AccuWeeather code in Canada.

Post by bornlivedie »

I followed the link http://www.rainmeter.net/locate_code from the AccuWeeather text doc. and I get a 404: Not found. I would love to get the weather going and am wondering if theres another way to get the code. The Rain skin I'm using is Rainmeter version 1.2 rev 440 (64bit).

Could anyone offer some advice? Thanks in advance.

There is no skin that comes with Rainmeter 1.2 that uses AccuWeather. If you have added a third party skin that uses AccuWeather, get rid of it. That Rainmeter specific AccuWeather feed has been shut down.

That "Rain" skin I am not familiar with at all. Do you have a link to it?

No, but just downloaded and checked it out. It is indeed using the dead AccuWeather feed for the weather skin. And to anticipate your next question, no. There is no way to change that skin to use a different feed without MAJOR rewriting of the code that I suspect you are not quite ready for yet.

You need to just use an alternative weather skin. All the rest of the stuff in that suite should work ok, just use a different weather skin. I recommend this:

It's great fun. Soon you will be writing your own skins, and that is when it really gets fun.
