We understand that creating a Google Maps API key is frustrating but it takes less than a minute and it’s something Google requires.
Follow wizard step #1 – login with any Gmail account, click next/confirm a few times with the default settings & copy the Google Maps API key you see on the screen; it’s the key you need. Then use wizard step #2, select the same “My Project” project from the list and that’s it. Save the key in Maps Widget for Google Maps settings.
If you want to protect your API key by using the “Accept requests from these HTTP referrers (web sites)” option in Google Console make sure to add your domain in these two formats:
mydomain.com/* and wait a few minutes until Google makes the necessary changes.
If that didn’t help read our detailed guide on how to create a Google Maps API key.
You probably have Fancybox JS and CSS files included twice; once by the theme and second time by Maps Widget for Google Maps plugin. Remove one instance of files. If that’s not the case then you have a fatal JS error that’s preventing execution of other JS code. Hit F12 in Firefox or Chrome and have a look at the debug console. If there are any red lines – it’s a fatal error.
