Geolocation without Redirection

Post by apay1 » Mon Oct 03, 2022 4:29 pm

Hello everybody,

I recently have written some PHP and HTML scripts to get the latitude and longitude of the user, inserting a redirection in the index.php to call a Java Script in a dedicated HTML script. It works fine but the redirection has ruined the Google natural referencing. Now Google doesn't want indexing my URLs because of that redirection.

So my question is simply this one : is there a way to catch the geographic data from the user web browser without any redirection ? Maybe a system plugin could do this, but I'm not sure, as PHP works in the server and HTML/JavaScritp works in the browser...

If anyone has got an idea, please let me know ! Thank you all. :)
