Can support for the Google+ be added?

Along the lines of the existing Facebook support and could be used in the same way. Should be optional.

Yes, it's easy. Just change askbot/skins/default/templates/question.html:

            {% if settings.ENABLE_SOCIAL_SHARING %}
            <a class="twitter-share" alt="{% trans %}Share this question on twitter{% endtrans %}"></a>
            <a class="fb-share" alt="{% trans %}Share this question on facebook{% endtrans %}"></a>
            <script type="text/javascript" src=""></script>
            <g:plusone size="small" count="false"></g:plusone>
            {% endif %}

Note that this adds a javascript file from google. I've added this to my git fork.

Is this merged in 0.7.9? I haven't gotten it working

google +1 works for me, maybe you need to increment media revision - in "UI and skin settings"? It also may be disabled on your site - take a look in the sharing settings.

I noticed that google+ support has disappeared in this site after the latest update and I can't figure out how to enable this yet.
