Store Locator Plus, one of the most popular location management services for WordPress, has a new add-on pack that extends the functionality of the base plugin. Social Media Extender, created by DeBaat, brings social media icons and links to your locations. Add Twitter, Facebook, or any other social media site to your location listings with ease.
Social Media Extender
Social Media Extender makes it easy to add social media links to the Store Locator Plus locations. It is a two-part system that includes a “social media manager” that allows you to add a variety of social media sites. It starts pre-loaded with Facebook and Twitter as the two base social platforms. The other part of the system is the location editor interface which allows location-specific URLs to be added so each location can link to its own social media page.
Social Media Extender is now available to the general public.

A product page and documentation page will be published on this site over the next 24-48 hours.
We are working on a minor patch and the documentation. As soon as we finish both, hopefully within 48 hours or less, the new Social Media Extender will be available to the general public. You can get a prerelease copy via the Downloads page.
This is still in development. It fixes the extended data bug, however more work is underway on feature updates and patches for other bugs that have been reported. It appears to be stable but is not the final release.
This has been tested several times and is stable. The data extension patch was made tonight which warrants another full test run. Testing will happen tomorrow along with several client site reviews. If all goes well this should be the final production release launched to the public later this week.
This has the data extension patch and has been sent to the author for final updates and approval. Once the version number is updated and his patches are in place it will be tested and released. A public release is expected later this week.
