Pollen Count
« on: February 14, 2018, 10:12:39 AM »
Hi..

I've been using the Claritin web service to provide pollen data on my site.  It looks as though URL I was using in no longer valid.

https://www.claritin.com/webservice/allergyforecast.php?zip=12205

Anyone doing the same?

Thanks,
Chris

Hi Chris,

Looks like they have discontinued that. Might want to check pollen.com for that. They have an allergy widget, I believe.

Hi Chris,

I too was using Claritin. A friend of mine was also using Claritin and he switched to "nasacort.com". Try this link in your script and please advise if it works for you. It works for my friend but I keep getting a "504 Gateway Timeout Error. I'm using Godaddy.

Thanks Breezy!  Based on data returned, I'll have to do some recoding of the script and give it a try.

Your welcome. I'm very frustrated not being able to download the data. I guess that it's time to call GoDaddy and check in with them.
Looks like Colonie and Hessville (Fort Plain) have the same "pollen forecast".

Update: No help from GoDaddy ...   ](*,)

Update #2: Some other users noted to delete the "s" in "https" in the URL. That did the trick  \:D/ Now I can forecast my upcoming sniffles ...

I thought this new link was working for me, but it's not. The link is valid, but the script isn't uploading new data. I'm stuck on Monday's (the 12th) forecast.

A friend contacted pollen.com to see if an API was available. Went like this...

"When the claritin.com feed went away earlier this week, I sent pollen.com an email asking if they had an API feed to get their pollen data. I got a response back from them this morning. Yes, they do...and it costs ONLY $2,000 a month. YIKES!!!"

Sheesh...

Haha...  I did the same thing, but I stopped the conversation when they wanted to reach out to me and chat...  that's when I knew the result wasn't going to be good.
