Pro Pack and Enhanced Map Updates Released

SLP4 Banner

Two Store Locator Plus add-on packs have passed testing and were released to the general public today.

Pro Pack is now available with several updates to the location export feature including better UTF-8 support and pre-export filters to allow for CSV exports of subsets of your locations.

Enhanced Map has been updated with a new feature that allows site administrators to decide whether the user interface should display a standard Google map, a starting image, or nothing other than the search form when the locator page is first rendered. When a user performs a location search the map will appear unless the map has been disabled with a SLP Theme or by turning off the map feature globally.

Several minor bug fixes are included in both add-on packs. Details from the readme file are noted below.

Enhanced Maps for Store Locator Plus Nearing Release

Enhanced Map Banner

Enhanced Map version 4.1.01 is now in available to Premier Members via the download page.   Testing is underway with final release schedule for later this week.

This version of Enhanced Maps brings a new feature to the maps interface.   You can now elect to start the location search page showing the Google Map (current default mode), a starting image that is shown until a user performs a location search, and hiding the map until the user performs a location search.    If you are are using starting images you may need to update this setting under the User Experience in the map panel.

Please note that not all of the SLP Theme files have been updated to the new Sass-based CSS management system.   If you are using an SLP Theme with “Hide Until Search” selected and it is not hiding the map on initial page display, please let me know.
