A. If you see the word Experience in the SLP back end you are not using the latest version of SLP. As of version 4.7.9 the menu tab formerly named “Experience” is now named Settings in Store Locator Plus . This change was made because of the confusion people had with the name in the menu and the Experience add-on. The settings under this tab determine how the front end, that part of the plugin your site visitors interact with, looks and behaves. The settings under this tab change how the plugin appears to the site visitor and what functionality is available to the site visitor. Some of the attributes set here can be overridden via shortcode attributes with the Experience Add-on.
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.
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 which allows less clutter by virtue of cluster markers.
The next setting is the radius to search initially if :Show locations at startup” is checked. Leave empty to use the map radius default. Set to a large number to search everywhere.
How SLP Search Works
Store Locator Plus searching can operate in radius or discrete search mode. The default mode is radius based and is the premise behind much of the operational aspects of the Store Locator Plus plugin. Additional search features and settings can be obtained through the Experience Add-on suite and/or the Premier Subscription (see below).
