How to Add Facebook Social Comment Box on any Website or WordPress

Facebook Social Plugins
are a set of plugins that enables social interactions on your website. Not to mention the huge user base Facebook has developed along the time. Previously, it was a pretty much a hassle to go through the Facebook connect implementation for a website. Now with Facebook Social Plugins things are much more simpler to implement and use. Lets take a look how easily we can implement a Facebook Social Comment box for virtually any website that allows HTML and Javascript.

Here are the steps:

  1. Create a Facebook Application for your website. This step is required and all the fields must be filled up.

    Site name : Your Site Name
    Site URL:
    Locale: English (or your preferred language)
  2. Now you need to fill up a Captcha to confirm creation of the Facebook Application for your site.
  3. Once you click Submit on step 2, you would be able to see the confirmation page with your Application ID and Application Secret. You can modify your existing Applications at My Apps page.
  4. Now go  to Facebook Social Comments site. Fill up the URL where you want to put your comment box to. Enter the number of Default comments to be shown and finally enter the width of the comments box.

    NOTE: The URL can be a single HTML or Dynamic page too (eg.
  5. Once you are done with step 4, you can click the Get Code button to get/copy the necessary codes for your site.
    facebook comments code
  6. Create a empty HTML file on your website (eg. index.html). Then paste the code in between <body> and </body> section of the HTML file. Save the file and upload to your server.

    NOTE: Your Website APP ID is pasted inside the meta property for facebook underneath the <head> tags.
  7. Open the file you have just created using your browser, you should be able to start posting comments on that page. Yes that’s about it.



I must also say this is just a simple implementation of Facebook Social Comment at your website. There might be more options available for you to implement if you go through the documentation.


How to Implement the Comments Box on WordPress:

  1. Follow the Procedures mentioned on the previous steps and after then
  2. Look for the file comments.php inside your themes folder (the name of the theme depends on which WordPress theme you are using)
  3. Open and edit the file using a text editor. Modify the code you have found on the previous implementation (Which is for using it on a standard website) as below.

    NOTE: You need to change the part href=”<?php echo get_permalink($post->ID); ?>”
  4. Paste the code into upper part of your comments.php file. Save and Upload it back to your server.
  5. You should be able to see the Facebook Dynamic Comments for all your WordPress posts.



Where do you manage/moderate and administer your comments?


Do not post Test comments on this post because it confuses other people who are reading this post.

Eventually your test comments will be blocked and Banned.

Test it on your own site. Thanks.

This article is an upgrade of the previous Facebook Connect Comment Box article for your website.

So what on earth will happen is may perhaps is very a large number of tshirts which usually are part of typically the movie channels, to start with tshirts while using particular personas relating to.

    So this layout is what i want to avoid on my blog! You have a wordpress comment box showing comments, a facebook comment box with its own set of comments then 2 different like buttons showing 2 different numbers.

    I’d like to consolidate. I’d like all facebook and wordpress comments to be grouped together and appear seamless. All comments seen on WP styled as dictated by my theme, these same commentsm also seen in facebook. So all facebook comments added to the WP database and all comments in the WP database exported to facebook.

    Has this been done? If so can someone show be a blog where this happens? thanks

    they can hear and see what your visually thinking

    the reason alot of asians have completely expressionless faces, only associate with asians and dont associate with non asians very much is to avoid accidentally revealing that they can read read minds, if all over a billion asians were to show facial expressions all the time just as much as non asians, associate with non asians much more, and be much more friendly and talkative, then alot of them might accidentally reveal that they can read minds by accidentally showing a facial expression or dirty look when someone thinks, or visually pictures something in their mind they dont like or find astonishing or funny, and if they were all to associate with non asians alot more there would be alot more people around for them to accidentally show facial expressions when those other people think things they dont like, so they only associate with asians so there wont be anyone around for them to see that and have any accidents happen in the first place

    think about it, its not normal how alot of them act, and the entire way they act is all to hide their mind reading abilities, it makes perfect sense to do all of that to hide that they can read minds, because all of that is the perfect way to do it!
    every single asian on the planet is hiding their mind reading abilities, they value hiding their mind reading abilities more then their own lives!
    thats why nobody knows about it!

    try thinking, best yet visually picturing in your mind something something absolutely crazy as you possibly can when you are around asians, and try looking for asians who give people particular looks, especially dirty looks for what appears to be for completely no reason, that is them giving people looks when they hear and visually see someone thinking something they dont like, find funny or astonishing
    it still happens despite a large number of them having completely expressionless faces all the time, it would just happen alot more if none of them had completely expressionless faces all the time, its not uncommon!

    i know this sounds crazy, impossible, and completely unbelievable, BUT IT ISNT CRAZY WHEN ITS TRUE

    you have to spread the message!!!
    the world has to know about this!!!!

People in the US  seem to see the box, but people who have their language set to Spanish or actually if their Facebbok was created in Mexico, can’t see it. Is there any way we can fix this? I was thinking creating two comment boxes? one for each? What do you think? Would this work? Thank you before hand! =)

    Great tutorial, some question, based on number 6 do I really need to create a blank html page for this to work? or I can only used my index.php,header.php or in page file in wordpress,by the way my site powered by wordpress.

