Any location based possibilites?

  • SalCollaziano


    I’d like to allow my BuddyPress members to adjust their feed to display the updates by members nearest to them in order by distance. Is this functionality available by any available plugins? If not, how difficult would it be to create?

    First, assuming you don’t mean real-time locations, members have to enter their location. For that you can use this plugin: BP xProfile Location.

    Then you need to write a script that does a radial search for other members. Often this is done using zip codes. It can also be done with lat / lng.

    Then you need to filter the feed to include only those members.

    I’m not aware of any plugins that provide that package.
    But if you are a developer, there are lots of resources for each step and you should be able to cobble something together.
