Adding A Locator To A Weebly Site

Weebly is my new favorite “block builder” website creation tool.   Creating a basic website is quick and easy.  Adding a MySLP based locator is no different.    The process is very easy for anyone that can use a web browser.

Create Your MySLP Account

Sign up for your MySLP service. Any level of service will work including the low-cost Advanced level.

Add A Location or Ten

After you have created your MySLP account go ahead and add at least one location.     Once you have the locations added you will be able to deploy your locator.

Store Locator Plus 4.8 Imminent

The next release of Store Locator Plus is wrapping up testing and will be released soon for WordPress Plugins and is on a fast track for release on the MySLP platform within 10 days.

The focus on this update has been bug fixes as well as a rework of the Manage Locations user interface.   The new Manage Locations interface has a faster location editor system based on JavaScript.  This eliminates the extra server posts and page loads when editing a location from the location list.

We also clean up some bugs in this series.  Most notably a bug in the Experience add on that only impacts the WordPress plugin users running version 4.7.10 of Experience (MySLP users are not impacted by this issue) that disabled multiple search and page load features provided by the Experience add on including order by featured, listing featured locations first, state and city filtering and their drop downs among other issues.      Bugs were addressed for Power users with the import duplicates handler.

What’s Baking? Updates for SLP, Power, Experience, Premier

Store Locator Plus updates are ready to roll out for May  2017.   The updates will first come to the WordPress plugins.   MySLP will be updated in the next 3-4 weeks pending testing.   Here is what is coming in this series of updates.

Store Locator Plus

The base plugin that impacts all levels of MySLP service and the Store Locator Plus application stack.

Various updates have been made to allow the Style Gallery to better support additional user experience modifiers available in the Experience and Premier Add On packs.   For example the base plugin now has a Search Form Styles selection that provides access to built-in jQuery styling that makes things like drop down menus and autocomplete features look a little nicer.

The Default style in the Style Gallery has been updated.  You do not need to update the base plugin to take advantage of this update.  If you are already using the Default style select a different style from the Settings / View tab in Store Locator Plus (start with Advaned Options in MySLP) and switch it back to Default to pull the new style from the Style Gallery server.    If you have SLP 4.7.10 it will take advantage of some new HTML attributes to better style the search form layout, especially when dropping labels in front of some input fields on the locator.
