You can change the built-in Google map view to any that Google has to offer “hybrid, road map, satellite (aerial), terrain” The settings are under Store Locator Plus/ Settings/Map ,scroll down to the section under Appearance and use the drop down under Map Type to change and then save changes.
If you are on MYSLP you will see the StoreLocatorPlus panel in the left admin panel, select settings/map.
Q. I seem to get a notification, every time someone leaves a comment on a topic. Can you undo that?
A. There are both forum-level and thread-level subscriptions, this video shows you how to stop email from either level, visit the SLP YouTube channel.
Check to make sure the SLP shortcode is not in quotes. WordPress changed how quotes can be implemented in shortcodes.
Use the Power add on categories feature to differentiate the locations. Once your locations have been assigned categories you can use the only_with_category shortcode attribute to filter the results for each map.
The most common issue is that there were updates in Store Locator Plus, WordPress, a non-Store Locator Plus plugin, or your theme that may be interacting with and breaking Store Locator Plus.
Update Your Store Locator Plus Add Ons
The first step should always be to check the Store Locator Plus versions page and make sure you are running the latest version of your Store Locator Plus plugins. There is often a free upgrade to a newer version of a Store Locator Plus add on that works with the current release of the base plugin.
When a location is added into your SLP data set, you will see a message “Store Locator Plus wants you to know:” and the output of the Latitude and Longitude where Google thinks the location is.
For Example, I added Sydney Opera House and no street address, just name, the city and the country Australia:
“Google thinks Sydney Australia is at lat: -33.8674869 long 151.2069902”
Whether doing a bulk import or adding locations by hand there are times when you will see a “location uncoded” or “cannot geocode” error message. This is always the result of an address that was sent to Google that cannot be processed in their address location system.
You activated the Store Locator Plus base plug-in and followed all the instructions but when you visit your locator page no map is there.
Here are some common reasons why the map will not appear:
Did you obtain a Google MAP API key?
As of June 22, 2016 Google requires all new domains, sites to obtain a key. There are many options based on how often your locations are queried. There are instructions in the SLP documentation site , in the SLP User Interface under INFO. See Getting Started Guide. More recently, 2018, Google has introduced security measures requiring SSL certification (HTTPS) for sites that may want the search to locate their customers location. (Location Sensor)
