Issue

If you used Google Maps widget from Adobe Muse to build your website, you may find the Google Maps not functioning as expected, in the website. 

Starting from June 11, 2018 there is a change in Google Maps licensing model. This change impacts the Google Maps widget that was distributed with Adobe Muse. 

Workaround

As a workaround to the Google Maps widget issue, follow the steps below:

  1. Click here to download the .mulib widget library. 

    Note:

    Clicking the above link takes you to a third-party website, which is not owned or maintained by Adobe.

  2. Open the .mulib file in Muse by double-clicking it. This step adds the .mulib as a library item. 

  3. Replace existing Google Maps widget in all the locations of your application with the new widget:

    • In Adobe Muse, choose Window > Widgets Library.

               The Widgets Library panel is displayed.

    • In the Widgets Library panel, select the widget and drag it on to your Adobe Muse web page.
    • To configure the widget further, click the  button to open the Options panel.

               For more information, see Configuring and customizing widgets.

    • Paste the Google Maps API key in the first field of Options panel. 
      If you do not have an API key, you need to acquire an API key to use Google's apps. You can use this API key across multiple sites. Refer to Google's site for instructions on how to acquire an API key and set up billing process. 

    Note:

    Ensure that you have taken backup of your .muse project file before you publish it.  

  4. Re-export or publish your Adobe Muse based website again. 

    The Map widget is updated now.
