SEO Pages and 12-Column Grid Support

Users of our WordPress Power plugin get some new layout control features for our Pages SEO module.   Users of our fully managed service will have to wait until later this year for our SEO page builder to be fully tested before getting that feature into our  Enterprise accounts.   MySLP users on the Power, Professional, or Enterprise accounts did get some other patches — see the end of this post.

12-Column Grid Support

Many sites, including thousands of WordPress themes, employ a common 12-Column grid layout system via the inclusion of various UI Frameworks.  Frameworks such as Foundation, Bootstrap, and Vuetify are just a few CSS + JavaScript libraries that are used to build reactive and responsive themes.

Google API Key Changes for WordPress Plugins

Updates to the Store Locator Plus WordPress plugin version 4.9.15, released today, includes patches to the Google API Key management.

Let’s start by letting users of our fully managed MySLP SaaS service know that you don’t have to worry about any of this.  You can skip this entire article.

Google API Keys

For our SLP WordPress plugin users there has been a notable change in the management of Google API Keys.

We now support a Geocoding Key and a Browser Key.    The Browser key is used to display the map and handle user-input addresses during a location search.  The Geocoding key is used on your WordPress server to geocoding locations you’ve entered via the Google API.

Google API Key Changes Coming June 11 2018

Store Locator Plus for WordPress requires the user of the plug-in to obtain their own Google Map API key as described in our Getting Started Guide.  

Google has revamped its Google Maps API developer platform. With the changes to the way Google is handling the API keys, this may be a good time to rethink the overall management of your location services.  The MySLP SaaS platform takes care of all that for you.  You only need  to  embed the JavaScript code that MySLP provides when you sign up.
