Installation and configuration videotutorial:

1. Log in to the Facebook Developer application: http://www.facebook.com/developers/

2. Create a new application, more info: http://developers.facebook.com/get_started.php

3. Upload the `fbconnect` folder to the `/wp-content/plugins/` directory

4. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress

5. Configure the plugin through the ‘Facebook Connector’ section of the ‘Settings’ menu

6. Use the Facebook App info (step 2) to configure the plugin

7. Create a new template for comments.

9. Important: If you dont see the Facebook Connect login button and the user photos (on IExplorer), you need to modify your «header.php» theme file:

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xmlns:fb="http://www.facebook.com/2008/fbml">

  1. The install instructions need to be updated. I am on the verge of giving up and using a different plugin.

    For instance, with the Thesis compatible plugin it says to uncompress in the themes directory. I have done that, and it says the theme is incomplete. I also cannot find any fbconnect plugin as well.

    I tried v 1.2.1 as well, uncompressed and moved into the plugins directory, and no fbconnect plugin is shown. When I open the folder, the files look nothing like what is in the video.

    Is there a place to find updated instructions?


  2. Javier! Saludos desde Uruguay tocayo!!! te felicito por el plugin es realmente excelente, pero ultimamente me ha surgido un grave problema que quisiera comentartelo. El problema surgue cuando un X usuario quiere ingresar por primera vez mediante su cuenta Facebook al sitio. Es rarisimo ya que al parecer el usuario logra ingresar mediante facebook pero su usuario no es registrado como usuario wordpress, osea, el usuario esta auntentificado mediante facebook pero no existe como usuario wordpress, esto lleva a que el plugin sea practicamente inservible. Es como que el nuevo usuario esta pero no esta. Es raro, el problema empezo a surgir hace una, dos semanas aprox. Espero que me ayudes, te agradezco de tu tiempo.

    Saludos desde Uruguay!!!

    • me pasa lo mismo! y tambien e tenido problemas con un plugin similar llamado simple facebook connect, el unico q parece funcionar es el plugin oficial de facebook :S me imagino q debe de ser una pabada el problema…

  3. Ok, now I’m having issues connecting the comment to Facebook. I get this message…

    Application response error
    Supplied template data does not cover the following tokens [post_title, body_short] needed for template ‘{*actor*} commented on http://shackn.com, post title: {*post_title*}, {*body_short*} .’ You can see this because you are one of the developers of the app.

  4. Great plugin – and it works well. However, we get one error : If you check the box that says post this comment to facebook – we get an error message from Facebook to the effect that there was an application error. Is there anything to be changed in the Application Settings on facebook for this to work ? Thanks
