Facebook Comments

IMPORTANT: Facebook comments isn’t working right now, I’m looking for someone to take over this to make it work. Leave a comment.

Basically a new version can start using the facebook comments API for notes, but will still have to match note ids to wordpress URLs by screen scraping facebook like the original plugin.

Old Info:
For a while I’ve been using Adam Hill’s facebook comment importer, to get comments from facebook back in to my blog. I recently realised it wasn’t working, so I tried Thomas Albright’s edit, no joy there either. Did some debugging and got it working my self. You can download it here: facebooknotes.php.

All new changes have been commented incase they need to be moved back, though I think my version is the only one being actively maintained at the moment.

Change Log:
Latest fixes for facebook with changes from Benjamin Trice
Option to not import comments for posts whose comment status is closed.
Should work for pages and situations where there facebook user specified in wordpress isn’t friends with the commenter on the note.
Removed debug statement
Fix for the latest version of facebook!
Option not to notify (email) of new comments from facebook
Option to import from every page of notes from facebook, not just the first one.
Version 2.5.1 introduced that the GUID might not be the permalink (http://trac.wordpress.org/ticket/6492). The plugin now uses a different method for converting the URL to a post ID. Should also fix some earlier problems with the “Original Comment Post Not Found” error.
Version 0.26 with fix for latest facebook HTML mark up
Fix added by Aaron Harp to allow thie plugin to work with feedburner
