+1 for WordPress


This plugin adds a Google +1 button to the bottom of each post and/or page on your blog. The +1 button can be added either automatically or using a template tag depending on what you choose on the Options page.


There are two options on the options page: Link Type and Insertion Type.

Insertion Type – This option sets how you want to insert the link into your posts/pages. There are two choices: auto or template.

  • Auto – When insertion type is set to auto the +1 button will automatically be inserted right after the post.
  • Template – When insertion type is set to template the +1 button will appear wherever the template tag for the plugin is added to your theme.

Page Type – This option sets whether you want your +1 button to appear on Posts, Pages or both (Posts and Pages).

Template Tag

When Insertion Type is set to Template the following template tag must be added to your theme in the location you want the link to appear:

<?php if(function_exists(plusone_template)) : plusone_template(); endif; ?>


  1. Download the .zip archive (link below) and extract.
  2. Upload the ‘1-for-wordpress’ folder to your plugin directory. You should now have a ‘/wp-content/plugins/1-for-wordpress/’ directory with wp-plusone.php in it.
  3. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ page in WordPress.
  4. Go to ‘Settings->+1 For WordPress’ in your admin interface to select your options.
