Radius Behavior

Store Locator Plus 4.5.08 adds Radius Behavior as primary option in the base plugin. The Experience and Premier Add On packs extend the functionality beyond the basic “Always Use” setting.  This setting impacts how the radius selector is employed and how locations are filtered before being displayed to the user.

The initial map radius is set under the Experience / Results tab Initial Startup panel.

The radius selection options presented to the user in the drop down menu is set under the Experience / Search tab in the Search Features panel.
