Thank you for information. I've requested credentials for Weather API. When I get answer, I'll fix Weather Monitor plugin.

RE: Weather Forecast - Yahoo service retired
Thanks for the quick fix, Yuri! The plugin is working again now, but unfortunately it calculates the pressure incorrectly. I think it considers the input is in millibars, while its data XML (stored in %AppData%) shows the input is in inches of mercury:
Code:
<yweather:units distance="mile" pressure="inchHg" speed="m/h" temperature="F"/>
Other units seem to be OK.

Also, it would be nice to update timezones.xml file which is from 2011. It's wrong for Russia at least, where e.g. MSD/MSK should be "+0300", otherwise the weather update time displayed in the tooltip has a one-hour shift.

There is another minor glitch with it: when a 24-hour time format is used, everything is displayed correctly except the "12:MM AM" times from <lastBuildDate> XML field, which are shown as "12:MM" and not the "00:MM". Really noticed it only while composing this bug report, so I can't say yet if there is a similar problem with "12:MM PM" times.

BTW, concerning that update time shown in the tooltip - maybe it's worth to display the real weather update time stored in the <pubDate> XML field instead of the time of a last data request? I think it'd make much more sense from a user's point of view.

Sad RE: Weather Forecast - Yahoo service retired
Just a few days ago the Weather Forecast plugin stopped working for me. No data displayed at all. I uninstalled it, rebooted, then installed the current version, but still just the same. The popup box displaying current conditions just tells me over and over 'N/A', and there's no forecast. Is this a terminal death now, or is there a fix for this?

Please post here the value of the Location field from the Weather Monitor properties. I'll check it.

RE: Weather Forecast - Yahoo service retired
Thank you, Yuri. Unfortunately I can't give that info, because when I tried to fix the issue here I clicked on the Verify button and got this error message:

Quote:Failed to connect to weather-ydn-yql.media.yahoo.com port 443: Bad access

I then entered my city (Exeter, Uk), and the Verify button got the same error response. I didn't think at the time to record the numerical location before trying that, so I don't know what it was.

I've tried allowing all outgoing requests in the Windows Firewall (via Windows Firewall Control), and also made a rule allowing tlbhost.exe to make outward connections, but nothing changes. Any ideas?

When I updated Windows recently I started getting failures and had to switch Internet Connection setting from Use Windows Internet Settings to Direct Connection to the Internet.

In my case I tried both of those, and it made no difference.
