[resolved] Not posting images, truncating post text (2 posts)

    Using 0.8.4, with WP 3.4.1 - I managed to overcome the "too many redirects" error as mentioned in the recent posts on this forum. Now, the plugin will post to G+, but in a "collapsed" format, and without the image that goes with my post. Furthermore, the post was truncated and an elipsis "..." followed by a link to the full post on my blog was added.

    There aren't many settings for this plugin. In the debug.txt file, I can see the exact text of the post the way it looks on G+ - no image, truncated text, elipsis, link back to my site.

    Is this expected behavior? I hope not :-)

    Thanks in advance for any help!

    Unfortunately, yes, this is expected behavior, at least in the current version.

    Google does not provide an API for posting to Google+, so this plugin emulates the mobile client.

    That mobile client does not provide any way to attach images,

    One possible approach will be to emulate the normal browser client, but with all the ajax calls going back and forth between the browser and Google+, that will be very difficult to do.

    Other approaches welcome, but my guess is this will have to wait for Google to actually publish a writeable API
