Geocoder isn't auto-generate latitude and longitude coordinates

By Zicky - December 31, 2019 - edited: December 31, 2019

I've installed CMSB 3.53, downloaded the latest geocoder plugin, and followed all the directions to install. I set up a Google API credentials and applied the API Key to geocoder... but geocoder just wont auto-generate latitude and longitude coordinates on my websites. 

I have a CC on file with Google APIs, I also have the following enabled:

  • Maps Embed API - Make places easily discoverable with interactive Google Maps.
  • Maps Static API - Simple, embeddable map image with minimal code.
  • Maps JavaScript API - Maps for your website
  • Geocoding API - Convert between addresses and geographic coordinates.

I double checked my field type, geocoder to ensure the field names match... and these all check out fine.

Has anyopne else had this issue and/or have suggestions on how to get geocoder to auto-generate latitude and longitude coordinates?

Thank Zicky

I also tried the "Geocode Tables" (Admin > Plugins > Geocode Tables, and selected the table which needs to be
updated.) but got the following message: Error: STATUS_REQUEST_DENIED

No joy.

Hi Zicky,

Thanks for following up with more details - you've managed to isolate the cause of the issue which is half the battle!

It looks like you've already tried a lot of the obvious domain/wildcard combinations, so I think to be of any help I'll need to know the specific site URL you're trying to use. If you'd prefer to not share that publicly on the forum, feel free to send it in a support request and I'll see if I can offer any other suggestions:
