Geotag-Plugin und Google Maps API V 3

Post by gregman » Thu Feb 09, 2012 9:29 pm

Hi,

nach http://code.google.com/intl/de-DE/apis/ ... ml#Welcome benötigt die Google Map JavaScript API in der Version 3 keinen API-Schlüssel mehr! Die entsprechende Angabe im Sidebar-Plugin könnte daher entfernt werden. Darüber hinaus bezieht das Event-Plugin noch die Google Maps API in der Version 2 ein. Diese gilt jedoch als veraltet (http://code.google.com/intl/de-DE/apis/ ... avascript/). Google selbst empfiehlt, den Code auf die neue API zu migrieren.

Ich könnte den Code des Plugins aktualisieren, würde nur gerne vorab Feedback haben, ob es hierfür Bedarf gibt.

Greg

Thx for the advice (not to post in german outside the sub forum "Generelles in Deutsch" with respect to the non german speeking visitors - though I'm missing the sub forum "Spezielles in Deutsch" btw ;-).

Here's what Google Translator says, that I wrote:

hi,

after http://code.google.com/intl/de-DE/apis/ ... Welcome ml # needs the Google Map JavaScript API in version 3 an [but it has to be: "no", A. N.] API key anymore! The corresponding entry in the sidebar plugin may be removed. In addition, the event is still the Plugin [should be: the event-plugin still references, A.N.] Google Maps API in version 2. This is thought to be outdated (http://code.google.com/intl/de-DE/apis/ avascript ... /). Google itself recommends to migrate the code to the new API.

I could update the code of the plugin [but, A.N.] would just like to have feedback in advance whether this is [considered, A.N.] necessary.

That's right, and what is more: the Google Maps JS API v3 is much cleaner and simpler than v2 IMHO. So if you want to give it a shot, please go ahead. As you mentioned, the API key is currently used both in the sidebar and the event plugins, but won't be needed anymore with v3, so this option can also be removed.

@gregman: Are there any updates at this subject? Did you manage to finish the upgrade to API V3?
