I have a Weather Widget that I made for personal use a while back that no longer works. I don't know how to fix it since I'm not to great with scripts. Is there anybody out there that can get it to work for me?? Thanks

Looking.

RedBuzzard, I can't do anything with it. It seems to be weather.com , or something other than the currently working weather underground script.

 

I have been contacted by one of our main weather gadget makers with the same problem. All his have quit working and people are contacting him.

 

My guess, the weather feed has been stopped, like what happened a few years ago when I had to reupload my entire gallery.

 

Sorry.

I was just told that my latest weather wasn't working, but it works fine here, on Windows8.1

Philly tried for me and his worked as well. Carillo, to be specific.

 

Only glitch is that it won't let you type a city name for some locations, dunno why. ZIP codes work fine.

 

He's on 7.  

 

Looking into it, betting it a weather.com feed problem again. I'll probably have a gallery full of non working weather, other than the most recent ones.

Very helpful link Jim, thanks! 

I wish someone good in scripts will help us with a new working weather template.

There is always a huge issue with the harmless weather gadgets/widgets, most antivirus programs think that are Trojans, and the most important, Google think that are malware and giving warnings!!! ! 

Weather gadgets are saving files in user’s computer’s and communicate with Internet….
Of course, this is suspicious and the behavior of Trojans or Viruses… 

Any idea about this huge issue?

Hear that. Love the fact that they made us change everything to suit them and now they just shut us down. Oh and the fact that porthole link is dead

Jim, I was checking yours out yesterday and they (your weathers) all seemed to be working (except for the older ones) on XP. Yes I know , I'm still using XP LOL.

Nikos, as per my video I sent you, I am currently using a good working template. sViz made it.  My last 4 or 5 weather gadgets work fine on Windows8, and on Windows7 everything I have made over the last couple years works as well.

 

Anyone wishing to make/update their own can use one of mine, just swap graphics out.  

 

See video below.

Too many users are complaining about it with emails or comments, personally I don't care because I never use antivirus programs...

This is the template I've been using, modified a tad.

For some reason, it immediately crashes on Windows 8. But I think it's fine on 7.

Glad I kept my Yahoo Widgets before they stopped providing it, everything including the Weather Widget that uses weather.com still works perfectly.
