Hi, i am in the process of updating a client's website.

They have 4 different company Facebook accounts / pages:

UK
Ireland
US
Australia

They have a Facebook icon / link in the header of their website, and they want to change the link based on where they user is viewing their website from. If the user is based in the US, display the US Facebook Page link etc...

Their site is wordpress based. Can anyone recommend a way of accomplishing the above? Thanks in advance for your help.

It looks like you could use the WP GeoCode plugin. Have a look at this article:-

Cool, i've just looked at that, but can't seem to find a way how you could adjust the following line for each of the 3 countries:

Take a look at https://wordpress.org/plugins/wpgeocode/ - it looks like you could use the Shortcodes to do what you want.

e.g.:-

[wpgc_is_country_name" country_name="United Kingdom"] <a href="https"//facebook.com/UKpage">Go To Facebook</a>[/wpgc_is_country_name]
