    Hi Cici

    Sorry – this must be somewhere obvious but I cannot find it.

    My map has a PINK bubble that identifies the centre of a search
    https://2018.unitedayurveda.com/find-a-member/search

    Where can change that PINK bubble do a different marker?

    Thank you

    I cannot see what you mean, that link goes to a suspended account. Are you referring to the home marker?  Under MAP.  You can actually select the home marker to be blank  it is usually the second icon under map marker.

    Sorry Cici

    We’re now live. 🙂

    So I have suspended the https://2018.unitedayurveda.com site in order to find any broken internal links that are using that url.

    The site is now on https://apa.uk.com/

    I do have Hide Home Marker checked but the pink bubble still appears. And no bubble selection box where I might change it on my Settings > Map page that is described in this doc.

    https://docs.storelocatorplus.com/blog/map-panel-settings/
    I wonder if this docs page needs an update?

    I will need the exact url where the locator and map info “pink” bubble is showing.

    Nothing has really changed with Map settings for quite some time. Also could you provide me with the Plugin environment, i.e versions so I can check against my site.

    Thanks for you patience Cici

    This is my search page.
    https://apa.uk.com/find-a-member/search

    Search on a postcode like SW1.

    I’ve attached a screen shot showing the pink bubble that I’d like to change (as it is too similar to my category locations).

    What have you selected under Map markers for settings? Do you have a home marker selected , it appears that you have identified that marker as being the visitors location but it is not actually their location but   is actually the location of the search returned address.

    a

    are you using the filter by tag feature by any chance?

    thanks for providing the site url that helps a lot

    Hi Cici

    it appears that you have identified that marker as being the visitors location but it is not actually their location but is actually the location of the search returned address.

    Yes I understand that it might not be where they ‘really’ are at the time of the search. But thought ‘Your Location’ was the ‘clearest’ way to explain that it was there ‘search location’. If only I could change the pink bubble marker to a different shaped marker the issue might be resolved. 🙂

    I’ve attached a screenshot of my settings. Active Marker Icon happens to be set to a black bubble. I have no idea where/when the black bubble displays. Pretty confusing.

    are you using the filter by tag feature by any chance?

    I’m not using a tag filter.

    BTW I’ve discovered I’m using ‘Two Left’ Locator style.

    The active marker icon

    is not the same as the center location.  ” The results interaction set of features provides a variety of visual cues on the location map to indicate the location a user has clicked  when viewing a list of locations., providing a variety of additional options beyond the standard Info Bubble that Store Locator Plus displays when a location is clicked.”

    Inspect your site and that element and it is showing it is what you have selected as an icon for the “your location”   https://apa.uk.com/wp-content/plugins/store-locator-le/images/icons/bulb_AMP.png

     

    Most likely then it is your location marker which is set under the Settings.MAP

    These are the only places that use map markers, either under the MAP settings or category settings and now with premier as you mention under the results interaction setting which I am not sure you need or intended to use.

    The results interaction set of features provides a variety of visual cues on the location map to indicate the location a user has clicked when viewing a list of locations., providing a variety of additional options beyond the standard Info Bubble that Store Locator Plus displays when a location is clicked.

    If I click a bubble on my map the location details pop up which is just fine. No other visual clues that I see – but that’s fine.

    Most likely then it is your location marker which is set under the Settings.MAP

    Can’t find my location maker setting anywhere on Settings > Map Cici
    Are there any docs on where to set the location marker?

    Thanks

    ? You do not have a section under Settings/Map/ and a subsection at the bottom (scroll down using inside slide bar to get to the very bottom of the page)  the whole last section is labeled   MARKERS in bold . That is where you set the two markers Home and location. You have the latest versions of the plugin correct? The label after home marker the next one is location marker. not sure if it was called something else before but that is what it is called on my site.  If you do not have a section called Markers in the back end something may be interfering with SLP.

    Note: Another section that talks about the map markers

    There is a video for custom map markers it is more then 2 years old and the label in front of the field I mentioned was called location under  Markers.

    On the video just be aware that when lance explains and shows  the back end of SLP and where to add the marker, the heading called “experience” is now  displayed in the back end  as “Settings”. That verbiage was changed so as not to confuse the experience add-on with what was the end users experience that can be adjusted via settings. I have replaced most screen shots with newer verbiage but we are not shooting videos again for those.

    here is the page for custom map markers with the video (you probably do not need the video but it does show where under the Map settings tab you have the locations marker settings)  as mentioned, if you do not have a whole section called  markers you have something else going on with your site , (only time I recall something like that being reported was  if migrated WP then there are SLP tables missing.)  🙁
