Google Map Problem Resolved
After learning about this free Styled Maps add-on via the forum, I downloaded and installed the add-on and in less than 5 minutes I had a working, customizable Google Map on my website. No more "Invalid API Key" errors, no more cussing, no more fussing.
Thank you, thank you, thank you.
Really awesome map addon!
It's great to know others Concrete5 users such as yourself find my add-on useful.
I would hope to add multiple locations at some point in the near future as I can understand this being of importance but unfortunately at this stage I cannot give a time frame.
Thank you for taking the time to leave a review.
It really is appreciated.
I'm glad to hear you have found the Styled maps add-on to be useful.
I appreciate you taking the time to leave a review.
Amazing add on and Developer
This add-on would not have the satellite & street view options if it was not for your questions.
Must have block
(fixed in v1.2.1)
Feedback & support queries like this help to keep this add-on solid for everyone.
And now with the possibility to add a Google API - my lifesaver!
It's nice to know that my work is useful to others and your time to comment really is appreciated.
I'm am also glad you found the API update to be helpful.
Awesome job - keep it simple
Review Support: Fast and nice
Google API knowledge is important to made every Maps Add On work. Sometimes specially using Chrome or Firefox to manage your C5 project you need to activate this 3 API on Google-Side: Google Maps Java API, Geolocation, and most important (to get the list with locations without error massage about invalid location) Google Web Services API ;-)
Thank you for taking the time to review the Styled Maps add-on.
You're right, it is important to make sure that your Google API key is referencing the correct libraries.
With a large number of library options available to developers it is hard to know which library an application actually requires and in some cases it may require multiple libraries being activated on your API key, just as you mentioned.
The Styled Maps add-on makes use of the 'Places' library so to make things a bit easier and clear cut for users I have put together a very simple 4 step tutorial with images on how to get an API key that will work for Styled Maps.
Again, Thank you for the review and API tips for other users, It is very much appreciated.
Better than the default Google Maps block
Great features like adding WYSIWYG content and logo to your marker, in addition to using different skins to better suit the colour scheme of a given theme.
I agree with previous comments that this could be improved by allowing for a custom marker - but that's not to take away from the other benefits of this add-on!
Thank you for your glowing review, it really is appreciated.
Just one thing, you mentioned that the add-on could be improved by allowing for a custom marker.
The Styled Maps add-on allows you to add any image as your marker by default so I can only guess that you may be describing a completely different feature all together?
If there is something that you would like to see added, please feel free to get in touch with me and we can discuss it further.
