    We have set the map to maps.google.com.au

    Center Map At: Australia

    When tried to do a zip search “3101” or other zip codes, the search result opens a U.S. map. How can we add a notice that if there is no store found it will give a notice?

    Please refer to the posting guidelines and provide plugin environment.

     

    There are  features  available with experience add-on you can add shortcodes or append Australia or discrete search or auto complete

    Hi,

    The search feature however is not working properly, it does not search by postal code and also it doesn’t show the no active store location message.

    I have no idea what exactly you mean but you have errors and warnings and it is stopping the GET function>

    Hi,

    The search feature for the plugin is not working to search listed locations, it’s just working as a plain Google map where you can try to search any place and it will return with Google maps search results.

    Does it have to work that way? In the settings we can set an error message when the search did not get any locations within the added places but it is not working.

    We also have it installed in 2 other sites we have and had the same issue.

    When you try to search “India” it will return with the map of India (See Screenshot http://prntscr.com/m8efoh)

    Unfortunately Google determines  the results,  it doesnt always just search by using the . map domain in SLP) That is not always the case. (Our News article from developer about this)

     Additional info on how the  Search works

    If you have the Experience add-on or Premier subscription you can influence the search and  add the shortcode to append AU or have discrete search .  with Premier we have added search enhancements as a work around , i.e show country guesses etc .

    We have seen this issue in the past with Google searches, especially for   Australia, instead of using the Google AU search engine, Google was using  “international” . The map domain influences the map search but does not restrict it.  MYSLP has data search engine to work around Googles inaccuracies. Many of our WPSLP customers find MYSLP to be a better work around
