World weather – WWO

Description

Small patch turned into a completely new plugin. The weather forecast is based on http://www.worldweatheronline.com/ API (JSON).
The plugin is much more light then its ancestor. It has more features and most importantly it works!

The install

  1. You can install the plugin using the auto-install tool from the WordPress back-end.
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. You should now see the widget show up under ‘widgets’ menu. Drop that widget into a sidebar.

How are the day name localized?

The localization is treated by the internal WordPress logic. What language you have that language you get.

Why did you make another Weather widget?

Well, we (http://prahounakole.cz) were using the ICIT Weather widget for a while and when it stopped to work I went ahead and “fix” it.

Can I use the bundled images for free?

Sure!

Even on commercial project?

Sure!

What if I want to use my own icons?

It’s easy, make your own and put them images in the sub-folder with your custom name to the images folder in this plugin directory.
Refresh the widget admin screen. You’ll find your pack in the “Image set” Weather widget menu.
(good source of icons is:http://www.iconarchive.com/ or http://www.deviantart.com/)

Check how the bundled images how they are done, and follow this naming structure:
WORLD WEATHER possible weather cases (image names are 395.png and it thumbnail 395-thumb.png)

and what about the weather informations?

If you want to use this widget you have to first get the API from (http://www.worldweatheronline.com/register.aspx)..don’t wary it’s free, just follow the WWO Policy (http://www.worldweatheronline.com/free-weather-feed.aspx?menu=usage).
