Support » Plugin: CF Geo Plugin » How to target to a region?

  • Resolved RoamFree


    It says “to target your messages to people from certain regions” but I don’t see a way to emit a message based upon being/not being in a certain region. Nor by IP address (192.168.*.*?)

    I only see a way to insert a location into text, but I don’t consider that to be “targeting”.

    Hi, Thanks for using CF GeoPlugin.

    Yes you can. Here is the examples:

    • “Enter Your Number To See Available Cars In Toronto
    • “Click Here To Get Approved In Ontario
    • “Exclusive Offer Available in New York

    -That’s how you can target message to people using DKI technics.

    Now your problem:

    I don’t see a way to emit a message based upon being/not being in a certain region. Nor by IP address (192.168.*.*?)

    -For now CF GeoPlugin is like a child, do basic things like dynamic keyword insertation, but if you are developer and you have PHP knowledge, you can use do_shortcode() function inside your PHP scripts and insert CF GeoPlugin shortcodes into your algorithm. You can do many interesting stufs there. Also inside javascript and jQuery you can do something like this for Contact Form 7 plugin – like example:

    [text* text-63 id:City]
    [text* text-64 id:State]
    	// use CF GeoPlugin Shortcode inside JS
    	var city = "[cf_geo return=city]";
    	var state = "[cf_geo return=state]";
    	// after page loaded place data inside forms

    Soon we planning to made inside CF GeoPlugin options for you inside wp-admin to place banners, messages or pages based on geolocation by city, state, country timezone, etc, but that is for the next version.

    Okay, so at present the plugin can personalize instead of target. I can’t aim at a specific target, all I can do is hang a magical banner welcoming everyone from [your city here].

    The band leader yelling “It’s great to be on Cleveland” when in Cleveland is not targeting. The band playing Cleveland-oriented music when in Cleveland is targeting.

    I’ll look for a different tool, because I can’t wait for this tool to have the abilities which I need right now. Future readers, check the description to see what the plugin supports at the time you’re reading this.

    I’m sorry that from the beginning the plugin did not satisfy your needs.

    You are welcome to use another plugin that suits you.

    Soon we will incorporate new options and features to our plugin.
