Everything works fine, but unfortunately the weather code is sorely outdated on all sides. Updating it via rainmeter threads isn't proven to be working, either.

If a small update can be made to the code for the weather widgets, that'd be fantastic.

The music player doesn't completely work with Spotify. The pause and next/previous buttons work, but it doesn't show anything, no artist name, no track name, no album cover, nothing.

Hi, great skin!
The weather doesn't seem to be working anymore...It was working fine (with the xml fix) until about 3 days ago. Any suggested fixes?

Same issue. I've messed around with the .txt files trying to get something to work, but nothing seems to fix it as of right now. Hopefully there will be a fix in the next few days.

Replace the current section with this. Change the woeid and F in the URL as necessary.

Thanks, works fine now with that fix. Much appreciated!

Hi-  I got my weather skin working again by changing the URL line and using a WOEID location.
The new code should look like this;


(The w=12798462 is my location)

Make sure to change the ?p to ?w and get a Where on Earth ID from

Hey so it seems Yahoo has completely changed the way their weather system works, it looks like the old API system is just gone entirely. What exactly can I do about this, or should I just wait for an update?

There's a nice simple fix (for now), simply edit your weather config where the [URL] line is and change to . Leave the rest of the URL line the same. 
Yahoo seems to be slowly getting rid of their old weather API and requiring OAUTH authentication with every instance that runs it, so it's anyone's guess how long this fix will work but it is definitely working for the time being.
