More Store Locator Plus add-on packs were updated this weekend. All of the third party add-on packs have bee updated to be fully compatible with Store Locator Plus 4.3, released last week, and WordPress 4.3 which was released on the same day. The updates will bring all features and functionality up-to-date for the latest changes to WordPress and Store Locator Plus.
An update to Store Locator Plus that addresses several reported bugs in SLP 4.3 is available in prerelease. 4.3.01 is expected to be a production version in the next 48-72 hours.
This release will fix the “admin white screen” on some installs using specific versions of PHP that are unable to do “look forward” class recognition in include files. It also fixes an issue with certain PHP environments that have strict double-colon constant definitions where users are mixing 4.2 version add-on packs with version 4.3 of the base plugin.
Premier Plugin version 4.3.01 is also coming out next week along with the SLP 4.3.01 patch. The latest iteration of the Premier plugin adds the ability to turn the “Streetview Man” on-and-off on the map interface. This feature requires SLP version 4.3.01.
Event Location Manager, another great add-on created by DeBaat, provides a new interface in the WordPress admin panel for creating time-based events. The event manager provides an interface to set the event name, start and end dates, an event category and status, a web link for the event, a description, and an event-specific icon complete with a set of new Event Location Manager icons.
The Event Location Manager settings provide an easy mechanism for adding event search capabilities to the locator map interface. Visitors to your site can search for events by name, select them from a drop down list of active events, filter by category or status.
Event categories and status codes are managed as a separate Event Location Manager specific taxonomies within WordPress, giving you standard category management and controls.
Premier members can download the new add-on as part of their standard subscription. All other Store Locator Plus customers can purchase Event Location Manager as a true WordPress add-on, no deactivation or uninstall of existing plugins is required, to add date-and-time based events to their locator feature set.
