I think I use the correct settings, but I don't see the map icon in the lightbox view. See the screenprints.

Kind regards, Otto.

Two things to look at:

  • Under Album > Settings > Advanced > Metadata, check Include photographic data in generated pages. Otherwise, the GPS coordinates are not available.
  • Under Tiger > Sections > Map, enter your API Key.

  • Photographic data are included in the generated pages.
  • API Key: do I realy need that? On the settings page is told that this is only necessary when the map is loaded more than 25.000 times a day.

You absolutely must have an API key.

Since 07/2016 Google requires this key on all new pages. The older pages that were made previously got "grandfathered" for awhile.

The settings page says: "Please note, as of 06/2016 the map will only work if you provide the API key. Local preview won´t work either, only on the uploaded site."

With the API-key it works. Great! Thank you for your quick response.

By the way: on my settings page (see screenshot) there is another (apparently old) message. But now I know.

Ah, yes! Some of the translation files haven't been updated, and the nl one falls in that category. Tough to keep all of those files up-to-date (even the default one has two entries for that field).
