Store Locator Plus 4.9.7 “map attributes” update was released today for our WordPress users. The update is still in testing for MySLP users — some of the patches in this release are a direct result of the testing before integrating into our managed service. The updated release will be on the MySLP platform soon but will have limited impact on those users.
The [slplus] processor in the core plugin has been updated to allow more map attributes to be set. This update allows ALL options that have been migrated to the new Smart Options architecture (80% of all SLP settings at this point) to be used as an attribute. This greatly improves the ability to create custom maps on a per-page basis with settings that vary from the general “system wide” settings that come from the Store Locator Plus > Settings tab.
In preparation for feature updates to our Premier (checkbox category selectors anyone?), Power, and Experience add ons, the free Store Locator Plus base plugin was updated to version 4.8.4 today. All of the updates including the premier add on features will be rolled out in MySLP 17.10 to our monthly service users later this month.
Back to the Store Locator Plus WordPress plugin update for those that like to have full control and manage their own software and websites…
The following updates have been made in Store Locator Plus 4.8.4:
Fix apostrophe in description on editor.
Fix admin page detector. Fixes category icon/marker selector for the Power Add On.
Fix the admin pages related settings highlight.
Clean up some of the admin locations interface elements. Use jQuery base dialogues from Theme Roller.
Simplified object loader to reduce overhead.
Minor performance improvement on admin page saves.
Directory Builder no longer supported, it is part of the Power Add On.
A half-dozen old-school style map markers (pin_red, marker, icon_entertainment, bubble_person, box_teal_airport, box_gray_house, arrow) have been removed. They can be added to WP media manager or a newer style selected in its place.
