Great Things on the Horizon + Continue Giving Suggestions

Saturday, October 17th, 2009 

On the Horizon ...

On the Horizon …

Still here working on great improvements for the WordPress Store Locator plugin. Thank you all for your great suggestions and requests as always.

For the time being … Have decided to continue to provide updates to Version 1.2 while still concurrently developing Version 1.3, which has been a big undertaking to bring some exciting features.

Additionally, to allow for quicker development, addons will be unavailable starting Friday, Oct. 30rd, 2009 — this will allow improvements to the addon system, and 100% focus on development of new features (many of which we hope to be a surprise), since support is always provided for addons. Themes will still be available however.

In the Meantime…

1) Continue submitting your suggestions — You can do so in the comment section

2) More translations still needed — you can use this translation template to get started: Translation Template – As of v3.88 .

… to make translating easier, will most likely set up a dedicated page for translations, so that everyone can see who made the specific translations and also so people can collaborate.

New Things to See Since Version 1.2.23 + Version 1.3 is Approaching

Thursday, June 4th, 2009 

If you haven’t updated up to Version 1.2.23 of the WordPress Store Locator Plugin, definitely check it out! You will notice two major interface changes: One major change on the administration panel, and one major change to the mapping interface

Administration Panel
The “Map Designer” page has been revamped to be a little cleaner to allow for more logical management of the look and feel of your store locator map.

Map Interface
The Map Interface now uses the new Zoom and Pan tools provided by Google, which gives your store locators a much sleeker appeal.

Even maps deserve a makeover every now and then

Version 1.3
Version 1.3 is already being worked on, and I must say, I’m liking the new features. Plans are to have it ready no later then end of this month, June 2009.

Any desires, requests for features to be included? Would love to hear them.

 

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

Sunday, April 26th, 2009 

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.
