Google Maps isn’t working on the back-end. I found out via the browser console it is using the IP-address from my browser and not the IP-address from the server.
In the API I have a application restriction set to only accept HTTP requests from the website, since Google uses billing.
Think it’s best Connections is using the server IP-address if possible.
Please follow this tutorial on setting up your Google Maps API keys:
Hope this helps!
PS. A browser key, such the one used in the admin and frontend of the site can not be restricted by IP. It can be restricted by HTTP Referrer. This is a Google limitation, not Connections. In fact I would say that is a feature since most sites have dynamic and not static IP addresses. Only the server key can be setup with an IP restriction. You should only add that restriction if you are certain you have a static IP.
