WordPress Plugin Foursquare Integration

Discover new places with Foursquare


Foursquare Integration is a WordPress Plugin that allows you to show a list of 30 places close by the user’s coordinates using Foursquare APIs. When the users block the coordinates sharing (geolocation), the plugin will show a free-input form. In this case, users can search for any location.

How does WordPress Plugin Foursquare Integration work?

The Geolocation API allows the user to provide their location to web applications if they so desire. For privacy reasons, you are asked for permission to report location information.

The plugin will get a list of 30 places close by your coordinates.

What is Foursquare?

Foursquare is the most trusted, independent location data platform for understanding how people move through the real world.

How does WordPress Plugin Foursquare Integration get access to user location data?

The API requires browser support and it consists of a small set of easy to use methods that can obtain the device position through GPS (primarily on mobile devices), WiFi (available on most internet-connected devices), or IP geolocation depending on what’s available. The results from the WiFi source are usually used as it is quicker than GPS and way more accurate than IP geolocation.

Geolocation disabled?

In this case, the plugin will display a one-field form where you can enter the name, or the zip code of a city, and discover new venues there. With some additional effort is possible to add autocompletion, query parameters management, and other features.


The plugin doesn’t change any data collected and returned by Foursquare.

Technologies: PHP7, Vue.js
