Trial use of WPGplus

One of the frustrating things about Google+ is the lack of an API for developers to be able to write 3rd party plugins for either posting to or reading from Google+

It’s been a while now since I last checked on to see if there’s been any progress with a plugin for posting from WordPress to Google+ and to my surprise I stumbled across WPGplus

I’m not sure if it’s going to be suitable just yet, but at this point it looks like the only solution. So this post will be my first at using it (WPGplus) so let’s see how it fares!Β  πŸ˜‰

    Well so far this post hasn’t appeared in my Google+ feed 😐

    I’m giving wpgplus a go myself. It appears the developer is still working on it as it was updated just 10 days ago, so maybe at some point the magic will start to happen. This would be so much easier if Google would just open the API on up…

      Fail. When it tries to run it throws all kinds of errors about curl… Oh well πŸ™

        Yes it seems to be a little bit of hit’n’miss… At one point the plugin was simulating being a cell phone to get a smaller download but I’ve not really bothered with it! One day Google will open up the API for G+ and things like this will be a thing of the past… πŸ™‚

          I think that’s our best bet, just wait for the real deal. I expect Google may be hesitating due to people exploiting the API for spam. Speaking of spam, whats the captcha system you’re using here on your blog? Is that the akismet plugin that comes with wp?

          • Scott Evans says:

            No the plugin used is WP-reCAPTCHA. Akismet also scans what reCAPTCHA passes so it’s a double checking of comments. πŸ™‚

            Thanks for the answer. I ended up going with SweetCaptcha. A VPN provider I used once had a cool drag and drop system and SweetCaptcha brings that to wp. I hate those squiggly words, but not as much as I hate spam! Hopefully this solves both problems, at least for my visitors. Thanks for the answer, and nice looking theme here on your wp.

            I use both akismet and re-capcha
