Since WordPress updated their iOS app to include location for posts, it came to my attention that it is fairly easy to add location to your posts – and it works nicely with the “Quick Photo” feature of the iOS WordPress app.

Unfortunately after I installed the WordPress GeoLocation plugin OnSwipe’s iPad theme stopped working for me. After some digging it turned out it is because Geolocation is overwriting the default alias of $ of jQuery which was breaking OnSwipe.

Here is how to fix that:

  1. Go to your admin panel
  2. Go to Plugins -> Editor
  3. In the drop-down Select plugin to edit choose “Geolocation”
  4. From the file list Plugin Files (just underneath the drop-down) select geolocation/geolocation.php
  5. Find in the code the function add_google_maps (use your browser’s search function and look for “function add_google_maps”)
  6. Find the line that reads: var $j = jQuery.noConflict(); either comment it out by prepending two slashes in front of it or delete it
  7. In its place add the following: $j = jQuery;
  8. Click Update File

This should fix OnSwipe and at the same time allow your visitor to view the location tag of your posts!
