Store Locator v3.7 — Improvements With Custom Post Types & Page Builders

 - By 

Custom Post Types / Statuses / Page Builders

As WordPress becomes more advanced, so do the techniques employed by theme & plugin authors.

To keep in step, noticed that custom post types, statuses, and page builders were sometimes causing some users’ maps not to show up at times by preventing the WordPress Store Locator‘s javascript from loading. Store Locator v3.7+ should fully fix that now.

Download Here or Update Via Your WP Admin Dashboard

Now, all should be fine — if your map is sometimes not loading, make sure to update! The latest version is now v3.8 as of this writing.

Important: Update To Store Locator v2.x, Which Uses Google Maps API v3!

 - By 

Update to Store Locator v2.x!

Update to Store Locator v2! Important!

It is mandatory that you update to v2 of the WordPress Store Locator, because it uses Google Maps API v3.

Older Store Locator versions use Google Maps API v2, which is being shut off soon.

Older Versions Will Not Geocode Your Locations Anymore

In fact, Google Geocoding API v2 seems to already be off. No further questions concerning geocoding errors will be answered for those of you using old versions before Store Locator v2 (geocoding: giving your locations latitude & longitude coordinates).

If your plugin folder is ‘wordpress-store-locator-location-finder’ (stopped at v1.2.37):

  1. Deactivate
  2. Rename the folder to ‘store-locator’
  3. Then reactivate the plugin so that you start seeing updates in your WordPress plugins admin panel!

This renaming notification is in your admin panel. You will not lose your locations.

Just like keeping WordPress up-to-date, keeping your Store Locator up-to-date is crucial, due to changes to external services/APIs such as Google Maps.

Announced This Twice So Far, Don’t Hesitate — Update!

  1. When first announcing Store Locator v2
  2. When telling everyone to update to Store Locator v2.1

New in v2.3 & v2.4 — Additional Options for Map Interface

 - By 

New Map Interface Options

Versions 2.3 & 2.4 have introduced options for updating the message seen by your website visitors if:

  1. No locations are found during a Store Locator search
  2. The initially searched location doesn’t exist

Additionally, for those choosing to load locations by default, you can now determine whether to show both the map markers and the listing of results on initial load, or just the map markers.

Translation Template Also Has Been Updated

All languages are welcome, especially since new text has been introduced since Store Locator v2.0, you can download in here: [download#13#nohits]
