Sorry! There is no data available! Click Settings to update your weather preferences. I put in the data and still get that. Why is that?

Of course you have. Apologies for such obvious questions
Here is something interesting. Similar to your issue. Check this out and let me know if that helped. Also try this:
Disable all plugins except for Weather and see if that works.
Good lucky

I disabled one plugin then check. Then I try all of them no Weather yet. I enabled all of them back on. Still have the same problem. I think it's something to with a wrapper in there. Look at this.

I got the connection a few times and still no connect there. I feel like this now

I think the Weather is full of bugs. Why won't it load in? The News Plugin you have went in just fine on another site. Did almost the same thing to the Weather plugin. Load it in the SQL the same way. It should have work. To me the Weather Program gets a 1 for bad for bugs.In 5 Hours. I deleting the Weather out of the Web Site. I found another somewhere else i'm going to try.

Just forget this. I'm deleting the Weather out of here. I had to re program the Files to make it work. When I ask for help I don't get the right Answers. Some support Geeklog has. I thought Support help people to fix the problem. Going to look for another one to put in that has support there.

Well this is defenitely not the kind of feedback I'd like to hear nor any of the people who devote their time to answer other people's issues here. I tried to help you within my abilities and even offered onsite help, which you didn't want apparently.
By and large the Weather plugins works (I've showed you the examples) and I reckon your issues are related either to your server environment or ... I don't really know. Actually I do but my lips are sealed

That Weather Crash my friend's Web Site. Now I have to pay for it.

I totally agree that it is the server environment that screwed up some of the plugins. Weather, newsfeed, ip-plot where the plugin has to extract data from an outside site. I got http 500 server error on all of those, I have uninstall those plugins since and my site is ok. If weather is something that is important on your site, I may suggest Hamweather, use the perl version, the php version also get screwed up by the server from time to time, why it only fails periodically I have no idea. Hopt that helps.

It would seem to me that since you helped your friend out, one, friend will be understanding or two, you learned your lesson the hard way. Did you charge your friend to set this up? It really seems to me that you lacked the skills necessary to install the weather plugin. I make this assumption by your many posts on this topic. As far as it totally corrupting your friends website, well, I have installed this plugin many times and if something went wrong, it was always easy to remove and get back to where it was originally.

No I didn't change nothing to get that error. Only thing is to get it going in there. Then in a few hours after that. It went down for good. I still think it's the weather. I can't get in nothing at all to get it out.

Even the Web Host said it's from the Program that was put in. The last program was the weather. It was working till I put that in for him. Now what you think now. They need to redo the MYSQL in there now for that weather Plugin put in.

Go into the database (using phpMyAdmin or whatever's handy) and disable the weather plugin there: In the 'gl_plugins' table, find the entry for the plugin and set the 'pi_enabled' field to 0 (zero).

You need to put this in your .htaccess file for the site:

# Used to allow PHP scripts to access remote pages
php_value allow_url_fopen on

Thanks for great help on WX plugin

Just wanted to fire off a short note of thanks for the information about the weather plugin.

I was having the same trouble with php not being able to access outside pages. I put the line into my .htaccess file and it worked perfectly!

Thanks to all of you who work so hard on these things and for sharing your knowledge.

All the best,
Parthian.

After reading this thread I thought I should add my experience. It worked the first time... No problems whatsoever.

I installed this plugin on a new site I'm working on. I'm developing it using 1.3.10rc2 in hopes that a stable version is released before or soon after I go live.

I wanted to add another city that was not in the database. I kinda hacked my way through that process but this is above and beyond the scope of this plugin in its current stage of development. But I should note that it only took about 10mins to install (includes reading the readme) and another 15mins to get my unlisted city into the database.

I'm glad I didn't read this thread before I gave this plugin a try, I may have looked elsewhere first.

Sure there is always room for improvement but a great addition as far as I'm concerned. Thank you and kudos to all who contributed to this plugin!!!
