Google+ WordPress Plugin by +Daniel Treadwell
Locked and loaded on my blog http://pegfitzpatrick.com/. I’m looking forward to experimenting with sending longer format Google+ posts into my blog. Only posts using the #blog hashtag, will be sent to my blog giving me control of what is sent in.
“As for the settings within your WordPress blog itself, you can select the number of existing Google+ posts to import, pre-select tags and a category, and select the status of the posts, choosing between published, pending, future or private.” More info on The Next Web http://tnw.co/ZbGH6i
I am starting with posts going into a Google+ category in draft status. There are two versions, a free version and a $10 version. I went for the paid version since I am also a pluss.es fan and let’s face it, everything in life can’t be free. Check it out and let me know what you think OR if you already use it.
Google+Blog for WordPress is a plugin that allows you to import your Google+ Public posts (and their comments) as blog posts into your WordPress setup. There is a free version and a paid version ($10), both of which can be found at http://www.minimali.se/google+blog/ .
Paid users, please update by going to http://www.minimali.se/google+blog/YourTransactionId/ to download. Where ‘YourTransactionId’ is the number emailed to you.
- Avatars are now displayed against user comments
- Google API changes related to images are handled
- Problems with embedded links not displaying thumbnails fixed
- Youtube videos are now embedded, allowing better viewing on mobile devices.
- Reshared posts are again importing after API changes
To update please deactivate and delete the existing plugin prior to installing this one.
Keep your suggestions coming as they are what guides the development of this plugin. Also be sure to log any bugs you have found with me. Updates will start to slow down a little now as the plugin becomes more stable but be sure to check my posts for the latest news regarding the plugin.
There is an explanation of each of the settings for the plugin in a prior post that can be found here: https://plus.google.com/103697821787469756035/posts/UvHumFMNbai
If you think you need a little more help with the plugin +Nancy Messieh of TheNextWeb wrote up a great post detailing the steps to go through to get things up and running. Check it out here: http://thenextweb.com/apps/2011/10/11/crosspost-your-google-posts-to-your-wordpress-blog-with-this-plugin/
If you are experiencing problems with the plugin not working at all, there can be conflicts with other plugins and themes, especially in relation to comments. Message me privately with these issues including the settings you are using as well as any errors you may be receiving and I will do my best to help you get it all up and running.
Thanks for the continued support.
Your reshares are appreciated.
