    Hi Eyal,

    I am using GeoMyWP to get the user’s location when they’re filling a Gravity Form. This is built over BuddyPress plugin. I am facing the following two problems:
    1. If the browser’s Geolocation feature is off, it keeps throwing popups repeatedly with the “User denied the request for Geolocation” message on every page of the website.
    2. If the browsesr’s Geolocation is on, I’m getting “OVER_QUERY_LIMIT” popups, again repeatedly on every page.

    I understand that both these issues are related to the Google Maps API with no direct resolution.

    But my question is that, can I selectively invoke the Geocoder, like in my case – only when the form is opened and a “Get Current Location” button is clicked? Currently, it seems that the Geocoder is invoked at every page, hence the popups.

    Please note the Settings I’m using for this:
    – Client-side ( Javascript ) geocoding is enabled
    – Auto locator is disabled
    – Among the GeoMyWP add-ons, only Gravity Forms Geolocation 2.0-beta-15 is active. All other add-ons are deactivated.

    Hi, I was able to figure out the cause of this issue. It was related to the Popup Maker plugin that I was using to open the forms as popup. So, the OVER_QUERY_LIMIT error was resolved.

    But my question still remains (if that makes any sense). Can that be the reason that I keep getting Geolocation Denied message over and over?


    Helo Neha and apologize for the delayed reply.

    If you disable the auto-locator in the Gravity Form, would you still see the alert message?

    Neha Arora

    Yes, even if the Auto-Locate is off, I get the alert message when the form gets loaded, before I click on the Get Current Location button.


    Can you please update to Gravity Forms Geolocation 2.0 beta 18 ( can be downloaded from your account page ) as well as provide a link to the live form?

    Hi Eyal, I have updated to 2.0 Beta 18, and here are the form details:

    (I still get the pop up when I load the page)

    I don’t see any issue with the plugin. The auto-locator is not generating on every page but only on pages with Gravity Form when the “Page Locator” is enabled in the Geocoder field. Once I disabled the “page Locator” the auto-locator is not showing anymore.

    Now, Google recently has disabled the geolocation feature in its Chrome browser for sites without SSL certificate installed. That means that if you have the page locator enabled for a form and a user views the form on Chrome browser, he will automatically see the “User denied….” message without having the option to give permission for geolocation or not.

    I hope that makes sense.
