With our MultiLocations Manager you can turn your GeoDirectory into a global directory. As standard, GeoDirectory can be setup from a single location and listings can be added only for that location, but with our Location Manager plugin, you can let users set the location of their listings and the location will be stored in your locations database. This means users can then select any added location and browse listings only from that area (you can also browse from “Everywhere”).

The areas you can filter listings by are; Countries, regions, city or neighbourhoods. Apart from neighbourhoods all other areas can be added by a user when adding their listing. So the location does not have to be in your database for a user to be able to add a listing.

If a duplicate city is added with slightly different spelling, there is a tool to merge the two cities. Locations can also be edited/added by the admin from the backend.

  1. Hi,

    Does the MultiLocations addon create an actual page in the database for each location that’s added? For instance, if I had a website called TopLocalBarbers and someone Googled “barbers San Diego CA” or “barbers Houston TX”, and they clicked on my web page, would they be taken to the page of my site that had only those listings, or would they have to search from the home page? And does the addon allow me to use an SEO plugin to optimize each individual city page that I want to rank in search engines?

    Thanks for your help.

  2. Hi Paolo,

    Is the SEO option you mentioned in your above replay already in place or still being worked on? Will this be included in the upcoming release tomorrow or Saturday?

  3. Hi Paolo,

    On the Set Default Location mentions: “Post will be deleted if both city and map marker position has been changed”

    If I have this MultiLocations Manager, could I avoid my post / place information from being deleted when I change the location?

    Or is there a way to backup the the post / place (list of hotel)?

    Thank you

    • Hi,
      Multilocation allows to merge locations. To move all listings from one to another, instead of deleting/editing locations.
      If you move or delete a location, all places associated with it will be deleted.

      Thanks

  4. Paolo,

    Does this add-on come with the world countries, regions and cities pre-loaded in the database or does the developer still have to type in that information into the configuration area for it to be available to customers?

    Thanks

    • It comes with countries preloaded and uses google maps API to allow users to create locations that are not already available in the database.
      Thx

    • Exactly I can’t, but it’s on the developers to do list and I hope it will be available in next release. We agree it is a must.
      Thx

  5. Hi Paolo

    Thanks for your reply. It’s a must, absolutely. By integrating this Geodirectory will be by far the most search engine friendly directory solution for WordPress. This is a real USP guys!

  6. Hi Paolo,
    I am manish. i am from india and want to start a directory website of hotels, restaurents etc.
    I downloaded the standard version and tested in local server. i found it useful as i needed. well i want to ask one thing. if i use standard version for the single city at the beginning and use multi locations addon later, will it be easy to integrate other locations later using this add-on or there would be problems.
    should i use it in the beginning or can i use it later when i want to add other cities.
    Thanks
