Easy Property Listings 3.0.3 Bug Fixes and Google Maps Enhancement Release Out Now

Easy Property Listings 3.0.3 has been released! This is a maintenance release that fixes some bugs, cleans up the new Dashboard widget for WordPress 4.5.1 and adds some new features.

Normally our point releases do not include new features, but these map features are important. After all, maps and location are an important part of real estate websites.

Let’s take a look at what is new.

Google Maps API Settings

NEW: Disable Adding Google Maps API Key

You can now completely disable the Google Maps API that EPL loads. Your other plugins or themes may already include the Google Maps API key which results in the following warning message:

You have included the Google Maps API multiple times on this page

There has been a documented filter on how to disable the Google Maps API key in the codex, but this is a much simpler way to disable the warning.

Duplicate Google Maps API Warning

NEW: Set a Google Maps API Key

You can now set a Google Maps API key which will clear the NoApiKeys warning message. Get your own Google Maps JavaScript API key here. Once you have a key, add your unique key to the Advanced Settings > Google Maps API Key.
