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.
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 :
- You will need to get Google Maps API key. You can register Google Maps API key here.
- After you get Google Maps API key, then go to
Jobplanet Dashboard > General Setting > Google Map Key. Insert your API key on Google Map Key input field.
