Hi there,

I’ve split your thread as the other had been marked resolved.

Looking over your site you don’t have any Google API key set within Event Espresso -> Venues -> Google Maps.

Google now require all usage of maps to use an API which you must setup within your google account and add to the site.

Here are the steps for getting setup with Google Maps:

1) Go to WP-admin (WP dashboard) –> Event Espresso –> Venues –> Google Maps

2) Towards the top of the page, you will see a new field for the Google Maps API key. There is a link that says click here to get an API key. Go ahead and click on it.

3) You’ll be prompted to login to your Google account. If you do not have one, then take a moment to create one and then login

4) After logging in, you’ll be asked to accept the terms and conditions. Go ahead and do that and then click Agree and Continue:

5) On the following page, you’ll be asked to enter a name for the project. Go ahead and do so and then click Create:

6) Allow a few moments for the API Key to be created and then your key will appear:

7) Copy it and then switch to your other browser tab for the Google Maps settings for Event Espresso and paste it within the Google Maps API Key field and then save changes
