With the dust is still settling around here from getting the site all setup on its home on the at WPEngine. Plus getting the initial custom theme "SimpleHero" a little closer to complete ( is a website or theme ever *really* complete ? ) , the theme this website and my personal blog at brandonHoltsclaw.com are running now that I plan to release as OpenSource after most of the ugly hard coded things are abstracted out.
So long story short(er) ... thats when I stumbled across something in my Google Plus stream last night that the G+ Commenting system had been deployed to Blogger.com blogs and that it was also being used on non-blogger sites as well! Well after taking a break from working on the theme and a little bit of digging ... *poof* Google+ Comments plugin for WordPress is born.
Now its still in early development so dont be surprised if its lacking a few features, I'll be working on those right away as well as feedback from any of you as well. So I'd imagine a few releases in quick succession as the G+ Commenting System gets rolled out to more people will undoubtedly happen.
For now you can see the plugin in action here on this site, and you can grab a copy for your self. Just unzip it in your WordPress plugins directory and activate it like normal. Be sure to let me know how things go too, I'm keen to get some feedback.
The plugin is now available in the WordPress Plugins Directory . As of this writing the current version is 1.2 and allows Facebook, Disqus, Native WordPress Comments and Trackbacks all to be optionally shown.
Also many of you have asked where you could donate so I've setup a WePay donations page here. A huge Thank You if you decide to use it!
