I want to add a Google = button on the showphoto page next to the other social sharing buttons.
How do I do that ??:eek:

well you are free to add whatever buttons you wish on the showphoto template. You can look for the pinterest button to see how we add that button in. I have no idea what you mean by a google = button so really hard to give advise.

You will have to follow googles tutorial. Here is a blog that explains it in detail.
depending on your integration you need to add accordingly. Like for instance you would add to your showphoto template the code to display the button where ever you want it to display.
For instance in showphoto adding this line in bold may work.
You would add the script call to your header. For instance if your using vbulletin you would add the script call to the header include template I suppose.
I have no idea what google plus one is or what it is suppose to do but that is what that tutorial says to do to add it.

just so I am sure about this I have to place the above code in the showphoto.tmpl
Which code do I need to place in the header include template?

The script tag you place in the head portion of your page is noted in the instructions I linked. Take a look at the link I provided.

I do have one question about this where is this stuff shared to? I just do not get what this google plus really does? Is it an option like emailing to a user that we already have?

When a viewer finds a page of a website containing the Google+ button, if they like the page they can share the page by clicking the button. The page is shared to their Google home page (a bit like Facebook).

Okay thats what I was asking no wonder I have never seen a google homepage ;)

Well you can actually see somebody else's Google home page, they can be shared like FB pages and others can become part of your "Google circle" of friends.

Yeah Google must be trying to get into all that stuff now ;) My homepage is the photopost home page.
