Bing Maps not showing on blog module

I had trouble getting google maps to work in the blog module (works fine in the events module). Maps were showing on the blog posts up until recently. Getting an error in the console

ERROR 

GET http://ecn.dev.virtualearth.net/mapcontrol/mapcontrol.ashx?v=6.3&mkt=en-us 

also

soyumi-asian-kitchen-pre-opening-dining:563 Uncaught ReferenceError: VEMap is not defined
    at soyumi-asian-kitchen-pre-opening-dining:563

the page with this error is at

Re: Bing Maps not showing on blog module

I believe MSFT may have deprecated v 6.3 in bing maps because

http://ecn.dev.virtualearth.net/mapcontrol/mapcontrol.ashx?v=7.0

returns data like it should.

Re: Bing Maps not showing on blog module

Hi Allen,

We just tested this on the mojoPortal demo with the following address: 727 Buckhead Drive, Statesboro, GA 30458

We didn't run into any errors, and the driving directions functioned properly. Perhaps you need to format your address as above? If you're still having problems, give us a screencap or list out all of the values under "Map Settings" on your blog post.

Thanks!

Re: Bing Maps not showing on blog module

The Bing Maps API has significantly changed since the feature was added to mojoPortal. We'll be working on updating it but in the meantime, please use Google Maps, which is fixed in the repository and the fix will be in the next release of mojoPortal, due in a couple of days.

Thanks,
Joe

Re: Bing Maps not showing on blog module

Thanks Joe,

The instructions are very clear on what API to use in Google maps. I have tried several and nothing ever displays. It works in the googlemaps module the waI have it set, but not in events or on blog posts.

Re: Bing Maps not showing on blog module

That's what I was saying was fixed in the next release of mojo. Google originally required an API key and then they decided to not require one with v3 of the API, then last year they decided to require one again. Any site (actually page) that had previously used the v3 API without a key was "grandfathered" to not needing a key but that has been unreliable. The currently released version of mojoPortal (v 2.6) doesn't use the key. The next release (v 2.6.0.2) will use a key. You can expect to see that release in a couple of days. Just finishing up testing on pgsql and SQLite right now and writing some docs.

Thanks,
Joe

Re: Bing Maps not showing on blog module

LOL they sure don't make it easy do they. Looking forward to trying out the newer release. BING maps no longer works either.
