Google Maps Plugin causes white blank screen after activating

When I tried to activate this plugin, I'm getting a blank white screen, when I rename the folder, then refresh my plugin directory, i'm able to get back in. What could be causing this. I'm running 4.3 WP version.

    Hi @Anthony,

    Sorry to hear of the problem you are having.

    I have tested it on my test site using latest version of Google Maps plugin and WordPress 4.3, it worked fine for me without any issue.

    Can you please try temporary enabling WP_DEBUG mode? To do this, just go to wp-config.php include this:


    You might already have a line for WP_DEBUG, so just make sure it's set to true.

    For information on this, checkout this article.

    Let me know what errors if any you are getting when you face this issue.

    This can be due to plugin/theme conflict on your site.

    You can just try on your development site temporary using default WordPress theme like Twenty Fifteen and temporary deactivating all other plugins and activating them one by one as displayed in the following flowchart to know which theme/plugin is conflicting if any.

    Kind Regards,
