How To Create Native Mobile Apps (iOS and Android) that Shows Your Store Locator page?

With BuddyBoss App (requires monthly / yearly fee), you can easily create native mobile apps for iOS and Android based on your WordPress sites.

There are other solutions to create Mobile Apps for your WordPress website such as Appmaker WP (requires monthly fee). AppPresser (requires monthly fee), WPMobile.App (one time lifetime fee) and many more out there.

Take note, if you’re publishing the app under your own Apple Developer or Google Developer account, you may need to pay for the developer yearly fees in order to keep your app running on App Store / Google Play Store. Contact the respective mobile app solution provider authors for more info.

In this article, we’re going to discuss on how to publish your store locator mobile app page using BuddyBoss App plugin. For other solutions, you can refer to their documentation, knowledge base or contact the respective authors / developers directly for support.

2. There are a few ways to add store locator on your mobile app page.

a. The first way, is to paste the shortcode straight away on the page. Enter Your Title and add Super Store Finder shortcode [SUPER-STORE-FINDER] in the content. Save and publish the page.

You can refer to the knowledge base articles links here on how to publish the shortcode in WP BakeryVisual Composer and Elementor Page Builders. Other Page Builders should use the same method of publishing.

b. The second method, is instead of typing the shortcode directly on the page, you can press the + sign to add blocks and choose Quick Links.

You can add the title and icon of the Quick Link, then choose Custom Link URL and enter the Link URL of your store locator page ( i.e https://www.yoursite.com/store-locator )

Next, you will need to publish the page on your app menu. Go to BuddyBoss App > Branding and select either Tab Bar or More Screen

Then, you can add App Pages or WordPress Pages where you publish your store locator and simply add them to your mobile app menu.
