Adding G+ to a SquareSpace Site

Simple.

  1. If you haven't added a Social Links Widget, now would be a good time.
  2. Download the G+ icons and choose the one you want.
  3. Under Website Management > Data & Media > File Storage > Upload Files, upload the icon.
  4. Get the icon's URL, something like:
    http://peterjs.com/storage/g-plus-icon-1x16.png

    But you should use the relative URL in case you change the domain name sometime in the future:
    storage/g-plus-icon-16x16.png

    But this doesn't work if you need the widget to be consistent across multiple pages with different URLs (like About Me and the homepage/root URL)...if anyone knows a better solution than absolute URLs, let me know :)
  5. Under Website Management > Members & Accounts > Member Accounts > (Select your account) > Social Profile, add the following:
  6. Congratulations - just remember to verify you got it right :)

     

Thanks +Sean McGabe of Bold Perspective for the free Google+ icons.

    G+ is a revelation in the social media platform, as it seems to be the only thing that could probably resist the FB overlaping. Orkut had been demolished ruthlessly and G+ is growing to be a greater competation. Thanks for the informative share.

    The process of educating is very important for the different sections of society. The background of students is brought under the same standard of life. The students are taught in the integrated system of learning.
