One of BleepingTech’s reader Aaron john asked a question in our forum regarding configuration of social comments plugin. He also faced a problem while creating the Facebook app. Aaron said, it was asking for a canvas URL. I”m trying to answer his question by installing this social comments plugin. I will specifically focus on Facebook Social Commenting setup using the wordpress social comments plugin and also mention some others as well.
Steps to install and Configure social comments plugin:
- Download and install social comments plugin
- Go to Social Comments under Comments section in your wordpress dashboard
- Check the necessary social commenting settings that you would like to add under the social comments plugin settings.
- Scroll down to Facebook comments settings and put a check mark in the checkbox
- In-order to add the app id, you need to create a Facebook App
Steps to Create a Facebook App:
- Please visit Facebook developers page: https://developers.facebook.com/apps
- Click on create new app and then type the app name without any spaces
- Select the App Category from the list and press the continue button
- You will have to complete the Captcha process and finally you get the app id
- Copy the App id and go back to Social Comments settings page in your wordpress dashboard
- Scroll down to Facebook comment settings and paste the app id and save changes.
