Google Places Reviews Widget Not Displaying


I’ve installed the Google Places Reviews plugin on WordPress and followed instructions on how to link it up.

The widget now appears in the BB WordPress Widgets menu:

However when I drag the widget module on to a page an INVALID REQUEST message shows up

It’s asking to check that this widget has a Google Place ID set (which it has)

In fact WordPress displays the widget on a page but I’d like to display it in a BB module to have more control of placement.

Please help!



Hey Jamie,

Thanks for getting in touch! It seems the plugin offers an option to use shortcodes instead of widgets. I would suggest giving that a shot. Check the link below.

Let us know how it goes! :slight_smile:


Hi Ben

Thanks again for the prompt reply :slight_smile:

The short code option worked a treat!

Thanks for your patience with my “non-developer” questions!


Hey Jamie,

No worries! Have fun with The Beaver! :slight_smile:
