    thank you for your update 4.4 and that GDPR stuff, that you included!
    Great job!
    I have two issues for you.
    I want to be able to be asure, that on using shortcode [av_privacy_google_maps] Google Maps is
    on standard loading deactivated! Because it makes no sense load the site and send sensitve Data
    along Google and have it afterwards deactivated.
    Your tutorial: https://kriesi.at/archives/enfold-4-4-and-the-gdpr-general-data-protection-regulation is confusing, because of those lines: If you do not like the default text or language these shortcodes generate you can use your own text like this: [shortcode]YOUR OWN TEXT[/shortcode]

    I figured out this is the right use of shortcode on these: [av_privacy_google_maps]BLABLA[/av_privacy_google_maps]

    Just before that I tried: [av_privacy_google_maps][shortcode]BLABLA[/shortcode][/av_privacy_google_maps]

    Best regards,


    I figured it out by myself too. There is no use for the [av_privacy_google_maps] shortcode.
    There is a new configuration section-> Conditional load within Google Maps media element.
    User have to accept to show Google Maps!
    Thank you. Topic can be closed.
    So long,


    but ! – the api is loaded already – with or without that consent


    @Guenni007: Are you sure about it? So how I would use Google maps GPDR-ready in Enfold or with Enfold theme?
    Adding some lines e.g. into function file?! How ever – thank you to point it out, Guenni007!
    And those shortcode [av_privacy_google_maps] is not making the job properly.
    Waiting for response of development team member too.

    Please, if it is as Guenni007 wrote, make changes, that api is only loading, if user clicked the accept button in the blog-entry we use the Google Maps element!!!

    Best regards,


    if loading the api is against GDPR is not sure. If you declare it in your privacy policy – i think it will be ok.



    To clarify:

    There are 3 steps:

    If you do not use a google map on a page, only framework\js\conditional_load\avia_google_maps_front.js is loaded. This has no connection to Google.

    If you have a map that needs user interaction to open (Option Link to Google Maps: User must accept to show Google Maps) the file framework\js\conditional_load\avia_google_maps_api.js is loaded but NO CONNECTION is setup to Google.

    Only when the user clicks to open the first Google Map the real Google API is loaded and bound to the container and a connection is established.

    When you choose “Open Google Maps in a new WIndow” no connection is established at all by Enfold.

    Best regards,


    Hello, Günter,

    thank you for such detailed information!
    This indicates the use of Google Maps is GPDR-compatible and well thought through
    on the Enfold development.

    All the best for you. Keep up the great work!

    Best regards,
