FAQ

I filled in all the fields correctly but I can’t see any map preview. Why?

Several answers are possible:
A) You have not entered the correct API keys in the plugin settings page, or the keys have expired or have been disabled. Check if they have been saved and if they are still active;
B) There is an error in the fields filled in, try to check again if you have entered particular characters that are not recognized by the web map systems or if you have selected an option not available for the chosen map service (for example you have selected the “Dark” map theme that is not available with Google Maps);
C) The chosen web map service does not correctly recognize the address entered for the center of the map or for the markers; try to get the geographic coordinates of these points and insert them in the appropriate fields.
