    Hello,

    Nice plugin, thanks.
    It can't find the location I would like. I can find it on accuweather: http://www.accuweather.com/en/nl/hellevoetsluis/251497/weather-forecast/251497
    Do I have to enter a code instead of hellevoetsluis in the searchbox?

    Thanx.

    Hello ariane,

    enter EUR|NL|NL012|HELLEVOETSLUIS as the location code will do the job.
    I entered Hellevoetsluis and it was found.

    Happy XMAS, Hans

    Hi, how do you form the location code (especially the number for the second country code - like EUR|NL|NL012|HELLEVOETSLUIS

    Hello pmkr,

    I clicked on the magnifying glass in the admin dialog and entered HELLEVOETSLUIS as the search term then clicked search and the town was displayed as a result. After that I clicked on the name of the town adn the code was transferred to the admin settings dialog. Then I clicked save.

    Thats, all.

    Hi, tuxlog - the search doesn't work but plugin works if I enter and save the code straight (for the search results I get nothing - a dot only) - I use only AccuWeather.

    What do you get for a location
    http://www.accuweather.com/fi/fi/sirkka/134941/weather-forecast/134941
    ??

    I entered the number "134941" for the location, but the temperature is different than in AccuWeather site. (I just need current conditions)

    wow :O it works!!
    But for some reason I get -14 celsius degrees and if I link it to the weather provider and follow the link - it says -10 degrees (correct) on weather provider page????

    what's the difference between

    http://www.accuweather.com/fi/fi/sirkka/134941/weather-forecast/134941

    and

    http://www.accuweather.com/en/fi/sirkka/134942/weather-forecast/134942?p=accuweather
    (the link from plugin)

    wp-forecast returns: EUR|FI|FI006|AKASLOMPOLO

    I have no idea why accuweather delivers different degrees for obviously the same location. We have had this sometimes before but this can only be answered by accuweather.

    Malta. Gozo-Comino, Birbuba:

    EUR|MT|MT---|BIRBUBA

    The code for Pointe-a-Pitre is CAC|GP|GP%2D%2D%2D|POINTE%2DA%2DPITRE

    Hey Claire,

    this one is very tricks. What I found is ANT|AQ|AQ---|VOSTOK but Dumont d'Urville is even not found in netweather(the WEB interface of accuweather) which uses the same API as wp-forecast.

    So I think you should try with one of the locations at
    http://www.accuweather.com/en/browse-locations/ant/aq/00
    maybe you can find a near one

    Hi Tuxlog,

    Many thanks for your answer !

    I tried the link you gave me, and there is the Dumont D'Urville Station classified. So I understand that I cannot get the weather in this location with your plugin, even if it is in the list of the link ?

    I think, I have another problem because, when I test this ANT|AQ|AQ---|VOSTOK, no information appears in my website :

    <<<Bulletin météorologique
    Failure notice from provider:
    XML Fehler: Undeclared entity error in Zeile 1 (Connection Error:http_request_failed
    Impossible d’ouvrir le gestionnaire de fopen() pour http://.api.wxbug.net/getLiveWeatherRSS.aspx?ACode=&cityCode=ANT%7CAQ%7CAQ---%7CVOSTOK&UnitType=1&OutputType=1 )<<<

    Maybe, there something wrong in the installation of the plugin.

    Claire,

    seems you try to use WeatherBug as your WeatherProvider without an API code. To you WeatherBug you have to register and get an API code. This code must be entered inthe wp-forecast adminn dialog.

    Please try accuweather first, it is easier because you do not need an API code to use it.

    Please try it with some other city. Maybe london or boston or something else that is found using the search dialog.

    If this works try to search for Vostok.

    Accuweather has several interfaces and the Dumont Station place seems not to be offered via the web api.

    Hello Tuxlog,
    Thanks for this answer, and sorry for the delay.
    I can now see the forecast for Vostok thanks to Accuweather ... its a great improve for me, thanks a lot !
    Do you know if there is any mean I can get the Dumont Station weather anyway ? In fact, I going to spend more than one year in this particular place which is quite far from Vostok...
    I really thank you for the job you make on this plugin.
    Best regards,
    Claire

    Hello Claire,

    great you live there for such a long time. Must be fascinanting nature out there.

    I tried again to fetch DD-Station weather via the open interface of accuweather but unfortunately it is not in there. Maybe you want to try the web widget of accuweather for your site but they take a small fee for that. I think it is in there but can't verify it.

    Sorry, it is not possible to legaly connect to the paid interface of accuweather.
