis,

    Actually that is a feature of the plugin, it gets all the Comments that are posted on Facebook and replicate it on the WordPress Comment system, allowing all the comments to be indexed by Google since they will render on the Facebook iFrame and also on the WordPress Comment area

    However, this “feature” is not adding the comments to the wp comments area once and stopping there.

    For example, if I have 5 comments on a page via SEO fb comment, these 5 are added to the wordpress comments table EVERY TIME this post is viewed.

    So, if I get 100 visitors for a post on a single day, I end up with 500 duplicate comments in a single day!! 🙁

    Check if the table YOURDBPREFIX_comments_fbseo is being created, this is the table the plugin uses to keep track of which comments were already added and to avoid duplicated comments.

    I was having the same problem so I had to quit the plugin. However, I miss the way it pulls in all FB comments. I checked to see if that table was created, and it was. So what could have been the problem?

    I’m having the same problem here. It’s a very tedious job to delete all the duplicate comments. How to fix this?

    Sorry the below comment was meant for this thread

    If anyone has any issues with this on multi-site – it is most likely because the network activate does not properly create the tables on the individual sites.

    If you network deactivate and then activate on each blog, it will fix the issue. Also a helpful query you can do to eliminate the non-approved comments


    GWA is a great db utility to use for the above query

    Hi, I’m also having the same issue. When someone posts a comment via the FBSEO plugin – it is also being published as a WordPress comment as well;

    Surely it should be one OR the other?

    Is there any way (other than disabling WP comments all together) to stop this duplicate commenting happening or will I have to use a different plugin?
