Google Maps API

Having difficulties enabling Google Maps API on a live site (Google's documentation is convoluted to say the least!).

Do I also have to add the API key to Perch here perch/config/config.php? I'm reading

And what is the second part 'abc123' ?

define('PERCH_GMAPS_API_KEY', 'abc123');

that is where you put your API key.

Of course! Thanks. Map still not working though.

Should this key feed back into the script below? I see that CMSMap.key is blank CMSMap.key=''.

<script type="text/javascript">/* <![CDATA[ */ if(typeof CMSMap =='undefined'){var CMSMap={};CMSMap.maps=[];document.write('<scr'+'ipt type="text\/javascript" src="/cms/core/assets/js/public_maps.min.js"><'+'\/sc'+'ript>');}CMSMap.maps.push({'mapid':'cmsmap466-1','width':'300','height':'300','type':'map','zoom':'15','adr':'NN16 8LD','lat':'52.40855839642463','lng':'-0.733637809753418','clat':'52.40866832815391','clng':'-0.7336209888854994'});CMSMap.key='';/* ]]> */</script>

... I'm getting...

Have you saved your content since adding the API key to your config?

Boom! Working now. Thanks Drew/Rachel
