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.

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.
