How to Add Google+ Commenting Widget on Third Party CMS

Google  Commenting Widget for Third Party CMS

Google plus commenting system is quite similar to Facebook's comment system, and was created by Google in 2013 for Google plus users blogging with Blogspot and Blogger blog. Luckily, this awesome embeddable commenting widget can be added to any external or third party websites or blogs.

Google+ commenting system/widget is easy to add to Blogspot or Blogger by simply enabling it within the Blogspot or Blogger dashboard. However, it looks very nice and also works quite well for third party CMS like Wordpress etc.


Since Google plus commenting widget was made to officially use by bloggers blogging on Blogspot or Blogger blog, there was no provision of the widget/code, and you only have to enable Google plus comment for Blogger right inside your Blogspot or Blogger dashboard. 

It’s a bid difficult laying hand on the Google plus commenting widget but luckily, we’ve cracked the code which I’ll be giving to you in this post so you can now add to any third party CMS out there. All you have to do is to embed the HTML snippet that will be provided to you into your blog template, theme or html source code, and the Google comment box will simply appear.
The script (Google+ commenting widget) is very important, and nothing should be added or omitted within the code simply because, any alteration in the widget code will result to a blank box instead of the comments box. 
Perhaps, there is a limitation with this cracked or customized Google plus comment box on other CMS order than Blogger - for some reason there is a minimum height of around 600px so you may be left with a bit of blank space underneath your comment box. 
As far as I can tell, there's no way to get around it but it isn't that big of a problem unless you're putting comment boxes in the middle of pages. The issue goes away when the comment box grows because of more comments inside.

Google+ Commenting Widget on Third Party CMS

Bellow is the Google+ commenting widget, and you need to copy it and paste it into your blog template, theme, html source code, or any where you want it to appear on your third party CMS website order than Blogger.

<script src=""></script>
<div id="comments"></div>
gapi.comments.render('comments', {
href: window.location,
width: '624',
first_party_property: 'BLOGGER',

Be reminded that the ‘width’ component in the call to gapi.comments.render is also configurable. That is to say that you can use it to set the default width of the comment box size. It is responsive, and can fit in a smaller box size if you want it so.

Finally, since importance of blog commenting is a way to let blog visitors air out their own view of the subject matter discussed, and a way to measure blog engagement and conversion, Google+ commenting system is therefore, an inevitable blogging tool for successful blogging, and can be achieved integrating it (Google plus commenting widget) into Blogger or any third party content management system (CMS). 
I hope this has been of help to you, should you want to use Google plus commenting system on other CMS order than Blogspot or Blogger? Kindly help me share this post social media, and remember to use the comment box bellow.
