The FacebookComments extension adds Facebook comments on every page.


  • Download and place the file(s) in a directory called FacebookComments in your extensions/ folder.
  • Add the following code at the bottom of your LocalSettings.php file:
    require_once "$IP/extensions/FacebookComments/FacebookComments.php";
    $wgFacebookAppId = 'YOUR_FACEBOOK_APP_ID'; // optional
  • Yes Done – Navigate to Special:Version on your wiki to verify that the extension is successfully installed.


Install the OpenGraphMeta extension and give the appid in the opengraph parameters and it will enable the facebook integration with appid. Open graph is required for generating the appid as meta property in <head>. Without opengraph, facebook comment will work but administrator or moderators won't be able to see the comments under appid in developer facebook, and also won't be able to moderate the comments.
