Google Maps API Issue

Post by WebspressoDev » Tue Jun 05, 2018 12:22 pm

Am helping a friend out with her website.
She wants a Google Map installed on her contact page.
I have never used Joomla before.

I tried adding the Google Map from "Add Items" It shows "This page can't load Google Maps correctly."
Is this to do with the API key or something wrong in Joomla?

Thanks

Often easier to use a plugin for google maps like (https://extensions.joomla.org/extension ... oogle-map/) .

Thanks GWS, this is the plugin I am using but still is giving me issues.
Shows the GMap with "For Development Purposes" and doesn't allow the location to be saved.
I have input a API key from Google but still no luck.

Any ideas?

Thank you

Is the API key for the domain you are using?

Yes, we generated a new one as the Google Maps API page changed
