Google Plus just released Google+ Comments for Blogger now its time to integrate that into our WordPress Blog. Since we cant wait till goole will publish the official version we take look under the hood how the new comment widget could be integrated for our WP Blog
First stop i would suggest to take a look at the new Google Plus Comment Plugin from Alex Mos. Since it broke my comment Theme a bit in to parts i desided to place it where it belongs to into one Comment tab. If you have no other comment system like Facebook Twitter respond integration probably it will work smoth without any further mode needed.
The nice part is now you can post right from your blog into Google+ to your selected circles and engage discussions around your blog. One great extension to the Google+ Import plugin from Daniel Treadwell. With a little modification even youtube videos get now embed by the custom Blog video player and shared Google+ Albums Galleries popup in the Lightbox .
Now you are one step closer to make your blog as your social media HUB where you can operate extend your media dahsboard for all your Networks and platfroms as you like. What else is nicer than to be at home where you have control how things work .
The Iframe workaround
The code below simulate the blogger Google plus widget that works with any Webpage or WordPress blog, just changed the dynamic url with <?php the_permalink() ?> and add the styling you need.
<iframe frameborder="0" hspace="0" marginheight="0" marginwidth="0" scrolling="no" style="position: static; top: 0px;
border-style: none; left: 0px;
height: 500px; " tabindex="0" vspace="0" width="100%"
href=<?php the_permalink() ?>;

title="Comment on this">
The simplest way if you dont care about one more plugin there is a WordPress plugins for Google comments from WordPress Goole Comment Download
After Changing my theme i should definitely push that into a wp-plugin to make it simpler to use and update (2014 Jan ) .
