The Experience Add On allows you to custom tailor the look and feel of the Store Locator Plus plugin on your site. To accomplish this the plugin uses a combination of HTML and special shortcodes. These are set via the Experience tab of the plugin and is broken into 3 main areas.
A check box under SLP/Experience/Results/Appearance titled “Use Dial Link for Phone” when checked makes the phone number in your locations results clickable to auto dial. This feature is available exclusively with the Experience Add-on (also with Premier)
A. Category ranking is a feature when you are using the Power Add-on and the category manager. The rank is used to sort the categories which will affect the map marker that is used when a location has been assigned more than one category. Following the page ranking paradigm set by WordPress, the rank field is a simple numeric weighting for the categories. This extended data attribute for categories makes it easy to re-arrange the “weight” of categories for map marker selection without mangling category slugs. The lower the number, the higher the precedence for the map marker.
If a site visitor types and unfamiliar keyword or address that is not in your locations data fields or Google Maps returns a map that is not where your site visitor wants to be, you can provide instructions to help them narrow down the selection and return the correct location.

The Base Plugin default is to show the order of the results below your map by distance with closest to the searched address first. With either the Experience Add-on or the Premier Add-on the following order by options to display the results will be shown under your Experience/Results/Panel
Closest list the closest to the search address or center of the map (this is the default)
A..Z- alphabetical sort of locations.alphabetical sort of locations
Random- random order of locations, changes on each search
Store and Category Manager interface is available if you have the Power Add-on installed. You will see a tab “Categories” in your Store Locator Plus User Interface.
Note: if you do not have Power add-on activated, the basic set up and tab/ panel is seen as Tagalong. Tagalong is a Legacy add-on that has now been included in Power Add-on for future Store Locator Plus versions published after June 2016
You can choose to show the categories that you have created in a drop down menu as part of the search form. You can add text as a label that will display at the top of the categories drop down menu, or you can leave blank. You can also add text for the category select box hat will appear in front of the category drop down on the user interface.
