Add A Locator To Wix (MySLP 17.8.1)

Wix is one of the most popular website “block builder” tools in use today.   Wix makes it easy to build complex websites with advanced functionality.    Adding a Store Locator Plus location finder to your Wix site is easy thanks to their HTML Code embed widget.    Follow these steps to get started.

Create A MySLP Account

Sign up for one of the several MySLP account options available.

Add Some Locations

Log in to your MySLP account and add some locations or use the import feature (for Power or higher level accounts) to add dozens of locations at one time.

Generate Your Embed Code

After you have loaded your locations, click Generate Embed on the top right of the page.

Click “Copy To Clipboard” button once the Generate Embed page is up.

Create Your Wix Site

Go through the process of getting your Wix site started.   They have free accounts and advanced premium accounts available.

Add A Location Page

Go to the top menu bar when you are in edit mode on your Wix site.       Select the “Add Page” menu option and give it a simple name like “Locations”.

Add An Embed Block

After the page is added go the left sidebar in Wix and click on the Plus symbol to add a content block.

Look for the More entry on the bottom of the list and click it.

Choose the HTML Code option on the top of the slide-out panel that appears.

Drag the box and drop it on your page.

Add The MySLP Code

Click on the “Edit Code” button that appears above the HTML Code box.

Select “Code” from the Wix radio buttons listed.

Paste the entire contents of the MySLP Embed Code box you copied earlier from your MySLP login.

Click the Wix “Update” button.

Within a few seconds you should see the MySLP map and locations interface appear in the box.

Resize the box by grabbing the “handles” and dragging it to the edges of your Wix content area.   Make it tall enough to show the search form, map, and results below the map.

Publish

On the top right of the page click Publish.

Done

When you publish the site you will have a new locations page with your MySLP map.  It will be a URL like our  https://icecream393.wixsite.com/best-sc-ice-cream example.
