    Do both API keys have to be in the same project?

    I already had a Maps key from another plugin, so I used that, then created a separate project for the Civics API. However, the map didn’t load. So, I enabled the Maps API in the same project as the Civics API, and now the map loads, but the plugin returns “Can’t find the address.”

    Thoughts?

    There are a number of reasons for this error that could have nothing to do with APIs. Please do the following two things:

    #1 Please update to version 3.0.1 which was just released.
    #2 Go to the main plugin page and scroll down until you come to the Trouble Shooting section. Please work through these steps and see if any of them fix your issue.

    If you still can not get it to work, please report back and we’ll get to the bottom of it.

    So, I thought I’d check the Javascript console, to see if it showed any errors. And it did!

    Apparently, when I created the Maps API in the CongressLookup project, something got munged in the “enable” step. The Javascript console said “This API is not enabled.” So, clicked the link embedded in the error, Enabled, and all is now working!

    AND, I was pleased to discover that the plugin does state leges as well! Woot! Now I don’t have to use two different plugins, one for Federal and one for state. Very cool!

    Thanks for the neat plugin! Solved two problems, and is easy to use. Definitely a keeper!

    Ahhh… Yeah, that “enable” step has tripped up several people. Glad you got it sorted out! And, you’re welcome 😀 Please consider giving us a review.
