Retrieving Your Google Maps API

Google requires that you obtain an API code in order to use their maps services.  This is a recent requirement that means you must visit their site and have one generated.

 

The first step towards getting your code is to visit this site:

https://developers.google.com/maps/web/

Once you get there, click the  “Get Key” button.

get-key

Select “Create New Project” from the pop-up drowpdown.

create-api

 

Copy your new API key

copy-api

Paste it in Theme Options> Misc Settings and hit “Save Changes.”

paste-api

Check your contact page (if you’ve got a map configured there) or anywhere on your site that’s using a Google Map.  Your inputted address should be reflected on your map.
