New Places for Business links in Google Plus Local Pages

This morning I noticed an update that I think happened this am or overnight, finally Google has upgraded the Irish version of Places for Business!

What does it mean for my business?

zem_contact_reborn rework to be HTML5 compatible

Updates November 2013

Thanks to the very talented Stef Dawson the plugin now works as it should have with some great edits, it uses the existing zem_contact_text instead of the custom zem_contact_type, and supports tasty client side html5 validation before server side. Autocomplete now available and support for autofocus=autofocus. If you used the previous iteration just update the plugin and edit your zem_contact_type tag to read zem_contact_text instead. We removed dependency on zem_contact_lang so you can safely deactivate the sister plugin previously required.
