This adds a small searchbox from http://mobile.wunderground.com/ to look up the weather by city, state, zipcode or country. Paste the code from the attached file where you want the box to appear.

The location I used is in the forumhome template directly above $footer.

Great job!!! This is a really simple mod but truly a great addition to my site. I have a Harley Davidson forum and to be able to give my members the option to check their weather & plan their ride is "PRICELESS"!!! Thank You very much beano33! ;)

Its a shame its only for the us. Also i would like to have a global weather add on which is embedded into the style of vbulletin. There used to be a add on for vb 3.0.0 i think.

If you use Firefox then download the plugin for the browser ;)
I use it, its brill and im in the UK... Download them here (https://addons.mozilla.org/extensions.php?app=%7bec8030f7-c20a-464f-9b0e-13a3a9e97384%7d)

There is another option thats world wide....
Go here (http://www.theweathernetwork.com/inter/weathercentre/weatherbutton/wxButton.php) and follow th instructions
choose the nearest big city to yourselves....once done you will get a iframe code to put anywhere on your site....
If you choose the dropdown type you will be able to add multiple cities.....

sorry beano, just helping out peeps that aint in the US ;) if you not like let me know in a PM me and i will edit it alll away :)

Great hack by the way...

It isn't only for the US. You can type in the city and country for weather anywhere in the world (eg Sydney Australia).

Fantastic.

Might look at making this a ticker for under the navbar with a user locality option in their CP.

Great, simple, clean and easy to integrate.
