Featuring Locations – Top of Results and Highlighting

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.

Select A Style That Supports Featured Locations

The Default With Font Tweaks Style is one of the styles that highlights locations and is a good starting point for testing this functionality.  You can adjust the layout and styling afterwards to meet your specific design requirements.

WPSLP – Select the Store Locator Plus entry in the side menu.

MYSLP – Select Advanced Options in the side menu.

Go to the Experience Tab and select the View subtab.

Click on the activate button on Default With Font Tweaks in the style gallery.

Mark A Location As Featured

Go to the Locations tab and edit a location.

Scroll down to the Featured setting and check it.

Go To Your Locator Page

Open your locator and search for your locations.  The featured location should be at the top of the list as long as it is within your default search radius from your map center location.
