  • weather widget?

    Investigated a lot but I can't find a resource for creating a special weather widget.
    I mean a widget listing some cities of the world like here (right on the bottom "world weather").
    Thanks for helping.

    There is no Weather Widget in vB. You would have to create a custom one with either Static HTML or PHP Direct Execution. Try asking over at www.vbulletin.org for help.

      I know weather.com do a widget builder that you can copy and paste the code for into a widget but I've a feeling it's only for a single city (it's a little restricted outside the US...).

          Thanks, yes there is no widget Steve, just looking for a code to place in. I did some hours of google and bing search but I can't find anything. Trevor, yes for single cities are enough sites available.

            search your city. click embed. copy paste code.

            Each city has a different "code" against it. If you can find a list that matches all codes and their respective cities, using geoip you can create an add-on that will display weather based on visitor location.

              Could you explain how to use that? Because I'd like to have a weather widget on my forum as well. I'm new to forum building, but I'm getting better.

                create a new static html widget and paste codes in there.

                I'm sorry I can't explain the second method. This involves rather complex codings and quite a bit of work which I can't afford atm. If I even make this, I'll release it to vb.org.
