Perfect

Plugin works with wordpress 4.7.3
Thanks you saved my time

Best EVER!

I needed to create a growing zone app where I would use the visitor’s zipcode to associate with a growing zone. This plugin allows for me to fetch the zipcode from the visitor’s ip address. Though it is not well stated, you will need to have access to your database, and you will need to create a table in your database and import the IP2LOCATION csv file to the new table. You will also need to have access to the server via FTP or cPanel to upload the appropriate bin and csv files. You may also need to periodically update the database, because it will probably not update on its own unless you pay for those services. There are ways to programmically have the database be updated automatically, but you will need to know what you are doing. Setting all of this up is not for the amateur, but once it is set up, it is awesome!
