Automatically add the Google +1 button

Adding this snippet to the functions.php of your wordpress theme will automatically add the Google +1 button to your wordpress posts. This is a great little snippet from ottopress.com

add_filter('the_content', 'google_plusone');
function google_plusone($content) {
	$content = $content.'<div class="plusone"><g:plusone size="tall" href="'.get_permalink().'"></g:plusone></div>';
	return $content;
add_action ('wp_enqueue_scripts','google_plusone_script');
function google_plusone_script() {
	wp_enqueue_script('google-plusone', 'https://apis.google.com/js/plusone.js', array(), null);

      1. Thanks Kevin. I will put in footer.php for now. I think that your option is great for wordpress, thumblr .. etc users. What do you think?
