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
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.
The Map Interface now uses the new Zoom and Pan tools provided by Google, which gives your store locators a much sleeker appeal.
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.
Store Locator Translations are needed to better localize our WordPress Store Locator plugin.
If you have translated it into a different language, make sure to email the PO translation file to info [at] viadat.com … You might even get something nice in return … How does a free Store Locator upgrade sound?
If you would like to translate, but don’t know how, here are some quick steps:
1) Download the Most Recent Translation Template:
2) Download the program PoEdit:
3) Install PoEdit on your computer
4) Open the Store Locator Translation Template using PoEdit
*PoEdit allows you to translate individual phrases in the code, thus you should translate each phrase that appears. Once you’ve finished, and you save the PO translation file, an MO file (Machine-readable version of your human-readable PO file) will be generated. Email both files to us, and tell us what language it is. And you’re finished — simple, correct?
Countries Needed for Language Translation:
* Austria (German)
* Australia (English)
Belgium (Dutch, French, German)
* Brazil (Portuguese)
* Canada (English, French)
* Switzerland (German, French, Italian)
* Czech Republic
* New Zealand (English)
* Taiwan (Chinese [traditional])
United Kingdom (English)
