If it's not too much of a hassle, could you please -and just briefly- point to which file/line do I need to replace with my custom text for the sidebar worlds?

I tried my luck editing the skin, but none of the lines I experimented with seem to do the trick.
Enigma is a tightly interconnected set of included files, which makes it versatile but also difficult to change. :uhuh:

That said, the problem with my last suggestion is all three world skins use the same included meter file 'Enigma\Sidebar\World\world.inc', so changing the name for one of them means it will be the same name used in all three. :thumbdown:

If you only use 1 world skin then you can change 'Enigma\Sidebar\World\world.inc' to show the name you want by editing the [City] section:

Code: Select all

;-----------------------
; TEXT

[City]
Meter=STRING
MeterStyle=StyleWorldCity
; MeasureName=MeasureWeatherCity
Text=Your City Name

I do not see the issue with how the skins work now, making this change breaks the other 2 world skins.
So I do not recommend making changes that cripple the skin. :twisted:

That's why it's an Enigma...

Yes, it is an Enigma, wrapped in a Conundrum, surrounded by Infinite Possibilities to break it!


With the final demise of Yahoo weather, I expect we are going to see posts asking how to "fix" many of the older popular skins. :???:

Many of the original authors of those skins are no longer active. :uhuh:

I have converted a few (DINAJ2, Elementary, Circuitous2, and Enigma) to use Weather.com data, but I think it is better to wait until it is apparent the original author is not available to make the changes before posting mods to their creations. :oops:

Agree. Hoping at least a few of them will make the needed adjustments, to make the skins to work again.
