We are proud to release version 2.1.1 of our Store Locator product line for Joomla! 3.x and version 1.8.3.2 of our Store Locator for Joomla! 2.5 / 1.5.  This release is mostly a bug fix release based on feedback from our forums and support tickets. Some improvements include a fix on Joomla! 3.x for saving a twitter username on a location, improved language support and Unicode character importing, as well as better IE11 stability improvements.

We are very excited to announce the immediate release of our latest Joomla! Store Locator extension.

  • Joomla 3.x – Version 2.1.0
  • Joomla 1.5/2.5 – Version 1.8.3

This release adds the much desired Responsive layout to the Joomla 3.x branch. Now our Store Locator will instantly theme and match to your site’s responsive template and design patterns if  supported by your template.

We also fixed many bugs and accounted for new and interesting use cases thanks to our wonderful forum posters implemented in both versions. Check the change log for additional details.

Thank you for your continued support and feedback!

We just have received final notice of shutdown of Google Maps API v2.

This means that if you are using an older application that uses google’s older API, such as our Store Locator prior to v1.7.0, then you will need to update to ensure continued operation of that application.

Here is the official notice:

As you may be aware, JavaScript Maps API v2 was scheduled for shutdown on May 19, 2013. After listening to feedback from developers we decided to extend the deprecation timeline by six months, to November 19, 2013 to allow more time for migration to v3 of the API.

On November 19, 2013 we will deploy a JavaScript wrapper that attempts to automagically turn remaining v2 maps into v3 maps. Though we expect this wrapper to work for most simple maps, we cannot guarantee that your maps will continue to function. We therefore highly recommend that you migrate to v3 before November 19. The good news is that Google Maps JavaScript API v3 is more robust and feature rich than v2, and we’ve written a guide to assist the migration.

Sincerely,

Google Maps API Developer Relations

We at Sysgen Media are proud and honored to announce the log overdue and highly anticipated Joomla 3.0 Compatible version of the Store Locator!!! This release is only for Joomla 3.0. Older Joomla versions will be updated shortly.

The Store Locator v2.0 has been completely re-written from the ground-up, taking full advantage of Joomla 3 libraries and admin functionality. We also included full support for Admin and Front End Language files so that now for the first time the entire component can be translated, easing administration in a language other then English. We have also taken advantage of Joomla 3′s built-in Bootstrap CSS making the component easily fit into any bootstrap ready template.

There are so many improvements that there are too many features to list here! We hope the community benefits from this release, and we are excited to continue to keep our extension up to par with Joomla releases!

Now that we have released this version, we will be concentrating on adding features in functionality in the versions to come. You can look forward to Detailed Listing Pages, Responsive Template and much more in the few next releases!

We are proud to announce the immediate availability of our latest feature update for the Joomla! Store locator. This feature release has some much anticipated features. We now include the ability to show Map Clusters more effectively when you have a large number of locations concentrated in a small area. We support Google MarkerCluster and Spiderifer javascript clustering methods.

We also improved the handling of large data sets in both the admin area as well as the Front-End of the Joomla! Website. This will have significant noticeable speed enhancements, especially for users when searching in combination with tag filters. You can now also set the ability to have Tags search exclusively (OR) or inclusively (AND).

You can now also set start and end publishing times for locations which can be useful in some situations. In addition there are a number of bug fixes and general improvements made throughout the display and useability of the extension.
