Google Maps is not working

  • I have a custom post type with a google map field. I am also working locally but I pushed out to a staging server and the same issue still persists.

    The map loads in the backend. But when I try to add an address it says this page can’t load Google Maps Correctly.

    I have the api key stored in my functions file as well but this shows up in the console: This API project is not authorized to use this API. Please ensure this API is activated in the Google Developers Console.

    Another Note: I have the domain verified with Google search console.

    From what I have read these are the ones that should be active.
    Google API’s Active
    – Geocoding
    – Geolocation
    – Maps Embed
    – Maps JavaScript
    – Maps Static

    If anyone has any information on this please let me know.

  • Same problem here with ACF Pro 5.8.4.
    I had activated

    • Maps Embed API
    • Maps JavaScript API

    Now I deeded to activate

    • Places API

    ,too. So I have

    • Maps Embed API
    • Maps JavaScript API
    • Places API

    Works.

    This is the way I load the script in my functions.php:

    wp_register_script('aa_js_googlemaps_script',  'https://maps.googleapis.com/maps/api/js?v=3.exp&key=XXX'); // with Google Maps API fix
    		wp_enqueue_script('aa_js_googlemaps_script');

    and

    function my_acf_init() {	
    	acf_update_setting('google_api_key', 'XXX');
    }
    add_action('acf/init', 'my_acf_init');
