    Hi,

    I’m looking to add code to the theme’s homepage for my blog, in particular, a Google+ validation code.

    Could anyone instruct me how to do this please, and if it’s possible, where I’ll need to navigate to, to action this.

    Many thanks,

    Jamie.

    Hey Jamie —

    What exactly do you need to add?

    Hi Chris,

    I want to add a Google+ validation code to link my Google+ blog page to my website.

    It’s: Google+

    and I want to add it to thenumber-eightytwo.com

    Many thanks,

    If it’s just a verification code — meaning it can be removed after the site has been verified, then you can just flip into Text view in a post to put the verification code into a post for the purpose of verifying the site, then delete the post once it’s been verified. You don’t need to worry about editing any theme code.

    Hi,

    That didn’t work I’m afraid. The instructions explicitly say it needs to be added to the Homepage. Here are the instructions:

    Link your website

    By adding a short line of code to http://www.thenumber-eightytwo.com, you can make your Google+ page eligible to show up on the right hand side of the Google search page for relevant queries and make your Google+ page more discoverable. Learn more
    Ask your site’s webmaster to add the following line of code to your site’s homepage:

    Google+

    You can also email these instructions to your webmaster
    Check that the line of code was added to your site’s homepage and that the modified homepage is live on your site. Then try testing again.

    Where the Google + hyperlink is above, on the original page it’s displayed as a long piece of code.

    I’ve done this before with Google+ and I can vouch for the fact that it works. You just need to make sure you are in the Text editor in WordPress and that your post appears on the front page.

    Hi,

    I’m not sure why but I still couldn’t get it to work. I got round it by using the ‘add code’ widget.

    Best,

    Jamie.

    Glad you got it working.
