Signing up for a Google Maps API Key

Notice: Beginning on June 11, 2018, an API Key is now required for every map project using Google Maps library. You can read more about this Google guideline here.

This how-to will walk you through signing up for a Google Maps API Key and adding that setting to GravityView.

GravityView Maps uses Google Maps to display your entries on a map, as well as process the address details in an entry and convert them into longitude and latitude values.

1. Create your Google Maps API

3. Back on your site, visit the GravityView Settings page

Navigate to Views > Settings on your WordPress site.

Paste the API key into your GravityView Settings

If you don't see the setting, it's because the GravityView Maps plugin isn't activated. Check your Plugins page.

Update your GravityView settings. 

You're all set now with your Google Maps API key!


Note: If you receive a "This page didn’t load Google Maps correctly" message after following these steps, your site is likely running another plugin that loads Google Maps onto the page. See this article with more details.
