WordPress Widget for Google+ posts

If you want a wordpress plugin that feeds your PUBLIC posts to your blog in a widget – test mine for me and let me know how that works for you

go into ‘Add plugin’ and search for ‘google plus feed widget’ and it should be at the top (made by Liz Quilty). Direct link is http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/google-plus-feed-widget/

Unzip into your plugins dir. Enable the plugin in wordpress, then go to your widgets menu. Drag it where ever you want it, and make sure you add your Google ID into its config (otherwise it defaults to mine).

Let me know any bugs, addons or similar required .

Syndicating your Google Plus Feed into your WordPress Blog


Somebody mentioned that it was hard/impossible to do this, and i know that a few people will want to. So i figured i would hunt about and see if it was possible, and it is! It’s not even too difficult!

First of all, go to http://plusfeed.appspot.com/ – it gives you an rss feed of all your public posts (this will only work for public posts sorry). My URL for my rss feed is http://plusfeed.appspot.com/114228869493885222559 , yours will look similar, just grab the id number from your profile page URL and add it after the domain.

Now go to your WordPress , login, to go Plugins > Add New . Search for and find the plugin called FeedWordPress and install/activate it.
Now it should show you your feed in that syndication tab, you can click the ‘update now’ button to load the last few posts.

Now you will notice a new menu bottom left called ‘Syndication’, click on that, then add in the URL above from plusfeed.appspot.com into the box named “New source”. It will confirm the look/feel, and add it.
Now you can click the ‘update’






Now click on the Feeds and Updates menu below it, look for the drop down box and choose ‘Look for updates after page loads’. You can do updates before the page loads, but this means if a person comes to your blog they are sitting waiting for the page to load whilst it does background grabbing of data.
From here you are away working, feel free to fiddle with other settings.


I found i prefer the link to go to the blog post rather than link to the google+ link, so i go to Posts and Links menu, and scroll down to Links, then choose ‘The local copy on this website’

Google Plus – Shorter URLs of your own

Google+ is here, and its great! the only problem is passing out the link to your profile… its huge!
Mine looks like this https://plus.google.com/u/0/114228869493885222559/

However, with some small html i have now made it this http://velofille.com/g+

If you have your own domain, this is fairly easy to do. Open a notepad or html editor, paste in something like this

        <meta HTTP-EQUIV="REFRESH" content="0; url=https://plus.google.com/u/0/114228869493885222559/">


Change the url= part to match the URL you have on google+ . Once done, upload that page then go to http://yourdomain.com/pagename.html . Most servers have modules which allow you to drop the .html so you can go to http://yourdomain.com/pagename and it will assume the .html and just work (pays to test this, each server is different).

For another way, you can use PHP also. I entered into my text editor

header("Location: https://plus.google.com/u/0/114228869493885222559/");


I named this g+.php and uploaded to my webserver, this allows me to just link to http://velofille.com/g+ (it checks for the suffix and assumes the .php).

In case none of these work, try using any other URL shortening service, some let you choose the name you give your link. http://is.gd/velofille works for mine also. To be noted, there is a google+ short linker which has been setup here http://gplus.to
