    Hey @DRE, it's me again. Sorry for bothering you.

    This resource also did not work for me.

    Perhaps I need to understand how this works. How does step 1 and 2 work? Is that how Google + link to the forum? What if I just find someone to code for me to add the "Thread by" under my name in threads without doing step 1 and 2, will it work?

    Does the "Thread by" need to be under the picture? What if I just add in in the content, maybe before or after?

    I just want to connect to G+ and try alternative options.

    Lastly, can you give examples of xenforo sites that have successfully done this?

    Is it possible to limit what forums this would apply to?

    If you want to exclude certain usergroups and subforums from using this addon then use Brogan's Conditional Statements resource.

    Click on the links of this resource and read what Google says about Google Authorship.

    How about adding "?rel=author" at the end of our G+ link below the avatar?

    It's been there this whole time. You just need to read the resource a lil more deeply.

    Hi @DRE ,
    Could you add a feature that anyone who connected with Google+ will be automatic enabled Google Authorship (without input profile link)?
    Thank you.

    @DRE , I guess you misunderstood, you need to have "?rel=author" at the end of your link as well.
    I used the Custom Fields by Waindigo method for a better implementation, here's the final result:

    And here's how it looks in forum_view:

    When you sign up through Xenforo's existing social network services such as Facebook, Twitter and Google neither services automatically apply your username or page link on your profile. I think the only addons that do that is Steam integration. I think something like that requires php work which would require an addon, this is just a template modification resource. I don't do any php work so you would have to create a thread in the request forum.

    Just did it.. Now, its time to wait to google process :)

    Since xenforo has the "g+ integration", maybe you can improve this by asking the user to associate his user with the g+ and the auto get the profile from it, no?

    Thanks for the resource :)
