Since I still could not make the theme maps work, I contacted WP Fix It at wpfixit.com. They always help me with WordPress problems that I can not solve on my own. They found there must be a bug in your theme. I am attaching all the information I received from them that might help you to resolve the issue with other clients. You should also take it off the market with MOJO Market Place until you resolve the issue. The theme cost me initially and cost me more time and money to go to WP Fix It to figure out what was wrong that I could not make it work since you apparently have not followed through to see what could be my problem if my API key was correct. I don’t see a way to attach anything, so I will just give you the words of the message I received from WP Fixit. If you want the attachments that show the process, let me know how I can email them to you. Here is the message:
Gay, I got the map working!
I can verify that the Theme Google Map Code API does not work on the front end, the theme has a bug.
I was able to figure out a way to display the map on the front end page by adding a shortcode from another plugin to the end of the property description.
I wanted to check to see if the API key I made was working so I installed a plugin on your website to check it and I was able to verify the API Key I made works.
I added the shortcode to display the map on the property listing page and it displayed the map and it also made the other map from the theme work too. Wow!
What I did was using the plugin I installed I made a map with no address and 0 pixels in size to add the shortcode to the property description and it works, it makes the theme map work.
All you have to do is add this shortcode to the end of your property description. [wpgmza id=”1″]
When you make new or edit properties just add the shortcode [wpgmza id=”1″] to the end of the property description. It’s a hack but it works.
There is definitely a problem with the theme’s code but this work around will get you going and able to display maps on your website.
