I always get a Google Maps error (GEOCODE)

If you get a “Geocoder failed due to: REQUEST_DENIED” error, then right click on yoursite, click on inspect and open the browser console. Reload your store locator page, and watch out for Google Errors. An example below:Example above shows this error.

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

Also please make sure you have setup your API Key correctly in the Google Console:

  • Allow your domain to access the key
  • Enable: Google Places API Web Service
  • Enable: Google Maps JavaScript
  • Enable: Google Maps Geocoding

If this does not work – open up the developer console. Reload the page and look into the console error.

    You have included the Google Maps API multiple times on this page. This may cause unexpected errors.

    Hi,
    yes I enabled.
    if you go to the link you can see the error in the console.

    I have also problem with the modal view….the page is totally black…(there’s black background set) even if manually removed it’s not usable.

    can you have a look at it?

    thank you

    Hello,

    I cannot get it to work, when I open Chrome DevTools console I get these errors:

    “You have included the Google Maps JavaScript API multiple times on this page. This may cause unexpected errors.”

    This WP installation is also using Google-Analytics-Dashboard-for-WP

    Which seems to include the same javascript for Google Maps. What can be done to avoid this conflict? Thank you!

    I can’t get my API to work …

    I have followed the steps of several tutorials and I don’t get it to work.

    I have followed these steps:

    1- I have gone to google cloud platform
    2- Create API
    3- I have chosen the second option HTTP referrers (web sites) – I have tried both putting the url of my website and leaving it blank.
    4- I create the API and enter it in the corresponding field of the plugin.

    This does not work…

    Geolocation API is UP
    Maps JavaScript API is UP

    Any idea what it could be?
