I am testing Store Locator Plus version 3.9 plus a new version of Store Pages that is a separate add-on install as of the 3.9 release.
If you are a licensed Store Pages user DO NOT INSTALL 3.9 without reading this first.
I don't know how many ways to get the word out in advance. There is a notice in the readme file. Notices in several places on the CSA website. Notices in the SLP newsletters that go out monthly. Notices on the daily updates on Facebook and my blog that have gone out daily.
Store Pages is a significant change from prior versions. It is no longer a LICENSE KEY REQUIRED add-on. When you upgrade to Store Locator Plus 3.9, Store Pages will go away.
If you have a paid/active license for Store Pages you must create an account with an order at http://www.charlestonsw.com/. If you have an existing order, that works. If not you need to buy the FREE version of the base Store Locator Plus product so you will have an order # I can review. You will then need to contact me at http://www.charlestonsw.com/mindset/contact-us/, give me your Store Pages license # (look on your SLP General Settings Page) and your order # so I can attach the new Store Pages download to your account.
The upgrade to Store Pages 3.9 is free for licensed users but you need to follow the steps above.
For all other Store Locator Plus users, the new version does not have a lot of new features but there are a dozen bug fixes. It also has a much smaller memory footprint and should run slightly faster on sites with a large number of locations.
Testing is underway and SLP 3.9 should be out soon. Hopefully this week.
