Advanced Custom Fields – Location Field add-on

by Julien Bechade

Overview


This is an add-on for the Advanced Custom Fields
WordPress plugin and will not provide any functionality to WordPress unless Advanced Custom Fields is installed
and activated.

The Location field provides:

  • a search field where you can type in some coordinates or an address and hit Enter.
  • a Google map which you can click at the desired location.

In both cases, Google will find the location and return the coordinates and the complete address, if you want it complete. A marker will be added at the desired location.

Usage

Make sure you read the Advanced Custom Fields‘s documentation first.

Back-end

The Location field comes with 3 options:

  1. The map address let you choose the value(s) to return on the front-end:
    • Coordinates & address
    • Coordinates
  2. The map center let you set the coordinates used to center the initial blank map.
  3. The map zoom.

Front-end

Retrieving the value(s) on the front-end differs according to the Map address options.

  • Coordinates & address
    $location = get_field(‘location’); echo $location[‘address’]; echo $location[‘coordinates’];
  • Coordinates
    the_field(‘location’);
