    Eyal, can you integrate with WP Engine’s new GeoIP caching product?

    #30032

    Hi Mike,
    I was not aware of this new product until now. It does look promising and I will look into using it with GEO my WP.
    How exactly do you think GEO my WP can be used with GeoIP?
    For which features?

    Thank you

    Passing info out into their buckets. I have GeoIP installed on my server but it’s sort of useless unless GeoMyWP passes the info to their buckets. I have buckets for Street, City, Zip being cached now.

    Thank you.
    I will have to look into that. I need to install the feature and learn how it works first.

    Hi Mike.
    I would take a look at the feature to see how it set-up and the way it works. However, I am not sure how much of a use would it be to GEO my WP.

    If I understand correctly, you want to pass the user’s current position which retrieved by GEO my WP ( current location shortcode ) into the location “buckets” ? And if that is the case what would you do with the information.

    I apologize but it is not very clear to me. Perhaps since I don’t full understand how this feature works. Maybe if you describe in details what exactly is that you are trying to achieve It will help me better understand.

    Thanks

    GeoIP was updated again and works much better however, I’m still trying to figure out how to capture the data from GeoIP and pass it on to the values for the user location with Geo my WP.

    One of the GeoIP dev’s said “<span style=”line-height: 1.5;”>It looks like ‘Geo My WP’ does support hooks to provide default values. You should be able to hook into that extensibility to populate ‘Geo My WP’ with values from GeoIP”</span>

    any ideas on how I can do this or what I can add to pass the functions?

    Here’s their info, http://wpengine.com/2015/05/26/geoip-makes-localizing-content-simple/

    Hi Mike,

    I am not sure which hook you are referring to but If  you want to save the GeoIP data in GEO my WP users current location data ( instead of using the Current location widget that provided by GEO my WP ) you will need to pass it to the user location cookies.

    The cookies being used for the users location are:

    gmw_street, gmw_city, gmw_state, gmw_zipcode, gmw_address, gmw_lat, gmw_lng

    I don’t want to use WP users location. I was hoping that I could take the data captured from GeoIP because it’s server side without any prompts from the user experience and pass it to the current location data that’s captured on my forms. I have that autolocate turned on inside my Global Map. Are those the same variables (<span style=”color: #4b4d4d; font-family: ‘Open Sans’, ‘Helvetica Neue’, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif; font-size: 14px; line-height: 22px;”>gmw_street, gmw_city, gmw_state, gmw_zipcode, gmw_address, gmw_lat, gmw_lng)</span>

    Hey Eyal, I was at WordCamp Philly today and after talking to some dev’s they said there should be an easy way to do this where on page load when the map’s autolocator feature starts to work, it should be able to populate, using some hooks, your cookies {gmw_street, gmw_city, gmw_state, gmw_zipcode, gmw_address, gmw_lat, gmw_lng}.

    It’s basically what they mention here, I think. Again, I’m not a developer so I could be wrong but this feature would be awesome for those of us using WP Engine

    any help is appreciated
