Easy enough to set GPS widgets to false and change the variable for woeid to use the one from Widget Weather in the xml. Could also use the lat/long in the xml (extraLocName) in place of the MyLocation one.
Just need to rewrite that also in a location.js
08-24-2013, 12:13 PM #802
I think you're suggesting that I just flip to FIXED mode while in and around Philly. Right? Well, maybe one day this 'fascination' will wear off.. But I like seeing my ACTUAL location changing as I'm moving around Philly -- I just want all the weather data to stay the same AS IF I'd set it to FIXED...
To do what i want to do - I think I need two different localization tweaks... I think....
'Am I' understanding what you just said? If I have the 'non-WW widgets' set to GPS=false - they will work perfectly WITHOUT myLocation even installed. So I can just basically uninstall myLocation all together.. Right?

Something like that but not really
I just meant existing GPS/woeid widgets could get the lat/long or the woeid from the xml for Widget Weather
The js just needs to be written accordingly.
To me this is pointless as I use yahoo anyway. But maybe someone using accuweather like from uniaw could potentially use this to get the location and then the widget would still query accuweather based on that location.
For your second part, MyLocation tweak is only really needed to be installed if you are always leaving Sig.Change on to change location on the fly.
If you don't do that you don't need that tweak at all. You can keep the myLocation.txt file and still use GPS as it reads that file (just wont auto change location) or using a woeid it's not needed at all.

And of COURSE - you've peaked my interest with the idea of how I could use the new tweak in concert with accuweather..
D, I'm curious for you guys in Canada... about what yields what from the xml's various location..
In America I've pretty much confirmed all these..
City & City 2 ('name' and 'city' in the xml) = your main US city/town
City 3 ('extraLocCity' in the xml) = US Township
Neighborhood (extraLocNeighborhood in the xml) = 80% of the time returns 'null' unless in a big city like Ny, NY where you then get 'borough' like QUEENS/BRONX or in Philly the 'section' of the City like MANAYUNK/EAST FALLS,etc)
County ('extraLocCounty' in the xml) = US County
State ('extraLocState' in the xml) = US State
I've checked about50-60 WOEID's to confirm this and they come up the same..
Can you give me what you get in British Colombia for an area near you?
In Canada, generally:
City ('name' in the xml) =
City 2 ('city' in the xml) =
City 3 ('extraLocCity' in the xml) =
Neighborhood (extraLocNeighborhood in the xml) =
County ('extraLocCounty' in the xml) =
State ('extraLocState' in the xml) =

My "name" "city" and "extraLocCity" are almost always the same.
There's a few areas here where it will change (name only)
State we don't have in Canada. It's a province. So state returns the province here.

But I was in Philly today on my bike trail I often ride. Right inside limits of Philadelphia proper. An area called "Manayunk". All city name options in the XML said Philadelphia - but extraLocNeighborhood said: Manayunk.
Neighborhood in WW in the US is for sections/ boroughs of large cities only.Here to help if I can. If I can't I know someone who can!

Hi @ all,
@ Ian, thx for your TimedWalls mod of Dacals Yahoo theme I noticed that there is no Blur effect when u touch to forecast, and the rain drops freezed for me.
Thanks for your help

I'm sure all will be ok in Dacal's version.
As for the freezing raindrops, I don't know.

Hey is it correct what I'm noticing - that when you go into Fixed mode - and enter a WOEID - all the information at the top of the XML gets updated - but all the stuff from extraLoc -- isn't always accurate? Like when I put in your WOEID -- my extraLocNeighborhood still said my hometown here.. And not Queensboro where you are. I'm guessing WOEID can only pull so much of the data.. Not quite as exacting as GPS coordinates pulled from Constant mode?Here to help if I can. If I can't I know someone who can!

It will change but not right away sometimes.
As you are strictly using woeid I believe it waits until the next update interval where it will change that info.
It's not a big deal as entering a woeid will give you the city you selected and its weather.
But it will change.
See below. This is after entering woeid for New York
<updatetimestring>2013-08-24 08:48:50 PM</updatetimestring>
<extraLocCounty>New York County</extraLocCounty>

I noticed if I waited to the next interval update - more info came in more accurately. Learning more of the nuances of this tweak daily!Here to help if I can. If I can't I know someone who can!

Wallpaper moves with gyroscope this time. So instead of tilting device back, forth, left or right, the wallpaper moves as you move the device around yourself. Still a little buggy (especially when twisting too far and thus resching wallpaper end) but works pretty well.
