Weather Layer


Weather Layer is a plugin which allows you to display a layer with weather information for a choosen city.

For example, if you want to display weather for Paris into a post, you just need to insert the following shortcode :

[weatherlayer country=”France” city=”Paris”]

This will display a horizontal layer with weather information related to Paris, France. This format fits well for single posts. However, if you want to insert a weather layer into your sidebar, the WL widget is what you need. Drag and drop it in the widgets menu then fill the form.

Finally, if you want to display a vertical layer with a shortcode, use this :

[weatherlayer country=”France” city=”Paris” display=”vertical”]

NB :
This plugin is using Open Weather Map.


  • Horizontal display
  • Vertical display


  1. Download the file which contains the whole stuff required
  2. Unzip the archive
  3. Upload weather-layer directory extracted from the archive to your /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  4. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  5. Configure the plugin through your admin interface
  6. Use shortcode like [weatherlayer country=”England” city=”London”] for posts and WL widget for the sidebar


Nice looking plugin but not perdect

The plugin isn’t synchronized right cause it shows the weather of the next day not the present one and i couldn’t find any setting to change the display day. Also when viewed by a mobile phone the name of the city has a space in the middle of the letters.

Nice plugin

I was looking for a new weather plugin because the one I was using didn’t work anymore (it was using Yahoo Weather) and this one works perfectly.

Really easy to use and configure. Different languages and units availables, good plugin.
