Yahoo5Weather shows only 1 day under beta 2.12 135 6 Months, 3 Weeks ago  
I've been using Yahoo5Weather for quite a while and it has always shown 5 days (as advertised!) Under the beta 2.12 135 it shows only 1 day. Have no idea why this would occur only in the beta version. I posted the same topic in Beta Versions topic 20411.

Hi, I'm the author of Yahoo5Weather.
On my pc, It works fine under b135.
What "Weather Local" are you setting?
You can clear (keeping empty) it to return to use default value, then see if it works fine.
If there is any question, please tell me with more detail, even attach the image of your setting.

Works fine here too. I tried the default and 'Tampere' locations.

The failure seems to be intermittent.

Here is the YAHOO url:
weather.yahoo.com/united-states/ohio/columbus-2383660/

woeid:2383660 and 43240 failed yesterday; today those two are OK.

columbus,oh,us failed yesterday and still fails.

Screen shots are attached for columbus,oh,us from today and yesterday.


Hmmm, don't know how attach more that one gif. Let me know if you want screen shots showing error message and skin settings.

YES, I did refresh again (with same settings) and again it failed.

Yes, if you type "columbus,oh,us" that will always fail, it's because the weather_location_search_engine, now using, cannot found it.

And, direct input name is sometime cannot got the correct place, because there is many place also call "columbus", but search-engine will return the first result.

So, please use "zip code" or "wc: code" or "woeid: code", when you cannot use place name.

ps. To fix this issue, I must to find other weather_location_search_engine, but it is a bit difficult, so I don't know what time to complete.

OK, I will use the zip code.

Even though that seems to work now, it did in fact fail on previous occasions. Same for woeid. I'm puzzled that it would fail one day and then work the next day. But, if it does not occur again, I will not worry about it and will assume that the failure on previous occasions was due to something outside the control of Yahoo5Weather skin.

However, the tool tip does state that zip code, city-state-country, and woeid will work. Should not that be changed to say that only zip code and woeid will work?

Thanks for you help. I like the 5-day display that you provide.
