Wednesday, August 1, 2018 New Google Plus Communities IntegrationFor the first time you can actually embed a Google + environment, stream with posting capability into a website. They have made it super easy to do in the New Google Sites using the Embed URL tool. Before, it seemed that Google was intent on having most Google + content locked down in the platform with no export options. The security around Communities in particular seemed to be an obstacle.
Anyways, now things are different. Sites and Google Plus have a new relationship and interaction within intranets is much better because of it. Check out the post from Google and their Support Documentation:
Embed Google+ streams in the new Google Sites for more engagementJuly 30, 2018Were making it easier to embed Google+ streams in the new Google Sites.This feature is a top request from users who want to create more interactive and engaging sites. The launch will help you:
Increase the social aspect of sites.Users can see all the posts, photos, comments, and other content that theyd see with the full G+ experience.Enable free-flowing communication.Users can add comments, +1s, and more to the G+ content directly from the site.Keep content fresh.Users can avoid duplicate content management by having G+ updates appear automatically in sites.
How embedded G+ streams work
You can embed many types of G+ post streams in your Google Sites pages. Specifically, you can embed a top-level community page, a community category page, a collection page, a search results page, or a G+ profile. Formatting of the G+ embed will automatically adjust to the width you set. Once its embedded, users can interact with posts just as they can on the full G+ experience.
Permissions to see and interact with the stream are determined by whether users can see the content in G+. So if you embed from a private G+ community, only members of that community will be able to see the content on the site.
See our Help Center for more details onhow to embed G+ streams in Google Sites.
Add a Google+ streamYou can add a Google+ community, collection, or profile stream to your site.On your computer, openGoogle+.Go to the Google+ page of the stream you want to add to your site.Copy the URL of the Google+ page.Open a site innew Google Sites.At the right, clickEmbed.Paste the URL of the stream.ClickInsert.At the top right, clickPublish.Note:You can add a top-level community stream or specific community category streams to your site Wednesday, April 11, 2018 NEW Convert your site to the new Google SitesThis statement, followed by "Try it now" is appearing for some Google Sites users.
The Classic Google Sites to New Google Sites conversion tool is far from perfect. If you need help converting your site and having it appear as a beautiful, on brand, cohesive intranet solution, contact us.
Also, just a sidebar here, there is the new ability to add URLs to the Google Sites navigation. So your navigation can point, not only to internal pages within the site, but to other websites, or other Google Sites with different permissions. This is a nice solution for page-level permissions as it is currently lacking from New Sites.
