Google Maps temporarily disabled in the WCMS – August 1

Wednesday, August 1, 2018

What is happening? The Google map that appears when you enter a location in the Events and Services content types in the WCMS is being temporarily disabled due to a change to Google’s custom map policy. IST is currently working on a permanent replacement and will inform the campus community when it is implemented.

What is the impact? Any locations added to Events or Services will no longer display a map in the WCMS. The address will remain in place.

What can you do?  If it is essential that you have a map included in your Event or Service page, you can embed a Google map into the WYSIWYG editor. For instructions on how to embed a Google map, please see our Web Resources site: https://uwaterloo.ca/web-resources/wcms-users/training-and-support/wcms-how-documents/embed-google-map

  • Note: If you embed a map, please ensure that you remove it when the map feature is restored.

Questions or concerns? Please submit to rt-ist-wcms@rt.uwaterloo.ca or the IST Service Desk, helpdesk@uwaterloo.ca, ext. 44357.
