Adding a location to a post or page
When editing a post or page, scroll down and you will see a panel called ‘WP Geo Location’. This is where you can set the location for the post/page. There are 3 ways to set the location.
1. Entering the longitude and latitude manually
As you type the map will update to show the location.
2. Clicking on the map to position a marker
As you click the longitude and latitude fields will update. You can zoom in using the map controls to position the marker more accurately.
3. Search for an address or location
Enter a location into the search field and click ‘Search’. A marker will be positioned on the map to indicate the location. If the marker is not positioned correctly you can click on the map to reposition the marker or try another more specific search. The best way to search for address is to type the street address, a comma, the town, a comma, then the country.
Once you have set a location for your page and published it, if you set ‘Show Post Map’ in the Settings to ‘At top of post’ or ‘At bottom of post’ the map will automatically be displayed. If you set this to ‘Manually’ you will need at the [wp_geo_map] shortcode to your page content. In the rich text editor there is a WP Geo button you can press to insert this shortcode.
