Question:

How to import facebook comments to Wordpress database?

Aria: 2 weeks ago

I want to get rid of Facebook Comments from my website, but I have a lot of comments there. Is it possible to import facebook comments to normal Wordpress comments system or something else (i.e. disqus?) I just can't find anything. Thank you in advance.

You can use facebook's graph API to write a script that will import the comments from facebook into your site. Then Disqus can import your comments from the site.

This is the api instructions (https://developers.facebook.com/docs/graph-api/reference/v2.4/object/comments) for getting comments. Alternatively, it looks like someone has already written a plugin (https://wordpress.org/plugins/fb-comments-importer/) that does this though they charge.
