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.

Simple Weather


Shows current weather for specified location. Makes use of “secret” Google Weather API, which is
unofficial, yet XML-based and lightweight, and is used by developers quite often.
The plugin uses cURL, so works even on hosts with some security restricions, like url-disabled file_get_contents.
If you’ve downloaded it, consider leaving feedback in my guestbook, it’s
rather important for me. Thanks.
