Configuring Your Facebook Comment Box - PHP
Facebook comments are a great way to optimize your site for social media and add a level of user-engagement to you site. Quality website comments can increase your website's credibility, as well as its traffic. This tutorial will teach you how to use Facebook's API Connect to integrate comment boxes on your website in a few simple steps, utilizing a little PHP and some elbow grease.
At this point in the integration process, your Facebook comment box should be working pretty well. However, you can still configure your Facebook comment box according to your needs. To do so, follow these steps:
Login to Facebook.
Go to the website where the comment box has been integrated.
Since you are an administrator, you should see a “Settings” link. Click this link and you will see the configuration parameters for your Facebook comment box. To combat spam and comment abuse, the following are recommended:
a.) Check “Let me approve each comment before it is shown to everyone”. This will ensure that all comments published on your website are helpful in the discussion and related to your website post.
b.) Under Blacklisted words, select “Standard Facebook Restrictions”.
c.) To increase the chances of those that do not have Facebook accounts commenting on your website, check “Allow users to post using other login providers”.
d.) Check “Automatically correct comment grammar mistakes”, so that the comments are grammatically correct.
e.) Under “Comments composer” select “Collapse when there are more than 5 comments”.
Finally click Save to implement the changes. This will be implemented site wide. See screenshot below:
You can moderate all comments on your Facebook developer page:
Go to: https://www.facebook.com/developers/apps.php
Login to your Facebook account.
In your apps, click comment apps and then click “Moderate Comments”. You should then see all of the comments made on your website using Facebook.
