  1. I am not as smart as most and building my own website even with a template has proved to be challenging from time to time. This maps problem was driving me nuts but the plug-in saved the day. THANK YOU!!!!

  2. Thank you dear, your plugin fixed the maps.

  3. THANK YOU. Life saver plugin. The best.

  4. Hi, I used the plugin to set the API, but my page still shows
    “Oops! Something went wrong.
    This page didn’t load Google Maps correctly. See the JavaScript console for technical details.”

    what else can I do?

    1. Hi,

      did you follow this?

      Are we talking about maps from GeoDirectory or from another theme/plugin?

      If it is for GeoDirectory please open a support ticket in our forum.

      Let us know,


  5. Thank you, your plugin fixed the maps.

    i have another issue with sliders which don’t appear now, but i can’t get an access to the support (couldn’t find an option “sync forum access” on the profile page, although i have a membership).

    1. Hi,

      there’s no need to sync forum access since January. You just need to login with your username and password and post in the forum.
