The plugin works great and premium support is well worth it
By , for WP 4.5.3

The plugin is great and does exactly what it should do as described. In regards to people complaining about support... a premium license (that comes with premium support) is only $30 a year! I know, we have become spoiled with the amount of freebies out there for WordPress but $30 a year is nothing. Especially if you have already wasted hours trying to figure things out for yourself!

Plugin still works like a charm
By , for WP 4.5

You need to know how to customise it, and your ready to go. The updates for new wordpress versions could be beter.

CSV upload works good. Automatic geocode works good.

Limited support and functionality
By , for WP 4.4.1

Maximum .csv upload size of 2MB is too small. Requires manual geocoding. Tags and Categories form fields are not grouped.

Only free upload CSV map
By ,

This is the only free map locator that allows you to upload a full CSV file. That is literally the only reason I'm using this. Every single feature they claim works perfectly I've had to fiddle with to get to work properly.

It's also the only plugin that gives me problems while updating to the newer versions of wordpress.

Poorly Documented EVEN with Premium Support
By , for WP 4.2.2

EXTREMELY Poorly Documented.
Buggy, non-user-friendly.
Not for professional use - expect a lot of wasted time trying to make it look semi-professional

Do not work anymore. No support and no updates.
By , for WP 4.0

This looked nice but to old code and no updates or support. Dont work in mobile devices and slows regular sites down overall loading time.

Works for me, don't be put off
By , for WP 3.9.2

Don't be too put off by negative reviews - it works reasonably well out of the box so I'm glad I tried it.

I can't speak for the support as I've not needed it, but documentation seems to be lacking. I'm loathe to criticise something that's free though, so give it a try.

For others looking to use this plugin, be aware that you can alter the display of the search form with shortcode attributes - it took a lot of digging around to find this, and doesn't seem to be documented on the WordPress.org site or the plugin's own website.

Instead of [simplemap] you can use something like [simplemap search_form_cols=4 search_fields='labelbr_street||labelbr_city||labelbr_state||labelbr_zip||labeltd_distance||empty||empty||submit||empty||empty||empty']. This would change the number of columns in the search input table to 4, and then long parameter specifies which table cells to drop in the inputs.

There are other attributes you can change - just take a look at the defaults in \classes\simplemap.php around line 2318.

Great Store locator plugin
By , for WP 3.9.1

This really is the best one out there. Once you tweak a few things here and there you can really get the locator looking nice.

Was great, no longer supported.
By , for WP 3.9.1

We bought this about 2 years ago and within a month, they told us there was no longer going to be any support. I'm fine with that, but they should shut down the website and stop selling it to people.

Poor support & doesn't work with php 5.4+
By , for WP 3.9.1

The support of this plugin is shocking (just look at the support section) and it doesn't work with newer versions of php (5.4+), which you can't get any support on!

I would recommend avoiding this one and look elsewhere.
