Facebook Comments Section

This section allows you to have a Facebook Comments widget embedded into your ZP pages. You only need to provide your Facebook App ID to configure this section.

Your Facebook App ID can be created/obtained in your Developer Facebook account

More details regarding a Developer Facebook account and App ID can be found here: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/apps/register.

Once you have your Facebook App ID, you can add a Facebook Comments section to your ZP page(s) by following these steps: 

Step 1: Choose the Facebook Comments section from the Plugins section of the page section library:

A new Facebook Comments element can also be added to any existing section on the page by clicking on the "add element" button above/below an existing element and selecting the "Facebook" element:

📝*Only 1 Facebook Comments section or element can be added per page.

Step 2: Click directly on the Facebook Comments element in the builder to open the settings in the sidebar:

Step 3: Copy and paste your App ID into field. You will not be able to publish the page until the Facebook App ID is provided for the Facebook Comments section.

The Facebook Comments widget will only be shown on the published page once you update/publish the page:

Comments Moderation

Once a page visitor leaves a comment, it becomes available within the admin's Facebook account for moderation. More details on Comments Moderation can be found here: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/comments#moderation

To use the comments moderation tool, you need to complete the moderation setup instructions.

Setup using a Facebook App (Preferred)

If your site has many comments boxes, we recommend you specify a Facebook app ID as the managing entity, which means that all app administrators can moderate comments. Doing this enables a moderator interface on Facebook where comments from all plugins administered by your app ID can be easily moderated together.

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

You can easily add this Meta Property to your ZP page(s) either Globally (used on all pages) or Locally (used on a specific page) using the </>Scripts feature. 

Just add the following to the Header within the </>Scripts section and Update your page to apply it live:

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

If you followed all of the steps above (which includes installing the code in your Header), and the moderation is not working, it might be that Facebook is caching your site without the moderation tool.

When you debug/scrape your page, it should show your Facebook app ID—if it does not, you haven't included it on your site correctly and should try again.
