Rainmeter Location URL not working

Post by Anakha56 »

Greetings All,

I am new to the whole world of rainmeter and so far from what I have seen of HUDVision I am really impressed. However I have encountered a problem with the weather widget. When I open the ini file it tells me to go to:

http://www.rainmeter.net/locate_code

However that page is no longer available, I keep getting a:
Error 404: NOT FOUND!
Your browser cannot find the document corresponding to the URL you typed in.
So I did some Googling and found this site:

http://uzaclan.com/locate_code/locate.php

However it cannot locate my city and country yet if I visit accuweather's site I can find my city and country just fine.

So the question is how do I get my code for HUDVision weather? I live in Amanzimtoti, Kwa-Zulu Natal, South Africa.

Many Thanks for any help!

The AccuWeather feed does not work anymore, as the folks at AccuWeather decided to stop it. You need to find a weather skin based on Weather.com, Yahoo.com, or MSN Weather.
