Google Map Domains supported in SLP

Google Map Domains

The following countries are currently supported in the Store Locator Plus plugin.  These countries determine the default center starting point for location searches and determine which Google locations engine is used when searching for an address.   This influences, but does not restrict, which results are returned.   Regardless of what country you select as the default, any location in your location database can be returned by the search regardless of the country in which that location resides. This does not effect the zip codes necessarily. Some country postal codes are  unique, others are not.

Map Panel Settings

SLP plugin/ Settings /Map  selections will determine the  Map layout , display, and focus of the map. The settings contained in the map panel will change the functionality (map domain, zoom) and appearance of the map and provides an array of  selections to choose from such as, Google Map domains,language and additional functionality.   If you need additional functionality or Map Layout , you may wish to review the Experience for WPSLP or Professional for MySLP or Premier/Enterprise options). Note that your  Plug-in style selection will also impact how the map is displayed on your site.Plugin styles can be selected under Settings/View

The following settings are available to manage functionality for both WPSLP stand alone plug-in and MySLP SaaS managed service..

At Startup

  • 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.

    Basic Map settings without add-on
  • 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+)
