Google Maps not working (RefererNotAllowedMapError)

I’m experiencing a problem with my Google Maps SO widget not working. I’ve entered a JS API key, but still no luck.

    Hi Toby,

    According to the error code reported from Google for that page (which can be checked via the browsers console), you seem to be using an API key not setup for Google Maps. Could you check your Google Console settings to ensure you’ve set it up correctly? You can check that here.

    I enabled all the services associated with Google Maps under my API key and registered the domain. Still no luck. Ideas?

    Hi Toby,

    Google is reporting that the key you’ve used is invalid. Could you please check it?

    Thank for taking a look at this Alex.

    So I went back to my Google console and got a Google Maps Javascript API Key. IT enabled several other API keys (Directions, Distance Matrix, etc.)

    I copied that API code into my Google Maps widget and still nothing. I’m sure it’s something simple but I am missing something.

    Hi Toby,

    The map is now reporting RefererNotAllowedMapError. So this means that you’ve set up a whitelist of referer’s for this project and your domain isn’t on it. The likely cause of this issue is using crownofthecarolinas.org over http://www.crownofthecarolinas.org. I would suggest reviewing your referrer project settings.

    Bravo! Corrected that part and we now have working maps. Many thanks, my friend!
