I didn’t end up paying anything. Sorry, I can’t remember other than putting the api key into the settings.
I had to put in CC information but it does not charge until you have some large number of calls to the API. 10,000 or some high number like that.
Ugh, it was working for awhile after I installed the plugin, but now it’s not.
Got the google api with my credit card entered – no joy.
Got the plug in from Wp Directory – No Joy.
Something like this should not take hours to debug.
Does the Bing Maps have these issues?
It only worked for me once I removed the API codes from the Event Plugin and only used the API in the google API key plugin. hope that helps.
No joy on that either.
I generated a new api key using the plug in and entered it in both places and that worked. Shouldn’t be such an issue. Thanks for the suggestion mrlandtrust
Well now after just 10 minutes the map shows –
This page can’t load Google Maps correctly.
Just thinking about disabling this feature. Too much time spent.
Which is odd because we did the credit card thing and I only pulled the map up twice.
I also received the request quota message, and this is a site that is not accessed that much, so I’m not sure what the message actually means. Since there is a link on the event to the map, it just doesn’t seem worthwhile to spend the time trying to make it display on the event itself. It was a “nice to have” feature, but seeing that I’m not alone in having issues with it, I think I will spend my efforts on other things.
I got it resolved. Clicking the link that was in Firebug took me to a Google page w here I could inspect API project in details. Saw that there were two Api Keys and I deleted one and now we’re working: Apparently there was one api key associated with the credit card and one that was not ,though that makes little sense. Anyway, look at your page in firebug and find a similar link and see if you don’t have see the multiple api key issue that I did.
Yes, in theory that was the solution back then. Many of us followed those instructions, but still did not have a loading map. That includes making sure ALL API’s were enabled. The plugin was the only solution that appeared to work…
For testing purposes, I went ahead and placed the API key back in the events plugin and it is working again. It appears the developer fixed something in an update…
SO – it appears you do not need to use the work-around anymore.
@mrlandtrust Thank you for your response. I have the free version of The Events Calendar 4.6.23. I had taken the api key out of the calendar’s settings on some earlier advice, installed the API for Google Maps plugin, and while it worked for awhile, it then didn’t. Now, today, after putting it back in, it does! We’ll see how long it lasts! Thank you.
Well, that lasted for about 5 minutes. I wend to another event, and all there was was a gray box. I cleared the cache, no luck. I went back to the original event, and got a message (should have gotten a screenshot) overlaying the map, something about google maps not being able to display it correctly. I refreshed, then got the gray box. Arrghhh! @mrlandtrust do you have the free or paid version of events?
I have the free version…
I did not disable the google API (plugin).
