Thread: Facebook comments plug in plus Related Posts with Thumbnail plug in

    Default Facebook comments plug in plus Related Posts with Thumbnail plug in

    I'm looking for two specific plug ins for my blog and am not having a lot of luck.

    First one is a Facebook Comments Plug In like the one that is on the MYNAMS blog, so that visitors can post comments using their facebook account.


    Second one is a Related Posts with Thumbnail Plug In that a lot of bloggers are using to show their featured image with the title of their post with it. I believe Christine Cobb uses this plug in.

    Can anyone point me in the right direction on where to find these?

    James - the Facebook plugin is easy. That's MAXFBSEO premium plugin. Great support and works well. There's two versions:

    Personal site and developer site. Just click the one you're interested in.

    Hey Dave. Thanks for your response.

    I found another plug in that did the same thing ... it's called SEO Facebook Comments and works in much the same way. It came with good support on how to set it up as well.

    Also Christine Cobb helped me find the second widget I was looking for.

    It's called Outbrain and it creates a small thumbnail of the related post. So far it works well.

    I'm just setting up a new site, using OptimizePress. Looks like a FB comments comes with it. I'll give more feedback once I've sussed it out more.

    Optimize Press does have Facebook comments. You have to set up a Facebook app first and then drop in the App ID into Optimize Press. They have instructions about how to set up an app if you've never done it.

    I started using Wordbooker plugin. It has many options including tailoring where to post to and what to do with comments. I have it set to post to my personal wall and occasionally to a community site I help administer.

    You can set it by specific post for complete control.

    I can have it send comments both ways (from blog to fb and fb comments to my blog).

    I'm still learning some of the finer points, but overall it is a great plugin.

    I'm curious if there is a performance edge with it coming with the theme.

    All of my themes are personally designed using a tool called Artisteer so I am limited to using plugins because, while technical to a point, I have no skill or interesting in poking around in php.
