  • Resolved wpsitedesign


    I have a google+ business page where my photos are hosted. I am able to display them in a gallery using the url id code but I am struggling to grant private access to the page so that I can use the featured tag filtering. The account it redirects me to controls the page but has different albums so it doesn’t grant access to the page private albums.

    Any idea if this is possible ?

    I think all you need to do is sign out of Google prior to requesting private access on the blog.

    When the private access request is made to Google and you’re signed out, it will prompt you to sign in. At that point you can sign in with the correct Google account where your photos are stored and grant the blog access.

    I’ve tried singing in and going through the process but it only gives access to the account that controls/created the google+ page and not the page itself as it is not an account.

    Is there any way to use the featured tag filtering without private access ? (the albums are public)

    What I am trying to achieve is to have 20 images with the Google+ phototile style on my webpage and then link to the rest of the photos on google+.

    Thanks for the help.

    The private access requirement is a requirement by Google (I have no idea why), I have the same argument that if my albums are public, tag searching shouldn’t require private access. But, Google does as Google does.

    I’m not entirely certain I understand your situation, but the unexpected filtering results may also be due to a tag searching bug in google+. There’s an FAQ entry that describes the problem, but basically tag searches are not working properly on Google’s side, even though this plugin requests the tag search correctly.

    Read the FAQ and see if the tag searching problem sounds like the issue you’re having – it may be completely unrelated to the private photo access.

    Resolving, assuming my responses resolved the issue.

    I did also submit a request to Google to allow tag searching without private blog access, no idea where that request is in the development cycle, however.
