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

 - By 

If you haven’t updated up to Version 1.2.23 of the Google Maps 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.

New Map Designer Page (Click to Enlarge)

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

 - 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.
