Store and Category Manager

Store and Category Manager interface is available if you have the  Power  Add-on installed (for WPSLP users) or have the MYSLP Professional level or higher. You will see a tab “Categories” in your Store Locator Plus User Interface.

Under side menu MYSLP/StoreLocatorPlus menu

Once you open the Category Tab  you can begin to add categories and slugs.  Set Markers and Icons per category (optional) if you want those to appear in place of map markers.  A Bulk action drop down to delete some or all categories is also available.

Settings/Search

You can choose to show the categories that you have created in a drop down menu as part of the search form.  There are additional category selector options available for WPSLP premier subscribers  or MYSLP Enterprise subscribers (example see Checkbox selector). You can add text as a label that will display  at the top of the categories drop down menu, or you can leave blank.  You can also add text for the category select box that will appear in front of the category drop down on the user interface.

Creating A List Of Location Pages [slp_pages]

This feature is available with an active Premier Subscription only.

Create a list of location pages, the Store Pages created by the Pages option of the Power add on, requires version 4.5 or later of the Power add on with the Pages option enabled.

Listing location pages is done by adding the [slp_pages] shortcode to your WordPress page or post.   Only published Store Pages are shown.   By default new pages created via the Manage Locations interface are created in ‘draft’ mode.

The Store Page [storepage] Shortcode

The [storepage] shortcode is used by the Pages and Power add ons to render live location data on a location (store) page.     The template is set under the Pages / Settings tab in the Initial Page Features group via the Page Template setting.

The [storepage] Shortcode

By default the [storepage] shortcode does not output any content.   You need to use one of the following attributes to generate location-specific output.
