you have a bad API key for your domain, the api key you are using:

ABQIAAAAhgaihhhzhUNRNPoA2_7aAhTDbVKM1_ueqQSBtmdAnXXz_RNTvBT-XZ15WAnQuYe1wA2oeCFBZFg2JQ


the API Key google generates for the domain:
www.energy-studio.co.uk

is:

ABQIAAAA6WPOHGcEKA55UdVGw-rYERQ0NQvvzDhgj2-kgXMJmZtyWbFmkxSk5PU4gAF2XCux1oMS3Qckk3vM5g




change the following code:

<script type="text/javascript" src="http://maps.google.com/maps?file=api&v=2&key=ABQIAAAAhgaihhhzhUNRNPoA2_7aAhTDbVKM1_ueqQSBtmdAnXXz_RNTvBT-XZ15WAnQuYe1wA2oeCFBZFg2JQ">/*wagmp*/</script>




to use the correct api key:

<script type="text/javascript" src="http://maps.google.com/maps?file=api&v=2&key=ABQIAAAA6WPOHGcEKA55UdVGw-rYERQ0NQvvzDhgj2-kgXMJmZtyWbFmkxSk5PU4gAF2XCux1oMS3Qckk3vM5g">/*wagmp*/</script>

Thank you sir. I'll do that now. I don't understand why the API code is wrong though as I only generated it on Saturday.

Thanks anyway.

Hello,

I've just replaced that line you suggested but it hasn't worked. The error message doesn't show now but neither does the google map.

Puzzled!

the map js file attached to this page is for wagmp_map_1:
<script type="text/javascript" src="google_javascript/wagmp_map_1.js">/*wagmp*/</script>

but the map div is for wagmp_map_2
<div id="wagmp_map_2" style="width: 300px; height: 300px;">


change the div id to wagmp_map_1
<div id="wagmp_map_1" style="width: 300px; height: 300px;">

Thank you sir. Yes - that worked.

I don't remember there being a setting in the extension asking for a 'div id' though.

Just in case it happens again when I build for a client, how do I make the extension generate the correct 'div id' if I there isn't a setting in the wizard for me to enter one?

the div id is created based on the map, if you create another map a new JS file will be created using the namer google_javascript/wagmp_map_3.js which will use the div ID wagmp_map_3


my guess is that you added a second map to the page at one time which generated the wagmp_map_2 div, then deleted it from the page but deleted the wagmp_map_1 instead of the wagmp_map_2 div.

Yes - that would make sense. I can't remember properly but I think I ran the extension a couple of times owing to it not working the first time with the API I received last Saturday. Owing to it not working, I guess I tried it a second time. And, then came here to ask why it wasn't working.

Thanks again.
