Sydney contacting Google (Maps)

I wonder how I can prevent the theme from contacting Google Maps (what it obviously does). I don’t use Google maps and don’t want anything to get in contact with a google maps website. Still need access to Google fonts.

Any ideas?
Cheers, Timo

Hi Timo,

Thank you for contacting us. I am happy to help with your queries.

Try adding the below snippet to your child theme’s functions.

    function sydney_pro_child_remove_googlemap_api() {
       wp_dequeue_style( 'sydney-gmaps-api' );
    }
    add_action( 'wp_enqueue_scripts', 'sydney_pro_child_remove_googlemap_api', 999 );

Or use Code Snippets plugin if you aren’t running any child theme.

Thanks Kharis.

Hi Kharis.
Seems like I was a bit to quick :frowning:
The site still tries to contact google maps requesting an API key. Despite the fact that I included your code in the child themes function.php

In the console I get a warning from “utils.js”: util.js:228 Google Maps JavaScript API warning: NoApiKeys https://developers.google.com/maps/documentation/javascript/error-messages#no-api-keys
Yz.o @ util.js:228

Any further idea?

Hi,

Have you checked whether it comes from other plugin or not by temporarily disabling all other plugins?

Hi Kharis, I get the Google Maps warning even with all PlugIns deactivated …

Hi,

Try this code:

    function sydney_pro_child_remove_googlemap_api() {
       wp_dequeue_script( 'sydney-gmaps-api' );
    }
    add_action( 'wp_enqueue_scripts', 'sydney_pro_child_remove_googlemap_api', 999 );
