Facebook Commenting

Longform supports Facebook commenting. Setting up FB comments is easy:

  • First, head to the Facebook Developer site and either create a new account or sign in if you already have one. Once you're logged in, click "Create New App."
  • Input any name you'd like for your hypothetical app (you're not actually making one, don't worry), do the safety dance, and click Continue. From here, you should be taken to your new app's info page.
  • Copy the App ID located just below your app's name (at the top of the page) and you're all set. Now head back to your blog and input your API ID into the "Facebook API ID" field in the customization sidebar, and make sure you've checked "Facebook Comments" on.

Disqus Commenting

Longform also supports Disqus commenting. Simply input your Disqus shortname into the corresponding field in the customization options.

Infinite Scroll: click to load

Longform allows you to toggle between traditional pagination and 'click-to-load' infinite scroll. Note that mobile devices, including tablets, will always display traditional pagination.
