Custom Google search is not working. It is throwing an error: “Unauthorized access to internal API. Please refer to https://support.google.com/customsearch/answer/4542055“
I’ve tried deactivating the plugin and reactivating, no success.
I found this on WordPress.org posted 6 days ago:
In addition, Custom Google Search Help says this:
“The Custom Search Element API 1.0, which was deprecated in 2012 in favor of API 2.0, is now no longer maintained. API 1.0 will stop working on December 4, 2017.
You can check if you’re using the 1.0 version by looking at the code on your search page for a call to google.search.CustomSearchControl. If you are, read on:”
I checked the code and ours does say: google.search.CustomSearchControl
It also doesn’t work on Energy Institute. I was looking for other sites that use this plugin.
