FAQ

Where can I find the option to choose countries?

An option to choose countries is rendered above Publish button of each post in admin section.

Which post types are excluded by default?

By default we decided to exclude the following post types: attachment, revision, nav_menu_item, product_variation, shop_order, shop_order_refund, shop_coupon, shop_webhook

How can I edit the excluded post types list?

You can edit the excluded post types list by applying a gtp_exclude_post_types filter. For example for some reason you want to remove shop_coupon from excluded list you should include the following in your theme’s functions.php file:

<?php
add_filter('gtp_exclude_post_types', 'alter_excluded_posts_types');
function alter_excluded_posts_types( $post_type_list ) {
    $new_post_type_list = array_diff( $post_type_list, array( 'shop_coupon' ) );
    return $new_post_type_list;
}
?>

Reviews

Great plugin

the geo ip doesn’t work very well on firefox but it’s a great plugin nonetheless.

Exclude countries?

The plugin works as expected; it delivers posts to selected countries.

I was just wondering if it’s possible to exclude countries instead of adding all other countries. For example, if I want everyone to see the post except the U.S.
Is this possible?
