This plugin hasn’t been tested with the latest 3 major releases of WordPress. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.

Geolocation Plus


The Geolocation Plus plugin allows WordPress users to geotag their posts using the Edit Post page or any geo-enabled WordPress mobile applications such as WordPress for iPhone, WordPress for Android, or WordPress for BlackBerry.

Visitors see a short description of the address either before, after, or at a custom location within the post. Hovering over the address reveals a map that displays the post’s exact location.

It serves a GeoRSS feed of all geotagged posts on your site, allowing geo-aware RSS readers to display the location of your post or otherwise aggregate your geotagged content.

This plugin is forked from Geolocation by Chris Boyd and contributors. If you don’t need a GeoRSS feed then you might be better just to use the original plugin.

Development work on this fork was commissioned by Talk About Local as part of the HypARlocal project to make local news content available on augmented reality platforms.

HypARlocal is funded by NESTA’s Destination Local and the Nominet Trust.
