I've just started looking at building a classified ads/job directory website.
I'd like to use a location-based search if possible, but not sure if this is a bit too advanced for an 'out the box' solution? I've found 'Another WordPress Classified Ads Plugin, which looks really good, but needs all the locations adding manually.
I've seen search systems on sites that can calculate distances etc by using place names and post codes/zip codes. Does anyone know how these are set up, and if anything is out there in the wordpress plugin world to help me?
An idea of what I'm looking for can be seen on http://www.freeindex.co.uk/ - the location area autofills with locations within the UK.
Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks, Rich
