Version 4.9.1 of the Experience add on for WordPress  has been released today.   The issues cited here do not affect MySLP service users.

Shortcode Attributes and Checkbox Settings

A bug was patched in Experience 4.9.1 that was triggered when using the [slplus] shortcode with any extra attributes.  For example [slplus center_map_at=”My Town”] would trigger the issue as would [slplus only_with_category=”Retail”].

Prior to 4.9.1 using any attribute in the slplus shortcode would turn OFF the following settings regardless of how they are set in the main Store Locator Plus settings tab:

  • allow_addy_in_url
  • disable_initial_directory
  • hide_address_entry
  • hide_map
  • immediately_show_locations
  • ignore_radius
  • show_maptoggle

Experience 4.9.1 will work with older versions of the Store Locator Plus base plugin, however we recommend you upgrade SLP, Experience, Power, and Premier to the latest 4.9.1 release to address other issues that have been patched in the past 2 weeks.

We are still working on known issues with categories and tags and hope to have a 4.9.2 series of patches out next week.
