    Hi all,

    I've been a little out of touch with theming and MMI in general lately so I truly hope everyone is doing well.

    I was doing a little 'playing' tonight and discovered something that I had to share!

    This pertains to any WidgetWeather theme that ALSO uses an Accuweather call (ie: for UV Index).

    For the past while, I've noticed a bug on my "weather data switch" mod. Not sure if other people have seen this. Occasionally, I will get absolutely no weather data on the screen. All I see is a blank overlay, the date and time. I am out of town right now and this happened today when I reached my destination. Hours later, no change. Couldn't leave it like that for the long weekend so I had to look at it - lol.

    Up until today, I thought it was an issue with my theme specifically. But tonight I started testing with Marmoul's amazing "WidgetWeather UniAW6.4 scroller.theme" as well and the same thing was happening.

    My gut told me that the issue had something to do with Accuweather but for the life of me, I couldn't figure it out - UNTIL TONIGHT!!

    Have a look at this line from the UniAW6.js file of my mod (and the scroll theme mod mentioned above):

    var url = "http://apple.accuweather.com/adcbin/apple/Apple_find_city.asp?location="+escape(obj.extraLoc City)+","+obj.extraLocCountryCode;

    It turns out that Accuweather is making the call using obj.extraLocCity.

    Where I am right now, obj.extraLocCity is "Greater Sudbury". obj.city is just "Sudbury". Accuweather has no problem with "Sudbury" but has no idea what "Greater Sudbury" is.

    Bottom line, I changed "obj.extraLocCity" to "obj.city" and now it works great!

    This has been bugging me for a while and I'm hoping the issue is now solved. Sorry for the lengthy post. Just had to share this. I'm curious to know if anyone else has seen the same thing with any mods?

    ----------------------

    On a completely separate note, anyone else notice that Accuweather and WidgetWeather are reporting different moon phases this evening? Accuweather reporting an "8". WidgetWeather reporting a "7".

    Hi all.....unfortunately for me, 3 of my myLocation based widgets running Uniaw6.4 and one based on Topaz LS have stopped updating location about 2 days ago....only tweak installed was WidgetWeather, I'm not certain how else this could've happened.....one WW widget running fine but myLocation ones are broken....this can't be, can it.....am I the only one? All this time, I've been reluctant to run this, but I haven't read about anyone having problems with it.....pretty bummed, but I'll try some things to see if it can be corrected. Uninstalling didn't help.

    If your mylocation is no longer updating, you can try the reset all settings option. This will reset all preferences. It has worked for me in the past.

    For me too, Ferlop, back in spring. Back then a lot of us were having problems with MyLoc. The only thing that clears the problem, like Krima said, is the "pain in the azz" Reset All Settings".. Your jail break stays, no prob.. But all your theme and tweak settings and nearly every button in your phone gets reset to stock. Took me about an hour to get my phone back to normal - but the problem with MyLoc was solved.
    Here to help if I can. If I can't I know someone who can!

    Moon phase is reported as a number by the weather feeds. The widgets then interpret that to show correct moon phase text/moon image.

    Ah.. Thanks.. I haven't gotten into 'moon phase' codes yet.


    Hey Marty.. You still doin' some of your 'milk route' run out in the 'sticks' of Canada? I'd like you to try my new Ultimate Location City iWidget set to its Weather Underground mode for main city name.. Still draw extraLocCity and County from Yahoo via WW.. That place you traveled a couple of months ago - that had no city in WW... based on the lat/long coordinates in that weatherwidget.xml you sent me WeatherUnderground detected as a place called Port Severn in Tay Township. So I'd like you to give 'er a test run on your next trip. For that trip I'll leave MY WeatherUndergound API key in the widget.

    Others watching I'm about to release my Ultimate City iWidget for WW with Yahoo/WeatherUnderground or Google as the city engine. You'll need to get your own free API Ticket from WeatherUnderground if you want that funtion to work - and the place to enter your API Key is in the iWidget options.

    Comin out shortly..

    I'll PM you Marty.

    Don't be a stranger, bro!

    I know more creativity will jump off again here - when the iOS7 jailbreak is released.. From October to January - this place gets to be a ghost town while so many are stock on their new phones..

    Thanks Krima, NewD, Gunny.....will test that method and see later this week while I'm changing suburbs.....Does this mean that myLocation widgets and WW widgets can run well side by side?....I'm really hesitant when it comes to trying new tweaks, too many unknowns! And myLocation widgets have been awesome for me personally.

    I have been using WW and mylocation for months without any conflict.

    Default NEW realease: "NEWD ULTIMATE LOCATION iWidget(WW)"-3 locations serivces to choose from
    Quote Originally Posted by ferlop15 View Post

    Well seek and you shall find, Ferlop!!.

    Actually several have been asking for this and here is the unveiling of my NEWEST location tracking iWidget.. To borrow a little 'swagger' from our favorite HOMIE - CHEVYMUSCLECAR I've renamed it the NEWD ULTIMATE LOCATION iWIDGET(WW).. because it really sucks every possible inference of location out of the widgetweatherxml PLUS - NEW FEATURE - three different weather services to pull from for Main City..

    1) YAHOO (native to WidgetWeather)
    2) GOOGLE (free - no API needed)
    3) WEATHER UNDERGROUND (most accurate for main city - but needs a free API you can get from their site)

    My Location iWidget has options for fonts and colors and justification alignment and launches stock with 3 lines of data: Main City, Alternate City (in US this is your Township in the burbs, The words "the Borough" or "in Town" if you're in the center of a large town, or this reports the section of a large city.. Like QUEENS in New York or MANAYUNK in Philly - all auto inferred with my code). And on Line 3 you get the County. All switchable on and off depending what you want.

    If you get an API key for Weather Underground - you'll see where to place it in the Main.js file so you don't have to type it in everytime you use the Options for the iWidget. Thought that was better and easier.

    So enjoy this.. I'll get some more pics up later today..

    Newd Ultimate LocationiWid(WW)

    Thanks always to Drifter for the original idea of Independent Elements iWidgets
    Then to Dacal who helps us ALL when we get stuck in our coding..
    And to Durben and King for this great engine called Widget Weather and all their help and support.

    Enjoy!

    Nice Grant!

    Oh - I 'fully' admit it's a 'compulsion'.. but mostly because it teaches me more about coding and the power of the IF/THEN/ELSE statement in terms of inferring from a document (.xml) all that can be inferred. I was working with three different ones by the different weather services and then thought - hey I could combine them all into one!!.. But getting all that worked out has taken a couple months with my being a little newer to javascript AND my 'perfectionism'..

    So I had just packaged it for release -not minutes before you asked about it.. Thanks for being my 'straight man' for the big release.. LOL!!!

    I know 'exactly' what it will do for US and CANADIAN folks - but it will be interesting to hear from people in Europe and Asia to see how it works for them..
