GplusBadge

A simple plugin that adds a google+ badge for linking to your google+ profile and showing your number of followers.

I get the error "Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_STRING, expecting T_OLD_FUNCTION or T_FUNCTION or T_VAR or ‘}’ in plugins/gplus-badge/gplusbadgehelper.php"

This is a problem with your PHP setup. You are almost certainly running PHP4. The plugin requires PHP5. WordPress requires PHP5 after version 3.2 too. Talk to your host about using PHP5.

I get the error "Warning: file_get_contents() [function.file-get-contents]: Filename cannot be empty in /*****/*****/public_html/blog/wp-content/plugins/gplus-badge/gplusbadgehelper.php"

You probably have something other than your Google+ id in the Google+ id box. Make sure you just put in the numbers from the url of your Google+ profile and nothing else.

I get the error "Warning: file_get_contents(http://plus.google.com/*******… [function.file-get-contents]: failed to open stream: HTTP request failed! HTTP/1.0 403 Forbidden"

This is a HTTP 403 error from Google+, it means they have banned your server’s IP from making requests to their servers. This usually isn’t anything to do with the plugin (it makes very few calls to Google’s servers) and it is more likely that you are on shared hosting, and someone else who shares your IP has been scraping Google.

I get the error "file_get_contents(http://plus.google.com/… [function.file-get-contents]: failed to open stream: Unable to find the socket transport "ssl” – did you forget to enable it when you configured PHP?"

Because Google+ is HTTPS, you need to get your host to enable openssl and configure it for PHP.

I get the error "Warning: file_get_contents() [function.file-get-contents]: URL file-access is disabled in the server configuration in /var/www/web1281/html/wordpress/wp-content/plugins/gplus-badge/gplusbadgehelper.php". AND/OR I get the error "Warning: file_get_contents(http://plus.google.com/1082378… [function.file-get-contents]: failed to open stream: no suitable wrapper could be found in /var/www/web1281/html/wordpress/wp-content/plugins/gplus-badge/gplusbadgehelper.php"

The plugin requires either CURL or file_get_contents() to be enabled on your server.If your host gives you access to your php.ini then you can change the ‘allow_url_fopen’ setting to ’1′ which will fix your problem. Otherwise speak to your host and ask them to enable CURL or allow_url_fopen for you.

= I have enabled showing followers, but the follower images are not shown/

This can happen if you have not specified a width. The number of followers to show is calculated based on width. Without width, this can't be done and so the follower images are not displayed.
