Sightings lets you or your readers geo-tag any post or page in your WordPress site to display your blog posts on a Google map.

Why navigate your blog by search or menus? Display your blog on Google maps instead! The purpose of Sightings is to allow you to link any of your post or page with a specific geographic location. Sightings is an easy to use plug-in that utilizes the Google Maps v3 JavaScript API to let you geo-tag any post or page in your WordPress site. Since version 1.3 you can even let your visitors submit their own geotagged places by dropping their own markers on the [sightings-map]! Display all your recorded sightings on a larger map by using the shortcode: [sightings-map] on any post or page.

Example of situations where you'd find Sightings useful, if:

  • you're blogging about UFO sightings and want to display the location where the UFO was seen
  • you're reporting news and want to pin-point the location of main event in the story
  • you're blogging about the latest trip you took to a city or a nice place where you've been on vacation
  • you want to give directions to someone about something connected to what you are writing
