Our Philosophy

We 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” (WP_DEBUG) 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.

We 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.

We try to make sure that all the hidden stuff you don’t see is designed as well as it can be. When we do hear about a bug we fix it fast.

We like to write plugins that last. We hope you appreciate our work.

Privacy Policy

By using Store Locator Plus® on your website you should incorporate the following on your site:
Third Party Site’s Use of Store Locator Plus® Privacy Policy

By default the Store Locator Plus® plugin does NOT have geolocation detection and will not ask for your user’s latitude and longitude.
Location services are available via the Store Locator Plus® SaaS Service on the Professional or Enterprise level.

By default the Store Locator Plus® plugin does NOT record location searches or other data when using the maps.
You CAN enable that tracking with the reporting feature in the Store Locator Plus® SaaS Service on the Professional or Enterprise level.

What are the Add Ons?

Add ons extend the functionality of the plugin beyond the basic service and features and can be purchased ala-carte.
This gives those customers who want more out of the plugin the extra features they desire while keeping the main plugin as
efficient as possible for everyone else. It also provides a great way to support future development while getting a
“little something extra” when contributing to the development of the product.

All plugins are true add-on packs. They are non-destructive OPTIONAL additions to the base plugin.
They do not require the base plugin to be uninstalled or re-installed.
Installing an add-on pack will not change location data or modify base plugin settings.

What is the Store Locator Plus® SaaS (MySLP)?

Store Locator Plus® SaaS is our hosted software-as-a-service for Store Locator Plus®. We install the software on our servers where you will login to manage locations and setup the locator user experience via the map settings. This is a paid monthly service and includes all Google Map fees. It is NOT required to use the WordPress plugins.

What is the difference between Store Locator Plus® SaaS and the WordPress plugins?

Store Locator Plus® SaaS requires no downloads or software installation. With Store Locator Plus® SaaS you are given a small JavaScript snippet that you can put on any web page — not just WordPress sites. For sites that have a more than 8,000 map views, our Store Locator Plus® SaaS overage rates are 20% less than Google’s API direct billing.

The Store Locator Plus WordPress plugins are downloadable zip files that you install on your self-managed WordPress site. The base plugin is free. The add ons are paid , but once you purchase and install them you own them. You are responsible for keeping them updated and making sure the web hosting plan you are using can handle the technical requirements. You must also setup and manage your own Google API Keys and have a credit card on file with Google. They will bill you based on how many map views and address lookups you ask them to handle.

What are the terms of the license?

The license is GPL. Learn more on the License Terms page.

How can I translate the plugin into my language?

Store Locator Plus® is now part of the WordPress Translate system.

You can translate this readme file and the text strings in the main Store Locator Plus® plugin at Translate.WordPress.Org.

For the Add Ons, the language files are distributed with each add-on pack.
If you translate an Add On send the .po and .mo files to support@storelocatorplus.com.

How do I report a problem?

Post in the support forum.

I've been using this plugin for many years for a client who needs to show doctors and medical locations that serve a particular condition. With the Power and Experience add-ons it's the most robust store locator I've been able to find. I've engaged with support on numerous occasions over the years and they have been responsive, even taking my suggestions to the dev team for future releases.

I've been fighting this plugin for two years. I work in Wordpress all day and this is one of the worst functioning plugins of them all. Listing management is crap. I cannot even get a list of active listings.. Hu? The user edit pages have multiple scroll bars so you cannot navigate without... you know what Im not waisting any more time on this. Just know its shitty.

This is a great plugin for a store locator! So many ways to customize it. Whether you go with the MySLP plan or the Wordpress plugin you won't be disappointed. I had some trouble getting the plugin to work with my theme, but I contacted support and they were more than helpful at trying to diagnose the problem. The IP blocker in the Premier plugin is such a great add-on. Highly recommended!

This plugin may be a bit dated in some areas but I can overlook that. It works for what we need and is very customizable. After talking to the developer we decided to look at the power and experience plugins (a bit pricey, but looks like they'll save us a lot of time customizing the user interface). So far so good -- great CSS and document structure make it easy to customize and get the look we want. No problems with our Avada theme and store locator plus is easily handling our large location imports. Good job guys!

This plugin did not end up working with my theme.... Salient, which is one of the most popular themes on Themeforest. I assumed the messed up display of the map could be easily solved, so I put in many hours populating the plugin with locations, only to end up having to move to a different plugin that works great. I wasted a lot of time, so I wanted to warn you...

Im pretty angry and disappointed with the way the development of this plugin suite has been managed. After buying all the plugins and spending hundreds of pounds they made everything defunct and push a service plugin. I make it a point of avoiding the companies which take advantage of customers or who keep churning their business model. I am looking elsewhere to put my money.
