We just started to use the Blog functionality within WebsiteBuilder.  Now that we've created a few posts we noticed there is a link to Facebook called a "comments plugin".  Does this need to be configured and if so how.  If not can it be removed?  Currently, when clicked it takes the user outside of the website to a Facebook developers page.

As long as the person who is viewing your site is logged in to Facebook, they will be able to use the Facebook Comments option. Nothing needs to be configured on your end.

Elyazbeth...thanks for your response.  I understand how the comments option works.  What doesn't make sense to me why there is a Facebook hyperlink that takes you to a developers page?  Is there any way to get rid of that?

No, there is not a way to get rid of that. It is just how Facebook displays that element.
