HAppy holidays and happy new year. Holidays got me away from the computer for a while and things got delay a bit. a have uploaded the new update 1.7 for the free version to wordpress.org and you can download it right now. I am still working on the update for the premium version as well as on the new site and hopefully will be available soon.
The new update is a major update as i was redoing most of the core which took care of many bug fixes, security issues and performance.
some of the changes made are below:

  • * SQL queries are now more secure and were modified for better performance.
  • * “User Current location” widget/shortcode were improved – better looking and better performance. Few bugs were fixed as well.
  • * Locator and cookies were improved and now working better when trying to locate a user and when saving the information via cookies. Modified to work better with different languages and fixed issues with special characters.
  • * buddypress – “location” tab modified – looking better and easier to work with.
  • * Geocode function improved when geocoding and saving information via database.
  • * fix issues when using WordPress multisite – now can be use when multisite activated and fixed issue were address field will not show in the New/Edit post page.
  • * Now can choose the locator icon for each search form in the shortcode settings.
  • * “member’s location widget” – Improved and bug fixes.
  • * backend – visually improved.
  • * widgets names were changed from WPPL to GMW.

  1. Thanks for working so hard on the update Eyal. I’ll upload the free version to my site as I need WP 3.5 but will get the premium version as soon as you have the new release.

    1. You are welcome. The version has been ready for a while but i am still working on the new site. I wanted to have the site and the plugin up at the same time.However, since it is taking too long i have uploaded the premium version to the current site for users who already have it to be able to update and for new users as well.
