    As of today the weather forecast in MP started returning the following error (for any city):
    "Bad or missing query parameters in request."

    This happens on both my RC1 installs and seems to be related to the forumthread on this link:
    Weather Modules GONE MAD!? - Chat About It! - DotNetNuke



    Does anyone know how to fix this?

    Hi Mercbac,

    I can confirm exactly the same issue as you have experienced.

    See they have tightened up their licensing as well. Does this impact Media POrtal?
