Plus Minus makes Google+ rock. It lets you select which Circles show up in your Google+ Stream, allows you to easily mark individual or all posts as read, offers a wide-screen view so you can see more content without scrolling, and loads more posts automatically as you scroll down.
*PLEASE CLICK THE REFRESH BUTTON IN ANY OPEN GOOGLE+ TABS AFTER INSTALLATION*

## INSTRUCTIONS ##
Click here to update to the latest version of Plus Minus: http://goo.gl/TP5hD
You will automatically see checkboxes next to the name of every Circle when you are in your Stream (i.e. when the URL in address bar says https://plus.google.com). Uncheck all the circles that you do not wish to see in your main Stream. You can still check out the posts in each circle manually. If you do not see the checkboxes, that means you are not viewing your stream. Go to https://plus.google.com and if you still don't see the checkboxes, hit refresh.
Hide your posts:
To hide your own posts when you filter by circles, click on the blue Plus Minus icon in your address bar, check the "Hide my posts when filtering by circles" checkbox, and refresh. This will hide your posts if you uncheck one or more circles.
If you add a user to multiple circles and uncheck one of those circles, the user's posts will still show up in your stream. To ALWAYS hide a user's posts from your stream, create a new circle called: AlwaysHide and add them to this circle and uncheck the AlwaysHide circle in your stream. Now this user's posts will not be shown until you manually check the AlwaysHide circle.
Hide "new people are sharing":
If you do not like to see the "new people are sharing" message, click on the blue Plus Minus icon in your address bar, check the "Hide 'new people are sharing' message" checkbox, and refresh.
New posts in your stream show up normally and after you read a post, click the triangle next to the person's picture to shrink the entire post into just two lines.
Click on the 'Expand' and 'Shrink' links in the top-right section of your stream to expand or collapse all the posts.
For Wide-screen view, click the 'Wide' link in the top-right section of your stream. You can switch to normal-view by clicking on the 'Normal' link.
Please note: If you use G+me or the side-by-side layout in Google+ Ultimate extension, read the section below on Extension Compatibility.
## EXTENSION COMPATIBILITY ##
Plus Minus has been tested thoroughly with G+ Ultimate, G+me, GTools+, Golden View, and SGPlus. Since many of the extensions offer features similar to each other, if you enable all these extensions at the same time, weird things will happen. You will have to manually disable any conflicting options in the extensions.
To make Plus Minus work with G+me or G+ Ultimate Side-by-Side layout view, click on the blue Plus Minus icon in your address bar and select 'Disable stream layout' and refresh.
To make Plus Minus work with Golden View, click on the blue Plus Minus icon in your address bar and select 'Disable filtering by circles' and refresh.
Feel free to contact me if Plus Minus causes problems with any extensions.
