Hi!

Now it only shows the forecast for 2 days (today and tomorrow). Is this normal?

Regards,

Yes, officially Yahoo gives 2 days forecast only.

But... a small hack will give you 5 days Wink

Hi Yuri,

Tried changing the parameter in the XML file but didn't work. Still 2 days.

My code is 744651 (which is for Oeiras, Portugal).

Thanks

You don't need to change XML file. You have to take POXX0082 from XML file and set it as your location ID in the Weather Forecast properties.

Yuri, thanks a lot for updating the Weather Forecast plugin promptly. As a Russian native speaker (yes, I am), I would like to offer some help in providing proper Russian translations for weather terms as reported in the Weather.com forecasts (such as 'Fair', 'Mostly Cloudy', 'Scattered T-Storms', 'Haze', 'AM Snow Showers', 'Clouds Early / Clearing Late', etc.). So if you feel interested in that, do let me know how I can reach you via the Internet.

I've just noticed that the PM buttons are now available to me (that wasn't true before I submitted my 3rd post). Also, the required information can be found on your profile page so please confirm your interest via PM or email and I contact you.

here are the screenshot of 4.0 and 5.0 versions

Duh... I'd say the name of this topic pretty much indicates that to be a given. I have of course installed the update. Thanks though for stopping by =D>

Yuri,
Since my message hasn't been answered am I right in thinking that you're not going to make any changes/corrections to the Russian names of weather conditions as seen in the Russian version of the Weather Forecast plugin 5.0? Many weather conditions are still displayed either completely untranslated or translated into Russian inconsistently/incorrectly.

To supply (almost) all the Russian translations I just need to know if the original weather conditions names come from the METAR codes or you get them already interpreted from METAR into plain English in the xml file from Yahoo (previously from the Weather Channel website). I have collected a list of most original weather conditions names found in weather forecasts from the Weather Channel and/or Yahoo Weather. If needed, I can supply the Russian translations for the METAR codes too but the METAR codes give a large amount of combinations so the translation list would grow significantly (and obviously not all the METAR codes are used there, if any).

Of course, if you think Прояснение is an adequate term for the English 'Fair', Обильный снег for 'Snow Showers' (just to mention few) and so on, well, then it's your plugin and you can treat the Russian language in it as you like.

Hi, I reinstalled Windows 7 and latest version of TLB.

But there is a problem, I can't install Weather Forecast skin: <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://ethsza.deviantart.com/gallery/#/d2l0r6m">http://ethsza.deviantart.com/gallery/#/d2l0r6m</a><!-- m --> (download .zip there).
Skin Installer does not see Stripe Weather Forecast folder.

I think this is because of "Changed the skins format"?

How do I install this Weather Forecast skin again?

Thanks.
