Facebook Comments for WordPress 3.1.1

I just released 3.1.1, which adds a dark style option for dark sites for users of v2 comment system, and also fixes a bug. This latter should fix the slowness some people were experiencing.

see here for a demo and for more information.

If you have any issues, post a comment below with the exact issue so other people can “thumbs-up” if they are having the same.

This makes it easier to keep track of issues with the current version, instead of having a mass of comments which may or may not be relevant.

Facebook Comments for WordPress 3.1 Released

3.1 is released. Here’s what’s changed:

  • Important: I highly recommend using “v2 only”, as it is, by far, the most feature-filled. If you have old comments, you can use “Display both v1 and v2 comments”
  • Issue: If you see Warning: http://example.com/example_post is unreachable., make sure your app settings are correct (enter http://example.com/ for “Site URL” and example.com for “Site Domain”, note the lack of http or a trailing slash, this is important)
  • Feature: Like button integrated into plugin. Enable on settings page. You can fully customize it there as well.
  • Feature: Like button can also be added to the top or bottom of each post on the site’s main page (same “like” count as the one in comments)
  • Feature: Comment count for ‘v2 only’ comments now displayed. Customizable on plugin’s settings page.
  • Settings: Reorganized settings page to make clear what applies to which version of facebook comment system
  • Bugfix: Users should no longer see “Fatal error: Cannot use object of type WP_Error as array in wp-content/plugins/facebook-comments-for-wordpress/facebook-comments-admin.php on line 71″
  • Bugfix: “Comments Closed” should no longer display inappropriately
  • Bugfix: The ‘delete’ link on the dashboard recent comments widget is functional again
  • Bugfix: A request to facebook that times out no longer incorrectly asserts that the application ID is incorrect
  • Bugfix: No longer dies if facebook is unreachable (i.e., no more “Uncaught CurlException: 6: [...] name lookup timed out thrown on line 622″)
  • Bugfix: …and no more “Uncaught CurlException: 1: [...] thrown on line 519″
  • Bugfix: Activation should no longer be slow on sites with many comments
  • Bugfix: Other small edge case bug fixes

see here for a demo and for more information.
