SLP Default Style Update (July 2017)

The Default style in the Store Locator Plus Style Gallery was updated this week.  The following changes have been made:

Phone and Fax fields are in a new div with the contact_info class.  These fields are displayed on their own line in the results.

Website, Email, and Directions links are in a new div with the online_info class.  These fields are displayed on their own line in the results.

The hours span has the textblock class added which displays the hours on its own line and with a pre-wrap format.

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.
