- In your WordPress dashboard, go to ZodiacPress –> Settings, and click the Misc tab.
- For the Choose Atlas setting, choose “Use my own atlas database.” (See Choosing an Atlas for help with this decision.)
- Click the blue button that says Run the Atlas Installer. (Or skip this step if you prefer to use a separate database.)
- When you click Run the Atlas Installer, it will immediately begin importing cities into your database in the background. This may take one minute or up to 5 minutes. Once it is finished, you’ll get a pop-up message in the admin back-end that says:
The atlas installation is complete. It is ready for use.
You do not have to stay on the admin page while the Atlas is installing. You are free to leave the page or the site. The Atlas will continue installing itself behind the scenes. It should not take more than 5 minutes to complete (but this can vary).
- You can check the installation status by going back to ZodiacPress > Settings > Misc tab. If the Atlas installation is complete, the “Status” row will say Active like in this image:
That’s it. Now, the ZodiacPress report form will get the city’s longitude and latitude from your own atlas database instead of using GeoNames.
