There are five sections under the Settings/Results tab admin panel. Each section describes when and/or where the results will appear under your map.
Not all of the settings will be present if you are using the MySLP SaaS advance level plan or do not have add-ons for the basic WPSLP self managed plug-in.
You determine the Number of results you want to appear on the map and locator page as soon as the page loads when you have “Show locations at startup” checked. We recommend 50 for most sites unless you have the Premier add-on or Enterprise level plan (if using MYSLP) which allows less clutter on the map by virtue of cluster markers.
The next setting is the radius to search initially when “Show locations at startup” is checked. Leave empty to use the map radius default. Set to a large number to search everywhere.
And the third setting is : ” Number to show initially.” How many results do you want to show under the map? This is the part that populates the actual information regarding your locations (under or next to your map depending on the style) with the full address. website info, and other details unique to the location.
The base Store Locator Plus plugin and add ons are updated on a regular basis. Often the updates include security and bug fixes or fundamental changes that are designed to improve performance by reducing the memory and/or disk request load when your visitors are interacting with the map.
The most common reason your legacy add on stopped working is because it is no longer supported with the latest version of Store Locator Plus or vice versa
For the WordPress SLP stand alone do it yourself plug-in , the latest update to the Word Press base plugin normally appears in your WordPress site Plugin menu for auto update but until the plug-in is re-approved by WordPress you will need to download from our storefront and manually update the plug-in. (MySLP or SLP SaaS subscribers do not need to worry about having the latest versions, we do that for you automatically)
To check your version against what is currently available please see the site home page under Support/Versions
The WordPress Store Locator Plus base plug-in is not available in the WordPress plug-in directory at this time. Please visit our storefront to purchase the base plug-in and read the latest news for changes. If you purchased an add-on you will need to log into your WPSLP account and download it manually as well.
ALWAYS BACK-UP your site immediately before updating any Plug-ins.
(This section has been updated to reflect updates in SLP version 5.5.)
There are settings under the General tab for Admin , User Interface, (Server and Data tabs in earlier versions, now are included under the APP tab). This documentation has been updated to reflect the Google API changes for our WPSLP self managed plug-in customers. The tab “App” Map is where you will enter your own Google API keys. MySLP customers do not need to worry about that. We do it for them.
The Admin tab is where your SLP Premier subscription Accounts ID , Log Schedule Messages, and other info is located. There is also a Reset Manage Locations button available for use to reset the back end Manage Locations display page to the default view (10 locations per page view). This feature was previously only available with the free SLP Janitor Add-on.
Scroll to Premier Subscription Info Thank you for being a Premier Member. You will need to enter your User ID and Subscription ID via the Store Locator Plus General Settings Tab under the Admin section in order to get the latest updates to the Premier Plugin.
With built-in custom CSS rules now standard for most WordPress themes, version 5.4+ of Store Locator Plus® has dropped legacy CSS styles. Up to version 5.4 users could place a CSS file in the Store Locator Plus® plugin CSS directory and then use the Settings | View | Plugin Style to select that CSS file in place of the default “A Gallery Style”.
Adding The Style With Experience Add On
Copy the CSS from one of the legacy CSS stylesheets listed below an paste it into the Settings | View | Custom CSS box. This requires the WordPress Experience Add on.
Adding The Style With WP Themes
Custom CSS support is built into WordPress core and themes only need to tell WordPress they support that option to enable the functionality. Many modern themes now include this option. Go to Appearance | Customize | Additonal CSS and paste the CSS there.
Users of our MySLP SaaS offering don’t have to worry about this sort of thing. The built-in style gallery will suffice for most sites and those that need custom CSS can use the built-in CSS tools provided by platforms like Wix, Weebly, Squarespace, and more.
You can add custom CSS rules to WordPress to style your directories and location maps without having to wait for a custom Store Locator Plus® style or a theme that supports full CSS rules. WordPress has a built-in CSS customization tool that applies to all pages on the site.
You can use this custom CSS tool to do things like format the MySLP SaaS, or WPSLP plugin, directory listings.
How To Add Custom Rules
Login to your site as a site administrator.
Click on the Customize menu entry in the admin toolbar.
Click on Additional CSS in the sidebar.
Enter a fully qualified CSS rule.
