Facebook comment box for blogger blog

Hi All,

Here is a piece of text from Facebook developers Blog..

Since Facebook Connect launched, we've seen over 6,000 developers make their sites more social using Facebook Connect. One of the most common features we've seen sites add with Facebook Connect is the ability to allow users to log in with a single click and comment with their real name and profile photo from their Facebook account. Sites have seen as much as 40-50% more comments since they launched added these features.

Watch this video to have a more general idea about FB comment box.

This way, the comment box does not show on the main page
Any solution?

@Guarav Ahuja
Yes, This way it will not show comment box on homepage, It will show only when you are on item page (specifice post page).
To show it on every page, remove tag <b:if...> and </b:if>, i.e 1st and 18th line. It will work.

the box is on my blog, but when people write a comment, it does not publish it to facebook.

Your application ID may be wrong. Generate it from http://developers.facebook.com/docs/reference/plugins/comments and use it in the script given in step 3. It will surely work.

Waqar Ahmad said...

Yes, there is way to do that, Very soon, I'll modify the script and publish it after testing. To get notification, you may subscribe to updates via email.
