Sort Listings by Zip Code?

I am looking to create a directory type site specialized for just one industry. Basically I want to create a one stop place for people to go to find a resource in this one industry and then charge companies to have a listing in this directory. Is it possible to use this directory plugin to achieve this so someone coming to my site can simply search with their zip code to find all the companies in their area in this one industry?

Thanks!

    Hiya Steveo,

    As the directory plugin just uses custom post types there’s nothing specific in it to sort information by Zip Codes. However, you have a couple options available. You could provide instructions for all businesses to add their zip code as a ‘Listing Tag’ to their post.

    You could even use a separate plugin to change the words ‘Listing Tag’ to Zip Code so that it becomes more intuitive for them. We have a free plugin that will help you do this:

    Let us know if that works for you. Thanks!
