Issue with Google Maps plugin

Howdy

We've installed the Google Maps plugin on one of our sites within the http://www.gpadviser.com.au multisite - the site is http://mytops.com.au/.

The plugin is throwing an error - see the map on the http://mytops.com.au/contact-us/ page.

It looks as though there's a problem with the Google Maps API key?

We're running the latest version of the plugin 2.9.0.8.

Please have a look into it and let us know what the problem is.

Cheers
Clair

    Hi TheDMA , hope you had a wonderful day.

    I checked your issue. It's because of Google API Policy change. They said:
    If you are using the Google Maps API on localhost or your domain was not active prior to June 22nd, 2016, it will require a key going forward. To fix this problem, please see the Google Maps APIs documentation to get a key and add it to your application: https://developers.google.com/maps/documentation/javascript/get-api-key

    I could not regenerate the issue on my test site, but I can confirm this on your site. So I'm flagging our developer regarding this and I believe, he will come up with a solution very soon.

    Please keep in mind, our developers work round the clock and they have to deal with lots of critical issues and other things. So it may take a little while for them to check this and provide a workaround.

    Have a nice day. Cheers!

    Hello TheDMA

    Hope you are well today and won't mind me chiming here. :slight_smile:

    There is one updated temporary fix which you can utilise on your site if you wish to. :slight_smile: I've attached it with this post, just replace plugin folder in /wp-content/ directory with files attached. Then,

    #1) Generate key for Google Project ( Instructions are given in option's description )
    #2) Add that key in the Settings > Google Maps > Options > Google Maps API Key ( Take a look at this screenshot )

    #3) Wait for 1 hour( Google takes this much time to activate created API key )

    Let us know how it goes. :slight_smile:
    Best Regards,
    Milan
