i love this plugin.

Can I give it zero stars?
By ,

Upgraded to new version after only minimally satisfied with previous version. Couldn't find it anywhere on the admin panel after upgrading. Drives me nuts when developers make plugins like this and never say where it is and you can't find it.

Tried to use my own iconset... forget about it. The code provided has an error in it. I went to three different people I know who understand this kind of stuff way better than me and none of them could figure out how to get the iconset to work.

I know this is free but how good can their other plugins be if this is what they lead with?

Stay away.

It works, but support is horrid
By , for WP 4.1.1

There is little to no support just like their regular site if you are a Weather Underground user. Many support posts go unanswered for years. Sad to think that they do not want to support their software they took the time to create.

Non functional in the latest version
By , for WP 4.1

I've used this plugin since August 23, 2013, when we launched our site. This weather plugin has worked flawlessly. With this update, the widget no longer fits into the sidebar, it does not respond in any obvious way to changes made in the widget settings, and it now does not even have a forecast, telling me it cannot find my location, which it had not troule finding for the past 19 months.

Have the developers taken any notice of all the poor comments since the update? Everyone is saying the same thing. And there is no fix from the developer.

Way to trash a really good, reliable plugin. I hope Weather Underground is taking note and can find themselves a more competent developer.

Multi-word city names are broken
By ,

Multi-word city names are broken and from the reviews have been for years. For a something like that to be broken for so long with only workarounds posted when having multi-word names is quite common seems surprising.

Can't find my location
By ,

I've tried this plugin for a site in a city in Ontario, Canada and a city in the Dominican Republic. In both cases it could not find my location.

These are CITIES! Why can't it find my location?

The plugin is useless to me.

Great weather report-forecast
By , for WP 4.0.1

Only have problems with my language, otherwise is great.

Hate the 2.x version
By , for WP 4.0.1

I just want a small and simple iconic weather display, not something that takes over my whole sidebar. In addition, wunderground now spills out of the widget boundaries.
As a result I went back to 1.2.5.1 which gets the job done and looks good, staying within the widget boundaries. Installed on my second web site, but after looking at the out put, again put 1.2.5.1 on that site also. That looks good and does what I want.
New isn't always better.
If I was rating the 1.2.5.1 version it would definitely be 5 stars!

Nice weather plugin
By , for WP 4.0.1

It could be best around, but still not there yet.

One of them that never showed different data on service website and your website. Beleieve me many weather plugins miss there, for one reason or other not important here.

A bit plain looking, but fast
By , for WP 4.0.1

A bit boring looking, but gets the job done.
