How To Add Facebook Comment Box To New Blogger

This is a complete tutorial on how to add Facebook Comment box to new Blogger html5. I attribute all kudos to Doncaprio who made available the first FB comment box for the old blogger html codes. I just re-modified it to the new html codes.
I re-modified this tutorial because of much queries from people who need it. So if you had
wanted adding FB comment form to your new blog site but you don’t know how to go about
it, seat tight, get a bottle of coke let’ get the ball rolling.

I’ll divide this tutorial into stages,  and i bet, it will be very easy to understand
STAGE ONE: Creating FaceBook App
The first thing we are going to do here is to create FB app.

1.      
Go to facebook developers page and click on
Apps==>Reg as a new developer ==>accepts the terms and services and every
other things that follows
2. Enter
your app name, name space and choose the category of app you want to create,
click on create and enter captcha code
3.  It will bring you to this stage below  – Just copy your app id
4.Click
on settings by the left side bar – On the next page, enter your custom domain
name (if you’re using a custom domain) or just blogspot.com (if you’re using
blogspot sub domain) in the space provided for App
domain

Then scroll down a bit and
add a platform, select website and enter your url address

5. Hit the save changes. We are done creating the
FB app so copy your App ID and place it on notepad so that you won’t forget cos
you’ll be needing it
Just relax, if you’ve exhausted your bottle of coke, you can kindly get another bottle while we head straight to your blog to finish
this up.
STAGE TWO: Implementing Codes On Blogspot Template
We’ll be adding four piece of codes to your templates

i. xmnls attribute
ii. SDK script
iiI. Open graph meta tag
iv. Comment form iframe code

==>Log in to your blogger
account and click on Template > Edit HTML

Scroll
down to the tail end of the third line before this tag > <head> and add this code below

xmlns:fb='http://www.facebook.com/2008/fbml'

Hence, you should be having this after adding the above codes

<html b:version='2' class='v2' expr:dir='data:blog.languageDirection' xmlns='http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml' xmlns:b='http://www.google.com/2005/gml/b' xmlns:data='http://www.google.com/2005/gml/data' xmlns:expr='http://www.google.com/2005/gml/expr' xmlns:fb='http://www.facebook.com/2008/fbml'>

After then, scroll down and locate this piece of code after the </head> tag

<body expr:class='"loading" + data:blog.mobileClass'>

In the next line, paste this code:

<div id="fb-root">
<script>
window.fbAsyncInit = function() {
FB.init({
appId : 'YOUR APPLICATION ID HERE',
status : true, // check login status
cookie : true, // enable cookies to allow the server to access the session
xfbml : true // parse XFBML
});
};
(function() {
var e = document.createElement('script');
e.src = document.location.protocol + '//connect.facebook.net/en_US/all.js';
e.async = true;
document.getElementById('fb-root').appendChild(e);
}());
</script>

Replace ‘Your App ID Here’ with the Application you copied to your notepad

==>Now, add the open graph meta tag. Search for this code in your template:

</head>

In the line above it, paste this code:

<meta property="fb:app_id" content="YOUR_APP_ID" />

Replace ‘Your App ID’ with thesame you copied

We are almost done just approaching the last part of this tutorial

From
your dashboard, Click on the Jump to widget Tab>>>Click on
Blog1>>> scroll down to  <b:includable id=’post’ and click on the left arrow beside it to expand the codes

==>Look for this piece of code once you’ve expanded the code

<div class='post-footer-line post-footer-line-1'>

In the line just below it, paste this code:

<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType == &quot;item&quot;'>
<style>

.doncaprio-share-buttons
{
-webkit-border-radius: 5px;
-moz-border-radius: 5px;
border-radius: 5px;
border:1px solid #BBBBBB;
background-color:#F2F2F2;
-webkit-box-shadow: #B3B3B3 5px 5px 5px;
-moz-box-shadow: #B3B3B3 5px 5px 5px;
box-shadow: #B3B3B3 5px 5px 5px;
padding: 5px;
margin: 10px;
}
</style>
<p align='center'>

<div class='doncaprio-share-buttons' style='background: #f2f2f2;'>

<font size='6'><strong>Love to hear what you 
think!</strong></font> <img 
src='http://www.doncaprio.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/08/comment.png'/>
<br/>
<script src='http://connect.facebook.net/en_US/all.js#xfbml=1'/>
<div><fb:comments expr:href='data:post.url' 
expr:title='data:post.title' expr:xid='data:post.id' 
width='450'/></div>
<div align='right'><a 
href='http://www.yomiprof.com/2014/01/how-to-add-facebook-comment-box-to-new.html'
 target='blank'><small>[Facebook Comment For 
Blogger]</small></a></div>
</div>
</p>
</b:if>

Save your template and preview your facebook comment box
appear live on your blog.
STAGE 3: Enabling Facebook Notifications On Your Blog
Enabling this lets you know whenever someone comments on
your blog. You get a regular notification on Facebook and you can visit your
blog to reply the comment.
==>Visit this url https://developers.facebook.com/tools/comments/?id=YOUR_APP_ID
==>
replace YOUR_APP_ID with your real application
ID
==> On the page that opens, click on settings and add yourself
as moderator 
That is it. Please if you encounter any problem in the course of implementing this codes on your blog don’t hesitate to let me know. And also, don’t remove the credit link perhaps this tutorial might be of help to someone in need of it.
