Wander – A WordPress Plugin

Programming, WordPress

Wander is a WordPress plugin for travel bloggers that lets them and their readers keep track of countries they've visited, and where they currently are.

My origins in web development came from maintaining my travel blog. I did a fair amount of travelling, but it quickly became difficult to keep track of all the places I had been to, and organize it efficiently and in one place.

(A map of all the countries I’ve travelled to)ย 

That’s why I created Wander: A WordPress plugin designed to help travel bloggers manage their travel blogs efficiently and effectively.

How It Works

With a behind the scenes management page, users are able to easily manage a few different options.

Current Location

First and foremost, their current location. If you’re an avid travel blogger, chances are you move around a lot and want to keep everyone updated on your current location. With a “choose once, display everywhere” approach, user’s are able to pick a city and country, and display it with a shortcode in their website. That’s exactly how I’m able to tell you that I’m currently in Toronto, Canada right now.
