When trying to use the datatype on a page (in the content section), an alert tells me that "This web site needs a different Google Maps API key. A new key can be generated at http://code.google.com/apis/maps/". Even though i have configured it already, and double checked that it is written in the place.config file.
It then says on the page:
No Google Maps API key found for domain raahede.com.
You may obtain a API key from this site.
Once you have obtained an API key click here to install it.
However, when i click to install the API key, the file /umbraco/plugins/FergusonMoriyama/place/Config.aspx cannot be found.
I am running Umbraco 4.5.2 / .NET 4.
I also ran into trouble trying to install the key through the Umbraco interface so I just entered manually and everything worked OK.
Update the file /config/Nibble.Umb.Locator.config with the new key
@frej - if Config.aspx is not found then I'd suggest your package install is corrupted. Re-install the latest version of the package.
@Pauk - I think you are confusing my maps datatype with Tims locator package
I tried re-installing, but with the same result. I am running my solution on a MySQL db, might that be an issue?
@frej - no the package doesn't use the database. which version of the package are you using?
There is an issue with the naming and path to the files I ran into when I tried to uninstall the package it asked me to what to uninstall and actually found the .ascx path was wrong.I am running Umbraco 4.5.2. I am also having the same issue with the /umbraco/plugins/FergusonMoriyama/place/Config.aspx. I get an Error while processing request. Is that file in the 1.2 release of the package? Hence, I did not untinstall the package but kept going with got it to work, Sort of, but am getting a "Your search didn't return any results" alert when I try to look up a location.
These are the files paths I found that it asked me to uninstall. There is no /umbraco/plugins/FergusonMoriyama/place/Config.aspx in the list. That is why I am assuming it was not added to the package.
/usercontrols/FmPlace/FmPlacePostIntall.ascx – THIS PATH FOR THIS IS DIFFERENT
IN THE 1.2 PACKAGE THAN THE DOCUMENTATION PDF for 1.1 install.
Did you change the paths in the package from 1.1 to 1.2? I am assuming so due to the 4.5+ releases.
Is this thing compatible with 4.5.2 using .Net 4.0?
@carlos - a number of points.
Take the time to read the package homepage. compatinility with Umbraco versions and the .net build version is clearly stated.
The documentation is for the 1.1 release - so you shouldn't assume that anything in there is valid for 1.2. There is no doc for 1.2 at present.
It does seem that I missed config.aspx from the 1.2 package so I'll release a patch version of the package when I have a moment.
Having said, config.aspx is only a GUI for the underlying config file so the package should work without it.
If you are having trouble searching the maps, suggest you use firebug to watch the map plugin querying mapProxy.aspx and see what results are coming back.
Thanks for getting back to me on this. I apprediate it. Thanks for suggesting using Firebug, I will do that.
Again, great maps package. Awesome work.
I might be able to shed a little light over this situation.
I´ve just tried to install the package manually by uploading the zip file I got from this page: http://our.umbraco.org/projects/backoffice-extensions/google-maps-datatype - and it failed with more or less the same problems as mentioned above (no Config.aspx and kept asking for an API key - yes I also double checked)
So what I did was to uninstall the package and reinstall it from Developer > Packages > Umbraco package Repository > Backoffice extensions > Google maps datatype - and this did the trick.
So try installing it from the Umbraco package Repository.
For anyone passing by, the site name must be all lowercase in the config file.
Just come back with the same problem, only to find I'd figured it before :)
Had the exact same problem and what I did to finally fix it... Don't use HTTP:// in front of the domain... Failed horribly here...
If you're using 4.7 then just upgrade the datatype http://our.umbraco.org/projects/backoffice-extensions/google-maps-datatype
No more API keys needed!
Sadly, we're still running 4.6.2 due to nForum :(
All of the others websites were updated to 4.7, except for this one... At first I was buzy the entire morning trying to find out WHY it wouldnt work... Then figured out that I wasn't running 4.7.. LOL ;)
is working on a reply...
