If you have already installed the Fancy Facebook Comments Pro plugin, following are the steps to configure it.
Fancy Facebook Comments Pro – Basic Configuration
Here you can configure the basic things, like font-size, font-family, background color of the Facebook comments box, placement of Facebook Comments box etc. The options are self-explanatory and if you want more details about any particular option, you can click the (?) icon before that option.
Follow the steps mentioned below to moderate the Facebook Comments:
- Navigate to Moderation section at plugin options page
- Generate Facebook App ID and Facebook App Secret as described here and save it in the Facebook App ID and Facebook App Secret options OR if you already have these, save in these options.
- After saving the Facebook App ID, you will see a link right below Facebook App ID option – “Go to moderation dashboard“. This link will redirect you to moderation dashboard where you will see the Facebook Comments made all over your website. If you are not able to see comments there, navigate to Facebook debugger tool and Debug the web page for which you are having issues to see comments. After debugging the web page, refresh the moderation dashboard.
- Facebook App Secret is required only if you want to show recent Facebook Comments in a widget (Recent Facebook Comments) that you can enable from the Appearance > Widgets page in admin.
- If you want to moderate the comments right from the webpage where comments are made, you can save your Facebook account numeric ID in the Moderator FB ID(s) option. Click the (?) icon before this option to get an idea about where to get the numeric ID associated to your Facebook account. After saving it and refreshing any webpage, you will see Moderation Tool option in the Facebook Comments interface at your webpage. If you don’t see it, you need to fetch new scrape information as mentioned in the step 3.
