Powerful search

The SobiPro Search is one of the features that make SobiPro a very powerful tool for site visitors. Almost each field can be configured to show up in the search form.

One for all

With SobiPro you can create as many directories and any other content types on your site as you need with only one single SobiPro component installation.

Responsive

Bring your directory with you on any device. Due to Bootstrap powered templates, you can show your content on any device out of the box

Hi,

I updated a website and now my google maps (Geomap) starts to load correctly for a second then crashes with the message:

Ooops! Something went wrong
This page didn't load Google Maps correctly. See the JavaScript console for technical details.


The console error tells me that I do not have a Googlemap api key. After hunting around it seems that this year Google has started insisting on each user/website having a unique api key.

So I eventually registered my own api key through Google and pasted it into the Sobipro Geomap field settings. Nothing has changed; same error message, no map. Anyone else had any experience with this?

This is what I did which worked for me:

1. For the module go to:
Extensions > Modules > SobiPro GeoMap Module
Then in the field for Google API URL put in https://maps.googleapis.com/maps/api/js?key=YOUR-API-KEY&callback
replacing YOUR-API-KEY with your actual API key

2. Also add the API key to the SobiPro Component:
Components > SobiPro
Select your Section
Then go to Section Configuration > Fields Manager > Select the geomap field
Then I added my API to 3 areas:
2.1 General Field Settings > Google URL: https://maps.googleapis.com/maps/api/js?key=YOUR-API-KEY&callback
2.2 Search Field Settings > Script URL: https://maps.googleapis.com/maps/api/js?key=YOUR-API-KEY&callback
2.3 Search Field Settings > API Key: YOUR-API-KEY

    Same here, I updated Sobi component to the latest version, and the Joomla core, added my API code (which works elsewhere) but I get a message "This page cannot load Google Maps correctly with "for development purposes only" repeated seven times across the map.

    I have this issue on two different sites using Sobi with the sobi geomap module.

    Is this fixed in the latest version of the geomap module and requiring a new purchase of it for the fix?

    Can you provide any more details on what " Do not forget to add the API key to the module AND the field! " means? I only see one place to add it and I'm doing that. If there's a second place it also has to be added then please let me know where both locations are. A reference to some documentation on how to do this would be fantastic.
    Otherwise the problem I was having seems to be a plain old bug in the SobiPro GeoMaps module. See https://www.sigsiu.net/support/community-area/will-this-be-addressed-in-geomap-before-google-starts-making-changes-11th-june#reply-12143 for how I worked around it.
