ProPhoto provides several widgets you can use to place a customized badge or button on your site, linking to your Google+ content. You can add widgets to any column in “ProPhoto > Customizer > Layout.”  Below you see the option area for the Google+ Widget followed by an explanation of each area.

1. Widget Type

google_widget_types

There are 2 main categories of Google+ widget, a badge or a button.  Google+ Profiles, Pages, and Communities each have their own badge, while a scaled down “follow” button can be used for any Google+ entity.

2. Entity ID

Google+ profiles, pages and communities are all different types of Google+ entities.  Each has a unique ID (like “105596053581053718505”), or if you have registered for one, a vanity name (like “+GooglePlusDevelopers”).  After selecting the type of widget you would like to display, you need to enter the ID or name of Google+ account.

To find the ID of a Page or Community, just go to that Page or Community in a web browser and copy the ID number or +XXX name out of the address.  To get your profile ID, go to your Google+ profile page and select “Profile” from the main dropdown menu.

Then copy the numeric ID or “+XXX” custom profile name out of the address bar (only the ID, not the entire url) and paste it into the ID field of the widget.  (If you are managing multiple Google accounts, your address may have “/u/some-number” in the address before the ID).

This option, only available for the badge widgets, allows you to set the overall width of the widget.  This is important when placing the widget in a row that has multiple columns. The minimum display width of the column column containing the widget will be this value.
