The following settings are available to manage functionality for both WPSLP stand alone plug-in and MySLP SaaS managed service..
- Center Map: This is where you enter an address, or a state, or a location or even a specific latitude and longitude to be displayed as the initial focus for the Map. If nothing is entered in this box , the default will be the center of the country of the Map domain selected. For example if you have selected the United States Google map domain then the center of your map will be somewhere in Kansas.
- Center Latitude Fallback: Center Longitude Fallback: These are the latitude/longitude settings that will be called if the Google server is “busy” or offline and not able to geocode or “call” to load your locations. If you reset to blank it will fill in with the Center latitude/longitude of the map domain you have chosen. You can have a different Lat/long fallback then your map domain or the center map if you so choose. If you do not add anything it will automatically fill with one of the two options described. An image of your fallback will also be displayed (version 4.9+)
