GPlus Widget Block

The GPlus Widget Block creates a Google Plus page 'follow' badge that can be used in any content block area.

Under the Block's Content Tab, there's only one setting

  • Google+ Profile Url - this should be an external link to the google plus page the widget should feature
    e.g. https://plus.google.com/+wexphotographic for our account, https://plus.google.com/+CanonUK for Canon UK's account.

Under the Block's Settings Tab, there have been a couple of additions to the default block settings options

  • Layout - Portrait or Landscape
  • Theme - Light or Dark
  • Width - 180-450 for Portrait, 273-450 for landscape.
  • [ ] Show Cover Photo - Displays the cover photo in the badge if set to true and the photo exists.
  • [ ] Show Tag Line - Displays the page's tag line if set to true.

These settings allow you to modify the badge display inline with Google's Google+ badge display options.

By default the Google+ badge isn't responsive, and the 180 width is too wide for our site sidebar in small desktop view.
