Google+ Comments Widget

Description

Google+ Comments –

“Google+ Comments Widget” is a fully customisable google+ comments plugin for wordpress.

On installing, it will replace the default wordpress commenting system with Google+ comments. You can configure the plugin to set the width or to show comments only if the viewer chooses to. It also makes Google+ Comments responsive-ready.

Advantages –

  • Configurable comment width.
  • Responsive-ready with dynamic width option. The normal Google+ Comment widget maintains a fixed width on loading even in smaller screens leading to overflow. The dynamic width option fixes that.
  • Option to retain and show older comments.
  • Choose whether to display all comments by default or with a “Show Comments” link.
  • It is FREE!!!

FAQ

Why do we have both “Width” and “Dynamic Width” options.

For non-responsive sites where width is fixed, you can set the width to the width of your comments container. For responsive sites, the width will vary depending on the screen. In this case use the “Dynamic Width” option which will calculate the width and add a plugin with that width. It will work fine if you use “Dynamic Width” for a non-responsive site, but with the fixed with, an extra calculation can be avoided.

When will the option to set the default number of comments to show be available?

Unfortunately, Google has not yet made this feature available in the commenting system. It will be made available in the plugin as soon as Google releases the feature.
