The (User) Experience settings in Store Locator Plus determine how the front end, that part of the plugin your site visitors interact with, looks and behaves. The settings on the User Experience tab change how the plugin looks and acts across all of the locators you have on your site. Some of the attributes set here can be overridden via shortcode attributes.
Various add-on packs will extend the basic settings that are available in the base plugin. You can customize hundreds of settings on the user interface to create a customer user experience for the locator section of your site.
The Search Form panel is where you adjust the settings that impact the search form section of the Store Locator Plus user interface.
The Map panel contains the settings that change the look-and-feel as well as the behaviour of the map section of the Store Locator Plus user interface.
The Results panel changes the way results are displayed on the Store Locator Plus user interface.
