Can the stores be categorized by more than one taxonomy? Not multiple tags in a single taxonomy, but multiple tags from multiple taxonomies?
A: Stores only have one categorization class – the store page taxonomy.
However, WordPress Taxonomies are hierarchical. Therefore, you are able to assign all the attributes you need to your locations and use the parents of the branches to drive the user experience. The Power add-on has several UX components such as “drill down” menus that allow users to select a specific category by selecting a parent first then a child.
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.
Once you open the Category Tab you can begin to add categories and slugs or edit existing. 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 at the top of the category box.
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.

The ability to categorize your locations using the WordPress category (taxonomy) system. The Categories Manager (Formerly known as Tagalong) is part of the Power Add-on for WPSLP self managed customers, and available for the MYSLP Professional or higher plans) It builds on the Store Locator Plus store_page taxonomy that is also used with the Pages portion of the Power Add-on (for WPSLP stand alone). Build a “simple flat list” of categories or a hierarchical (parent/child) category structure. Once you’ve categorized locations you will find other added benefits on the user interface.
