What about the Api Key? was created by vlester
Hello,
I've installed the plugin but it doesn't work. Firebug gives me two warnings :
"Google Maps API warning: NoApiKeys"
"Google Maps API warning: InvalidKey"

I generated a api Key in Google developers, I tried a Server Api Key and a Browser Api Key, none of them worked.
On your documentation page, there is nothing about the google Api key paramater like it didn't exist.
Is an API key required or not to make the lugin work?
If it is, what type of Api should I use, server or browser?

Thanks for your help

Hello

API key is not required for the plugin to work.
It's only required if your site generates high volume queries.
An API key is required for the Geolocation: Google Maps Geocoding API or Google Maps Geolocation API
An other one for the map display if you use it: Google Maps JavaScript API

Hope it helps

Thanks, so if the Google api is not required, it's not the source of my problem.

I don't know why the plugin don't set the latitude and longitude. I checked the names of the cb fields and it matches the ones I gave to the plugin. I set to read only the Geolocator plugin.

I enabled the debug mode but it doesn't show anything. is the debug mode supposed to work backend or frontend?
If the plugin was working, it should filled the fields "latitude" and "longitude" in the "Geommunity Locator" tab when I update a user, is that correct?

Thanks for your help

Make sure you don't mix Geocoder and Geolocator.
Disable or uninstall the Geolocator as both can conflict if not set correctly.
Both set coordinates in the cb_geolat and cb_geolng columns of the #__comporfiler database table.

Enabling the debug mode should show something like this in the front end (at least)
