Text only Google+ share link

I don’t really care for the standard social media share links. It’s not that they’re ugly per-se, it’s that they rarely fit a design well. That they’re ubiquitous and nobody even notices the design faux pas doesn’t change nothin’ for me. So it’s text-links only!

I thought as long as I’ve already got a Facebook text-only link tutorial, and a Stumbleupon text-only link, might as well do one for Google Plus:

<a href="https://plus.google.com/share?url=<?php the_permalink(); ?>" onclick="window.open('https://plus.google.com/share?url=<?php the_permalink(); ?>','gplusshare','width=600,height=400,left='+(screen.availWidth/2-225)+',top='+(screen.availHeight/2-150)+'');return false;">Google+</a> 

That url (<?php the_permalink(); ?>) is a WordPress bonus. Change it up to what ever your CMS of choice uses for page links, or add it manually.


Genius. Fantastic. Will be trying this out. Got one for Twitter?
