Google Map API key missing error

Started by: Stylemix Themes August 14, 2016 - 11:02

Active domains created before June 22, 2016, continue to be able to access the Google Maps JavaScript API, Static Maps API, and Street View Image API without an API key. They are not affected by keyless access being unavailable for new domains - https://developers.google.com/maps/pricing-and-plans/standard-plan-2016-update.

Here you can find a detailed tutorial for generating API Keys - Get API Key

For customers with active domains created before June 22, 2016, who are already paying for daily quota above the free limit for Maps JavaScript API, Static Maps API, or Street View Image API: you are not impacted by this change.

For customers with active domains created before June 22, 2016, who are exceeding 25,000 map loads per day using Maps JavaScript API, Static Maps API, or Street View Image API, but not currently charged for overages: you are not subject to billing until October 12, 2016. After October 12, 2016, these domains will be charged for map loads in excess of the 25,000 free daily limit, if you have billing enabled. If you choose not to enable billing and you exceed the daily limit, map loads above 25,000 will receive an error and the API will cease to function for the rest of the day.

So in order to solve this problem, it needs to update the theme to the last version and enter your Google Map API key under Customize -> Site settings -> Google API settings.

For themes which use VC Ultimate Addons plugin it needs to set up API settings under Ultimate -> Modules -> Google API Settings
