Several changes have made it into the October 2018 release of My Store Locator Plus®. The updates include features users of the mapping and directory service have been asking for since the start of the summer.
Faster map loads
Users that generate embed codes for their Weebly, Wix, Squarespace or other sites will notice a small change to the code — we now serve up a minified JavasScript snippet. The compressed code will load faster and take up less memory on your site. Mobile users visiting your site will like that.
Users that have already embedded the map may want to grab the new embed code by logging into MySLP and copying the code from Generate Embed.
Store Locator Plus updates are ready to roll out for May 2017. The updates will first come to the WordPress plugins. MySLP will be updated in the next 3-4 weeks pending testing. Here is what is coming in this series of updates.
Various updates have been made to allow the Style Gallery to better support additional user experience modifiers available in the Experience and Premier Add On packs. For example the base plugin now has a Search Form Styles selection that provides access to built-in jQuery styling that makes things like drop down menus and autocomplete features look a little nicer.
The Default style in the Style Gallery has been updated. You do not need to update the base plugin to take advantage of this update. If you are already using the Default style select a different style from the Settings / View tab in Store Locator Plus (start with Advaned Options in MySLP) and switch it back to Default to pull the new style from the Style Gallery server. If you have SLP 4.7.10 it will take advantage of some new HTML attributes to better style the search form layout, especially when dropping labels in front of some input fields on the locator.
