File Type Is Not Permitted – WordPress 4.9.9 and 5.0.1

Recently updated to WordPress 4.9.9 or 5.0.1 and your CSV file imports for Store Locator Plus® stopped working? You can thank yet another “WordPress security feature” — also known as “backwards compatibility break”.  This “update” came with absolutely no warning to plugin developers.

WordPress 4.9.9 and 5.0.1 break Store Locator Plus® Imports and thousands of other plugins.

This does not affect our MySLP SaaS users thanks to our fully managed software stack, so they can rest easy and continue to import locations.

WordPress Store Locator Plus® Google API Key

If you are using the WordPress plugins for Store Locator Plus® you will need to manage your Google API keys on your own.   

Thankfully our MySLP SaaS service users don’t have to deal with this nonsense, a benefit of having us manage the locator software for them.  MySLP users login to their MySLP account, manage locations and map settings, and when they are ready copy the “generate Embed” code and past it into any page, post, or widget on their WordPress site — no plugins needed.

If you are using My Store Locator Plus® pat yourself on the back and take an extra 5 at coffee break today. You don’t need to read this article.

Fewer Geocode Requests With Store Locator Plus® 5

Our Store Locator Plus® 5.0 WordPress plugin is out today with some notable changes.   

What Store Locator Plus 5 does have is an improved map rendering process that reduces geocoding requests.    Since Google switched over to a 100% pay-as-you-go system for EVERYONE , no “free map views or geocoding” even for long-time users, we decided to focus on helping users reduce their monthly Google fees.     WPSLP 5 is the first release to work towards that goal.
