Store Locator Plugin

Hi there,

I am looking for a “store locator” plugin similar to what’s going on here:

http://www.evanhealy.com/stores

Basically, my client has an extensive list of national stores (http://ohaskin.com/locations) and wants a search function with results.

Anything on WPMU that can do that/

Thank you,

Nick

    We do not have an solutions that are similar to what you linked to or fit that description.

    However, I do have a number of suggestions for you.

    The store locator you linked to is some simple Javascript that displays a new city depending on which state was selected. That solution is not very scalable and as such, I would not recommend it.

    There are a number of store locator plugins on WordPress.org. I would recommend taking a look at Google Maps via Store Locator Plus. It will probably accomplish what you’re looking for.

    You could also create a custom post type and a new post for each of your location. You could even put a map on that page. Then all you need to do is set up a custom search that only searches for a certain post type. Then people can use a search field to find their location based on keyword. You could also setup a “no results” page and customize it to say something like “sorry there are no stores in your area” or something. You would also be able to give each store their own dedicated URL to show off hours, contact info, etc.

    I hope that helps! If you need any further clarification, or if I did not properly answer your question, please don’t hesitate to ask.

Thank NAME, for their help.
