New hyperlocal WordPress plugin: OpeningTimes.co.uk

I received a tweet the other day from the wonderful Andy Mabbett. It read;

http://opening-times.co.uk/ is very #hyperlocal oriented. They’re on Twitter: @opening_times / @willperrin @getgood (widget, @philipjohn ?)

So I toddled over to the Opening Times web site and had a gander, found some XML there and thought to myself,

Hmm that’ll only take five minutes.

It took twenty but I created a very simple widget for WordPress that displays search results for an area you specify. Here’s a screenshot:

You can download it now although be aware that it’s in beta so it might throw up errors occasionally. I already know that it doesn’t handle postcodes very well, so be careful with using them.
