Google API Keys
For our SLP WordPress plugin users there has been a notable change in the management of Google API Keys.
We now support a Geocoding Key and a Browser Key. The Browser key is used to display the map and handle user-input addresses during a location search. The Geocoding key is used on your WordPress server to geocoding locations you’ve entered via the Google API.
Store Locator Plus for WordPress requires the user of the plug-in to obtain their own Google Map API key as described in our Getting Started Guide.
