2. Find your local
3. Right click on web and click view source
4. Search "wc:" ,there should only one matched weather code
5. Combine wc code to the RSS link like samples bellow & set degree type in weadegreetype=C/F

Since Yahoo weather is hard to find Taiwan woeid.
I like old MSN Weather widget more, should it come back?

If you want to go back to using the old addon, you can download the last version of Shadow4-Widgets.r2skin-addon that used MSN Weather, like from
www.rainlendar.net/download/b110/Shadow4-Widgets.r2skin-addon

Modify:
First, rename Shadow4-Widgets.r2skin-addon to Shadow4-Widgets.r2skin-addon.zip (add .zip), and unzip it.

It's for Shadow4 1.9, but the lastest Rainlendar is Shadow4 1.10, so need modify it into for Shadow4 1.10.
=> Find the "skin" file (no extension), use text editor which support UTF-8 to open it, you will see
Shadow4
1.9
Change "1.9" to "1.10", then save it.

And its lua scripts is base on lua51.dll, but the lastest Rainlendar is use lua52.dll, so need modify weather.lua & rss.lua into match lua52.dll.
=> Find "scripts/weather.lua" & "scripts/rss.lua", use text editor to open them. Replace strings "gfind" to "gmatch" ("weather.lua" have two place, and "rss.lua" only has one place),
then save them.

Finally, re-zip all files and rename back.


Ooh, it seem a bit difficult if you are not familiar with Rainlendar.
If you have installed the latest Shadow4-Widgets.r2skin-addon that using Google Weather, and cannot modify it by yourself, you can download and install the following patch file, it will replace Google Weather to MSN Weather.

Logged in to say thanks anoob! Been using Rainlendar for many years and have a skin I made which I've been using for a while and don't want to change. Just updated to 2.11 and my weather didn't work. This fixed it.
