Looking for a maintainer to take control of this project and move it forward. As I no longer work with magento, I don't have time to improve it or debug issues. Anyone interested, post your availability here: https://github.com/ClaudiuCreanga/magento2-store-locator-stockists-extension/issues/30

Or you can download the latest zip file from releases, drop it into your app folder, copy the contents of src folder into the main folder and then run the last 2 commands above.

Or you can also get it from the magento2 marketplace. (there it is the old version 1.0.6 with less features)

You need to use your own gmaps api key. Go to https://developers.google.com/maps/documentation/javascript/get-api-key and get your own key and then insert it in configuration > stockists > Gmaps Api Key. Otherwise the map may not work because of Gmaps' daily limits.

Usage

Basic

  • The default url is /stockists. So once installed go to www.website.com/stockists (insert store code if necessary);
  • Location in admin is inside content menu > stockists;
  • Name, latitude and longitude are required values;
  • Bear in mind that chrome and some other browsers allow geolocation services only via https;

Import

  • The csv file needs to be comma separated and values should be quoted;
  • check the sample csv file in in docs folder;
  • name, latitude and longitude are required;
  • country field should be the 2 letter ISO code. Example: GB for United Kingdom and US for USA;
  • image should be the path of the image which is built from the first to letters separated by slash and then the name of the image. Example: for image test.png the path is /t/e/test.png. The image should be placed in folder pub/media/limesharp_stockists/stockist/image/t/e/ (last 2 letters changed of course);
  • if you want a stockist to be in multiple stores you can pass the ids of stores comma separated inside the store_id field;
  • To make sure your csv file is formatted correctly, you can open it in a text editor. It should look like this (comma separated and quoted values):

csv

Export

  • Just click export stores and a file will be saved by your browser on your computer;
