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

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

If we could figure out where their feed is coming from maybe we can fix our existing without rebuilding

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.

Can we ask sViz if she can correct it from crashing in Windows 8 Jim?

Go for it, I haven't been able to reach her in a good while.

That would be a Weather.com TOS violation.  I'd say the Yahoo feed is working because maybe Yahoo uses their corporate license.

there are a few services that provide free, legal to use & open feeds (Accuweather is not one of them btw).

an example would be Yahoo!'s feeds: http://developer.yahoo.com/weather/ . the geocoding has to be done in YQL.

that would still mean you would have to the parsing of the feed with regular expressions and pass over that data to DesktopX. this is not rocket science, but it would require a current DesktopX user that knows how to do this or willing and capable to learn how to do this.

That is precisely what DX was supposed to be about. That is, creator/user input. Now that the creators have gone, the users won't be far behind.   I blame FF and Chrome for the oh, oh, oh..... higher number, it HAS to be better....mentality. Most people already know MS doesn't follow that rule. Windows 8,,,,,har-de-har-har.

DesktopX being a legacy (retired) app, I'm betting finding that person won't be easy. No interest anymore.

Jim do you know what I need to change in order to abbreviate the weekdays. I am playing with the TN Brat widget and I need to change them from showing the full day (ie: Monday to Mon). Any ideas? Also it's showing US at the end of the Location

Looks to be controlled by the script. I do not know how to alter it. Sorry.
