are you shore that the RegExp are for yahoo feed, cause your url is for yahoo and the regexp are for weather.com

edit: try with this

Code: Select all

URL=http://xml.weather.com/weather/local/USFL0545?cc=*&unit=f&dayf=6
it works
Zero at programing, zero at writing codes, so far 2 at making images
But I'm good at copy/paste, and I not always like this

You can just change the URL from AccuWeather to something else.. You need to use a skin specifially designed for Yahoo/Weather.com/MSN Weather.. :)

If you want to use your current skin, you need to edit the RegExp= and StringIndex= lines (and that's not easy).

Then it sounds like something is keeping Rainmeter from connecting to the internet.
