Creating Locations

  • Browse to LocationsAdd New in the WordPress admin.
  • Enter a title and description for your location (required).
  • Enter the location’s phone number.
  • Enter the location’s email address.
  • Enter the service times for the location.
  • Enter an address for your location. If you would like to display a directions link, make sure Show directions link is checked.
  • Enter the latitude and longitude of the location. This is required if you want to display a map of the location. This tool is helpful to convert addresses into latitude and longitude values.
  • Select the type of map you want to display on the location page.
  • Select the level of zoom for the location map. Somewhere in the mid-teens is usually good.

Location Widgets

  • Locate the Locations widget in the left hand column, and drag and-drop to your desired sidebar.
  • Enter a title for your widget. If you enter no title, it will default to “Locations.”
  • Configure the additional widget settings as desired.
