Plugin Directory

!This plugin hasn't been updated in over 2 years. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.

Weather Widget

This widget displays the current condition, temperature, and the feels like temperature. It uses weather.com’s xoap api to retrieve the information.

Requirements

  • WordPress 2.2 or 2.0.x/2.1.x with WordPress Widgets
  • PHP 4.3.0 or greater (needed for function file_get_contents)

Location

The location can either be a zip code for US users or the locid. To find the locid, you can do a search using http://xoap.weather.com/search/search?where=search parameters].This will return an XML file with search results and their corresponding locid’s.

You can also find it using the Weather.com website. After searching for and selecting your city, you will be sent to a url that will look something like, http://www.weather.com/outlook/driving/interstate/local/USTX0617?from=search_city, where USTX0617 is the locid.

Image Hosting

I’ve provided the images used and provided by weather.com here. If you want to host your own images, extract and upload the files, then, in the admin panel, edit the ‘Image Location’ field to point to your directory of images. Make sure to have the trailing slash.

If you don’t use your own images, you are free to use the ones that I’ve hosted, which are located at http://nothingoutoftheordinary.com/weatherimages/
