Wordpress Plugins – Extensions

Just another WordPress.com weblog

gPress adds new geo-relevant layers to WordPress, allowing you to create your own location-based services or to keep track of your own personal geo-tagged journies. Geo-Tag posts using native WordPress Mobile Applications, or create new places and share them with friends and family using native WordPress controls that utilizes custom post types and newly included widgets
Upload the gPress plugin and activate it – job done!

Why does nothing happen after I activate the plugin…?

gPress will only work with WordPress 3.0 (tested on rc3 or more), and once activated, the only new addition you will see at this point is the new places tab in the administrative back-end, right below the Posts tab and above the Media tab. If you activate gPress on anything less than WP 3.0, this additional tab will not show-up.

Do I need to apply for a Google Maps API Key…?

Since gPress uses Google Maps API 3 it does NOT require an API key.

Why does the styling not match my theme…?

To be honest, at this point, we have ONLY tested the plugin using the default Twenty Ten theme. We will run more tests in different themes as we reach version 0.2 onwards, but at this stage, we’re focusing on functionality and testing that functionality by using the Twenty Ten theme…
