Usage: Embed Store Locator Shortcode

Store Locator Shortcode

To place the store locator just create a new page and insert the following shortcode:

[wordpress_store_locator]

New from Version 1.4.1: Shortcode attributes to create multiple maps with different categories

Example 1:

  • Only show category ID 34 (T-Shirts)
  • no children
  • no “show all categories”
[wordpress_store_locator categories="34" show_children="no" show_all="no"]

Example 2:

  • Show Categories 32 (Clothes) and 35 (Music Stores)
  • Show no children
  • Show “all categories”
[wordpress_store_locator categories="32,35" show_children="no" show_all="yes"]

Search for Store Shortcode

If you want to have a search for store page like in our Demo, you can create a new page or use any other like your Home page for example. Then place the Following Shortcode:

[wordpress_store_locator_search url="https://welaunch.io/plugins/wordpress-store-locator/demo/" style="1" show_filter="yes"]

Google API Key

For our plugin you will need a fully working Google API Key. A tutorial on how to get it, can be found here: https://connections-pro.com/documentation/create-google-maps-api-keys/
You need to make sure, that inside the Google Console the following options are activated:

Allow your domain to access the key
Enable: Google Places API Web Service
Enable: Google Maps JavaScript
Enable: Google Maps Geocoding

  1. This address appears by default when using the shortcode:

    Rostov Oblast, Russia, 346222

    How do I remove it?

  2. We install the plugin, but it is giving error all the time of Geocoder failed due to: REQUEST_DENIED. What can it be?

  3. Hi,
    I’ve added the API. But when I add the shortcode [wordpress_store_locator] to a page it says Publishing Failed or Updating Failed. When I hit preview I can see the store locator. So close 🙂
    Can you please help?
    Thanks,
    Gill

  4. Hello,

    Ive used the shortcode: [wordpress_store_locator] to place the store locator on a normal page, however regardless of where on the page I place the shortcode, the locator keeps apearing at the top of the page. I need it to appear where Ive placed the shortcode.

    I’m using the Divi theme and placing the shortcode in a module specifically designed for code such as this. I’ve tried using Modal Code Position in the settings, but this doesnt work either.

    Any help would be appreciated!
    Thanks,

  5. Is it possible to have a shortcode to display a map that shows all stores by default? I want to show every pin on a map on one page, but not on another page.

  6. I’ve added the API it shows that I have stores in the system, but as soon as I go to the page that holds the shortcode, it tells me “No stores found… Try Again.” What’s going wrong?
