  • adding a weather feed help?

    I would like to start a new thread that shows a live weather feed, then lock it down so users can get a forecast. I have the code which is below, but my problem is i have no idea where i am supposed to paste it?

    Can someone please give me a step by step of where to paste the code, many thanks in advance

    <iframe style="overflow:hidden;border:none" allowtransparency="true" width="475" height="295" align="left" src="http://www.weather-forecast.com/loca...3dayfree.shtml" scrolling="no" frameborder="0"></iframe>

    You can paste it into any template... Good choices are header, navbar, FORUMHOME.

    Admin CP -> Styles & Templates -> Style Manager -> Edit Templates (On All Style Options Dropdown.)

      Sorry, not a pc genius here. I am still a little lost. I would like the weather feed window to appear in a dedicated thread, then simply lock the thread so it displays nothing but the live weather. Does that make sense?

        The post itself can't have live updates, the feed imports it from current rss feed status, when there is an update it will create another thread.

            I do not know.

            What is the source feed? That's what you need to fill in on the rss feed page.

              Here is the source, at the bottom it gives you the code and says to copy and paste it to the web page

                    That has nothing to do with importing rss feeds.
                    You can put this iframe inside the footer or header template or anywhere you want it to visually appear. I don't recommend to put it inside a post.
