Get A Google API Key

This section pertains to the WordPress Store Locator Plus plug-in.  If you are a subscriber to  MySLP, our SaaS service, you can ignore this page.

Before you get started you will need to get a Google Maps Standard API Key.   UPDATE TO INSTRUCTIONS: Please note, there are some misleading instructions in the Google developer console telling you to  create a browser-restricted API key when you move your site to production. DO NOT DO THAT!  Keep the same API key and do not add any restrictions.

Step 1: Go To the Google Developer Site

Get Key
Instructions under Google Maps API Tips are misleading. Do Not go back later and restrict your browser key.

Step 2: Select “Create A Project” at the Google API Keys

Ignore the “Tip” in Google Developer Console”

 

Enter your website info at Google.
