Install NearPlace with a JavaScript code.

There is also a possibility to install a plugin to the WordPress in the other way – by adding a raw JavaScript code of the app. 

The NearPlace locator installation code is available in the Installation tab in Locators menu of the administration panel.

In WordPress dashboard you need to find Appearance module and then Editor. On the right side, you have a list of all theme files. You need to choose Theme header to install NearPlace through JavaScript code.

Now you need to find <body> section of the code and paste installation code right before </body> tag. 

Note: My body code ends with <div id =”content”> and also a developer of theme mentioned that theme displays all before this <div>. Remember to read developer’s comments because they may be really useful.
