Oops, sorry another quick release…

Version 3.1.1 seemed to contain a weird bug that was triggered on activating the plugin, and slipped through the net when I was testing locally.

For some reason the filename wp-geo/includes/template.php was causing an error – maybe clashing with something in WordPress, I haven’t figured out exactly what yet.

Anyway, renaming that file seems to have fixed the issue so please download WP Geo 3.1.2…

  1. The plugin just doesn’t seem to work at all on my site…

    The manual tag does nothing
    The sidebar widget does nothing
    Selecting the wp_geo button while editing a post does place the tag, but that is all

    However I do not see any errors in my logs, and looking at the headers that come by, google successfully authenticates my API key?!…

    This post has the manual tag:

    And the widget is between the weather stamp and categories in the right panel!

    Totally flabbergasted on this one… The first plugin ever to not work on my installation! 🙁

  2. Hello!

    I found one strange thing that if I have existing articles and add a geo position the widget does not show it. It only shows articles and its position if newly created. Is this a bug or a feature. I’m using version 3.1.2

    best regards

    This plugin (Version 3.1.2) is working well on my site using WP 2.9.1 (first geotag plugin that did!) with one minor exception … the marker text is not showing up in either the post or the sidebar. I just get a white box attached to the marker when I mouse over it. Maybe user error but I have no idea where.

      Steve, I think your theme is styling text to be white which the tooltip text is inheriting. You can fix this by editing the tooltip style in wp-geo/css/wp-geo.css

      Add the bottom, add a color style to the tooltip:

      #tooltip2 {
      z-index: 1000;
      position: absolute;
      border: 1px solid #CCCCCC;
      padding: 3px 5px;
      background-color: #FFFFFF;
      max-width: 300px;
      text-align: left;
      display: none;
      font-family: Arial, sans-serif;
      font-size: 11px;

    It’s a good plugin, and OK with WP 2.9, but he’s in conflict with Lightbox2 ( this images are not with effect slide show). Thinks

    Great plugin!

    I’ve been using it with my site, and now I’m getting my students in my “digital sketchbook” class to use it with their blog posts, geo-referencing places on campus (skidmore college).

    The only problem I’ve come across in using it with skidmore’s somewhat inaccessible blog install is that the post maps (using [wp_geo_map]) don’t show any markers, they’re just centered on the location. I’m waiting to hear back from the IT people here at skidmore college, checking to see if they messed up the install, but wondered if you had any tips. here’s one of the posts:

    thanks again for a very useful addition to wordpress.
    thanks again

    thanks, ben!
    i passed your info on to the IT folks, i hope they can work on it soon.

    Put those file paths on the server for you Pat; the images are now showing. Thanks for the information Ben.

    new problem, dang!!

    now on the edit post page in WP the google map section hangs with the message “Loading Google map…” and a blank space where the map should be. Already-placed maps work fine and display correctly on the front end, it’s only in creating new posts that the map is inaccessible.

    Again, VERY likely another problem on our end, just wondered if you had any tips.

    Hello Ben,

    Great plugin, easy to use!

    I have a situation, which you might have a quick answer:

    How would I know whether the maps will be shown on a post through your plugin?

    $isThereAnyMap = $wpgeo->categoryMap();
    if( no maps ) show different header;

    I do not want to tamper any plugins on the site I am using, as it would break the whole thing when I am upgrading.

    Thanks a lot!

    thanks for your nice WP plugin.
    Does your plugin offer an API (e.g. XML-RPC) to automatically retrieve Geo coordinates from a post?
