How-to: Create Google Maps API key

The Google Maps widget requires a Google Maps API key to work. Please follow the steps below to create one:


1.  Please create your Maps API key via this link. And click the Continue button (this could take a minute).


2. Enter a name for your key, click "HTTP Referrers", add the URL of your website and click the 'Create' button 

Please use the examples below to add your website. Replace yourdomain.com with your domain name. Each in a new input field.

*.yourdomain.com/*
http://yourdomain.com/*
www.yourdomain.com/*
yourdomain.com/*


3. Copy the API key you see in the modal.


4. Navigate to the API Manager and click the 'Google Maps JavaScript API' link (see above image). 


5. Make sure you click the 'Enable' button. If you only see 'Disable' you can leave the page

If you're using the Physio theme please also enable the API for Geolocation and Geocoding. If these API's are not enabled the Google Map widget won't work.
