Search Address Auto-complete setting

Feature to have the address to auto-complete the zip code is available only with Premier or the Experience add-on

When 2 or more characters are typed in the address input box,  input suggestions based on location data will appear.

  • None (default) – do not suggest address input.
  • Zipcode – suggest matching zip codes.

If the formatting of the autocomplete is not  the way you would like it to appear, reset the Search Form Style under appearance layout.

Locator Styling determines how the auto-complete drop down box will appear on your page.

Map display options

Map Display

The Experience add-on for the WP Store Locator Plus or the MySLP/Professional Plan  allows you to customize the way your Map  is displayed and behaves.

With the WPSLP Experience add-on installed and activated  go to Settings/Map.

  • Show Map (default)
  • Hide map until search
  • Image until search
  • Do not autozoom


Additional options  are available to change your  Map layout and appearance    with the WPSLP Experience Add-on.   If you do not have the Add-on or a corresponding MySLP plan,  the  optional settings will  NOT appear.   (Note: There is a sidebar menu with MySLP/Professional under Advanced Options. See Adjust Locator styling for more information)

The additional options with the above mentioned plans or add-ons allows you to  hide the map , change the map layout, change the map bubble display, and/or  hide the map info bubble.  The Plugin Style under View (WPSLP) may supersede these settings. Choose one that  will compliment your theme or utilizes the add-on features available to you.

Q. What is the difference between a shortcode and locator layout settings?

Bubble Layout

The bubble layout setting allows you to change the content and layout of the popup information bubble that appears when someone clicks a map marker or in the results below the map.
