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”]
This plugin is using Open Weather Map.
- Download the weather-layer.zip file which contains the whole stuff required

- Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
- Configure the plugin through your admin interface
- Use shortcode like [weatherlayer country=”England” city=”London”] for posts and WL widget for the sidebar
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.
You don’t know French you’re out of luck
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.
