Here’s an example of what it looks like when it’s activated on a site:

Contact Info Widget Settings

Once you add the widget from the Customizer, you’ll see the following widget settings:

  • Title – Set the title to be shown at the top of the widget above the contact information. (i.e. Hours & Info, Contact Us, Stop by our Office.)
  • Address – Enter your full address. This is the address that Google Maps will use if you enable the option to show a map.
  • Phone – Set the phone number as you want it to display to your visitors.
  • Email address – Display an email address your visitors can use to contact you.
  • Hours – Enter any text in this box (does not accept HTML.)

Display a Map

To display a map in the Contact Info & Map widget, start by ticking the Show map checkbox. Then, enter your full address and Google Maps will start displaying the correct location on the map.

Troubleshooting

If you’re having trouble with the map showing the correct location, be sure you enter your full address with no extra spaces or line breaks, and commas in the correct positions. You can also enter your address at Google Maps and see what the address corrects to, then enter that instead. Your address will appear as a clickable link that goes to your address on Google Maps.

If, instead of a “Show map” checkbox, your site is showing a field for a Google Maps API Key, you will need to enter your own unique key to display a map. You can follow these instructions by Google to create your key.

Unique key required

The Google Map may additionally be blocked if your site has declared itself to have children as a target audience; this is for Google to be in compliance with COPPA regulations. In this case, you will need to both create and enter your own unique Maps API key, and update your target groups settings for Google.
