Product: Tao Contao
Contao Version: 4.10

Can you tell me which API I need to activate to get the map feature work in the TAO Google Map module. I've generated an API key code, but the Google Maps module stays gray. I've no key limitations adjusted yet.

    Thank you for submitting your question!

    For the element “Google Map mit Textboxen” of the Tao theme you need the “Google Maps JavaScript API” and the “Google Maps Geocoding API” to be activated for your API key.

    If the issue still occurs with these APIs enabled, please take a look at the JavaScript console of your browser to see if there are any error messages related to the Google Maps API.
