I don't think webparser works for iplocationtools.com... when I try to use debug=2 for it, it doesn't make any dump file at all...
Ragingwasabi's avatar
mine makes a dump file. but it says forbidden from accessing. from researching it turns out the website requires u use a proper web browser to access it, webparser can't access it. there is no solution to this. just have to fund another site that works lol
Doesn't work. I can see only '°C'.
Mine is stuck on dectecting... :(
Never mind it's working now :)

How long did it take for it to work for you?

This is staying stuck at "Detecting" for me.
How to switch to Fahrenheit? I wouldn't mind Celsius so much but it says "48C" when it's actually "48F"...kinda bothers me a bit...otherwise I love it!

What about if my IP was  my ISP's HQ!!!???
TweaknFreak's avatar
It gives me the wrong location code. Infact the site you use  iplocationtools.com is the one that points out wrong location. Do you have any idea of any other and better IP locator site ??

It may just be your ISP. Go to whereisip.net and see what it spits out. The location of your IP may not be precise enough, you know? For example, I live in a small town, so my IP is located in the nearest large city.

On the other hand, if its nowhere near where you live, well then that's a problem XD

Not Working... the settings.ini shows my code but the weather skin itself is totaly blank.

Oh ... now it's working ..... great job Dude! ...

Very nice thought and good design
it gave me the right city and temp, but still says Celsius. I can't seem to get Fahrenheit as a choice even if I click on it!
Nice job overall!
