(This section has been updated to reflect updates in SLP version 5.5.)
There are settings under the General tab for Admin , User Interface, (Server and Data tabs in earlier versions, now are included under the APP tab). This documentation has been updated to reflect the Google API changes for our WPSLP self managed plug-in customers. The tab “App” Map is where you will enter your own Google API keys. MySLP customers do not need to worry about that. We do it for them.
The Admin tab is where your SLP Premier subscription Accounts ID , Log Schedule Messages, and other info is located. There is also a Reset Manage Locations button available for use to reset the back end Manage Locations display page to the default view (10 locations per page view). This feature was previously only available with the free SLP Janitor Add-on.
Scroll to Premier Subscription Info Thank you for being a Premier Member. You will need to enter your User ID and Subscription ID via the Store Locator Plus General Settings Tab under the Admin section in order to get the latest updates to the Premier Plugin.
Our software-as-a-service platform, MySLP, runs on many different web builders and mobile frameworks. If you are using MySLP you cannot easily create pages that contain the [slp_directory] shortcode used in the Store Locator Plus WordPress plugins. There is another way to do this with our SaaS offering.
The Embed Code
Embed Code For Directories
When displaying a directory, you normally do not want the location search and map to appear. You can use the data-presentation attribute with your script to tell MySLP what type of location presentation you would like to show on your site.
Here is a full script example from our test server — you can see where we added data-presentation=”directory” to the standard embed script.
Premier Subscription Licenses must be validated on the primary site of a multi-site install. This is typically the FIRST site in your site list, but can be changed via wp-config. If you are using multi site you should know which site is the primary Blog ID. Adding your Premier id and your license on your sub sites will not validate the WPSLP Premier license. (This information only applies to WordPress SLP and not MYSLP.
Communication with the SLP license server is required for any licenses to be validated. You can check if standard web requests are working between your WordPress install and SLP. This can be tested from within your PHP environment with a simple PHP script that uses a ‘curl’ or ‘file get contents ‘operation.
You can also click on the Store Locator Plus / info tab in the back end of the plug-in. If you are seeing “Latest News” with fairly current dates then the problem is most likely not a blocked communications via a firewall. In those cases the issue is most likely an incorrectly typed subscription ID or you have entered the info on the wrong site of a multi-site install.
Our MYSLPEnterprise level users or WPSLP Premier subscribers will find several additional map controls to enable or disable built-in Google Map elements. A simple checkbox allows users to turn the Full Screen and zoom controls on or off in addition to the previously-available Hide “Stick Man” , scale, and type controls.
This option is also available to WordPress plugin users with an active Premier subscription.
When both are enabled the links for phone numbers are set to the defacto tel: hyperlink and if a phone number contains the text specified by the Phone Extension Delimiter option it will insert a long pause at that point before continuing to dial.
This method uses the oft-support comma placeholder, adding two commas to extend the pause to allow for slower phone systems to catch up and wait for the extension to be entered.
The Horizontal or Vertical Checkbox Category Selector feature is available for WPSLP Premier or MySLP Enterprise level subscription customers. The checkbox works with an “OR” selection based on the Parent category. With Premier or Enterprise you will see additional category selectors under the Settings/Search/Category section. For example : If you check the  red and  blue boxes on the category selector it will show any location in the red OR blue category.
The locations loading indicator shows your visitors that the server is working on returning a list of locations.
Additional loading indicators are available for MySLP Enterprise and WPSLP Premier members. Example of other options loading results if you choose “Loading indicator for Results” or for the map if you choose from dropdown “Loading indicator map”. This feature available for Store Locator Plus Premier Plugin or the SLP SaaS Enterprise customers. The locations loading indicator is enabled by selecting the “Loading Indicator” under Store Locator Plus | Store Locator Plus > Results > Appearance.
The default setting provided by Store Locator Plus.
A circular loading indicator.
Choose the color palette for the loading indicator.
Amber on Light Grey
Blue on Light Grey
Choose where you want the loading indicator to appear while the search is underway. It will replace the locator elements in the map, search, or results box until the locations are loaded.
