    Hi arthurstjames and first off, welcome to WPMU DEV!

    The comments form defaults to using the comments hook used by Twenty Eleven theme, which serves as a good standard to abide by. However, themes will sometimes utilize their own hooks, which the theme you're using likely does if the form doesn't display by default.

    Basically, you'll need to find out the hook your theme uses for the comment form and specify that in the "Use a custom hook" settings field in Ultimate Facebook's comments tab. You may be able to simply ask the theme developer what they use for their comment hook.

    Alternatively, you can simply add something like the following to your theme's code where you want the form displayed, then enter comment_form in the "Use a custom hook" settings field:
    <?php do_action("comment_form");?>

    Usually that would be in the theme's single.php file somewhere.
