Sat, 10 Jan 2015
When using products, now it searches for the exact product name. Before it might give wrong results because it searched for ANY word from the product name. For example, if you had two products "Dark Beer" and "Lager Beer", and searched for "Dark Beer", it also returned records with "Lager Beer" only because it contained the word "Beer".
Product names are now sorted in alphabetical order.

Mon, 6 Oct 2014
Added an option to hide the user autodetect button.
Added an option to view locations in alphabetical order (in Settings > Group Output).
Added the data-id attribute in the location wrapping div (.lpr-location) in the front-end for a possible developer use.
Cleaned and optimized many files thus greatly reducing the package size.
Tue, 12 Aug 2014
Added an option to set a limit on the number of locations that are shown following a search. For example, even though there may be 10 locations near AB10 C78, the store locator software only shows 3.
Tue, 8 Jul 2014

Improved Mobile Experience
We have adjusted the front view page a bit so it prevents automatic zoom and leaves a bit of gap on the right side to allow easier scrolling beyond the store locator map. These changes improve the customer viewing experience on mobile devices with smaller screen size and resolution.

Several WordPress Installations
Once you set up Lookup Runner as a WordPress plugin, you can easily set up another instance with a different database, and a different shortcode to display in another post.
Sun, 23 Jun 2013
Append Customer Search
A setting to automatically append some text to the customer search. For example, 5000 postal code can return results in Australia and in South Africa. If you deal with Australian locations, you can set this option to Australia and it will be automatically appended to all customer searches. This will be done in the background. For example, if a customer enters "5000", the system will search for "5000 Australia".
Wed, 15 May 2013
Customer Selectable Search Radius
Now you can define several options for the search radius that your customers can choose from, for example 10, 25 and 50 miles.
Thu, 25 Apr 2013
Auto detect location automatically
A settings option to turn the auto detect on automatically, so the user lands on the page and Lookup Runner immediately picks locations closest to their current location.
If hide some of the additional fields in the front-end view
If you want to keep additional misc location fields in the database, but not display them in the front-end search results, now you can toggle them in the Configuration > Location Form.
Wed, 17 Apr 2013
We have added an option to keep track of what your customers are searching for in your store locator.
If Start With Default Locations Listing
Another new option is the setting whether your zip code locator will start with the default search address. If you set this option to No then it will just show the search form without the map and without the default results, waiting for your customer search input.
Wed, 6 Mar 2013
Customer Location Auto detect
We have added an option so that if a customer mobile device has GPS on board then Lookup Runner can make use of that to find out their position and automatically displays nearest locations or stores.
Directions From Customer Location To Yours
Another new option is that now your customers can also see directions from their location to your stores or dealer locations.
Mon, 18 Feb 2013
Default Search String
We have added a setting to leave the default search string blank. If you do so, it will show all the locations in the start page. Sure it will make sense if you have a fewer number of locations, up to 50-100 so the map display will not become too cluttered.
Locations Listing Sidebar
Another new option is to configure whether you need to show the sidebar with the locations listing. If you disable it, the map of your store locator display will occupy the whole width of the container it is in that makes sense for designs that already have a sidebar. You can still display the list of locations if you specify an HTML element with id="lpr-locations", for example
<div id="lpr-locations"></div>somewhere on the page with the Lookup Runner map, for example in the website sidebar.
Tue, 5 Feb 2013
If you use the "products" property of your locations, the available products dropdown list is added to the search form, the products options are automatically synchronized when you add, update or import locations. This is a great function if you are building an online product finder.
Added a priority field for locations, which can be either Normal, or Featured which is shown on top of other search results regardless of distance, or Always Shown which is shown on top of all searches regardless of address or zip code search, product, or distance.
Mon, 21 Jan 2013
Optional Search Field
Added an optional search field in the front view so a customer can add a search term, this may be useful for product searches, etc.
Remote Search Form
Added an option to make use of the remote search form - you can add a locator search form to any page of your site, and your customers will be redirected to your locator page with their search results.
Geocode Errors Fix
BUG: not geocoded locations were not correctly detected in the admin panel on some sites.
Thu, 17 Jan 2013
Distance Calculation Fix
BUG: distance calculation was working incorrectly on some sites.
Tue, 15 Jan 2013
WordPress Store Locator Plugin
Lookup Runner can now be installed as WordPress store locator plugin - manage it from your WordPress admin panel and include in any post or page with shortcode.
Fri, 11 Jan 2013
Search Distance Limit
Added configuration to limit search within certain distance, i.e. 100 or 50 miles, earlier it was fixed to 100 miles. Now there are 5 custom fields available, earlier was 3.
Sun, 23 Dec 2012
