      Sounds awsome. Hope it works with Australian postal codes :)

    13. Moyo says:

      Hey Jake — perfect timing for your question…

      We just added localization capabilities to the plugin for about 20+ countries in the past few days — Australia included.

    14. Tony says:

      This sounds EXACTLY what i’m looking for!! When will this be ready? Thanks so much !!!

    15. admin says:

      Great to hear Tony.

      It will be ready sometime between Nov. 27, 2008 (Thanksgiving) and Dec. 1st, 2008

      Updates will be posted soon.

    16. paul says:

      Waiting with great anticipation…

    17. admin says:

      … Don’t worry, we’re very near the end. We won’t keep you all waiting much longer. Thanks for your patience. We’re equally as as eager to get this out to you all …

    18. Tony says:

      Savages..all savages…take your time admin, quality > all.

      :)

    19. admin says:

      Thank you. Look at this now as an early Holiday present, thus the wait may be more bearable. We’re pushing for full completion in the next 48-72 hrs.

      With every last-second fix or update, we must ensure that everything else still functions properly — rest assured, we’re working faster than Michael Phelps or Usain Bolt in the 2008 Olympics :)

    20. admin says:

      Thank you all for your patience. Without further delay …

      Version 1.0 is ready!

      Here it is: http://www.viadat.com/2008/12/wordpress-store-locator-plugin-v10-is-here/

    21. Tony says:

      I’ve tried installing repeatedly.

      Keep getting the following error:

      Plugin could not be activated because it triggered a fatal error.

      Fatal error: Unable to read 18618 bytes in /home/tpupaz/public_html/ataarizona/wp-content/plugins/store-locator/functions.sl.php on line 0

      I’m using WordPress 2.6.3

      Thanks!! I’m so excited to get this up and running!!

    22. Tony says:

      I’ve upgraded to 2.6.5 and still same install errors as above.

    23. admin says:

      Hey Tony,
      Good to see you back … in your FTP program, you MUST use “Binary” mode, because files will corrupt if you upload in ASCII or Automatic mode

    24. Tony says:

      Thanks much – I’ve always used auto determine. Plugin is activated, will post results and any other help I can provide. Thanks much!!!

    25. admin says:

      Tony …

      Please re-download the plugin. We just identified & fixed one error unrelated to the one that you were receiving that might prevent locations from showing up during a search

    26. Tony says:

      It works awesome guys , check it out

      http://ataarizona.com/store-locator/

      I’m gonna try and build a form for the front page that will pass the value of the address to the store locator page.

      If it works you can have a copy to distribute if you want as my way of saying thanks.

      Also let me know if you want any reviews written up on this.

    27. admin says:

      Looks great Tony … Appreciate it. And if your extra script works, let us know!

      Sure, a written review is welcomed.

    28. cblock says:

      it would seem that things are installed correctly, the only thing is that i cant seem to add locations to my database:

      Can anyone help???

    29. laNegra says:

      Thank you so much for this plugin! It’s just what I needed. I’m following every step you make, updating each upgrade.

    30. nowfal says:

      Thanks for the great plugin, it’s exactly what I needed, I’m also purchasing the csv import/export and bulk updater.

      I’d like to setup a page I make in either flash/html that will have the states listed or in map form, that when you click on the state it’ll take you to the store locator zoomed into that state. Is it possible to pass a query string var or maybe make a javascript call to do that?

      • admin says:

        Yes, it is possible to do that … But it would require a some customization to a few of the files in order to do that at the moment

    31. Faliq says:

      Hi,

      I wanna ask, how i can call this plugin function. Because i wanna to put
      it somewhere else beside post and page.

      Do advice me. It would be nice if this plugin can also act like widget.

      Do reply me plz.

    32. Roger says:

      Love this plugin – seriously cool, just one concern intermittently the map of my chosen address flashes and goes to another location in Australia ?!?

      Grateful if you could advise if I am doing something wrong or a fix I can apply.

      Otherwise – amazing…

      • admin says:

        Roger, thank you for the compliments …
        Sometimes that may occur if your dimensions (width, height) for your map are set to too large a value, did you edit the dimensions on the “Map Designer” page?
