I regenerated the Google Maps API key and its still not showing up, but neither is anything in the sidebar. I rechecked all other Google settings and they match the recommendations on the link you posted.
same with social settings. they are all good. have you ever had an instance of the WHOLE sidebar not showing up?
I really appreciate your help, I'm desperate! the plugin author appears to be not local, given the delay in responses and word choices they use. plus they have been really unhelpful, just sending me basic articles.
I am more than happy to provide a login if that helps!
