I have added a Facebook Comments box to my site. When we post in this comment box, it does not sync with the facebook page. So the comments on my yola website do not appear in the facebook page.
Any help please

Hello,
Can you give us a link to the page where this is so that we can take a look. I am unsure of what Widget you are speaking of where you can make a comment on your site, and it will automatically populate on your Facebook page, unless you are speaking of the feature where you can post to your Facebook page when you re-publish your site each time?

Kind Regards,
Emmy

Hi nwbs,

I tested your widget and believe it is working as designed. Posting comments will have it appear on your Yola site and in the posters Facebook stream, not on your Facebook page. I have attached a couple screenshots for your reference.

This is my comment appearing in my Facebook profile:


This is my comment on your website:

Hi Laura.
Thank you for your time and effort.

Please see this link.
https://developers.facebook.com/docs/...

It says:
Distribution: Comments are easily shared with friends or with people who like your Page on Facebook. If a user leaves the “Post to Facebook” box checked when she posts a comment, a story appears on her friends’ News Feed indicating that she’s made a comment on your website, which will also link back to your site.

Friends and people who like the Page can then respond to the discussion by liking or replying to the comment directly in the News Feed on Facebook or in the Comments Box on your site. Threads stay synced across Facebook and on the Comments Box on your site regardless of where the comment was made.

The last sentence tells me that if a comment was made on facebook page or the website, it will appear on both? Am I missing something?

Thanks.
Do appreciate your help.

Hi Harold,

It does appear on both "Facebook and on the Comments Box on your site." As it says, the "story appears on her friends’ News Feed indicating that she’s made a comment on your website, which will also link back to your site." It makes no mention of showing anywhere on your Facebook page, rather it's expected to show up in the "stream" of the people who comment.

There may be widgets that do what you are looking for but I am not familiar with it. I suggest you take a look on Facebook forums or reach out to their support if you need further help with this.
