A new video that highlights how to change the locator style as we continue our MySLP Weebly example for the South Carolina Ice Cream Quest 2017 site has been posted. You can follow along with the sister article on the our SLP Documentation site. The content is also applicable to WordPress plugin users that have the Experience add on.
The next release of Store Locator Plus is wrapping up testing and will be released soon for WordPress Plugins and is on a fast track for release on the MySLP platform within 10 days.
We also clean up some bugs in this series. Most notably a bug in the Experience add on that only impacts the WordPress plugin users running version 4.7.10 of Experience (MySLP users are not impacted by this issue) that disabled multiple search and page load features provided by the Experience add on including order by featured, listing featured locations first, state and city filtering and their drop downs among other issues. Bugs were addressed for Power users with the import duplicates handler.
Caching of your site tends to create a superior user experience as pages are served to your site visitors more quickly. In the modern technological world of “NOW!”, where we expect our requests from technology to delivery immediately, anything that takes longer than a few seconds to deliver what the user asked for is considered slow, useless, or obsolete.
Caching of live WordPress sites is something that used to be a rare occurence. With more informative articles, better hosting companies, and the user community “leveling up” their technical expertise, caching of WordPress sites has become more commonplace than ever before. That is a good thing.
Many other web presence services and hosting companies have deployed caching for years. Some are more advanced than others with their deployment process. The better web presence platforms will manage flushing the cache for you.
If you are managing your own hosting and caching solutions here are some things we’ve encountered on our own WordPress sites and MySLP deployments.
