What should be a simple thing to do seems to be fraught with challenges, however after a bit of searching around, I came across what must be the best and simplest plugin out there, so don’t waste your time looking any further.

Simple Facebook Connect http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/simple-facebook-connect/ or http://ottopress.com/wordpress-plugins/simple-facebook-connect/

Is by far and away the easiest, most comprehensive and well documented plugin for Facebook,

Having recently sorted out how to get Facebook plugins to work with a static html site, I knew that getting it to work with WordPress wouldn’t be straightforward, however Otto’s plugin is simply the best one out there, so what more can I say, than check it out for yourself, go to Otto’s blog here: http://ottopress.com/wordpress-plugins/simple-facebook-connect/ or get the plugin direct from the WordPress site: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/simple-facebook-connect/ install it as per the instructions, and you are done!

p.s. don’t forget to send Otto a beer!