    • Ruhani Rabin March 15, 2011, 4:44 pm

      Hi you don’t really need a blank HTML file, i could go anywhere where HTML is supported.. For WordPress you might need to do coding to resolve your dynamic URL inside the tag ( example fb:comments href=”ID)); ?>” ) you get the idea..

  • custom essays March 15, 2011, 10:56 am

    Thanks for interesting and very useful information.

  • Amir Mishani March 15, 2011, 5:08 am

    Hey bro how do you customize the style on the new comments plugin, on the old one you could insert a CSS style sheet and figure out the IDs and give them your own styling but it doesn’t seem to work on the new comments plugin.

    • Ruhani Rabin March 15, 2011, 5:47 am

      Hi Amir, Few days before I saw the documentation and there is no mention of any custom CSS.. you can check it again and confirm

    hi ruhani..gone thru all those steps but failed at step 6 and 7..
    if i’m a blogger and hosted ad blogspot[dot]com. ,how to made the html files on HTML code?
    i had pasted things in step 5 but it does not visible in my blog..

    • Ruhani Rabin March 12, 2011, 1:35 pm

      blogspot uses dynamic URLs so it would be really difficult without doing code hacking.. try to debug your site using FireBug..

    how do we delete(the user/admin) these comments if offensive?

    • Ruhani Rabin March 12, 2011, 11:39 am

      Each url has it’s admin link.. you can either find it on myapps or you can find the link at the comment page itself .. (if your FB id is the owner)

    why do people do this? seriously? is that because they think that everybody has a facebook account ? what if not? cause in reality it is not! i think it is wrong decision to put those boxes everywhere!

    • Vin March 11, 2011, 7:13 pm

      Actually, the Comments Box even lets users without a Facebook account comment. But it’s helpful because for the 600 million people who do have Facebook accounts and spend more time there than any other site, links to your web site get posted to their newsfeeds. It drives traffic and helps their friends discover the site.

    • Ruhani Rabin March 12, 2011, 3:41 am

      Facebook social comments box allows adding comments system to a static website without knowing of any dynamic coding.. just as simple as copy paste..

  • Kiralylorand March 11, 2011, 12:49 am

    i have a question, how can i put different comment box in different page, an comment box for every game from my site and to be able to see the insights? please help me, can you explain me on my mail please?

    • Ruhani Rabin March 11, 2011, 4:47 am

      Hi, you need to repeat step 4 and 5 for every game pages of your site ( or ) and copy paste the corresponding codes to respected pages. And of course you need to create an app for your website first.

      • dbc March 13, 2011, 12:16 am

        Actually this is not really true, as you see in the picture at step 5 you have “a href” in where you can change the url yourself into a dynamic code, depending on what coding or cms you use you can put in code to retrieve current url and echo it into the href tag.

    Hi Ruhani
    I have heard that it should be possible to allow anonymous comments in the new Facebook Social Comments module. Do you know if this is true? And if true – how do you set it up?
    Thank you for a great wizard.

    • Ruhani Rabin March 9, 2011, 3:48 pm

      It might be possible if you are not already logged in to facebook. Most probably the default comment box would work

    Question (after explanation)

    I registered an App (website) with Facebook so that I could install a Facebook Comments box to that website. My root index.htm is a split frames page with the website navigation menu page topframe.htm static in the top frame. I installed a Facebook Comments Box in the page that loads in the bottom frame – bottomframe.htm. When a User posts a comment that also posts to their facebook page, the Link is for bottomframe.htm and not the index.htm page with the Menu that I want people to link to. I have been unable to find an answer on Facebook.

    Can someone here instruct me on how to set up my Facebook Connect “app” so that the Posted link refers to index.htm and not bottomframe.htm?

    • Vin March 11, 2011, 7:16 pm

      Go into your developer settings for the app, and find “Site URL” – that should be the URL you want your app to link to.

      Check the href field in your fb:comments tag on your page. That should be the url you want comments to link back to.

      You might need to set up a way to dynamically load content in the bottomframe.htm depending on some extra querystring in the URL for index.htm, if you’re not able to pull off what you were trying to do.

    • Vin March 11, 2011, 7:18 pm

      For that you need to implement other elements of Facebook. Look at the other Facebook Social Plugins on their site to see what’s helpful for you. There are many different ways to implement it. Regardless of whether or not people register with your site using Facebook, the comments box works the same way.

    This is pretty nice feature but like somebody else mention here in comments it's not really easy to manage the comments. Maybe I can't find or there (on Facebook) are not any feature to see all comments at one single place and manage it there. You should visit all the pages and subpages with comments and check whats new – if there is any new comment. In Wordpress you have all comments for all posts at one single place. With facebook comment box this is not the case (or I just can't find this).

    One thing I don't like right now is the lack of ability to simply moderate comments and see statistics. I know this is probably all possible via the graph API but for the common users…this is not an easy task
