wordpress facebook plugin

Hello I found a wordpress blog when people posts through facebook account: http://www.puppetshow.fr/

Can someone tell me exactle what is the WP plugin to make such blog ? I found MANY WP/facebook plugins but I need exactly this one.

(and what theme is used in this blog) ?

I guess this worpress plugin will be the solution for this. This is a pure WP plugin that enables the FB comments in your blog.

The theme they're using is FastBlog, a Premium ThemeForest theme - http://www.wp-magazine-themes.com/fastblog-premium-wordpress-theme-by-themeforest/

They're not using a plugin for the Facebook stuff, it's custom built using Facebook's available API. See Facebook developer for more info - http://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/

they use wordpress and they don't use plugins ?
Seems strange. They are dozens of facebook plugins avaible for WP, so I am quite sure they do use, but I do'nt know which one.

According to the source code for their site, they're not using any of the Facebook plugins. They're using other plugins, just not one for Facebook.

Implementing code using the Facebook API is sometimes the best bet to get exactly what you want.  It's also actually much easier than you might think.

They're using fb:comments.

Yes. mjjdesigns is correct. They are using FB API to build this custom FB comment system. I've seen this other places too. (sitepoint had this feature when they did the Xmas sale last time. That was just a static page ;)  )

I beg to differ:

if you look at the source code you will see they are using the following for the comments box:

 <div id="fb-root"></div><script src="http://connect.facebook.net/en_US/all.js#appId=132991490100822&amp;xfbml=1"></script>

<fb:comments href="http://www.puppetshow.fr/puppet/facebook-rachete-groupon" num_posts="10" width="720"></fb:comments>

This is the FB 'social plugin' 'comments http://developers.facebook.com/docs/reference/plugins/comments/

@johndoeherty - while that is technically a plugin, it's not a WordPress plugin, which is what he was after.

It's not quite as easy to install as a WordPress plugin would be, still certainly doable with a few lines of code, but not as easy as "click to activate".

Ah, you're right, but I find your comments very confusing:

we should try and make it clear:

- they are using the FB social plugin 'comments' (NOT the FB API!) to render the comments
- nobody knows whether or not they are using a WP plugin to automatically render the code for the FB comments plugin

-> I assume it's just a matter of adding something like the following to your WP Template (see here for template tags)


<div id="fb-root"></div><script src="http://connect.facebook.net/en_US/all.js#appId=132991490100822&amp;xfbml=1"></script>

<fb:comments href=" <?php the_permalink(); ?> " num_posts="10" width="720"></fb:comments>
