Release Note

May 11, 2021

Although I anounced “Call for testing beta” last month, still I can not see the light at the end of my work. So I decided to release version that has improved a few issues.

Google Maps APIs Updates

On June 22, 2016, Google anounced their standard plan updates which would be applied to all Google Maps APIs. It means that after the date, we need to get API key to embed Google Map apps into our domains. On the other hand, active domains created before June 22, 2016, can continue to access the APIs.

So IP Location Block should support both cases. What a hassle!

If you see the following warning, then your domain falls within the updates.

Oops! Something went wrong.

But don’t worry! This plugin will fetch the warning and immediately configure to apply a fallback method using an iframe to show map like bellow:

Of course, you can configure your own API key for Google Maps JavaScript API. You can find the text field for Google Maps API key at Plugin settings.

Keyless REST API in the future

This time, I programed the old REST API of Google Map earth into the iframe. But in the future, it will be shut down. Then I will use HERE Maps pushpin .
