Facebook Comments Plugin not notifying me by email WordPress

  • SOLVED

Hi guys,

Hope all is good with you wherever you are in the world.

Having a problem with my facebook comments plugin. All is working well, bar the fact that I am not notified by email when people leave a comment.

I'm assuming that one of my other plugins (possibly Facebook and Twitter share buttons plugin or my jetpack) is the culprit, but I don't know how to fix.

Can anyone help me out?

One other small thing is that I want to centre the facebook like button (jetpack) in the sidebar, so if you could help me with that also, that would be great.

Cheers,

Ben

Hello,

Plugin hasn't been updated in over 2 years(notification), you can try this plugin instead : http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/ultimate-facebook-comments-email-notify

Also, don't forget to set Moderators in your Facebook Application

hope this help :-)

Oh, okay.

It says 'This plugin will only work if you have Facebook Social Comments box already installed on your blog'

I have Facebook Comments for Wordpress Version 3.1.3 | By we8u

Will it work for it too, or do I need to find the one called Facebook Social Comments box?

Daniel Yoen comments:

From description : "Ultimate Facebook Comments Email Notify/Notification WordPress Plugin is compatible with all plugins."

So, please try :-)


benjaminconnor comments:

Okay, will try it when I get home.

Have to leave work and get on a train.

Thanks Daniel!

@benjaminconnor replace

<script>(function(d, s, id) {
var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];
if (d.getElementById(id)) return;
js = d.createElement(s); js.id = id;
js.src = "//connect.facebook.net/es_ES/all.js#xfbml=1&appId=197417077063767";
fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, fjs);
}(document, 'script', 'facebook-jssdk'));</script>

with this in the footer

<script type='text/javascript' src='http://connect.facebook.net/en_US/all.js'></script>

It should solve your problem


benjaminconnor comments:

Hi Dhruba,

Sounds good, but sorry, i don't understand.

Where am I doing this? Is this in the plugins editor?

Cheers,

Ben


DHRUBA BHOWMIK comments:

@benjaminconnor replace

yes, this is plugins editor.

use this plugin http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/facebook/

and then
you can put this code wherever you want your comment to appear

<fb:comments href="<?php echo urlencode(get_permalink($post->ID)); ?>" num_posts="200" width="690"></fb:comments>

if you cant figure it out what I have written contact me personally at [email protected]




benjaminconnor comments:

Hi Dhruba,

I'm so sorry, I should have notified you earlier. I contacted Daniel Yoen by email and he has fixed the problem.

I will be awarding the money to him for this as I did not use your advice.

Let me know if you do not think this is fair.

Cheers,

Ben
