I am trying to pick the correct theme for my site. What I’m noticing is I misunderstood the difference between WP.com and WP.org. I decided to go with WP because of the great reviews but was concerned I wouldn’t be able to add a store locator. A friend mentioned they added one and they are using WP. Easylocator.com is what they are currently using. After doing some research, it sounds like she might have .org.
My question is, am I going to be able to add in the code for the easy locator widget? The whole point of our site is to tell people where they can buy our product.
Yes, your friend is talking about .org. I’m familiar with your business from working in retail and I suggest you go with .org yourelves. You can use a Google Map overlay with WordPress,com but it’s not as seamless.
It can be made interactive with various overlays, but really, if you’re lucerne farms, you’re going to outgrow Wp.com and need WP.org pretty quickly. WP.com for instance can only post static pins on Gmaps. WP.org can continuously add pins.
