Provides support for various Google products in Elgg

Last updated


Google has several excellent products that can be leveraged to improve your site in various ways.  I thought it would be useful to compile these into one plugin, rather than splitting features across multiple plugins. Currently, this plugin provides support for the following:

  • Verifying your site for Google Webmaster Tools
  • Tracking pageviews with Google Analytics
    • Support for tracking multiple subdomains *New in 1.4!!
  • Embed +1 buttons and plus-badges wherever you want with provided views.
  • Registers google maps js api (google.maps)
  • Registers google jsapi client (gapi.client)
  • Registers google js loader (google.load)

and I'm definitely open to suggestions for other Google products/features that I can add.  You can suggest your own idea or vote for one of the following:

  • Views for embedding google maps.
  • Views for embedding google visualizations.
  • Allow admins to choose to serve jquery(-ui) from Google's CDN
  • Make the Closure Library available via elgg_load_js
  • Google Calendar embedding

See the bundled README for most accurate and up-to-date details.
