Whereabouts Update

I recently updated Whereabouts, my WordPress location plugin.

It now allows you to set your current location using the browser’s geolocation api. What that means is: you press a button, and with a little help from Google’s Maps API, you automatically get back your location, without the need of typing it in manually.

Google returns the results at different levels of accuracy. Just choose the one you like and save your whereabouts.

You can get Whereabouts from wordpress.org or just search for it from inside your WordPress installation.

picu

Today we announced picu, our upcoming WordPress plugin, that is aimed at photographers and will help them in their daily workflow.

As Claudio wrote, it is still a bit rough around the edges, but we are in the process of getting our alpha out to a close group of photographer friends. We will release more info about features and free/paid options in the coming weeks, so stay tuned!

Head over to picu.io and subscribe, to get informed once picu is ready!

Whereabouts Update

I updated my Whereabouts WordPress Plugin a few times since it first launched a couple of weeks ago.

One of the main requests was to enable every user to set their individual location. So I implemented that feature first. Other enhancements include the ability for the admin to decide which users are allowed to use the plugin depending on their role, and a shortcode, that let’s you display the location anywhere in the theme.

Try it, and tell me what you think.
