AL Facebook Comments Box Plugin

AL Facebook Social Comments Box for Joomla easily enables Facebook users to comment on your site's content. The user can share the comment on Facebook on their Wall and in their friends' streams.

Social Relevance: Comments Box uses social signals to surface the highest quality comments for each user. Comments are ordered to show users the most relevant comments from friends, friends of friends, and the most liked or active discussion threads, while comments marked as spam are hidden from view.

Distribution: Comments are easily shared with friends or with people who like your Page on Facebook. If a user leaves the “Post to Facebook” box checked when she posts a comment, a story appears on her friends’ News Feed indicating that she’s made a comment on your website, which will also link back to your site.

Friends and people who like the Page can then respond to the discussion by liking or replying to the comment directly in the News Feed on Facebook or in the Comments Box on your site. Threads stay synced across Facebook and on the Comments Box on your site regardless of where the comment was made.

Great plugin m8. thanks for free sharing.

I think there is no support for K2 articles, if this support is added this plug-in will be a must for any site..

Great plug-in. Worked out of the box. I especially appreciate the possibility to use the facebookcss for black background.

Having wrestled with installing FB comments on many systems over the past year, this one was surprisingly simple to install.

Works and looks great, right out the box, and the built in social sharing bar is an impressive add on.

The only thing missing is step-by-step documentation. (Currently, the developer simply directs you to Facebook's documentation, which to most users seems scarier than it actually is.)

In short, install the plugin, go to the link to Facebook apps and create a new app. I recommend bookmarking the link to the comments moderation page on Facebook, and this (not your site admin) is where you will need to approve or hide comments.

Nice job Alex. Bien hecho!

Owner's reply

Thank you for your rating, but I wish you have contacted me before posting questions here as this is not the pace to do it.
Please read the "moderation" section on this page

hello, simple and good plugin. i just wonder how to remove the "facebook social plugin" link and how to set this to dutch. Facebook app id? what is this for?
For the rest, great work!
Owner's reply

Hello, I wish you have contacted me before posting questions here, but answering your questions, you can hide the link using the advanced settings in the plugin, dutch language still not available and the Facebook app ID is used if you want to moderate comments.

I really love this plugin and it works great. I know most free extensions have a backlink to the owner's site, I am wondering is there a way to remove 'Web Design Brisbane" link. Please let me know.
Owner's reply

Hello Nimmi, you can change this on the advanced settings of the plugin, please download the latest version as there was a languaje problem on an older version.

It's great to make a free extension and it looks like a good one but it's not so great to include a spammy link back to your website - Web Design Brisbane. Especially as the link is in white text. Learn SEO.

Poor show.
Owner's reply

If you were a little intelligent and investigate a bi more you will know most free extensions have a backlink (NOT SPAM) to the owner's site, there is also a setting in my plugin where you can turn this link off. As for the LIE about white text you should LEARN css as your site must have a poorly developed code breaking links making them white, not the plugin, a more common sense person would contact me before and I would help, but surely you are not this kind of person when you are just opening an account to make such an unfair comment and vote.

One of the first times I've gotten anything to do with FB to work as planned (lately). With all the things FB is changing most developers have yet to catch up. I was skeptical of this one but tried it anyway. Worked so well I removed the previously installed share button and J-Comments from my 1.5 install. Everything worked as planned. The only thing I would like to see is some more options as to what order to put buttons in. Share button right up against like button didn't look so hot. Easy to read code I was able to change share button to last in line and float right. Works and looks perfect now!

This is replacing any other type of comment system out there.
• No or non-existant spam
• Post as yourself (Facebook Profile) or (Facebook Page) administrator.
• Manage comments (remove & Hide)
• Follow or not conversation
• Post or not to Facebook
• Easy to style (not the Facebook Part)
• All the good it does for SEO and having feedback from your visitors
• Sending the article and/or the conversation to multiple socials channels and by email is a bonus.

Works really well, but is lacking in proper documentation as to how to configure the app ID etc.

The plugin works fine. But it changes the Meta Content of every page to the meta content of homepage. Please work on that and resolve it.
Owner's reply

Hello puneet_jain, the only meta content that the plugin changes if the Facebook meta tags (it has to be that way), if your pages don't have any Joomla meta description, it uses the global description, there is nothing to fix on the plugin about meta tags, please ad meta description to your pages if you don't want the global description in to all pages.

It is a great plugin!!!

Works Like a Charm... One should just know how to enter facebook app ID and URL in its configuration!

--> Keep up the good work!
