Installation

  • Setting up your google buzz account to spit out a feed.

In order to setup the feed for your Google Buzz Account,
goto the following URL:

http://www.google.com/profiles/me/editprofile

At the very bottom of that page is a heading:

Profile URL

Enable that URL. Now your feed is setup!

  • Configuring the plugin!

Included in this archive is a file called: googleBuzzFeed.php
between line 20 and 26 where it says:

$feedURL = ‘http://buzz.googleapis.com/feeds/{user}/public/posted’;

change {user} with your google account name.

e.g. http://buzz.googleapis.com/feeds/ghostbone/public/posted

Between these lines you can also set the number of Buzz’s ($POSTS) to show,
as well as the width of your side bar ($MARGIN_WIDTH), for image re-sizing.

  • Adding the plugin to wordpress!

Upload the folder in this archive to /wp-content/plugins/

Now login to your admin panel. Then select plugins, and activate
Google Buzz Feed.

Once activiated, goto Appearance -> Widgets.

On this page, drag the box titled Google Buzz Widget to
the sidebar on the right.

Now it should appear on your site!

FAQ

The plugin isn’t themed to my wordpress skin!

In order to theme it you have to add styling yourself. An example can be found in the comments at:

The displayed time (x hours ago) is wrong!

Modify the $TIMEZONE constant to the appropriate timezone! A list of time zones can be found at:
http://php.net/manual/en/timezones.php
For example if I’m in Dubai and my recent buzz says it was posted 4 hours ago, I’d use
$TIMEZONE=’Europe/London’; as London is 4 hours behind. Therefore changing it to x minutes ago.
