Map limitation was created by Patrick Pegram
i noticed your map will not display without map coordinates. Address only will not work and the map defaults to 0.000000,0.000000. which is nowhere on the equator.

Also, your map coordinates are rounded at 6 decimals and all google map coordinates use 7 decimals. your feature rounds up to 6 decimals and puts the exact detail in error for the map. locations can be up to 2 kilometers off and hard to find a location.

Can i go to the code and correct the decimals to 7 on map coordinates? if so, please explain the procedure and I would recommend this be done on your next general update.

google maps provides the coordinates in their url as follows: www.google.com/maps/place/5+N+Laurens+St...eenville,+SC+29601/@ 34.8513298,-82.4006886,19z/data=!4m5!3m4!1s0x885831ce0f33ad97:0xffc043efb9cc75b1!8m2!3d34.8513254!4d-82.4001414

thier shared link is: goo.gl/maps/ygDH2TWw2vgnVWVK9

The popup model does not seem to work even when coding it correctly: {modal url=" www.google.com/maps/embed?pb=!1m18!1m12!...540335!5m2!1sen!2sus " title="Map to Event" width="600" height="450" iframe="true"}{/modal}

Hello Cristina

See eventbookingdoc.joomservices.com/trouble...p-error-and-solution for solution to address the Google Map issue

Basically, you need to register and use a valid Google Map API Key, or for simple usage, switch your site to use OpenStreetMap

Regards,

Tuan
