The Locations panel in Store Locator Plus is where you add, manage, edit and/or delete locations.
Actions and Filters
Under the Manage Locations panel there are drop down fields and filters that can be applied to display the pagination interface. If you have a large number of locations, bulk actions can be a very useful tool. If you have more locations than can fit on the display, you can set the display filter to show more locations. You may also use filters to display and manage non – geocoded locations, or show locations with certain properties. The display can be adjusted to suit your needs but configuration constraints and/or server constraints may effect your outcome.
Not all Bulk actions will appear if you have only the base plugin installed. Bulk action filters for removing Tags, performing Exports, geocoding all uncoded, and bulk categorize certain locations will be shown if you have the WPSLP Power add-on or Power level Plan for MySLP
The default number of locations that will be displayed on the admin user Interface is 10. Selecting a large number to display can be useful to view or manage but if your server capacity cannot handle it or changes and you go back to manage locations months or years later and try to access your locations panel, you may see no locations panel. If you see the wheels churning on your computer with no results this could be the reason. If you are not sure of the capabilities of your server, browser and various other factors that effect memory, and inhibit loading and displaying fields, err on the side of caution and set the Filter Display locations back to a manageable size before leaving the panel. If you are migrating servers from a “heavy duty” server to a less robust server, or if your memory becomes an issue you will need to reset the display to a manageable number. If you do not take this precaution , the only way to reset the display field is by using Janitor. See Troubleshooting for more info.
Bulk Actions features a drop down selector that provides a tool to do multiple actions depending on the SLP Add-ons that you have installed and activated. The standard base plug-in has one bulk action, delete permanently. This will delete those locations that are checked.
Power /Power allows you to import,export csv files. With Power you will see the export filter under bulk actions
The Power add-on for WPSLP or the MySLP/Power plan is a powerful tool that allows you to Import or Export (in the Drop down menu under Bulk Actions) the location files to a CSV FILE format, as well as manage or remove tags (if any) associated with any location.
The Experience add-on for WPSLP or MySLP/ Professional allows for additional bulk action options such as Feature Location, Stop Featuring Location.
