Question: I would like to use your WordPress plugin to add location searching to my site. I would like to be able to rank and even possibly remove locations from the search results. Also, each location offers different products of mine. So, if a user selects a product and a zip code I would like to show them locations that offer the product they are looking for ranked in order of my ranking system. I have many locations (10k +). Can you please let me know what addons I will need to accomplish my goals? I definitely need to be able to upload CSVs.
The Experience add-on for WordPress SLP or the Professional Plan for MySLP 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.
