Other options are:

  • Make featured store: this option, if enabled, will add the store at the top of the search results. Useful if you want to highlight specific stores.
  • Store name link option: here, you can choose the behavior of the store name when clicking on it:
  1. you can associate it to no link (no redirect will apply);
  2. you can associate it to the store link (the user will be redirected to the store page);
  3. you can associate it to a custom URL (the user will be redirected to the URL you have entered in the field Custom URL for store name).
  • Default map icon for this store: this allows using the default icon or a custom one to identify the store on the map.
