WordPress store locator


In a project I worked on earlier this year, I needed a store locator on WordPress but couldn't find any satisfying plugin. It was either too complicated, didn't do what I wanted, or had tons of expensive add-ons. I decided to code my own using the awesome Advanced Custom Fields plugin and the great add-on for map location fields.

This is an extremely basic store locator, good for people who already use Advanced Custom Fields.


  1. Install Advanced Custom Fields if you haven’t already.
  2. Copy the folder acf-store-locator in your plugins directory.
  3. Activate


  1. You will see a new “Stores” menu item in WordPress admin. Create stores here: title, content, image, use the location field to geocode the address.
  2. When you’re done adding stores, use the shortcode [acf-store-locator] in any post or page to show the map.
  3. When visiting the store locator page, if your browser supports it, it will detect your location, if not, it will show the US.
  4. You can type a city name or a zip code and if a store exists in the location you’re typing, you will see an autocomplete.
  5. That’s it! Click on a marker to see the store details.


The plugin is available here: https://bitbucket.org/_karine/acf-store-locator.


Here are some screenshots of the plugin with theme Twenty Thirteen.

    Hi Karine,

    J'ai un soucis avec la traduction.
    J'ai bien essayé d'ajouter ma traduction espagnole au dossier langue mais qtranslate ne charge rien d'autre que la VF. La langue de base du wordpress installé.

    As-tu une solution ?

    Bien à toi,

      As-tu bien les fichiers .po et .mo avec les bons suffixes pour l'espagnol ?
