Legacy Third Party Add-Ons Deactivation

This report does not impact users of the My Store Locator Plus managed locator service.

The WP Store Locator Plus  version release 4.9.15 update will throw fatal errors with third party add-ons if you are using DeBaat User Managed locations (UML)  or DeBaat Social Media Extender (SME).  We are working on the Store Locator Plus 4.9.16 release to prevent the “white screen” and auto-deactivate the outdated add-ons.

Resolving SLP 4.9.15 White Screen

This issue only seems to impact third-party add ons including Social Media Extender and User Managed Locations.  It MAY impact Gravity Forms add ons as well.

To resolve this issue you need to determine how important those add-ons are to you.

Payment Updates For Managed Locator Service

My Store Locator Plus was updated over the weekend to update payment processing.   This does not affect billing on existing active accounts and is not related to the WordPress plugins.

Renewing Expired Accounts

For accounts that were canceled within 30 days, whether by choice or because a credit card payment could not be processed, the renew option is back online.

The option to renew a recently-expired accounts had been offline for the past 60 days due to a change in the programming interface at our payment processor.    With the changes to the interface all renewed MySLP subscriptions will have a new subscription number.  This will not impact your MySLP functionality but for those that keep track of transactions at Stripe (our payment processor) you will note two different subscriptions if you choose to renew your account.

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.
