Store Locator Plus 13-Dec-2014 Status Report

CSA Slack Banner

Until I figure out a better way to get frequent update reports out of the new Slack Channel into a WordPress post (yes, it can be done with a plugin and an API but I’m sort of busy with a bazillion Store Locator Plus updates at the moment) I’m doing it manually. Here is the past couple of days of work.

Can you post a KML file example. That capability is not built-in but could be added to the Pro Pack on a future build if the data is easy to parse.

Just put SLP 4.2.18 into prerelease. Turns out a WP 4.0.X patch broke the drop down menu processors due to a change in how pages render single quotes. So much for WP being fully backward compatible. A lot of plugins have broken including CVG, my video manager on the CSA site!

Enhanced Search allows for a state drop down selector that can be an input box or drop down selector.

Yes the selector box shows up and I am able to select the categories. But after clicking filter the results still show both categories.

Under User Experience / Results set your "show tags in output" to something other than hidden. For backwards compatibility is defaults to "hidden".

Finally - Pro Pack immediate CSV imports works when a scheduled import is present. What a PAIN.

Now to make some more robust testing for SLP 4.2.18 and PRO 4.2.03 , re-run tests on both, release SLP 4.2.18, and publish both products by Monday. Fingers crossed!
