Store Locator Plus allows you to feature specific locations in your search results. This requires the Experience add on for WordPress or a Professional or Enterprise account for My Store Locator Plus. Some of the interface styles provided by the style gallery support featured location highlighting “out of the box”, such as the Default With Font Tweaks style.

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.

The lower the number, the higher the precedence for the map marker.
