The Store Locator Plus developer and team have been busy in the past months updating the base plugin and add-ons to version 4.5 or higher. These include updates to add-on packs, Experience, ProPack, Premier, Power (in pre-release), and some of the more popular third party add-ons (User Managed Locations, Extended Data Manager, Event Location Manager, Social Media Extender, Gravity Forms Locations and Integration) to work with SLP 4.5 and WordPress v 4.5 or higher. If an add-on has not been updated to 4.5, that indicates it is either considered a legacy pack and/or included in a new Add-on.
As mentioned in the developers previous blog, WP 4.5 updated jquery which revealed many errors with themes and plugins that were not using latest versions or blocked/forced jquery versions. SLP uses the recommended jquery version 1.12 or higher.
New feature: an Edit icon will appear in the [[slp]] results list on the front-end for only those locations the logged on user has access to. Clicking the Edit icon will lead to the manage page on the admin section so you would only need to allow the user access to that page. By adding the text “[slp_location uml_buttons]” to the results layout, (changes to layout is available as part of the Experience add-on) you can control the location where the Edit icon appears.
On a separate note, when Store Locator Plus released v 4.5.01 , a new set of issues were introduced on the sites using the Network Active Multisite for WP. Store Locator Plus version 4.5.05 fixed those issues as noted in the release notes and the video. This revealed how many sites were using the SLP add-ons but not purchasing for each site they were running for their customers. This was contrary to the rules of business licensing that had been requested from the start. Therefore, an active Premier Subscription is requested for any sites running network-activated Store Locator Plus with paid add ons. For further information see the below videos.
Added: a new feature to Reset (not to be confused with REST) your locations display under the General Admin tab without having to load Janitor to fix the _option_nojs admin locations per page.
Fixed: the “SLP did not send back a valid JSONP response” error message. This bug was discovered when a Premier customer had a combination of settings in the radii options under the experience/ search along with some other check boxes.
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.
