How to Add GEO Location to Your Wordpress Posts
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?

    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
