We keep hearing about local websites and social networks these days. If you are into traveling or covering the local development in your area, you can use themes such as WPLocator to get your portal online. WPLocator is a full-width location-based theme that lets its users showcase interesting places and information related to them on a map.
WPLocator has a full-width map you can use to showcase interesting places on your website. It offers two viewing modes (Satellite, Roadmap). You can differentiate between attractions you share on your site by type. You can also include pictures, directions, and other information on your map.
WPLocator has multiple page templates. Planning to blog on your website? This theme would support your sideblog too. Visitors can interact with your map and explore all the interesting points and their related information. The 30 short-codes integrated in this theme are helpful too.
