Using Google's API tools GEO my WP provides an advance proximity search for any post type or buddypress's members based on a given address a
Cannot fault this plugin, extremely useful for niche websites, and powerful with other plugins. well done..
This is a super powerful plugin that can be used in a simple, basic way to add searchable locations to posts (of any 'post type') and create custom forms (you can create as many as you need) that include different search parameters such as taxonomies and radius values.
But much more than that, it's quite versatile in the ways you can (if you know how or are prepared to read and learn) create customised code that incorporates the features of the plugin to make solutions specific to your needs. (For example I've been able to set up automatic buddypress/bbpress notifications of all members within X miles of a location specified within a topic, using this plugin and some custom coding.)
Another great point is that the author is generally quick to respond and happy to provide advice and solutions to queries both here on the WP forums and on his own website, which is such a relief when you're trying to custom code or if you're having trouble setting things up. And because there are premium addons to accompany the plugin, hopefully this means development will continue for a good long while.
Only issues/notes are:
- There are a few spelling errors in the phrasing of labels and things when using the plugin in the backend. This is completely understandable as (I believe) the author is not an english speaker natively so really a very minor problem but sometimes makes the plugin feel less polished.
- It's difficult to implement the GMW location field on the front end (I've not yet got this worked out) for example when a user is creating a new bbpress topic. There is a code sample on the authors website so that this can be done using the popular WP User Frontend plugin but I haven't found this solution to work as per my needs. Hopefully I can figure out how to alter that code sample to fit my needs and a more knowledgeable coder might find this task very easy. If this functionality could be provided (either by default in the plugin or more code examples for different use types) I think I would've given a 5 star rating.
Ok, that's the end of my long review. Thank you again Eyal for sharing such a useful plugin with the WP community! :)
Integrates well with custom post types, and the radius search is great.
Could include more options so I don't have to make my own plugin to customize it. For example, I used it on a site for hiking trails, so I didn't need all the additional information (store hours etc) on the edit screen, so I had to hide it with admin CSS. These sections should have a checkbox to include.
Excellent documentation on the plugin's website.
Does what it says and is very flexible
a long time looking for this tool for buddypress users.
i love you.
