Geolocator

Description

Get website visitor’s location based on IP address and show/hide specific content depending on country.

Meta box

You can hide post for particular country by filling “Hide for” field in custom meta box in post’s edit screen. That way the post will not be included to the loop and other parts of the website.

Shortcodes

Country

The most basic shortcode of the plugin is [geolocator] which displays country of the visitor.

Show

The shortcode accepts “for” attribute. It should be a 2-letter ISO code of the country you want to show the content for.

Hide

You can hide some specific content for particular country by using [geolocator_hide] shortcode. See example below.

[geolocator_hide for="US"]This information is NOT being shown to visitors from United States.[/geolocator_hide]

The shortcode accepts “for” attribute. It should be a 2-letter ISO code of the country you want to hide the content for.

This plugin relies on data from a third party. That third party says they discontinued the data on 2 January 2019. A pity: it looked quite good.
