Forgot noting that plugin is activated and maps api key is added correctly. This is on php 8.1.2 on Ubuntu Server with Caddy running over PHP-FPM

Hi there @LinuxGuy :wave:

Could you please share a direct link to the page where your widget is installed? I’ll gladly check it for you :slightly_smiling_face:

Thank you!

I’ve checked your website and couldn’t find the widget’s installation code there.

You can try to reinstall the widget following the steps described in this article - How to add Elfsight widget to WordPress website - Elfsight Help Center

However, if any difficulties come up, please let me know and I’ll contact you directly to request the installation info :slightly_smiling_face:

I am using the plugin and not the widget

Oh, I am sorry about that!

I however have to say that this forum is dedicated to Elfsight cloud apps, thus we can assist with only cloud apps-related questions here. As far as I inderstand, you’re using our WP standalone plugin, which looks and works differently.

I advise you to ask your question via our CodeCanyon form, our team will try their best to provide the answers there :raised_hands:t2:
