    Hi Gary,

    first of all, thanks for providing such an awesome plugin and a happy new year!

    I just wanted to ask if you plan on making it possible to submit the Place_ID directly instead of an adress text search. The Places API Text Search service is subject to a 10-times multiplier regarding usage limits, the direct search via Place_ID is not.

    Cheers,
    Benedikt

    Hey Benedikt,

    Yes…the search is indeed counted at 10x.
    The search will only happen the first time you save the post. At that point the place ID is attached as post_meta to the post. Future google places API calls will be with the place id.

    I don’t *think* there would be any issue with you setting the value for meta key _wp_places to the place ID directly.

    Hope that helps,
    Gary
