Using Facebook Comments

Using Facebook Comments

To moderate facebook comments you have two options:  moderating comments with your Facebook username or moderating comments with an app ID.  The difference is that with your facebook user ID you can only moderate comments by checking each post to see if there has been a comment.  You will be notified of comments and there is no central location to moderate all comments left on your blog.  If you use an app ID you can login to one central location to moderate all comments left on your blog.

To moderate with your Facebook user ID:

  1. Go Facebook and login. 
  2. Go to your profile page and look at the URL.  It should say something like "http://www.facebook.com/joesmith7" or "http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=123456789".  Depending on your case your user ID is "joesmith7" or "123456789".
  3. Go to the ITDR Admin panel in WordPress > Setup > Social Media > type in your Facebook ID into the "Facebook Username" field.  Save.
  4. Wait a few minutes as it takes some time to kick in.
  5. Now to moderate your comments go the comments in an entry and you will see a "Moderator View".

 

To moderate with an app ID:

  1. Go Facebook and login.  
  2. Go to http://developers.facebook.com/
  3. Click "Apps" in the navigation.  Click "Allow" if prompted.
  4. Click "Create a New App".
  5. Title the app, read the terms if you're a reader ;), and click agree, click "Create App".
  6. Fill out the captcha if it comes up.
  7. Locate the section titled "Select how your app integrates with Facebook" near the bottom, Click "Website", and type in your "Site URL". (this must be an exact match AND include a trailing slash "/")
  8. Locate and copy the app ID.
  9. Go to the ITDR Admin panel in WordPress > Setup > Social Media > type in your app ID into the "Facebook App ID" field.  Save.
  10. Wait a few minutes as it takes some time to kick in.
  11. Now to moderate your comments you can go to http://developers.facebook.com/tools/comments/.  It is also worth noting that you can change the settings by click the "Settings" button on the right of this screen.

 

"To add multiple moderators, separate the uids by comma without spaces."
