Weather acting wierd... 2 Years, 8 Months ago  
Hello all,

Benn working on skinning and modding the weather widget from Shadow 4 and I've run across a weird behavior I'm hoping someone can explain.

I have several weather locations saved (in the skins.xml file). And everything worked great till I fired up my PC this morning. Now, when I select a few of the locations the app updates, but appears to hang with a "Refreshing..." message and N/A ? or all icons.

Like I say a few of these locations work fine, the ones I'm having problems with are the ones for Oakdale, Stockton and Los Angeles. I've verified the wc codes, and they seem to be correct. I have now errors in the Rainlendar log. And I've checked MSN Weather and they have reports for these cities displayed. I'm stumped.

Any help would be appreciated.

Here's the code from my skins.xml file if needed.

<variable name="Weather_location" default="%X" window="Weather" values="Oakdale:weather.msn.com/RSS.aspx?wealocations=wc:USCA0789%26weadegreetype=F;Stockton:http://weather.msn.com/RSS.aspx?wealocations=wc:USCA1100%26weadegreetype=F;Monterey:http://weather.msn.com/RSS.aspx?wealocations=wc:USCA0724%26weadegreetype=F;Mendocino:http://weather.msn.com/RSS.aspx?wealocations=wc:USCA0690%26weadegreetype=F;Fort Bragg:weather.msn.com/RSS.aspx?wealocations=wc:USCA0394%26weadegreetype=F;Eureka:http://weather.msn.com/RSS.aspx?wealocations=wc:USCA0360%26weadegreetype=F;Los Angeles:weather.msn.com/RSS.aspx?wealocations=wc:USCA0638%26weadegreetype=F;Glasgow:http://weather.msn.com/RSS.aspx?wealocations=wc:UKXX0061%26weadegreetype=F;" description="Location of the weather feed." />


Thanks.

Seems to be "weather.msn.com" closed the support for RSS.

You can switch to use "GWeater.r2skin" (Google Weather www.rainlendar.net/cms/index.php?option=com_kunena&Itemid=42&func=view&id=14939&catid=6#14939)

If you still wish to use MSN Weather, you can change string "weather.msn.com" to "weather.uk.msn.com", because "weather.uk.msn.com" seems still support RSS.

OK, I incorporated the new Gweather widget into my skin, and it works fine. The strange thing is I didn't change the RSS address in my skin.xml file. It's still pointed to

weather.msn.com/RSS.aspx?wealocations=wc:USCA0789%26weadegreetype=F


But like I said, it works fine. And my local locations that didn't work yesterday, (or this morning when I fired it up) are working again. How wierd.
