Store Locator, Google now requires API Key


Recommended Posts

A recent google maps update now requires the creation of an API key to access the maps feature.

For a time, URL's previously used to access the map will continue to function, but new stores will require their own key.


This results in the store map feature;

Preferences => Store Contacts => Show simplified store locator=NO

first showing the map briefly, then an error message;


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

js?sensor=true&region=AU:32 Google Maps API error: MissingKeyMapError https://developers.google.com/maps/documentation/javascript/error-messages#missing-key-map-error


A guide to obtaining and implementing the key is here






But, I've no idea how to get it into Presta Shop, I can't find where the maps function is called from.


Obviously the interface is going to need to be altered in future to allow a key to be entered.  For the time being, does anyone know where it can be edited in?

It's relatively simple if you've set up the API correctly.

The code is found in: \controllers\front\StoresController.php
Look for the code:

Add ?key=[YOUR API KEY] after //maps.google.com/maps/api/js &plus any other parameters.

Hope that helps?
