Import Facebook note comments into WordPress using Facebook CommentsTNG

Facebook allows you to quickly and easily import an external blog from another website. See the Facebook help pages if you want to find out how to do this.

This is great, but after a blog post had been imported as a note, Facebook users are likely to comment on it in Facebook. If you are using blogging with WordPress and want to have all your comments in one place, there is a WordPress plugin that can help you: Facebook CommentsTNG. It will automatically scan your Facebook notes for imported WordPress blog posts and bring the comments back into WordPress.

This is an excellent plugin which builds on the idea of the Facebook Comments plugin, which no longer works (probably due to changes in way Facebook notes are marked up).

Check out the author’s page for the plugin: Facebook CommentsTNG.

    it’s unfortunately not working on my computer.
    I got the following message error.

    Warning: curl_setopt() [function.curl-setopt]: CURLOPT_FOLLOWLOCATION cannot be activated when safe_mode is enabled or an open_basedir is set in /home/www/9ba4efd6199544586e1ed9a0bb346086/web/wp-content/plugins/facebook-commentstng/fbntng.php on line 55

    Can you help me?

  2. my blogs are exported /imported int facebook with a short code url..

    will this plugin recognise this fact and still import comments from facebook into my wordpress account ?

    or does the url in facebook need to be the full url and not a short url ?

    Hello there i have troubles with comments on my site, they dont show up allways, im using 3 fb accounts from 3 browser on my pc and on everyone of them i see different comments! How can i debug this, i havent found other way to have fb comments on my homepage.

    I have tried pretty much all FB comments integration plugins and i didint find single one of them that is able to show comments in my loop on the homepage!

    This is the only way i manage to show them on homepage but it is buggy for me and all comments wont show up.
