BuddyPress Google Plus

Description

Let your members and groups show their google plus profile button allowing other users to follow them. Using the google’s profile widget, the plugin fetches your members and/or groups profile ID and displays their profile button in the member’s/group’s header.

If your BuddyPress community is active on Google Plus, this plugin is a great tool for boosting communication both on and off your website.

It’s really easy to setup, even if you have an existing community:

Members: Once you ( the site admin ) have set up the members component, all your members have to do is enter in their Google Profile ID upon registration and existing members via editing their profile settings.

Groups: Once you ( the site admin ) have set up the groups component, all your group admins have to do is enter in their associated Google Profile ID when they create a group and existing groups via editing their group’s details.

FAQ

What is the ‘Group Field Title’ for?

The group field title is the title that will be displayed right above the text box where the group will enter in their Google Profile ID.

Will the ‘Mirror Profile Field Title’ also be displayed above the text box where the member will enter in their Google Profile ID?

No, the text box will use the title you gave your Xprofile field as described in step 6 of the plugin installation instructions. The ‘Mirror Profile Field Title’ is used to fetch the members meta ( attached data ) though if the two differ, no data will be returned thus no button will display.

Where can I get support or request a feature?

I will only respond to the [Buddypress Twitter Forum](https://buddypress.org/community/groups/buddypress-google-plus/forum/ “Buddypress Twitter Support”) or on my Blog ( I am working on my blog so its abit of a mess, best you use the Forum )
