Hi! Recently I ran in to a problem. The widget hasn't been displaying the little weather icon next to the current temperature for a while now. I tried reinstalling it, and when I searched for my city's location code I noticed that the location code in the link has changed from HUVE0073 to 53227c57d968b1d129f18903bae8a7faa528f8769a7579d0286bd47b7c16cf99. I tested the widget with a few other cities where the location code was in the old format and they all displayed everything correctly, so I assume that this 'bug' has something to do with the website changing the location code's format. I know, this bug is nothing big, I just wanted to give some feedback on it. Thanks!
Be careful not to make it too low or you could get blocked from accessing the weather data altogether.
Thanks for the fast reply. I will probably experiment a bit. With the dafault settings i think it gets the temperatures when i boot in windows and keeps that number. Only if i manually refresh it, it changes.
All you have to do is delete the degrees symbol and replace it with °.
You type it by holding ALT and then pressing 2 4 8 on the numpad then letting go of ALT.
Then save and refresh the skin
In your case, change the line that says:
FGColor=255,255,255,255to the following:
Also, to switch between Fahrenheit and Celsius, change the line that says:
TempUnit=M(M stands for metric)
