I've written my first WordPress plugin. It's called Facebook Comments for Genesis. From the plugin description:
The way that the official Facebook plugin integrates comments into WordPress sucks, especially on Genesis. The comments are rendered in the wrong place and the WordPress comments form is simply hidden with CSS - not removed.
The Facebook Comments for Genesis plugin provides an optimized integration of Facebook Comments into themes using the Genesis theme framework. It uses the built-in Genesis hooks to really remove the comment form.
It's currently in beta and I would like to get feedback and test it first before deciding if I should publish it to the WordPress plugin directory. If there are any developers who would look through my code I would be much obliged.
Here's a site that I launched recently that makes use of the plugin: http://thejoydepot.com
