Adding a Comments Box to Your Stories

Did you know that if you're using Version 3.0, you can add a Facebook Comments Box to your stories?

Using this tool from Facebook, you can add a comments box to your website and have members and site visitors leave comments on your articles or stories.

This box lets people comment on content on your site using their Facebook profile and shows this activity to their friends in the news feed. If you've ever wanted to start a discussion on your site amongst club members and create buzz or hype about an accomplishment, story or upcoming event, this is a great way to accomplish it! Once this comments box has been embedded, all website visitors will see a box such as the one pictured below.

To add this Comments Box to your website, you will need to use a third party tool from Facebook, who provides users with a ClubRunner friendly embed code. Once you get the embed code, you simply need to paste it into the HTML editor of your story. The following article on our knowledgebase provides step by step instructions on accomplishing this: How to Embed a Facebook Comment Box in ClubRunner 3.0.

You also have the option of setting a limit on the number of comments and can customize the width of the comments box. Once you add this custom widget to your site, comment below with the link to your site!

Please note that comments posted using this plugin only are displayed if Facebook is selected from the drop down list and the remaining options listed there will not work.

This is only one of the many ways you can further customize your Version 3 website. We have many more tips coming soon!
