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.

This plugin supposedly has everything I want, but I can't get the comments part of it to function at all.

Most all support history on the developer's website is in Spanish, and while you can post a comment with a question to the developer, I haven't received a response, but have noticed others are having the same problem.

The documentation is lacking as well.

Overall I would give this plugin a 5 stars if it worked properly.

I have to say thanks to the developer for this quick and great plugin. It was installed and configured in minutes. Support from developer was almost in real-time!
It would be perfect if facebook could notify the admin about new comments.

Simple to use, can choose which categories and sections to use in and exclude certain articles.
Thank you!

Got it to work after a couple quick and amicable clarifications from the creator of the plugin. I'd give it a 5 star if it could also display the plugin the blog layout.
