    ^ Right

    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

You can still get your weather from any source that you want!

    Enjoy!
    Yes! Part of me was wondering that.... But I thought my limitation would be that I need the Tweak set to constant to change from city to city in and around Philly.. I want my 'city/township iwidget' I built to reference the tweak in constant mode... BUT I want UniAW6.4AnimOnly, Independent Elements: temp, weather icon & condition to ONLY reference the WOEID for Philly.. I don't want those 4 widget elements to keep referencing my changing location while in and around Philly. So, though you're right, that I could reference the XML's WOEID - wouldn't it keep changing every little town I'd go through?

    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....

    Hmm.. Yes.. That's exactly what I'm doing... I guess I'm confusing the matter by saying 'myLocation widgets'.. I'm simply setting 'non-WW widgets' to GPS=false -- which doesn't reference myLocation at all.. Okay.. I think I'm straight now.. I am doing EXACTLY what you just described, D..

    '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.

    AH YES!! Very clear now, D. Thanks for taking the time to set me straight.. you, too, Brian!!

    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) =

    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.

    Yep.. Neighborhood worked same for me in MyLocation. Widget Weather has so many more options.

    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.

    Yeah M8, but I think Dacal will be posting a version with SlideShow & TimedWalls soon, I think it's something to do with Dacal using "Layer" for the weatherwalls and for the blurry effect, then in the timedwalls I hide the "Layer" div + maybe z-indexes need adjusting.

    I'm sure all will be ok in Dacal's version.

    As for the freezing raindrops, I don't know.

    Thanks, D. Hey - do you remember what you guys were getting after - when you designed the XML to return those first two fields, 'name' AND 'city'?? What's the difference between those two? They've been identical in all WOEID's I've messed with. Do you know of any scenario where they'd return something different?

    I have not seen a different one on those two yet.
    Quite simply why they are there is apple uses both in their weather.plist that communicates with the app. We just retrieve that info. I honestly don't know why they would include both though.

    Okay.. Makes sense.. Thanks!

    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?

    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

    ^ Yeah
    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!
