You can use following attributes in the Shortcode


Use style attribute to style the rendered interface

[Fancy_Facebook_Comments style="background-color:#000;"]


Use title attribute to specify title above commenting interface.

[Fancy_Facebook_Comments title="Comment Time!"]


Use url attribute to specify the target url for comments. This defaults to the page where shortcode is used.

[Fancy_Facebook_Comments url="http://mywebsite.com/page2"]


Use heading_tag attribute to specify the HTML tag for the title text. This defaults to “div”.

[Fancy_Facebook_Comments title="Fancy Facebook Comments" heading_tag="h3"]

[Fancy_Facebook_Comments num_comments="5"]

Replace SHORTCODE in above code with the required shortcode like [Fancy_Facebook_Comments style=”background-color:#000;”], so the final code looks like following
<?php echo do_shortcode('[Fancy_Facebook_Comments style="background-color:#000;"]') ?>
