This plugin hasn’t been tested with the latest 3 major releases of WordPress. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.

Google Shared Contents


Plugin allows you to publish your shared contents which you shared
with your ‘Google Reader’ account, by using your ‘Google ID’.

Just feel free to develope this plugin yourself.
For more information you can contact with me:



* You may want to use the plugin on more than one area on your site. So you may want to have different content count number for different areas on your site. You can use the count number you want instead of “defined” expression seen above. For example if you want to display last 5 shared contents you can use the function seen below:

<?php if (function_exists('load_google_sharings')): ?>
<?php load_google_sharings('5'); ?>
<?php endif; ?>

In this way plugin will skip the default count number you typed in your control panel and use the expression you give in function.


The most important thing: You can get trouble with PHP 4 versions. Plugin may not work. This site runs on a PHP 4 server and a reason that I couldn’t solve yet causes fail. I will give more information about that when I try it on different PHP 4 servers. Also If you try and tell me the result I will be glad.

Plugin uses SimpleXML libraries that is supported by PHP 5. Nothing went wrong with it yet.
