Google Maps Widget

Displays a single image, super-fast loading Google map in a widget. A larger map with all interactive features is available on click in a lightbox.

Who is this plugin for?

For anyone who needs a map on their site in 5 seconds.

Map shows the wrong location

Write the address differently, or more precisely. Make sure you enter the street, town and country name. If necessary enter lat/lng coordinates instead of the address. Use the numeric notation, eg: "40.7127, 74.0059"

How to generate the API key

We understand that creating an API key is frustrating but it takes less than a minute and it's something Google requires. Follow wizard step #1 - login with any Gmail account, click next/confirm a few times with the default settings & copy the key you see on the screen; it's the key you need. Then use wizard step #2, select the same "My Project" project from the list and that's it. Save the key in GMW settings. If you want to protect your API key by using the "Accept requests from these HTTP referrers (web sites)" option in Google Console make sure to add your domain in these two formats: *.mydomain.com/* and mydomain.com/* and wait a few minutes until Google makes the necessary changes.

Thumbnail map works but lightbox won't open on click

You probably have Fancybox JS and CSS files included twice; once by the theme and second time by GMW plugin. Remove one instance of files. If that's not the case then you have a fatal JS error that's preventing execution of other JS code. Hit F12 in Firefox or Chrome and have a look at the debug console. If there are any red lines - it's a fatal error. Open a new thread in the support forums but please bear in mind that support is community based and we do this in our spare time.
