No you don’t need to make seperat pages for each city or state or country.
The result only display for selected city only at a time.
If you have selected state then it will display the list of all states.’ same way if you have selected any country , it will display you list of all country.
The duplicate cities that you should check it once by add the same name city and check because I am sure there is no problem for duplicate name .
Then also if there is any problem, we can solve it.
I loaded the plugin however, its not working. One city is showing but when you click on the city it goes to a link that shows the state with a text link that when clicked does not do anything.
Please advise how to get the listings to show when the citiy link is clicked.
Issue Fixed. Everything is working as it should.
I had the Places Page and and Places Listings Page set to the same page (Places)
I’m using your plugin for a while now and its working great. Just wondering if you can make it work for Posts as well?
For listings we can differentiate it by location like state, city… but how the post can be because post have never address? You may send your detail idea on our email : email@example.com
This looks like what I was searching for. A way to create mass pages based on location (state/city). So assuming I was browsing PLUMBERS, and I click the link to a city (Los Angeles), it will open a page líke PLUMBERS in Los Angeles.
Also (if possible) in a situation where user opens a city page, is it possible to display a list of nearby cities, maybe using map co-ordinates to determine the cities around the selected city
Alternatively, I have a plugin that can create mass pages with the desired URL structure. Is there a way to use that in conjunction with your plugin?
