[slp_directory] Shortcode

The [slp_directory] shortcode is used to place a directory listing on a page or post.    There are two main modes of operation for the shortcode which is determined but the listing style selected.   The list style is determined via the style attribute. The general layout of the Landing Page listings is based on the Results Layout that is set for the base plugin.

The two modes are “list mode” and “landing page” mode.  These modes are described below.

Shortcodes for StoreLocatorPlus and Add-ons

[slplus] is the primary shortcode used within WordPress sites to display the Store Locator Plus map and location search interface. Many other attributes can be found within the plugin and add-ons.

A shortcode is a special label inside of square brackets that is used within WordPress pages and posts to display the output from a plugin. You place a shortcode within the text of your page or post and the plugin will “do it’s magic”.

Note: Shortcode attributes WILL NOT WORK if Force Load JavaScript is turned on under Store Locator Plus General Settings. Try turning it off before using attributes. If Store Locator Plus won’t load when you turn Force Load JavaScript off, get a different WordPress Theme that fully implements WordPress code standards.

Note: As of  WordPress Plugin API update 4.2.3 effects shortcodes with filtered styles which will not be recognized when stored between quotes.

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.

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

The Store Locator Plus shortcodes only work within the bubble layout. These are not generic WordPress shortcodes.
All of the bubble layout shortcodes follow this syntax:
