Blog Author (Google+ Profile links)

Add-on Modules / Blog / Settings


The Blog Author Manager links your Google+ profile (https://plus.google.com) to the topics you create.  When the link is set, your Google+ profile picture and account name are displayed in Google search results.


Note: In order for the link between blog topics and your Google+ profile to work correctly, please ensure:
- You have a Google+ profile photo with a recognisable headshot
- Your blog topic author name matches the name on your Google+ profile


To link your Google+ profile to your blog topics, open the Contegro Start menu and select Add-On Modules > Blog and Settings.

Contegro Start > Add-on Modules > Blog > Settings

By default, the Settings window opens the Author tab and any existing authors are listed in the left hand panel.
