Support » Plugin: BP Distance Search » ERROR: Geocoder status: REQUEST_DENIED and search issue

  • Hi Andrea,
    Great job!
    Now I have 2 issue:
    1) when I click on location icon have this error: ERROR: Geocoder status: REQUEST_DENIED
    2) when I’m searching for distance the result is always all users. I have 7 user with different location. Instead if I search with ‘contain’ working well
    thanks

    Hi webedesign,

    1) A few suggestions, taken from https://developers.google.com/places/web-service/faq

    The “status”: “REQUEST_DENIED” is returned by the Places API when:

    * You have not activated the Places API in the Google Cloud Platform Console.

    * The key parameter (you entered in BP Distance Search) does not match your API key in the Google Cloud Platform Console.

    * Your API key has not been correctly set up in the Google Cloud Platform Console:

    ** If you are using a browser-restricted API key, check that your allowed referer(s) are correct.

    ** If you are using a server-restricted API key, check that your allowed IP(s) are correct.

    ** API keys with Android or iOS restrictions are not supported. Please use a generic (unrestricted) API key, or a key with browser or server restrictions.

    2) Do you see any errors in your browser’s console, when you edit a member’s location?

    Another suggestion: when you use BP Distance Search, deactivate any other Google maps plugins, because they can conflict and cause strange problems.
