    1. Enter ‘Block description’ - Example: Google+ Javascript Code
    2. Select the ‘Source’ button in the editor for the ‘Block Body’ and make sure the ‘Text Format’ is set to ‘Full HTML’, then paste the Javascript code into the body area
    3. Under the ‘Region Settings’ for the theme you’re currently using, select ‘header’ (or one of the regions located towards the top of your page).
    4. Confirm ‘All pages except those listed’ is chosen under ‘Show block on specific pages’ - your javascript code needs to be on every page you wish to display the widget.
    5. Save block

    You have now placed the javascript code on your site. As long as you did not include a title on the block and only pasted the javascript code into the body, the block will remain hidden from view on your site. as it should.

    Navigate to: Structure > Blocks > Add Blocks

    2. Select the ‘Source’ button in the editor for the ‘Block Body’ and make sure the ‘Text Format’ is set to ‘Full HTML’, then paste the HTML code into the body area
    3. Under the ‘Region Settings’ for the theme you’re currently using, select the region you would like to place the block in - this is where your Google+ widget will appear to visitors
    4. Confirm ‘All pages except those listed’ is chosen under ‘Show block on specific pages’ - and that the correct list of pages is entered.
