The plugin distributes content from a WordPress site to specific locations using NFC-tags, QR-codes or geofences.
pingeb.org is a plugin for WordPress that connects your content to specific locations in the real world. You can distribute stickers/posters with NFC tags and/or QR codes in your town or building and offer location based content. It also supports geofences.
The plugin manages URLs and refreshes content for NFC-tags, QR-codes on stickers and posters or geofences, making possible a wide variety of time-dependent and location-based applications in public places. Here are just some of the things which can be done:
In other words, you can do a lot with this WordPress-plugin and simple NFC-tags, QR-codes or geofences. Without having to change the stickers or posters you can provide fresh content either at all or at selected locations.
For the end user it’s really simple to use: 1. Switch on your NFC-enabled smartphone and hold it against a sticker or photograph the QR-code. 2. A mobile website featuring the content will then be opened. 3. The song or e-book on offer is then just one tap away.
The plugin works in conjunction with the “Leaflet MapsMarker” plugin, which is also available for free. Both extend the functionality of WordPress and are very easy to use. The workflow sequence is as follows: 1. Add locations in MapsMarker 2. Assign URLs to the locations 3. Assign content to each location either individually or in a batch
You can tweet anytime a user downloads an item from your stickers or the geofence-location. Setup is easy, you only have to register as a [Twitter devloper] (https://dev.twitter.com/).
A handy tool lets you check for possibly removed or dead stickers or posters.
