Google Maps Not Working

Post by austtr » Fri Apr 16, 2021 10:48 pm

Refer site: https://fijianclassifieds.com/

The error message “This page can't load Google Maps correctly.” (wth darkened background and “for development” watermark) is showing at all Google Map locations. I'm confident the setup is correct:

- A Google Cloud project was created and is enabled
- The API key was created
- API key is restricted to just the site URL
- Billing is enabled (paid not free)
- Billing is linked to valid credit card
- API key was added to SP Page Builder configuration

- All caches cleared

The errors showing in Javascript Console are shown in the attached image. Perhaps someone can interpret them?

All help appreciated.

I'm not sure which page you're referring to with the Google maps - not seeing maps on any page.

I assume you are signed up for the paid service for Google Maps. If not that would explain the "development" watermark across the maps.

I reported this topic as solved several hours ago. The OP has fixed their problem.

To see Google Maps in operation at the website, click any of the "classified ads" on the site's home page; then look at the resultant page (on the right side of the result) and you will see the Google Map in a module there. None of the pages I looked at had a watermark on the map. None of the forum moderators has responded to my report to mark this topic as solved.

Complaint dismissed. The report was submitted at 2AM AEST, which is close to bedtime at least for our Global Moderators in Europe :)

Thanks, @toivo. I guess you are one forum moderator who responds to these things. 02:00 AEST is about 16:00 (4:00 pm) in Europe ... which is a strange bedtime. :laugh: In the past 8½ hours since I reported the matter, I've seen three other forum moderators visit the forum. It wasn't a complaint (or a protest); I was informing @AMurray about the current situation. The topic is solved and that's all we need to say

As the OP, my apologies for the delay in posting this update... a broken tie rod left me stranded a long way from home and took up most of the day!

The project is built on a commercial component plus template and it turns out that the original install did not include the latest updates. Once I managed to escalate the problem past the vendor support desk it was an easy fix.

Thanks to all who looked at this.... apologies if you arrived after the fix was in place.
