Plugin Description

Nearby creates a table of nearby locations (pages) based on GPS co-ordinates.

Nearby integrates with the following azurecurve plugins:

  • Flags from azurecurve allows a location to be set for a page; this will display the location flag next to the location name in the table of nearby attractions.
  • Icons from azurecurve allows an icon to be displayed next to a nearby location which has an entry on a timeline (requires integration with Timelines to be enabled).
  • Timelines from azurecurve allows a character (such as *) to be displayed next to a nearby location which has an entry on a timeline.
  • Toggle Show/Hide from azurecurve allows the table of nearby locations to be enclosed with a toggle.

Apply the [nearby] shortcode to a page with co-ordinates and nearby locations (pages with co-ordinates), based on the settings, will be displayed in a table.

The shortcode accepts two parameters:

  • type to limit nearby attractions (multiple types can be provided in comma separated string).
  • title to override the default toggle title.

Example shortcode usage:

[nearby type="Distilleries" title="Nearby Distilleries"]
