Like other major social networks, Google Plus has a button that needs to go on each web page where you want the network to be accessed.  The Contao extension allows for operation of the button, but the actual implementation of the button occurs when the button is added to the web page.  The following article explains how to add the buttons to a page within the Contao front end.  If you have not already loaded the Contao extension for Google Plus, please go to Setting Up Google Plus for Contao.
