For this of you who’ve tried to add an address in the Divi Map Module but keep getting the error message “Geocode was not successful for the following reasons: REQUEST_DENIED”, you’re not alone. This is an issue that has caused me much frustration. The solution to the problem, however, is actually quite easy.
Log into your Google Cloud Platform dashboard and click on ENABLE APIS AND SERVICES. From there, search for “Geo”. This should bring up the following:
Now that all that’s in place, go back to your Divi Maps Module and enter the address and hopefully this time, it’ll work.
And That’s a Wrap
And there you have it folks, with the Geocoding and Geolocation APIs enabled, the Divi Map Module should just work.
Now, if only Elegant Themes would allow the Map Module to work with other mapping providers who don’t require billing details to be in place before you can use their services.
