Get NOAA weather information in the sidebar for your locale. Note that NOAA reports weather for US States, Commonwealths, & Territories only.
Fixed (kludged) problem where cron job got deleted (for no known reason) and thus the weather file never gets updated. Checked and changed compatibility up to WordPress 3.8
Updated the url where the XML file resides after NOAA changed it which caused the weather to no longer updated.
Fixed a bug if the icon file didn't exist. Also removed an extraneous empty folder.
There were problems with the icon data in the weather file so I rewrote the way the plugin gets the icon. Now all the icons are stored with the plugin and called up locally. Also changed the "default" icon to look better on darker backgrounds.
Icons courtesy of NOAA here: http://w1.weather.gov/xml/current_obs/weather.php
Changed website URI's and email adddress.
Added a default icon if not supplied in weather file.
Rewrote widget to use WP_Http functions (wp_remote_get) to retrieve weather file instead of using Curl. This should fix the problem on some servers that didn't have curl activated in PHP and thus the weather file never downloaded.
Renamed some internal functions so as not to conflict with other plugins. If there is no value for Windchill then Heat Index is displayed, if no Heat Index then Dewpoint is displayed.
Removed default title of "NOAA Weather" if the user left it blank in the widget setup for more flexibility with some themes.
Fixed a problem with a slash vs. backslash for WordPress installs on Linux servers.
Get current weather file for any codes "in use" when activating plugin.
Fixed problem when changing themes the weather file wasn't being updated.
Fixed the links that broke when making them pass validation.
The widget should pass markup validation now. The NOAA code is trimmed of any extraneous spaces and is uppercased. The weather is now retrieved immediately when you add/change the NOAA code. There is no need to deactivate/activate the plugin to get the weather to update. If there is no value for Windchill, Dewpoint is displayed instead.
Added code to create "twicehourly" cron schedule.
This is the first version released to the public.
Some minor tweaks to the css file.
First beta release to select test group.
