Good idea - frustrating to use.
By ,

The good - I think this is a strong plugin with lots of functionality. I like the "buy what you need" aspects of the paid parts.

However, sometimes it just DOES NOT WORK. Every time there is a new release of this plugin it breaks something that was previously working. Like "surprise! your custom tag label is gone!"

I have never been able to get the custom CSS to work using the plugin's input box. No biggie - I just wrote my own theme. But EVERY TIME there is an upgrade, I have to re-upload my theme. Stuff like that is maddening.

I know it's a one man shop and I know that is hard. But it's frustrating to feel like there is no support. I am invested in this plugin, my client is invested in this plugin. I think some support help - even from volunteers - would help this plugin immensely.

Excellent build, but too many add-on packs
By , for WP 3.6.1

Yes, I think this is the greatest store locator plugin you can find out there. I've never had a hard time adjusting the settings that come with the free version.

My issue is being required to purchase tons of add-on packs for $35 each ($50 for some). Creating add-on packs for big complicated portions of the plugin is understandable. However, I have to spend $35-50 for all the features in the Enhanced Map add-on only so I can change the initial current location of the home marker? The version of SLP I installed originally automatically placed the map view over the largest cluster of locations. After "upgrading" my version, I discovered that I now have to pay for this functionality. Why would you want to develop your plugin in the backwards direction?

Conclusion: The plugin is excellent for large businesses who need a ton of control over their Store Locator, but the developer should revise which functionalities should be add-ons and which ones should be automatically included. To repeat someone else's comment: "There are other store locator plugins that perform the same functionalities as SLP's add-on packs for free."

form works
By , for WP 3.5.1

every thing worked fine until I had to adjust the code... I am not sure why I can't get back to the backend to adjust some things. It just gives me a log in notice...
