  • Resolved prstwo


    I’m using this awesome plugin, but recently i’ve been receiving (Connection Error:http_request_failed). I should note that this error isn’t permanent and happens every 10 minutes (more or less). What do you think? Everything else is ok on my site but this problem is occurring these days!

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

    Hello prstwo,

    assuming you are using accuweather as your weatherprovider, I would try three things in this order.

    1. Raise the cache refresh to at least 3600 seconds. If you try to fetch the weather data to often your request maybe cancelled.
    2. try another transfer method, you can check which methods are working using the “Check connection to Weatherprovider” link
    3. raise the timeout, ususally 30 seconds are totally okay

    Looking forward to the results. 🙂

    Since yesterday, no error has been received


    I’m having the same issue and I increased the timeout, but I’m not able to set any settings in the lower section for Accuweather, it won’t hold. I’m hosting on WPEngine and asked them to disable caching on the page I’m displaying weather. I see the weather generating on our QA site that does not have an SSL but it doesn’t work on our live site which does have an SSL.

    Hello tinsie08,

    if you can not save any settings, I think this is not the same problem as above. Anyway, can you look at your debug.log file and tell what messages are shown for wp-forecast and give the settings from the upper section?

    wp-forecast is not affected by any cache settings, it has its own caching system for the weather data and there are no known dependencies from SSL.
