    Recently, I got interested in developing a WordPress plugin which would add location to my posts. The idea was inspired from 'Facebook', where we have locations tagged with our every post (unless we disable it.). I started developing Geolocate My Posts yesterday and was able to complete it today morning, The publishing process took around 4-5 hours and here we are, The plugin is live now. In this article we'll be looking How to install this plugin and How to use it?

    Installing and Activating the Plugin



    1. Go to http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/geolocate-my-posts/
    2. Download it!
    3. Extract the zip file contents to wp-content/plugins/
      Note: The plugin contains a /js folder which contains a JavaScript file which gets the coordinates from the user's browser. Add the folder in wp-content/plugins/
    4. Go to your Admin Panel
    5. From the sidebar, click on plugins
