FAQ

How do I geotag my Posts?

When creating or editing a Post, scroll down to see a section titled “Post Location.
Search for a location and confirm by selecting a location in the list of results.
When you click the Save or Publish button, your Post will be geotagged with that
location.

Why do some location searches not give results?

The only options shown in the location search results will be specific
addresses and small features. By default, this plugin does not allow to geotag
posts by neighborhood, city, country or any other imprecise location.

How is the location displayed in a Post?

The location you select for a Post is not displayed on the front-end of the
webpage unless if you have a Map, Local Search, or other Bloom plugin enabled. By default, the location is saved as metadata within the page, which means it can be accurately
read by other websites and tools such as search engines and social networks.
