Store Locator Plus® was updated today with store category management improvements. Users reported an issue where the could not disassociate all store categories from a location. Assigning a store to a new category worked as expected, as did changing the category assigned to a location. The issue only appeared when trying to remove all category associates from a location.
Today’s updates resolves that issue and users can now disconnect all category references from a location.
The issue impacts both SaaS platform and WordPress plugin users.
WordPress plugin users will need to upgrade to the latest version of the Power plugin to get the store category management improvements. Users with a SaaS subscription have been automatically updated to the improved experience.
Version 5.13 of the Store Locator Plus® Power add on for WordPress plugins was released today. The update is a minor one as we continue to clean up the WordPress plugin family. Multiple updates are expected in the next few weeks in preparation for better SaaS integration , user experience improvements, and general feature improvements.
In Power v5.13
Add new location category was logging a warning about an undefined or null variable reference. This has been resolved.
Power – On The Radar
For the WordPress plugins we are aware of an issue related to the SEO pages functionality and an array offset warning that comes up when creating an SEO page. This is on the R&D schedule to be addressed in an upcoming release. Current estimate is to have an update ready in less than 30 days.
Store Locator Plus® SaaS Impact
The issues resolved in Power 5.13 do not affect functionality or performance of the MySLP SaaS platform. As such the updates included here will be published in combination with other updates in a future upgrade to the MySLP platform.
Users of our WordPress Power plugin get some new layout control features for our Pages SEO module. Users of our fully managed service will have to wait until later this year for our SEO page builder to be fully tested before getting that feature into our Enterprise accounts. MySLP users on the Power, Professional, or Enterprise accounts did get some other patches — see the end of this post.
