The comments plugin requires an href parameter Solution

The comments plugin requires an href parameter Solution

As I was adding the facebook comments here on Silkenhut’s World, I encountered this error that says,

The comments plugin requires an href parameter.

Well, I managed to fix it using this solution.

First thing you should check would be… have you been using any of the facebook social plugins before?

I have been using one and that would be the “Like us in Facebook” social plugin. I noticed that when I added facebook comments to the blog, the “Like us in facebook” plugin also gave the same error so that gave me an idea that they are related.

What I did was to “reinstall” both social plugins. In re-installing the “Like us in facebook” social plugin, I noticed that I was still using the “old copy paste code” which was conflicting with the new codes. So I got a new code from

and re-installed also facebook comments plug-in. After that, it now works as expected. 🙂

Please let me know if you have other scenarios for this error so we can look at it and help you solve it.

Till next time,

  1. Where do you add the code?

  2. Thanks so much! My issue related to a conflict of an old Connect WP commenting feature conflicting. Now all is good:

    ok, I have one for you….a local tv station has the same comment whereas it used to say you needed to be logged in to facebook to comment. I have not problem whatsoever commenting in facebook. and while I rarely comment on this livestream like, just having it there bothers me. respond to if you have a solution I can understand.
