Google has disabled use of Maps API for this application. (6 posts)

    The map was working fine. However, recently the following error message pops up and only the address associated with the API key appears where the map used to be. If I click on that address (it's a hyperlink), I am taken to Google maps where the address icon appears on the map.

    Any ideas?

    Sorry, the error message is:

    Yea, I'm getting the same error. I wonder if it has to do with Java? Here's the error I'm receiving...

    Google has disabled use of the Maps API for this application. The provided key is not a valid Google API Key, or it is not authorized for the Google Maps Javascript API v3 on this site. If you are the owner of this application, you can learn about obtaining a valid key here: https://developers.google.com/maps/documentation/javascript/tutorial#api_key

    Okay, I was able to fix the error by adding ONLY the contacts page in the Referers: section. The google maps now works and no errors.

    Soon we are going to release another update that's not going to require Google maps API anymore.
    However, you might be using your API key on a site that's not authorized so. You need to check your Google API dashboard to see what's conflicting.

    Also as you mentioned here, there is a link for the error, check that.

    I am now having the same issue as creatorsdream but am not sure how to fix it. Also having an issue with the home page slide show. Both items just started to happen and I am stumped. Consider me an ultimate novice in this area. Help for either would be greatly appreciated.
