    OMG. I can’t believe I did that. Thank you. I fixed that. Still broken.

    What now? I’ll have to hide the map for now until this gets sorted out. 🙁

    Fixed it. I had to have a friend help me. He created a new one. He thinks I was using the wrong type of API. I was using a Maps javascript API. Not sure what he chose, but it’s working now.

    By the way, now that Google Maps is working, the neighborhood still is not. So I guess I’ll have to turn that off.

    I know it works for you, but if it doesn’t work for me, it won’t work for lots of others. I’ll need to turn it off.

    I cannot get past your flywheel login.
    That also may be the reason the Google API does not work well.
    Try it on a live site first.
    Let us know.
    Thanks

    The maps works fine now. It’s just the neighborhood that does not. See my original question before we got in the Maps weeds. The Flywheel login is flywheel / katandmouse

    Go to https://supportyourtown.online/wp-admin/post.php?post=130&action=edit&classic-editor and click on “Set Address On Map”.
    You should see the marker move to the correct position and the neighborhood will be filled in.
    Works on the front end too.

    That’s so cool! It works now. So the key is you have to click “Set Address on Map” first. Problem is no one will know to do that.

    Doesn’t appear that I have control over the order of those form fields without getting in the code. I recommend you move the set address on map button above neighborhood in that form.

    Or can you change or add to those instructions by the Neighborhood field? Currently, it says “Click on above field and type to filter list.” I don’t know what that’s about because I don’t see a list there. It should at least say “Press the Set Address on Map button to see available neighborhoods.”

    Until you do that, or if you don’t, how can I fix this usability problem on my end?

    Thanks.

    I just entered a new listing and the neighborhood showed up fine without pressing that button. So I think it’s fine. Perhaps it didn’t work before because I was editing an existing listing. Thanks. Mark this resolved.

    “Click on above field and type to filter list.”
    That means “Click on above field and start typing a few letters of your neighborhood to find your neighborhood in the list.”

    “Set Address on Map”
    Without clicking that button, the marker on the maps will not be on the correct position anywhere on your site.

    You can change those wordings using the language file: https://wpgeodirectory.com/docs-v2/translation/overview/

    Thanks
