Quick Updater Button Introduced in Google Maps Store Locator Plugin for WordPress Version 1.2.21 — Prevents Deletion of Addons, Themes, and other Extras When Updating

Saturday, April 18th, 2009 

quick_updaterIt’s been quite a while since since an update has been posted here on our blog, and hopefully, updates will start to become more and more frequent. Still working very hard on incorporating all of your feedback into this Store Locator plugin.

One important piece of feedback from many of you that have upgraded with addons and themes has been that the built-in WordPress updater deletes all of your addon and theme folders — and it’s been an inconvenience re-uploading the folders.

Well, now, as of version 1.2.21, a ‘Quick Updater’ button has been added to the ‘News & Upgrades’ page. This button functions almost like the WordPress auto-updater, EXCEPT that it should not remove your addons, themes, and other extras such as icons and languages.

One note though, when adding icons make sure to create a differently named icon instead of simply naming a new icon the same as a default icon so that the new icon does not get overwritten during the Quick Update. Enjoy! Your feedback on the Quick Updater is welcome here.

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

Thursday, February 19th, 2009 

a_bugs_life_1Greetings 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
