GeoType v1.9.4

This plugin allows you to associate locations with blog entries using Google Maps. Each blog entry can have a location (latitude, longitude), and a map can be shown for the location. Also, a map can be shown which displays all of the locations for the entire blog. Locations can be found using addresses or by scrolling the map, so you do not need to find or lookup the coordinates for your location like many other plugins force you to do.

The plugin also allows for these blog entries to be published to mobile devices using the LightPole Publishing System.


Movable Type versions: 4.3

The installation didn’t work as advertised. It doesn’t prompt to upgrade the database, and the plugin fails to load. Also, the zip file contains lots of cruft directories like __MACOSX and hidden dot-underscore files (like ._mt-static)

Make sure that you install GeoType with Movable Type 3.3 or 1.5 Enterprise. It will not work with MT 4. If you want to geocode MT4 entries, please use use GeoSpatialSimple. Also, I updated the plugin to remove Mac OS specific hidden files.
