I have created both a Google+ profile and page.

I'm having some issues with the creation of a Google+ Badge. I want to use this badge on my website, where I have installed diffderent Google+ Widgets.

The funny thing is that all of them show other profiles with nice badges that contain the Google+ button, photos and the count of followers.

I don't have the same luck with my IDs: I can't get them to display any images.

I've tried the Profile Config Tool and I can get it to work with other IDs (e.g., idolbin.com: 117634089072667507999 or joomshaper: 106333042920846200705), but not with my own (104428351748591530426).

What do you think goes wrong here?

  • hi thx for editing - if you have any idea - iwolud be glad. greetings martin

There are two different badges, one for personal profiles (https://developers.google.com/+/plugins/badge/personal-config) and one for Pages (https://developers.google.com/+/plugins/badge/config). Make sure you use the correct one depending on which ID you're using and what you want to link it for.

  • many thanks for the hint. I will try to make sure to use the right one...

  • 104428351748591530426 is your personal profile. You should use developers.google.com/+/plugins/badge/personal-config

  • hello dear Prisoner - i have tried it. With the above mentioned id it looks very funny - the standard badge looks interesting - without images and photos but with the block for the different circles... this is pretty intersting - i have no glue why it is so... But at the weekend i will have a closer look at all the things. I look at the options and i try to create a new (experimental) profile. I come back and report all my findings - greetings
