@canuckken Thanks I figured it out finally! I have never done anything like this, and it has consumed my life figuring out all this code stuff lol. Any suggestions on where to learn?

@pyro_angel @Ralston87 Go to weather.com and type in your city and state in the search box and hit enter. At the end of the web address there should be a code like this USMN0503. Copy that code. Now right click on the weather panel and choose Edit Skin. Under [Variables] type in Location= and paste that weather.com code. Also, if you want to change the temp to Fahrenheit, below that type Unit=F

For example, my variables look like this:


FontFace=BankGothic Lt BT

Hello. Newbie here. I downloaded the file but I can't install it. I tried to open rainstaller.cfg in WordPad and I saw some info but not on how to install it. How can I install it? Sorry its my first time to try this things out.

Ok I know this is getting old, but how do I work the weather thing. I understand that I go to weather.com and copy the code from the url, problem is that I'm in the US and for us (at least I think) weather.com just uses our area codes. Now area codes are just 5 numbers not codes like canuckken's example. I tried just putting in my area code and got nothing, also tried putting in my state and town initials along with my area code and nothing. Am I just being stupid here or is there some trick that I'm missing?

if I don't have objectdock, i would spend some time to suite it as part of my desktop. I have downloaded it and I would say it's a master piece. very unique design.

This is great, but I am having some problems with the weather not always showing up. Usually it works, but after a half hour or so all the fields will be blank with no picture or at least one of them will be missing until I refresh all. Some times refreshing doesnt even fix it.
