For Those Updating Folder Name to “store-locator/” — Update the URLs of Your Icons Afterwards

April 26, 2009 - By 

For those of you that have been using the folder “wordpress-store-locator-location-finder/”, there’s been a notice in your dashboard indicating that you should name your folder “store-locator/”. This is because in the near future, “store-locator/” will receive the updates.

However, one note when changing: Go to the “Map Designer” tab and re-select the home & destination icons that you want to use because your store locator will most likely still be pointing to the icons according to the old directory path.

If you are experiencing any other issues when renaming your folder, please comment here — it always helps when others are able to see if they are not the only ones with a specific issue.


Google Maps Store Locator for WordPress Version 1.2.xx – “The Flight of the Bugs”

February 19, 2009 - By 

Greetings everyone. As always, your feedback has been more than appreciated. Version 1.2 has been dubbed “The Flight of the Bugs” because through each minor revision, we are getting closer and closer kicking out all the major bugs in this plugin.

You may not realize it, but the WordPress Store Locator is very far from it final stage. The next major versions will contain more features, and should allow you do much more.

For now, what we need from you: More complaints, more bug reports — If any little thing doesn’t work properly or something “bugs” you (pun intended), don’t hesitate to respond to this post.


Also, don’t forget, we still would love to have any translation that you may have completed for yourself, even if it’s not complete. Something is better than nothing. For more information on doing a translation, please go here

Congratulations: All-in-One-SEO Pack Becomes First Plugin to Reach 1,000,000 (1 Million) Downloads on the WordPress Plugin Directory

January 26, 2009 - By 

While working on our next release, we noticed that the All-in-One-SEO Pack (http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/all-in-one-seo-pack/) was fast approaching the 1 Million (1,000,000) download mark on the WordPress plugin directory.

I enjoy watching the clock strike midnight on New Year’s Eve every year, so I decided, “Why not track this and make sure to capture the transition from 999,999 to 1,000,000 for anyone who might be interested in seeing it?” Fortunately, I was able to do so (I feared it might skip from 999,998 to 1,000,001 as I refreshed the page, but fortunately, it didn’t)

A big congratulations is in order and well deserved by the the creators of this plugin (http://www.semperfiwebdesign.com/). We have certainly this plugin it on a number of our WordPress installations, and agree that it deserves the amount of downloads it has received.
