By default the pages list is wrapped in a div with class slp_pages_list.
Each list entry within is then inside a div with the slp_page location_details class.
The Experience add-on (if you have a WordPress SLP Premier subscription you may download and activate the Experience add-on included with your subscription) for WordPress SLP or the Professional level Plan for MySLP SaaS provides a “search by city”, “search by state”, and “search by country” feature. This search form element, when enabled, will build a drop down list based on the locations in your database. This is meant to provide a hint to the user where your locations are.
The base legacy plug-in is a simple “address input” feature. When the user clicks the search button it looks for locations closest to that location based on your other search form settings. If your default radius is 100 miles and the user selects the state of Texas, the base plug-in will search for all locations within 100 miles of Google’s estimated “center of Texas”. With the Experience add-on you can select certain settings to redirect the search selector and provide other options to direct or assist your site visitor.
The Horizontal or Vertical Checkbox Category Selector feature is available for WPSLP Premier or MySLP Enterprise level subscription customers. The checkbox works with an “OR” selection based on the Parent category. With Premier or Enterprise you will see additional category selectors under the Settings/Search/Category section. For example : If you check the  red and  blue boxes on the category selector it will show any location in the red OR blue category.
The locations loading indicator shows your visitors that the server is working on returning a list of locations. This feature was introduced in Store Locator Plus Premier Plugin version 4.9.11.
The locations loading indicator is enabled by selecting the “Loading Indicator” under Store Locator Plus | Store Locator Plus > Results > Appearance.
The default setting provided by Store Locator Plus.
A circular loading indicator.
Choose the color palette for the loading indicator.
Choose where you want the loading indicator to appear while the search is underway. It will replace the locator elements in the map, search, or results box until the locations are loaded.
Note: IMPORT requires Power add-on for the stand alone WPSLP plugin or if you are using MYSLP SaaS, the Professional level or higher plan.
When creating a CSV import file make sure the zip / postal code column is properly formatted as text so you do not lose leading zeros.
The column header for postal/zip codes is zip or sl_zip.
In the United States many northeastern postal codes start with zero. Many sheets, Microsoft Excel in particular, LOVE to leave off the leading zero if you enter a zip code as 03907 and save as CSV.
In Excel, and many other apps, you can force a field where you are typing in numbers to be text by starting your entry with an apostrophe (‘). Type ‘03907 when entering the data NOT 03907.
A good test to see if this is happening to you, open your CSV file in Google Sheets and see what it looks like. Does it look like the sheet above missing a zero and right aligned?
Another indicator that this column is set to a numeric type and not an text type is the data is on the RIGHT SIDE of the cell. Text is left-justified (like sl_state) and numbers are right-justified.
These instructions are for MySLP users only.
MySLP is a monthly subscription service that allows you to deploy a locator map on ANY platform including WordPress. It is a managed service where we handle the hosting of the locations, settings, and map software. We keep the software updated so you don’t have to worry about it.
These instructions DO NOT APPLY to the stand alone, self managed WordPress plugin(s).
For our buy-it-and-own-it solution you will want to look at the WPSLP plugins instead of this page.
If you are NOT using My Store Locator Plus® you should think about it.

You’ve already added your locations and generated your embed code per the instructions in our Getting Started post. Now you are ready to deploy on your WordPress site.
Here we are going to deploy the script in a new page on our site.
My Store Locator Plus can be deployed on any website technology that can publish basic HTML pages. The functionality of the service depends more on the browser technology used by your site visitors than your web stack.
The most basic deployment is a local HTML file that is opened by your web browser. Your desktop or laptop and even some mobile devices will allow you to create a basic HTML file on your device. You can then open this file using that device’s web browser.
Login to your MySLP Account shown in our home page tab:
Add A Location
The initial login should bring you to the Locations tab on the MySLP page.
Go to the Store Locator Plus side menu to begin adding Locations or (with Professional Plan or higher) Import locations
Click the Add Location button to add a new location.
When a user is typing in an address on the address search box on the locator they will be shown a list of suggestions based on what address Google thinks they are asking for. It requires 3 characters or more to be entered before it shows a suggestion.
