I have set up my Browser & Server keys with Google and entered them into the Connections Advanced settings – when I click “Show Map” the map appears briefly (about a second) then generates and error
the domain name http://nurseryguideonline.com.au has been verified with google via a html file
the console shows
I can not see the site since it requires a password to view…
The Google Maps API key message in the console is not the issue as presently the key is not required and this is just a warning. Sometime in the future Google is going to require this key as far as I know, they have not even said when. You’re seeing this message because the browser key is not actually being utilized yet. That change will come in the next update. So this warning will go away.
The issue, I suspect from previous experience, is that another plugin or maybe the theme is doing something with images and did not take into account or exclude the Google image map tile images. I’ll need to see the page having to issue to determine the source of the issue and what the fix might be. The login details can be posted here as a private reply.07/01/2016 at 5:59 pm #381157Brett StephensonGuestThis reply has been marked as private.07/01/2016 at 6:39 pm #381159
I removed the google map keys (both server & browser)
I turned off all plugins except connections and tested – problem still exists
and I changed to basic 2016 WP template and with all plug-ins off the problem still exists
let me know if you want admin login07/02/2016 at 11:01 am #381314Steven ZahmKeymaster
Well, it seems Google is actually now requiring the browser and server keys starting June 22 for new sites:
That’s really sad! At least one positive is that OpenStreet Maps will finally get a lot more attention and focus. So it should relatively quickly finally be a real alternative.
A few days ago I did add support for the browser key. I can email an advance copy of the next release, planned for later this week. It’d be great if you could test it just to make sure the browser key does fix the issue.
Let me know.07/02/2016 at 5:41 pm #381372
yep thats fine – I’m no coding wizz so if its a simple update I’d be happy to test – it’ll be sometime before my site is live anyhow07/02/2016 at 6:32 pm #381373
Ok, SO I just bought the cmap template
Are you saying that the map showing then throwing keyerror is a bug needing fixed?07/03/2016 at 6:37 pm #381396
I have put the server & browser APIs back in and have also sent an support post to Google as I think there might be some problem with the verification process – I seem to be going in circles with google (which isn’t all that unusual!)
Let me know if you want me to private post all the logins
I can supply wordpress admin, cPanel, ftp & Google console login if required07/03/2016 at 10:29 pm #381397
These are the java console warnings and error kicked out by the page load.07/04/2016 at 12:32 am #381398
I searched through the files, but my php is very limited and my JS is even worse.
I couldnt find where the google remote script is called, I believe that to be the area that needs editing
