320: Adding Google +1 buttons using vQmod in OpenCart 1.5

Recently, Google has made the decision to tie in search results to their own social network, Google +. Since results can be based on visitors “liking” or as google calls it “+1” a page, it’s important to add a method for your store’s visitors the opportunity to “+1” your page. The easiest way to do this is use an extension to OpenCart. Please keep in mind the extension we are using requires you have vQmod installed on OpenCart. If you are unfamiliar with vQmod, please read our tutorial on it.

  1. Download the extension – (VQMOD) ADDMORE
  2. Log into cPanel and click on “File Manager
  3. Navigate to your root folder for OpenCart and go to: /vqmod/xml
  4. Upload the recently downloaded extension after you have extracted it
  5. vqmod_add_more_1

Before we uploaded the Google +1 extension our site’s products looked like this:vqmod_add_more_2

Now, since we added the extension it looks like this:vqmod_add_more_3
