Give members more exposure in the directory! The Multi-Location Listing add-on allows members to list themselves in additional geographical locations.


When members select these additional locations, website visitors will see more results when they conduct searches in the directory – providing members with increased visibility.

Enabling the Add-On


To add this as a feature for a membership level, simply navigate to Finance >> Membership Plans:




Click on Edit Settings for the membership level that will have this feature activated:




Click on Search Visibility tab:




Scroll down until the admin sees the "Max. Location Limit" option and set the "Max. Location Limit" to anything above 0. This will determine the number of service areas each member can add.  Make sure to also choose the types of locations members can choose as service areas in the "Location Types" setting:




When it has been activated this feature on the membership level, the member's back-end will have this extra option:




From here the members will have the option to add additional locations to their profiles by adding the locations here:




To edit the wording of country, state, county, city and/or postal code please go into the text labels and search for these keywords:


  • service_label_city
  • service_label_country
  • service_label_county
  • service_label_state
  • service_label_zip




Fully deleting the wording in the text label will hide the option for the members, in the example below we removed "County" from the service_label_county text label and it no longer appears:




Admins will be able to search for member's service area in the Search Members section:




Important: The check box to include service areas in the admin search will not show until a location is added to the search criteria. 


The admin as well has the option to include any of the members in ALL the locations around the world. This means any time someone searches for any location around the world they should appear as long that they fit the category criteria as well.


Please go to Member - Search Member and click on Quick Edit for the member you wish to show in all locations:
