Locations don't show up on front end after update
By , for WP 4.1.1

The locator stopped working. Won't show updates. I have all of the major premium add ons. Not sure what happened.

SUPERB!
By , for WP 4.1.1

Amazing basic plugin, even better with the PRO pack that now supports daily import of locations - amazing guy to work with and has been super helpful throughout the process.

This is hands down the most useful plugin out there for handling large numbers of store locations.

Solving all my problems!
By , for WP 4.1.1

I thought I was going to have to hire a programmer to do what I wanted to do for my client, but this plugin has solved all my problems. The geo-location function is an added bonus - love it!

Works like a charm

I have used it once and liked it

Free version 4 stars, paid add-ons 2 stars
By , for WP 4.0.1

Be aware that if you use the paid add-ons (for example to perform an import - $50, or categories, $50) that support, which is only available on the author's site, is nearly non-existent. You have the option of paying even more to get various guaranteed levels of support (upwards of $100 to get a same day response). In short, do not assume that because you throw upwards of $500 towards one of the bundles of addons that you're going to get any help beyond what the docs offer (unless you pony up more cash).

If you find something simply is not working due to a bug, and you have a deadline, best of luck. To add value, there are three options - better quality software that does not have bugs, lower cost software that make the bugs tolerable, or lower profit software that puts profits into support.

The author does make it clear that he's a one man shop and does not have time to support the product when customers complain, but that sounds like a problem with his business model, not one that should be shouldered by customers. I don't find that a good way to do business.

I'll also echo another reviewers comments on the UI - it is dated. On the frontend no ajax on flipping categories or radius settings, on the admin UI there's not much to explain - it's not styled like the rest of WP.

If you can get by with the free version, it's worth it. Also note that in the free version you can import stores via mysql/phpmyadmin, just import your pre-geocoded csv and make sure your column names match. I did this to see if it could handle a few thousand stores before committing to purchasing the "ProPack".

Awesome plugin, great value
By , for WP 4.1

This plugin is awesome. Works perfectly out of the box, the add-ons are an excellent value, and it's very easy to style via custom CSS. 5 stars. I'm very thankful!

Note: if you're having trouble modifying layout, simply copy one of the CSS files from the plugin's folder (/wp-content/plugins/store-locator-le/css by default) and use that as a guide for your own CSS.

This approach might not be future-proof, as the HTML the plugin generates may change following plugin updates, but it's a good way to get started. The markup this plugin generates is quite well organized and easy to style within reason.

VERY Dated, awful UI, etc

Trying to use this plugin makes me feel like I'm working in Windows 95.

Perfect map locator and well maintained
By , for WP 4.0

Have followed this for a while and see that it is maintaned and often updated. Have used the free version and bought 3 addon packs to make the design as I want. The free version have designs for USA in result listand I wanted European address formats but that is easy changed with a addon pack. Easy to make custom CSS adjustment and provided with several free design examples. The code for Store Locator Plus is working fast with Google map and do NOT slow down my site as another map tool did.

pour layout
By , for WP 4.0

with the free version, I couldn't get it to produce a descent layout with any of their themes.
I tried to use it with the Joyn theme by swiftideas (themeforest).
It didn't encourage me to buy add on's, so I left it for what it was.
