I did as you said, I also sent you a mail and a buzz with no response. I will probably now remove your plugin. Thanks for the short time it worked.

Very nice plugin, I was looking for something like this. Two small remarks, though.
1° I’d like to have a checkbox in the option pannel to avoid loading your CSS, thus leaving the theme do the styling part. I made it by hacking your file and commenting the content of gber_head() function, but a cleaner way would be great.

2° It would be great if you could grab the source of the Buzz post and display it, and/or set it as class for the gber_post div. I’ve been digging in the feed XML and found it under entry->source->activity:service->title. I tried to hack your code once again, but the XML parser don’t like the “:” character.
If you know how to work around this, that would be awesome.

Thanks again for your plugin.

I don’t know… I just know that it can’t be done with this plugin.

Lazarevic Ivan on July 3, 2010 at 7:42 pm

Is it possible to fetch comments made on BUZZ to the respective WORDPRESS blog entry, like can be done with facebook plugin WPBOOK ?

Lazarevic Ivan on June 20, 2010 at 7:46 pm

I forgot to mention, I’ve deleted the plugin and re-downloaded it but it still seems to be broken. Can you please email me? Thanks..

Jason on June 20, 2010 at 11:13 am

Hi Lazarevic Ivan, I’ve tried two other plugins and I love this one.

But I have a question/suggestion: it doesn’t show the linkk added to a buzz. Do you plan include this feature in next versions?


Ender Muab'Dib on June 3, 2010 at 2:49 pm

I get this error when I install the plugin into my Sidebar….

Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in /home/content/e/c/a/ecarr/html/wp-content/plugins/google-buzz-er/google-buzz-er-content.php on line 149

Could you help me with this issue please?

Ed Carr on June 2, 2010 at 12:16 pm

Hi I got this error. It happens because some people use the username of the gmail instead the profile of the Google Buzz. For some people this username are diferent. How my friend Ezequiel username gmail = profile g. buzz = 109720051625076474087

In this case username not show error above and 109720051625076474087 work with plugin.

Hello Ivane,
It looks like an awesome plugin, but for some reason I can’t get it to work properly. I do the install just fine, but the only thing displayed are my comments – no link or images are displayed. Any ideas what might bew wrong?


Ranko on May 22, 2010 at 5:02 pm

I love this plugin. It’s the only buzz feed plugin I found that displays images. I am wondering though … I have multiple authors in my blog and I’d like to display buzz feeds from each of them in specific locations. Is there a way to do this?

Eli on May 20, 2010 at 12:08 pm

Oh and for your information: i had an error after adding my account info. But i don’t use my user name but the numbers version. Perhaps an idea to add this info.

Schweinhund on May 17, 2010 at 2:18 am

Is there a future plan to add multiple accounts with avatar..?

Schweinhund on May 17, 2010 at 2:14 am

Thanks Chad for below, worked for me too

“If you don’t have “Profile URL” enabled in Google Buzz, you can input the very long number that appears in your profile URL into the Gmail Username field in the Google Buzz ER settings. Works for me.”

And of course, thanks to the developer Ivan

Brandon Weinberg on May 9, 2010 at 9:46 pm

Thank you guys for suggestions, I’ll implement some of them in next release for sure.
