Store Locator Plus allows you to feature specific locations in your search results. This requires the Experience add on for WordPress or a Professional or Enterprise account for My Store Locator Plus. Some of the interface styles provided by the style gallery support featured location highlighting “out of the box”, such as the Default With Font Tweaks style.
Select A Style That Supports Featured Locations
The Default With Font Tweaks Style is one of the styles that highlights locations and is a good starting point for testing this functionality. You can adjust the layout and styling afterwards to meet your specific design requirements.
WPSLP – Select the Store Locator Plus entry in the side menu.
MYSLP – Select Advanced Options in the side menu.
Go to the Settings Tab and select the View subtab.
Click on the activate button on Default With Font Tweaks in the style gallery.
A check box under SLP/Experience/Results/Appearance titled “Use Dial Link for Phone” when checked makes the phone number in your locations results clickable to auto dial. This feature is available exclusively with the Experience Add-on (also with Premier)
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.
Hide Street View is available as part of the Premier plugin included with the Premier Subscription for Store Locator Plus. The Street View icon , also known as “pegman” appears on all Google Maps by default. The Premier plugin allows you to turn this off.
Turning Street View On or Off
Go to the Store Locator Plus Experience Map tab and look for Hide Street View in the Appearance group.
Cluster Map Markers is available as part of the Premier plugin included with the Premier Subscription for Store Locator Plus. Cluster Markers show a single map marker graphics when two or more markers are within close proximity to one-another on the current map view. As a user zooms in the clusters break apart to show individual markers. When the zoom out the individual location markers combine into a single marker graphic with the count of locations represented by the graphic shown in the center.
