Hi Peter,

You will need to get an API key to use Google Maps. The error in the browser says: “Google Maps API error: MissingKeyMapError”, which means: The Google Maps API script will not display a map when the API key is missing.

Here are the steps that you take to get and set the API key from Google Maps:

1) Log into your WordPress Dashboard
2) Go to Event Espresso > Venues > Google Maps
3) Click on the link that says “An API key is now required to use the Google Maps API: click here to get an API key”
4) Log into your Google account and follow their instructions to get a key.
5) Copy the API key and paste it in the Google Maps API Key field on the Event Espresso > Venues > Google Maps page.

The Google API key field was added in version 4.9.2+

Your site is currently using version 4.8.43 so does not have the option.

You will need to update to that latest version of EE and run through the steps Josh posted above for Google Maps to work.
