For our WordPress users, next week will mark the two-year anniversary of our move away from our “Legacy Add Ons” to our newer Premier, Power, and Experience add ons. We made this change back in the fall of 2015 for many reasons including:
less plugin overhead on customer sites
fewer upgrade notices for customers
better interoperability between our add ons
better performance from the add ons
less overhead for development/testing/support
more time to focus on adding features and improving our service.
WordPress 4.8.2 was automatically updated on millions of websites worldwide yesterday. Some of those sites, including those using the Power add on for Store Locator Plus, lost functionality of some key features during the update. Today, our WordPress plugins Store Locator Plus 4.8.6 and Power Add On 4.8.6 have been released to address these issues.
