    Information on weather providers (applicable only to me).
    Сurrent weather: MSN - works, but little data; AccuWeather - works, all data; - works, but little data. Yahoo, WorldWeather Online, Weather Underground, Open Weather Map, PreviMeteo, Weather2 not works.
    Forecast for several days: works only MSN, AccuWeather,
    Hourly forecast and graphic information: works only, but in the graphic information there is no info on pressure, humidity, precipitation, cloud coverage.
    Historical data: Weather Underground has blocked all free keys, so there is no data in this section.

    Dear community,
    based on the helpful feedback from @123vak123 the final consolidation step for the WorldWeather and WorldWeatherLite plugin has been completed, please find the latest build in the first post of this thread.

    What means these changes:
    • currently WorldWeather supports only weather providers like MSN, AccuWeather and, all other providers has been removed completely and irreversible
    • the image feature should work now as expected, but for the moment web based video support is disabled internally
    • the configuration part of both plugins has been reworked, therefore the first configuration call can end in error messages; in this case please configure the settings carefully again
    Next steps:
    • in the next few days I'll try to monitor feedback and download counts to decide, if it makes sense to analyze updated provider API's or to include suggestions (thx to @ajs for your support)
    • installer files will be created and uploaded to the plugin repository

    Cheers, Micropolis

    Not sure if World Weather has died or whether I have screwed it up big time???::unsure:
    I noticed over the past few days that the current and forecast conditions are not beeing updated (Note I had the same problem a while back with WW Lite and switched to the full version which has been working up till now, see screenshopts below of WW compared to the MS weather app.

    I was using version v1.09 and noted a v1.10 was available albeit from this thread rather than the MP Extension Manager, after manually installing from the zip file I found I was not able to add any new locations and when I ran MP with the pre installed location I got an error and MP was hung see next screenshot, requiring close via the Taskmanager.

    I then uninstalled the plugin and deleted all traces and reinstalled version v1.09 but still could not detect a valid location, also same after uninstall of the full version and install of WW Lite, see following screenshots.

    @joecrow What weather provider do you use in WW?
    I think it can´t be compared with MS weather - here the differences between Accuweather (in WW) and MS weather are also significant.
    Just like to mention that the weatherdata delivered from Accuweather are more precise (compared with a weatherstation here in my garden), MS weather is always very different to my measurements and Accuweather.
    Finally, here WW works as it should ;)
    FYI. my version of WW is 1.9.1 from here: World Weather
