  • 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!!

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

  • 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

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

  • 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

  • It works awesome guys , check it out

    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.

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

    Sure, a written review is welcomed.

  • 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???

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

  • 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?

  • 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.

  • 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…

    • 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?
