How to use the country switcher?

country switcher

GeotargetingWP includes a basic country switcher that will let you users change their default location using a dropdown. The switcher comes in two versions, a sidebar widget and a shortcode, both with the same options.

Country Switcher settings

  • Regions: Instead of displaying all countries it's easier to just show a few of them. You can use regions for that.
  • Flags: Choose whether you want to show country flags or not.

The shortcode version is [geot_dropdown regions="" flags="no"]

We don't have a cities dropdown widget but we show you how to build one in here.
