2016 , bye bye bye… Here’s to you 2017! : We are looking forward to a productive and prosperous year. Last of the year updates for the WordPress Store Locator Plus plug-in as well as updated versions for the featured Power, and Experience add-ons as well as new Premier functionality and features.
Before updating the add-ons, you will be required to update the base Store Locator Plus plugin to 4.7 or higher. Note: If you have bookmarks and/or “auto- form fill” to your WordPress Store Locator Plus account you will need to change the WP-SLP url to the new url .
You can review the WordPress Store Locator Plus change log here.

The moment you all have been waiting for is here. Updates to version 4.6 have been made to the core Store Locator Plus plug-in along with Power, Experience, and Premier.
Some of the new features and updates you will see in the core (base) plug in :
- Manage Locations now has fast delete on single location delete icon.
- Provides mechanism for add ons to serve per-admin-page specific JS.
- If there is a newer version of an active SLP add on it will be shown on the WP plugins page.
- Power Add On assignment of categories.
- Duplicates handling on location import.
- Smart/fast option saving for add on packs including Power Add On import options.
- Fix the admin form drop down menus.
- Eliminate the duplicate “are you sure you want to delete” dialogue boxes on bulk actions.
Power Add-on Users reported some glitches with version 4.5.12 imports. The duplicate handling updates has been fixed. Note: In order for the Duplicate Handling Update location to function, either the sl_id or the Contacts field Identifier MUST be present and match what is stored in the location data field. To see the sl_id number you can hover over to the left of the location name under manage locations. Exporting the locations file to a csv file will also show the sl_id. This id is assigned automatically when a user adds a location in SLP for the first time and is not the one you assign as an identifier with contact extender. The specific contact identifier field can be used instead of the sl_id and takes precedence.
I hope everyone is enjoying the balmy summer weather. The developer and author of Store Locator Plus has been very busy with updates in preparation for meeting his MYSLP team. I am sure he will have some interesting stories to tell when he gets back. He hasn’t been idle! While pond hopping he managed to revamp and publish Store locator Plus 4.5.10, which we hope provides better information on how to actually get that pesky Google API, browser , server console key or whatever they are calling it these days, into the right location in the SLP General settings. Thanks to a user question, apparently the linked instructions under the SLP INFO tab may not have been as user friendly as hoped.
Other updates were to the Power Add-on and Premier Add-on. Premier 4.5.10 was released while the author was mid flight somewhere over the Atlantic.
The Power Add-on and Premier Add-on were not playing nice together when it came to icons and map markers assigned to the Category Manager and settings. Thanks to a recent Premier Subscriber for revealing the mismatching icons issue and for patiently working with SLP while it was resolved
Stay tuned for a future update; I am hoping this will help us all keep our versions straight,( this blogger included who has told people to update to a non-existent version of an add-on, causing mayhem and confusion in her wake) has been requested from numerous loyal customers. Yes, you asked for it , he heard you, and coming to your account dashboard in the not too distant future, being able to view the version add-on that is available to you under your account downloads.
In the meantime, please check your versions under the Support tab on the home page.
