List Locations BMLT


List Locations BMLT is a plugin that returns all unique towns or counties from your BMLT server for a given service body on your site.

Basic: [list_locations]
Attributes: root_server, services, recursive, state, delimiter, list, state_skip, city_skip

— Shortcode parameters can be combined


A minimum of root_server and services attribute are required, which would return all towns for that service body seperated by a comma.

Ex. [list_locations root_server="" services="50"]

Recursive: to recurse service bodies add recursive="1"
Ex. [list_locations root_server="" services="50" recursive="1"]

State: to remove appending of the state add state="0"
Ex. [list_locations root_server="" services="50" state="0"]

State Skip: to skip the inclusion of a state when using state="1" add state_skip="NC"
Ex. [list_locations root_server="" services="50" state="1" state_skip="NC"]

City Skip To skip the inclusion of a city add city_skip="Indianapolis". This can be useful when mentioning a city out of order or in a different part of the text.
Ex. [list_locations root_server="" services="50" state="1" city_skip="Indianapolis"]

Services: to add multiple service bodies just seperate by a comma.
Ex. [list_locations root_server="" services="50,37,26"]

Delimiter: to change the delimiter to something besides a comma I would add delimiter=" – " or to create newlines between each I could do this delimiter="<br>", or delimiter="<p></p>"
Ex. [list_locations root_server="" delimiter="<br>"]

List: You can list by the following town, county, borough, neighborhood. The default is town.
Ex. [list_locations root_server="" list="town"]

We used to have to manually maintain a list of cities on each service body page. This is amazing, we no longer have to do that!
