These pictures are truly amazing to see.

Google+Blog for WordPress 1.3.4 [Bugfix Release]

Hot on the heels of +Mike Elgan's #blogsofaugust  campaign I have gone ahead and updated the Google+Blog for WordPress plugin.  I originally created this plugin as I saw how great G+ was as a blogging platform but noticed many users were still wanting to keep their own sites populated with their own content.  

Google+Blog for WordPress is a plugin that allows you to import your Google+ Public posts (and their comments) as blog posts into your WordPress setup. There is a free version and a paid version ($10), both of which can be found at http://gpb.minimali.se/google+blog/ 

Paid users, please update by going to http://gpb.minimali.se/google+blog/YourTransactionId/ to download. Where 'YourTransactionId' is the number emailed to you.

Update Details

- Fixed issue with shared youtube videos
- Better handling of some vimeo embeds
- Comment dates should now be more accurate
- Remove jQuery dependence

To update please deactivate and delete the existing plugin prior to installing this one.

Feedback

Keep your suggestions coming as they are what guides the development of this plugin. Also be sure to log any bugs you have found with me. Updates will start to slow down a little now as the plugin becomes more stable but be sure to check my posts for the latest news regarding the plugin.

Guides

There is an explanation of each of the settings for the plugin in a prior post that can be found here: https://plus.google.com/103697821787469756035/posts/UvHumFMNbai 

If you think you need a little more help with the plugin +Nancy Messieh  of TheNextWeb wrote up a great post detailing the steps to go through to get things up and running. Check it out here: http://thenextweb.com/apps/2011/10/11/crosspost-your-google-posts-to-your-wordpress-blog-with-this-plugin/

Problems

If you are experiencing problems with the plugin not working at all, there can be conflicts with other plugins and themes, especially in relation to comments. Message me privately with these issues including the settings you are using as well as any errors you may be receiving and I will do my best to help you get it all up and running.

Thanks for the continued support.

Another interesting tree found in the gardens on our walk to shoot the harbour bridge. I'm sure plenty of people have sat beneath it to enjoy the shade that it gives. Luckily the man that was there as we arrived moved so that I was able to capture this shot.

The weather was a bit touch and go on this afternoon at Bronte beach, but all these people at the beach didn't seem to care. Those clouds would soon bring some showers though.

A different perspective of the opera house.  It was being lit up by an outdoor opera event from just across the bay.
