Display GEO Distance ClassiPress

Live Demo

Once the visitor agrees to allow their browser to share their location, their current location (accuracy varies per browser on a pc) is auto-filled in the ‘City or Zip/Postal Code’ field in the ‘Refine Results’ box. The ads found within the ‘Radius’ will be displayed showing the ‘distance away’ from the zip/postal code once the ‘Refine Results’ button is clicked. Clicking the arrow on each ads distance displayed will drop down sub-menus: Directions, Map, Map & Directions. Clicking any sub-menu item will open a new tab, giving driving directions, map or map & driving directions.

SMARTPHONE OPTIMIZED: The auto location is optimized for smartphone use. While traveling, this plugin utilizes the high accuracy of the phone’s GPS to pinpoint your exact location. As you travel, you will see the location update automatically. Click the ‘Refine Results’ button to find the ads near your location and to pause the auto location feature. On the move again? Refresh the smartphone’s browser and your location begins filling the ‘City or Zip/Postal Code’ field automatically as you travel.

Displaying the distance away is useful when selling large items where the customer has to pick an item up (ie. autos, motorcycles, etc.).

You choose either miles or kilometers, the distance displayed will be in that particular unit of measure.

Feature Highlights

Totally customize how the ‘distance away’ looks on your site.
Make the ‘distance away’ display match your site by selecting:

  • font color – click in the ‘Font Color’ text box, a pop-up window of colors appears. Click the color for your font.
  • background color – click in the ‘Background Color’ text box, a pop-up window of colors appears. Click the color for your background.
  • location to ‘display the GEO distance’ on the classified ads – left, center, right
  • select the Distance Unit – ‘miles’ or ‘kilometers’
  • choose a ‘flat’ style or a ‘3D’ style for your display

Don’t make your customers guess how far they’d have to travel to pick up an ad item, let them see the ‘distance away’ on every ad they view! And allow them to get directions, map or map & directions with a simple click on the drop down sub-menu!

Why don’t I see the distance displayed on my ads?

Make sure the ‘enabled’ checkbox is checked on the plugin admin page.
Make sure you are using the Refine Results (advanced search feature built into ClassiPress). See documentation here.
Make sure you enter a zip/postal code or city, state and other parameters within the Refine Results which will find ads within those parameters.

To install, upload the plugin via the WordPress Administrator Panel. Or extract the plugin’s files and manually upload via FTP.

Once activated, click on the “Display Distance” menu found under the ClassiPress menu on the left sidebar. Make your selections then click the ‘Save’ button.
