For some time, my connection to Google maps does not work.
I have an old API-kode (at least I believe it is my code) which I have entered into Webtrees, but I need some help with this.
I have looked at the instructions at the Google Map site, but am not able to understand what I should do there.
Anyone?

Google now requires you to have a credit-card on file to be able to use Google Maps.

There is a "free tier", so you can set your limit to $0/month and maps will simply stop working when you reach the end of the free tier.

Google console: you need to register a project (and yes billing information -> credit card)

In API service generate an API key - apply restrictions (I set it to only accept requests from my domain)

Make sure 'Maps JavaScript API' is enabled

(I also have Geocoding API enabled, I'm not sure but I think this allowed searching for new place names in the Control Panel - I'm unsure because after migrating to WT 2.0 I don't have any Google Map activity any more)

For my limited use, I have never paid any fees (always been under the threshold for charging), even when I was in place name maintenance mode
