Google requires everyone to have a valid API key if you wish to display a Google Map. The key can be quickly created from Google’s API Console.

IMPORTANT NOTE!!

Google Cloud billing account required.

Don’t worry – Google still offers a $200 free monthly usage which is more than enough for 99% of the users.

Once the API key has been generated, the Google Maps Javascript API enabled and a Google Billing account setup and linked to your new project, the key should be active and ready for use!

PASTE THE GOOGLE API KEY INTO THE DESIGNATED FIELD WITHIN THE LODGIX PLUGIN

  1. Log into WordPress

  2. Go to Properties > Lodgix Settings > Maps

  3. Paste your Google API key into the Google Maps API key field

  4. Click button to "Save All Changes"

If the maps are generating an error. then one of two things has occurred:

  1. A google billing profile was not established...or...

  2. The Maps Javascript API was not enabled for your API Key,
