There was another thread where someone said this:
OH wait, now I’ve got it. I also had to go into the browser api key
and add the full domain address, not just in the Domain Verification
I too cannot get the Map to load. I have entered the API key. I have checked and unchecked the Google Maps API 3.xx to disable then enable it. Saved. Refreshed. Cleared cache. But I still keep getting:
Oops! Something went wrong.
So I’m guessing that the poster who gave those vague instructions I saw on the thread and have pasted up top is the solution to my problem. However, I don’t have the least idea what he/she means by what he/she said. Could it be explained in a more layman’s type way? I don’t have a domain verification tab on my dashboard. I see where I can enter a browser api key but I have no idea where to get a browswer api key as Google is only giving me one api key, not a choice of server or browser.
Thanks for any help you can give me.03/27/2017 at 11:25 am #417331Steven ZahmKeymaster
Could you give me a login to your directory page since it requires one. I’d like to see the browser console to see what the error message that Google is giving you so I can give you a more precise answer.
When setting up your API keys, create two. Name one the Server key and name the other the Browser key. The Server key can be used as is. The browser key needs to have a referer restriction add. Your referrer should be set to:
http://contemporaryquilling.org/. The preceding http:// and trailing / are important and should not be left off otherwise your Browser Key may not work because it will not be able to validate the referrer.
Hope this helps, let me know.
ps. The other user was confusing the domain verification with adding a referer restriction to an API key.
