- Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
- Goto Apearence-> widgets and put the “Google Weather 4 WP” in the sidebar.

- How does the autolanguage detection works?
For that to work you must have the plugin qTranslate installed and enabled.
The GoogleWeather4WP plugin detect’s the selected language in qTranslate and tries to show acording it.
- What about the language by default?
The default language acts if the qTranslate plugin is not installed, or if it cannot detect the used language by qTranslate.
- Can i change the icons to match my style?
Yes, you can. Just head with ftp or file manager to wp-content/plugins/google-weather-4-wp/imgs/ and replate the images.
Dont forget to mantain the icons names.
- The widget content is showing nicely in the language i had selected with qTranslate, but the widget title no, is it a bug?
No. That is not a bug. For the widget title to change acording to qTranslate language, you must make it this way:
[:en]widget title in en[:fr]widget de titre en fr[:XX]widget title in XX language
if you type that in the widget title in the widget configuration, qTranslate will make it availiable in the defined languages.
