Request to mod GetWeather plugin

  • Looks like no one responded to you. First of all AM means any time between 12:01 midnight and 12:00 noon. PM is the rest of the time. Do you still need help? I was getting ready to look at modifying the plugin to display the temperature in both F and C.

    Try this plugin out:

    works really nice and does everything you want. I recommend using the beta 3 version. It works really nice.

    i agree with seanrox – however use caution – that plugin makes your site not valid HTML – some people are concerned about that

    AM = Ante Meridiem
    PM = Post Meridiem

    Ante means before (as in words like ante-natal or anterior), post means after. Meridiem means midday!

    I’ve modified the GetWeather plugin to display 24-hour time by setting a new variable. And I also added the display of temperatures in both F and C degrees. If anyone is interested, please let me know.

    WeatherIcon looks really good, but seemed to be overkill for my needs.

    ladydelaluna: with a couple of small changes to source files, I was able to get it to validate 100%. I’ve sent the code to the plugin creator so maybe it will get added into the final release.

    Huh? My site has always been valid XHTML and I’ve been using WeatherIcon it for like… ever. 😉

    I think the problem is just the configuration you’re using (i.e. you can’t have it output in <li>‘s if you don’t wrap it in some <ul>‘s).

    I put the code on it just like you had it in the readme or wherever, VB… I took it out because it instantly made my site invalid… 🙁

    Well I’m sorry, but then you obviously didn’t ’cause this should make valid code (copied from the v2.x readme):

    <ul>
    <?php WeatherIcon('station=KLFK&before=<li>&after=</li>'); ?>
    </ul>

    I take making valid code very seriously:
