Now Available: Geolocation Plugin for WordPress

Posted on 3 May 10 by Danilo Ercoli

Recently, we introduced a geotagging feature in WordPress for BlackBerry that allows our users to geotag posts. While the response we received was positive, many of our users requested a plugin that would allow them to display the geotagged data on their self-hosted WordPress sites.

We’re very happy to announce that the Geolocation plugin is now available for self-hosted WordPress sites, and can be downloaded at the WordPress.org plugin directory or through your WordPress dashboard: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/geolocation

The plugin adds a subtle but powerful addition to posts you’ve geotagged using WordPress for BlackBerry: a link appears inside your post with a short description of the location where the post was tagged. When your users hover over the link, an interactive map appears allowing them to view the location as a pin on the map.

And if you’ve got a post that you forgot to geotag using WordPress for BlackBerry, we’ve got you covered there as well. Just open up the Edit Post page, and you’ll be able to easily add geo information using the Geolocation panel. All you’ve got to do is put in an address and hit Load.

We think this new plugin serves as a nice companion to all WordPress Mobile apps. Check it out and let us know what you think!

    Any plans on adding support for standard meta data formats? It’d be nice to see GeoRSS markup in the feeds, so that one could easily import the feed directly into Google Maps or similar.

      @Otto, that’s a great idea and something we will definitely look into further down the line. Thanks!
