Broken? (since WP4.7.5) No support

This would be a great plugin if it was properly maintained – and I’d be happy to 5 star it if fixed. BUT:

1. It doesn’t work (for me) in WP4.8. My key is valid (I’ve tested and called Apixu’s weather API with my own php code).

2. When plugins are deleted, they should remove settings to stop cluttering up you WP – this plugin does not.

3. No response to any support requests (2) in the last 12 months.

The same fault was reported by another user 10 weeks ago. He reported the plugin stopped working after upgrade to WP4.7.5. His solution to use the previous (v1.2.0) version of the plugin did not work for me.

Brilliant! Beautiful and displays Farenheit for US, etc!

This plugin looks great with about 9 different theme options (all are responsive) and it’s extremely easy to setup. BEST OF ALL … you can choose Celsius or Fahrenheit depending on your country – without paying for a pro version like other weather plugins!!

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
