SLP version 4.8 released : Required Update to Experience, Power and Premier add-ons

 

Store Locator Plus has been updated  to  feature new styles, while  removing old JavaScript commands that were left in the core base plug-in for the sole purpose of supporting the Legacy add-ons.  This release has finalized the process of  phasing out of the Legacy add-ons.

The last two  Legacy hold outs, ProPack and Tagalong are not compatible with version 4.8 of SLP.  Both of these legacy add-ons have been included with the Power Add-on which was released over a year ago.

Manage Locations UX has been updated: uses WordPress-standard Screen Options to set number of locations to show on a page and show/hide columns.

  • Manage Locations Edit / Add has been updated: uses JavaScript interface and overlay windows to edit locations.
  • Adding a location via the Manage Locations form no longer requires the store name to be set.
  • Lighten the data load going to the JavaScript front end to alleviate browser congestion and improve performance.
  • Uses minified JS for slp_core if available.
  • Patch to fix the Power Add On CSV Import duplicate handler.
  • Patch to deal with Experience Add On hide_search_form shortcode issue.
  • New Smart Option interface for add ons reduces redundant code.
  • Tagalong is no longer compatible with SLP, upgrade to the Power Add On.

Note: Premier, Power and Experience add-ons  that were versions lower then 4.8 will be deactivated . You must update those either through the auto updater in the WP admin panel or by logging into your account, downloading and updating manually.
