Geolocation Plus

The Geolocation Plus AddOn allows you to add a latitude & longitude to a post in a way that works with the Geolocation and Geolocation Plus plugins.

WARNING: The Geolocation Plus plugin has not been updated in a long time and currently is incompatible with Google Maps. At this time I recommend using Open Street Maps. See Open Street Maps AddOn

Once installed Postie will recognize any geolocation information embedded in attached images and videos which most smartphones automatically do. Note that there is a bug in some versions of PHP that prevents this from working (currently 5.6.24-7.0.14 don’t work Note that if you have multiple attachments the plugin will use the location from the last one it processes.

Alternate Way

Alternatively you can supply some special text in your email:
{{location <latitude> <longitude>}}

For example:

We have finally arrived in Portland, Oregon!

{{location 45.52 122.6819}}
