gardenia-penn Featured By Owner Aug 14, 2016
Everything works fine, but unfortunately the weather code is sorely outdated on all sides.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?
000exo000 Featured By Owner Apr 16, 2016
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.
tomH3 Featured By Owner May 10, 2016
Thanks, works fine now with that fix. Much appreciated!
tatersandeggs Featured By Owner Apr 4, 2016
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?
bigcooki3 Featured By Owner Mar 28, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
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.

This is Gratefull
Mothsou Featured By Owner Jan 11, 2016
This is AMAZING however im stupid at this, yahoo changed their HTML formats and apparently it doesn't work with the weather skin on Encoded. I've been searching everywhere including the WebParser information, however it seems outdated too. Is there a way to make the weather skin work without just having an empty box? :T Help would be very much appreciated!!
EColi452 Featured By Owner Jan 14, 2016
Go to; allow it to use your location if in Chrome, otherwise go to your home town; goto that page; look at the end of the URL and see what it is, e.g. USCA3343; copy just that into the code; leave the rest and refresh!

I had the same issue and looked at the raimeter page on it which cleared a lot up.
Mothsou Featured By Owner Jan 14, 2016
Oh man thanks alot! You're a life saver! 8D
However i had to play with the link on the original code and i just replaced the US*zipcode* rather then the whole
bottom half of the URL. It works though, thanks SO much!!! :iconsnugplz:

I'm having an issue where the Weather Widget with the divider isn't displaying the correct temperature. I changed some of the coordinates of the text, which is all I've done I believe, but despite having the correct weather code it's displaying the incorrect temperature by a degree of like +18 degrees or so. I recently upgraded my RAM amount to 24 which I know is an offset and is not recommended but could this have anything to with that?

Is there a way to set the date text as bolded?
gamerkinglm Featured By Owner Oct 11, 2015
Don't know if you're still supporting this, I just have a quick question. How would I get it to have the whole player constantly showing without having to mouse over? I see the MouseOverAction=!execute, but I don't know how to get it to show. Thank you, love the skin.

Cedup Featured By Owner May 22, 2015
I wonder if there is a way to change the words displayed. I'm German, so I would like to see it saying "Mai" instead of "May", and like "FR" instead of "FRI".
Renaming those via Rainmeter doesnt seem to work?!
Any suggs?

Hey, everything about the skin works for me except that the HDD meter is set to Drive X: 
The problem is i only have a drive D: and C: and i cant seem to find the variable to change this. Any help???
c0deous Featured By Owner Edited Jan 13, 2015
Go to Documents>Rainmeter>Skins>Encoded>Variables.  Then open in notepad.  Edit the line that says HDD1=X: and change is to HDD1=C:
Save and right click on HDD Meter tile and do refresh.  It will change to whatever drive letter you set it to.
you can do the same thing for HDD2 and HDD3 to set default drives.

Is there any chance to that we can change colors? Like I want that clock's red a bit more darker. Well done anyway, cool skin :peace:
