Store Pages v3.9 Released

Charleston SC, February 21st 2013 –  Charleston Software Associates released a completely re-constructed version of the Store Pages product this afternoon.   In conjunction with the release of Store Locator Plus version 3.9, the new Store Pages version 3.9 product takes advantages of new internal components to provide a better SEO management experience for Store Locator Plus users.     Store Pages is a premium add-on pack available for the free Store Locator Plus location management system.   Pricing for the 3.9 release is set at $45.    Existing licensed users of prior versions can request a free upgrade to the Store Pages 3.9 release.

The new version of Store Pages creates several oft-requested features.   Custom page addresses and the ability to manipulate the generated page formats are two of the biggest additions to the new release.   Several minor features have also been added to the update.

Site administrators will now have the ability to customize the URL where their store pages will be rendered, adding the SEO impact of the plugin.   The default /store-page/store-name web address can now be modified to better fit the site.  For example a list of doctor offices can now read /doctor/location-name .

Store Pages also includes a new page template engine that offers live dynamic data elements.   Store Pages now read the store location database in real-time.  This is a departure from prior releases where a page would need to be re-created every time location data was updated.  The same template editor feature also allows the site administrator to change the layout of the generated page to suite their tastes.   A completely free-form HTML syntax with data placeholders, in the form of WordPress standard shortcodes, allows the site administrator to build the page exactly as they want to see it including embedding maps, directions, images or other site specific data.

You can learn what is new via the SLP 3.9 Release Notes page.
