When searching for a location with a Canadian postal code that contains a space, the store locator returns no results every time (ex. M1K 1K1). If I remove the space, or search by city and province, it works fine (ex. M1K1K1). Can you please update the plugin to account for postal codes with a space as this can be very confusing from a user perspective.January 18, 2019 at 4:39 PM #58415
Google has changed (broken) their address lookup service that nearly every map services provider uses . The developer is working on a way to fix or surpass google with his MYSLP platform. My Store Locator Plus® searches additional databases. read below article
It appears another Google customer also reported to Google Support specifically about Canadian zip codes. And Google has assigned in support. We believe that now that Google is charging for the use of their Maps APIs and geocoding a lot more people have started reporting. if you look under issues you will see a ton of issues reported to Google and quite a few in apst month.January 19, 2019 at 1:36 PM #58420
The developer has been looking into the ADDRESS SEARCH ISSUE when spaces present
what version of WP are you on? It seems there was a change in WP that changed the way spaces were applied creating an issue in SLP 5.0.1 — may have been introduced with WordPress 5.0 and the 4.9.9 patches… but not sure…
But it impacts any address a user types in with extra spaces on the map address lookukp.
A new version of SLP 5.0.3 should fix the spaces look up. I just updated on my test site and tested it and returned the correct location I had added as a test:
Scarborough, ON M1K 5J7, Canada
