The following videos shows the new Tagalong cascading menus as well as a brief overview of setting up categories and importing categories via the CSV file.
Another new feature that was added this week is the only_with_category shortcode attribute. This attribute allows pages to filter results based on a specific category slug. This works much like the Pro Pack only_with_tag feature. Documentation is online for both features.
Store Locator Plus 4 / Tagalong 4
These features will be included in the Tagalong 4 release that works in conjunction with Store Locator Plus 4. Store Locator Plus 4 is a free upgrade, however if you upgrade the base plugin from Store Locator Plus 3.X to Store Locator Plus 4 you MUST upgrade all of your add-ons. The add-on upgrades are a paid upgrade. Discounts will be offered for users that have an active copy of the SLP3 compatible add-ons that have been purchased within the prior 12 months. Details will be posted when the final release of SLP4 goes online.
Users with active premium add-on packs will be given the opportunity to receive the SLP4 beta as well as the beta versions of their add-on packs starting next week. Details will be posted online in the blog and on the forum. Access to beta versions will be granted on a case-by-case basis.
Any user that is running Store Locator Plus 3 and is planning on upgrading to Store Locator Plus 4 should consider setting up a testing/staging site and installing the new versions for testing prior to the final release.
