Nice work. Thanks for all your special effort.

My skin is now working, but I am getting an error in the log:

Weather & Sky\Weather & Sky.ini - [WEATHER.COMSuperParent] -- (Fetch error) The URL does not use a recognized protocol (ErrorCode=12006)

(I'm using WeatherComJSONMeasures5Day.inc)

Never mind -- I see the problem. I have included an inc file from xxenium, and his code still tries to use the old URL.

I will be posting an update to most of my weather skins sometime over this weekend, if time permits.

Excellent! That is the charm of the @Include .inc file approach. Isolating the "data" from the "display" really makes updating things a lot simpler.

Honestly, I was debating whether to continue to support ANY weather skins with all the changes at TWC this year... it can get depressing! O.O

But seeing as I live a boring, retiring, uneventful, dull life (gosh, now I'm really depressed! :lol:) ...
I can manage to fill my time supporting my skins and older skins for author who have moved on. :Whistle

Hehe.. I do get a sinking feeling when I see a post that starts with "Weather skin...."

"Doris, cancel my appointments and clear my calendar!" ...Doris is my goldfish.
