[Social Widget] How to moderate comments

If you want to be able to moderate the comments created in your store you need to identify your Facebook user id as an administrator of the store. In order to do this, follow the steps below:

Go to your Theme > Layout >Theme.liquid file


Add in your template inside the head namespace the following

<meta property="fb:admins" content="{YOUR_FACEBOOK_USER_ID}"/>

** Please make sure it is a personal Facebook user ID, not your page ID. If the user ID does not work, try you username.

For instance.


In order to find your Facebook user id you need to.

Go to this url and then you will see either an url that includes your Facebook user id.

http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=[Your user ID]

or an url that includes your username.

https://www.facebook.com/[your user name]

In this case there is an additional step. You need to go to the following url and you will see your user id.

http://graph.facebook.com/[your user name]


Once you do this, you will be able to see the moderation controls in the comments widget.
