2016 , bye bye bye… Here’s to you 2017! : We are looking forward to a productive and prosperous year. Last of the year updates for the WordPress Store Locator Plus plug-in as well as updated versions for the featured Power, and Experience add-ons as well as new Premier functionality and features.
Before updating the add-ons, you will be required to update the base Store Locator Plus plugin to 4.7 or higher. Note: If you have bookmarks and/or “auto- form fill” to your WordPress Store Locator Plus account you will need to change the WP-SLP url to the new url .
You can review the WordPress Store Locator Plus change log here.
Store Locator Plus version 4.6.4 fixed the zoom settings, the plug-in tabs “save changes” and the back-end UI.
The change in the back end user interface will not be noticeable to most users. The naming of sections and tabs and settings now will use programmatic slugs instead of the plain text names. This allows the settings translations in different languages to remain intact even if language files have not been updated. This means future updates to Store Locator Plus, Power, Experience, and Premier add-ons will no longer lose their settings tabs. Another behind the scenes development is populating the plug-in and add-ons with “smart options” settings. To learn more please watch the developer’s brief You Tube.
