Video: How To Install Google Friend Connect On WordPress

by on December 7, 2008 · 3 comments

As a companion to the tutorial on How To Install Google Friend Connect To Your WordPress Blog, I’ve created a short video that walks through the steps of installing Friend Connect on a WordPress Blog.

This blog uses the very cool Thesis WordPress Theme, but these steps will work with any Widget enabled theme.

This works for self-hosted WordPress blogs only so far. If your blog is hosted at you won’t be able to install Friend Connect until they come out with a specific widget for it.

Let me know if this is helpful in the comments below, or join using the Friend Connect member gadget on the right hand side of the blog!

I put Google Friend Connect on Sharpie’s blog the day it came out, but now I’m trying to figure out the community functions and opportunity. It feels like there should be a GFC homepage where you can follow your friend’s activities on GFC enabled web sites – oh wait, that’s Orkut! Hmm, so basically the viral features of GFC would work especially well in places where Orkut is popular (e.g. Brazil).

I wish Facebook Connect was OPEN and as easy to use as GFC – but it’s not, so I doubt we’ll implement it even though it has a much stronger following in our markets.

I’ve used this tutorial and can’t get it to work. When I log into Friend Connect it never gives me the opportunity to choose whether I’m using blogger or another website and I’ve never seen any files to download.
