Today we would like to share another great plugin for wordpress with you. The plugin is called “Locations”. As you can guess from its name, it is a simple-to-use plugin for adding Locations with Maps to your WordPress Theme using a shortcode.

The plugin is quite useful and you can easily display your address (or some other address) on your blog/post with a nice and easy to use map. Users will see your location information formatted in an easy to use layout. It provides links for Directions – which will start from your current location on location-enabled devices – sending an email, or contacting you via phone. Locations includes the option to display a Google Map pinpointed on your current location, too!

If you have multiple locations the plugin allows you to output as many locations, each with their own map, on any page as you want. You can also use one shortcode to list them all.
