Solved "How To Link to your Google+ Page"

Post by Guest on June 12th 2014, 7:12 pm

Note: After asking this question a couple of days ago.. I find myself diving deeper into the forums markup.. which can be very confusing and even overwhelming. My main topic was locked by one of the admins seeing how I thought I had it solved based on user suggestions.. and I'm not sure how I ended up finding what I did. So to all those wanting to know 

"How to link your Google+ page" This write is for you.

Although I'm unable to add images, I'll do my best attempting to explain how one can add their Google+ page to their forum. merely as a reference to your Google+ page indicating there is verification that in fact you have a website. which is nothing more than having a check/shield added to your Google+ plus page beside your posted URL address.

Once you either created a Google plus account.. you can then link your plus page to your forum page.. This located on your Google+ "About" page, Links. Clicking "edit" will grant you access to enter an offside link which will be added to your Google+ page right under your account name for all visitors to see. In the Google+ website slot, Add your forum's URL. IE: (http://mywebsite.forumotion.com) etc. After which.. A pop up will appear with a generated HTML code. 

Important: Leave this window open as you copy only the Google+ page URL or the (https://plus.google.com/numbers) and disregard the coded data before & after the URL. Once you have connected the two accounts, You can return and close this window.

Copy your URL and return to your forum page.. and here is where I had an issue.. I couldn't find where to place this, until now.. Another user informed me to just open a notice or announcement and place the code within the announcement.. which I did and can work.. But the official way is as follows.

Within your forums Admin panel, Locate the Modules tab, Click and scan down the pages left hand side for a list of options. Under the "Social Networks", You will see "Google+" Click and open, You then should see: Link Your Google+ Page and all relative information.. 

Extract your copied Google+ URL as mentioned above and paste into the slot just below all relative information.. Make sure the "Link your forum to your Google+ page" is check "Yes" then submit. This will add your Google+ generated code into the HTML markup and remain in an undisclosed area of your forum without attracting attention.

Once placed within your forums markup, a Google bot or representative will scan your forum page for the code, but only for verification purposes.

@SLGray  But this is what you originally said in my now archived post..


SLGrayI added the code to an announcement on my forum.  You can add the code any where HTML is allowed.
 So apparently you didn't know either..

I thought you were referring to the code that you are giving in the other topic.  If you are just adding the link, you do what I posted here.
