Rob: Note this is a copy of old installed extensions (these below are not installed)

Google +1

6-Jul-2011 Allows you to include Google +1 button in 4 different versions very simply.

With the tag

<google1></google1> (same as default Small version)
  • Version 1:
    <google1 style="1"></google1> (Small version)
  • Version 2:
    <google1 style="2"></google1> (Medium version)
  • Version 3:
    <google1 style="3"></google1> (Standard version)
  • Version 4:
    <google1 style="4"></google1> (Tall version)

<google1 style="1"></google1> <google1 style="2"></google1> <google1 style="3"></google1> <google1 style="4"></google1>


Notice the Google1.php only allows one +1 per page. So I created a modified version called Google1_mod.php (which is currently running).
The spec says you can put more than one +1 on a page if you use the href="" attribute to specify the associated URL (you can not use an invalid URL or add a bookmark)
In this modified version you can use style=1,2,3,4 same as above or "small", "medium", "standard", or "tall".
Note: Using Google's embedded code pings the Google server so don't be surprised if your page runs a little slower.

The original code always included script. In the modified code if you use href="" then no script is respecified.
If all your google1 code contains href="" then somewhere in the page add the following to invisibly add the google script include

  • <google1 style="script"></google1>


  • <google1 style="small" href="http://website.com/page1"></google1>
  • <google1 style="medium" href="http://website.com/page2"></google1>
  • <google1 style="standard" href="http://website.com/page3"></google1>
  • <google1 style="tall" href="http://website.com/page4"></google1>

These do not function 100% because the URLs are fictitious. Google wants real URLs. So normally you would use the link to the .PDF etc next to the +1.
<google1 style="small" href="http://opensourcehelminththerapy.org/mediawiki2/title=Help:Editing001"></google1> <google1 style="medium" href="http://opensourcehelminththerapy.org/mediawiki2/title=Help:Editing002"></google1> <google1 style="standard" href="http://opensourcehelminththerapy.org/mediawiki2/title=Help:Editing003"></google1> <google1 style="tall" href="http://opensourcehelminththerapy.org/mediawiki2/title=Help:Editing004"></google1>

  • <google1 href="http://website.com/page1"></google1>
  • <google1 style="1" href="http://website.com/page1"></google1>

Robert: This is deprecated so we now use CSS to do this.

Put __NOTITLE__ on any pages where you want to hide the title.
