Just updated my plugins and WordPress this morning. The map is showing as blank now but the search form is showing just fine.
When I went to Firefox and used the Firebug console I received the following error when I refreshed the page:
What do I need to do to fix this issue?

If you are receiving that warning then there is another plugin or possibly your theme that is also trying to Load Google maps and that will break SLP Map
Also if any Plugin or theme is forcing their own version of jquery, or a lower than 1.11 version , that is outside of the WP rules and best practices..
perhaps updating to WP 4.5 brought that to light and they may have made those conflicts more apparent.I believe your issue is with this theme:
Inspect the Console and the error and it points to your Nivoslider:April 14, 2016 at 12:17 PM #40417
The Google Maps No API warning is a non-issue. You can get an API key and put it in under the General / Server tab but it is not necessary.
If you can figure out what plugin (or WP Theme option, or CDN / cache / minification process) is doing that we can probably help you figure out what script is breaking in WP 4.5.
SLP is fully tested in WP 4.5. I have contributed to 4.5 (and 4.4) WordPress Core and have been testing the 4.5 release for nearly 4 months through each-and-every iteration while developing updates for my plugin.
- Deactivated all plugins. Then refreshed my Firefox browser. No change in the content of the console window.
- Reactivated plugins.
- Deactivated our Cloudflare CDN. All that did was make it so our site would not show up because of a DNS error.
- Reactivated Cloudflare CDN. Website showing up again, but still not sure if CDN is the offender.
- Changed to the main theme that my child theme is based on. Map does not work.
Does my logic sound correct on this given the tests I performed?
The last thing I think I need to do is contact my hosting provider and find out how to disable my CDN without breaking my site.
I am at a stand still on this.
- I deactivated our CDN.
- I deactivated all plugins on site.
- I switched to 2015 theme.
After doing all of that when I look at our site and the map page in particular on Firebug I still only see the “Google Maps No API warning”.
What else can I do other than the steps above?

Lance is out at the moment. There have been a lot of conflicts posted about themes and plugins breaking because they did not update to test with 4.5.
Lance found this one:
Check to see if any of your plugins are using Backbone or Underscore.
Did you check the WP 4.5 support forum suggestions and info?April 15, 2016 at 1:48 PM #40452
I went ahead and installed my live site on localhost so I could troubleshoot there and know for sure that no CDN is causing issues.
I switched to the 2015 Theme and turned off all plugins except Store Locator Plus and Pro Pac.
The map works in 2015 theme and when I run firebug I get the same non-issue single line warning message about the Google Maps API.
Then I switched back to my base theme and my child theme and the Map does not work in either, BUT I still only get the single line warning about the Google Maps API.
Thanks Much for your help! You all are awesome.

No problem, I am monitoring the forums closely , especially whenever there is a major update in WP…well you know the saying..shit happens.. and the Map is right there in your face, so lots of people assume it is SLP. See the WP 4.5 masterlist issues posts, they mention some themes with issues so you know there is more than likely lots more.
As mentioned by Lance the No Google Map API is just a warning.April 15, 2016 at 5:34 PM #40465
P.S. The warning about the Google Maps API is because Google wants everyone to use it on their sites. That doesn’t indicate SLP doesn’t use it, (we do) or that you HAVE to have one , at least for the time being until Google makes it an issue. . I should have read your query and your site more carefully, if you see a message about Multiple Maps then another plugin or theme is doing something with the map in background as well.
Sorry if I added my confusion to the mix… the real issue you are having , the map not loading with your theme enabled is totally different then the google warning (which is just a warning…you can get a free API key, we have tutorials on that as well)
