Issues withe Map 2 staxks Doobox


(Paule Thomas) #1

Hello,
I put a Google map with Map2 from Doobox.
I created the API key and I entered the code in the dedicated location in Map2, and the address in “location”.
The plan appears correctly when I do a check with “preview page in Firefox”, but when I publish the site, the plan is displayed half a second and a message appears "Small problem … An error occurred Google Maps did not load correctly on this page For more technical information on this error, please consult the JavaScript console. "

I have no idea where the problem comes from (the site is in https)
Help, please!
Paule

You will need to give us a URL to check what might be going on.

Google isn’t liking the api key:

Geocoding Service: This API project is not authorized to use this API.  For more information on authentication and Google Maps JavaScript API services please see: https://developers.google.com/maps/documentation/javascript/get-api-key

Might have a look at this post:

Thank you.
I guess I only have to write to Doobox… because I do not know how to replace their key with mine.

You just need to go back to the google console and enable geocoding api for the key you created:

https://developers.google.com/maps/documentation/javascript/geocoding

The other non defined error in the page normally means you have not enabled billing at google for the key either.

The Google Maps thing became such a pain that I now use InStacks’ OpenStreetMap stack for all maps.

Oh thank you! I will watch
It’s not too difficult to use?

OpenStreetMap? No. It uses latitude and longitude for the location but there are plenty of free web sites that will convert a post code or zip code into L&L
