Display your Google+ Feed in your blog with images



Google+ Feed WidgetGoogle+ is the next big thing in Social Media. According to statistics its growth has been explosive. With loads of never before seen features and Facebook trying to copy them blankly ,its popularity has just increased by the day.

This was originally posted by me on Google+

I checked your post on G+ , it was about using the Zipl.us service and had nothing to do with Widget creation and embedding into Blogger

Prayag, this is a widget from widget box..... Any ways to remove the footer without going premium?

Just add the following code after the widget code

<div style="width: 200px;position: relative;z-index: 99999;height: 30px;top: -23px;background: url('IMAGE_URL');" ></div>

Put a IMAGE_URL same as the Sidebar background image
