Details

Store Locator Plus is an advanced system for managing multiple physical locations via a fully integrated WordPress solution. Whether you have ten locations or ten-thousand, you manage them with ease right from within your WordPress admin panel. There is no special programming or extra setup required. Simply enter your locations, create a page or edit an existing page and put the [SLPLUS] short code on it. The Store Locator Plus search form and map will "magically" appear.

The base plugin, available for free from the WordPress Plugin Directory has all the features you need to create a comprehensive store locator interface on your website. Set up an interactive Google map for your customers with a single shortcode.

Advanced customization is available via the settings interface in the admin panel. Set the map size to best fit your site. Change map types (terrain, satellite, standard views). Add details like a store description, hours, a website address, an email address. Re-label entry fields and results fields.

The Store Locator Plus plugin is used by some of the biggest international brands as well as a number of smaller chains. It has been used to created interactive store finder maps, service directories, and as a product finder. Visit the SLP Customers page to see a sample of some of the people that are using the plugin today.

My Philosophy

I strive to create code that runs efficiently and without bugs. Well-written plugins are few and far between. While there are plenty of plugins that look nice, many of those plugins, including the "cool shiny ones" have hidden problems. Over 90% of the plugins available on the WordPress plugin directory generate dozens, if not hundreds, of warnings and errors when you turn off the "hide all the problems" settings.

These hidden problems impact memory usage, fill up disk space, and reduce performance. While you may not see the errors on your WordPress site, they are still being tracked. The more errors, the more disk I/O, the slower the app.

During my 20 years of software development, I have found that leaving "innocuous" warnings in place tends to lead to trouble further down the road. Warnings today often become errors tomorrow. Many programming languages, PHP included, continue to tighten security and close loopholes that are typically found living near warning messages. Some warnings are telling you to "change this now, it will be gone tomorrow". Eventually tomorrow will come.

While my plugins may not be the prettiest on the block, I do try to make sure that all the hidden stuff you don't see is designed as well as it can be. My code is not perfect, but when I find a bug I try to fix it fast. If I create a bug I try to fix it even faster.

I like to write plugins that last. I hope you appreciate my work.

Rate This Plugin

Please rate this plugin! Rating the plugin, hopefully with 5 stars, helps increase the exposure on WordPress, which generates more downloads and purchases of add-ons. The more add-ons I sell the easier it is to put food on the table and give me more time to code cool new features. No ratings, no food, more hours working as the Walmart Greeter, less coolness in the plugins.

Give me a chance to address your concerns if this plugin doesn't earn 5 stars by contacting me directly or by posting in the support forum at the CSA website.

Help Me "Speak" Your Language

Help me with translating the English words and phrases in the plugin and I will give you a premium add-on. The base plugin and the premium add-on packs have been updated to work with most language translation tools including the Codestyling Localization plugin. Contact me if you have a newly translated .po and .mo file to submit. If I do not have the language files already, or if they were notably out-of-date, I will add the premium add-on pack of your choice to your account. Upon request I will also put a link to your site in the "special thanks" section.

Any EASIER way to perform translations? Load the Codestyling Localization plugin and then find it under "Tools/Localization" in your admin panel.
