Reviews

Superb support

I had an issue and within a few hours Eyal responded with a solution. Very impressive.

Plugin was just what I needed

This is my third time editing my review (gets better every time). I see the care that Eyal takes and appreciate how busy he is. The more I get into the plugin, the more I realize how much work it must have been and still is to manage. For that, thank you! Now, my biggest problem is that the “Donate to the plugin” link only takes me to the website where there is no link for me to send some money Eyal’s way. After all the help he’s given me and the pain in the ass I was asking for it, I need to send something because if I don’t, I’m an even bigger ass.

Second last edit below:
After some unfortunate communication mishaps and scheduling conflicts, Eyal came through for me in a big way. He is a very busy body, and I can understand that it limits his responses, but when it came down to brass tax, he came through. The plugin is just what I needed to get to my next step. Thanks, Eyal.

Great plugin but have a question

is it possible to use the shortcode to display only user current location in a text format?

I’m planning to use it for a form to autofill user current location

Thanks

Great plugin

Great plugin.
Used it for free first, then with premium settings and global maps plugins, which are great too.
Recently tried also WP Job and Resume manager plugins, but found another solution in the meanwhile. I then was refunded.
Thank you.

2.0

This is a major update with many bug fixs, core modification and improvements, new features and more. Please make sure to backup your current version before updating to the new one.
After updating you will need to go over the settings page and re-save your settings as well as the search forms as many things have changed.

Please visit www.geomywp.com for more information before updating your plugin
Below are some of the major changes in this version:

  • Core modification – The code reduced drastically, It is much cleaner, performs better, many function are documented, the number of files and folders had been reduced and more organized.
  • Admin – styling improved, better search forms page, tooltips and more…
  • Search queries – The main search queries are now working directly with WordPress query (WP_query) and BuddyPress query ( BP_User_Query) which should be better for performance and will be much easier to modify the plugin to work with every theme. Now you can simply copy and paste the WordPress posts loop from the theme that you are using into the result.php page of the plugin in order to have the results page matching you theme.
  • Stand alone search form – the search form moved into its own template file, just like the results theme. Now you can have full control on the look and functionality of the search form and the results.
  • Improved widgets and shortcodes.
  • Warnings removed.
  • New, improved pagination – new buttons, new look and fix the issue where it shows infinite pagination buttons when having many results.
  • Per page value – using a drop down box you ( or the users of your site ) can now change the “per page” value live when viewing the results .
  • There is no more use for the “form_only” attribute when using gmw shortcode. In order to have the results showing in a different page you will have to select the results page in the shortcode setting.
  • localization – GEO my WP is now ready to be translated. There are no translated files ready yet but a default PO file is in geo-my-wp/languages. the plugin is also ready to be used with right to left languages. Please, if any of you get to translate GEO my WP it will be much appreciated if you’ll share the PO and mo files so others will be able to use it as well.
  • There is no more use for the shortcode [gmw_friends_results]. [gmw_results] will now serve as a results page for both posts and BuddyPress members.
  • Styling – I have modified and removed most of the CSS styling from the plugin. So if you had any custom styling you will probably lose it and will have to adapt it again.
  • Renamed Files and folders
  • Shortcodes name changed from “wppl” to “gmw”:
    • main shortcode – [gmw]
    • results – [gmw_results]
