Adding G+ to a SquareSpace Site


  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:

    But you should use the relative URL in case you change the domain name sometime in the future:


    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.
