Google Maps Not Working

Sometime you may notice Oops! Something went wrong. message on your Google Maps section or Google Maps API error: MissingKeyMapError, suddenly showing in your browser console?

The answer comes directly from a Google employee:


We’ve just announced some changes to the Google Maps APIs authentication and usage limits: http://googlegeodevelopers.blogspot.com.au/2016/06/building-for-scale-updates-to-google.html

Usage of the Google Maps APIs now requires a key.

If you are using the Google Maps API on localhost or your domain was not active prior to June 22nd, 2016, it will require a key going forward. To fix this problem, please see the Google Maps APIs documentation to get a key and add it to your application: https://developers.google.com/maps/documentation/javascript/get-api-key

Are you using the Maps API from localhost or a recently launched domain, or was your domain active prior to today? Just wanting to check, since all previously active domains should have been grandfathered for keyless usage, so a previously active domain getting the MissingKeyMapError may be a bug.


In other words, if you weren’t already using Maps API on your domain before June 22nd, 2016, you will be forced to get a API key to get rid of this nasty error.

You can follow this instruction below to fix the problem :

  1. You will need to get Google Maps API key. You can register Google Maps API key here.
  2. After you get Google Maps API key, then go to Jkreativ Dashboard > General Setting > Google Map . Insert your API key on Google API Key input field.screenshot-2016-12-15-10-43-30
