Weather Underground
« on: April 15, 2019, 08:14:34 PM »
Follow up to my previous cry for help.  I'm not even capable of logging in to WU.  Issues there too.  I'm new to this forum so not exactly sure how to make it work for me so looking for suggestions.

I'll give you the short answer.  WU has migrated to a new site and format.  The migration has not gone smoothly and there are numerous problems that include losing previous account information.  You may find it easier to create a new account and proceed from there.  As with everything, YMMV.

If you want all the details have a look in the Weather Underground thread.

I tried it with one of my PWS.  After an hour nothing yet, no luck.  Thanks for the suggestion.

You may find it easier to ...

.... abandon WU as many of us have.

They do not act in the best interests of the public.
Banners, tags, widgets, etc. are why I have Signatures turned off.

From what I've seen other platforms require running a PC or Raspberry Pi, or similar device, to capture the data and upload it to other platforms.  That's not something I want to do so I just stuck it out until the new configuration started working again.  Now, I'm waiting for them to get webcams going again.  In the mean time they have gotten things back but it still isn't where it was with the old site in terms of functionality and granularity of data.

Thanks it's frustrating because neither of my PWS's work at all now on WU.

 #-o Mine is working fine with the pwsWD template but I would really like to find one that will work with my Acurite Atlas and has a menu as to where you can add links and so on more configurations and a place where I can upload my weather info besides WU? I mean its working fine but I want a template that has animated wind and bar pressure and so on I like those types of templates I have see lots have those! And yes one that will auto-refresh pws as it send info to WU or whatever its sharing back to the Weather Display on my hosting site! Here is mine. https://eyeonthesky.online

I would need to be walked through the installation of this as I'm not very tech savvy.

 :thumbsup: I happen to find one of our members who walked me thru the installation step by step. Do you have a hosting service for the file upload? If not I can hook you up with a very good one at a great price with my discount! There are lots of members in here who can help you much better than I. I am just getting the hang of this. One of our members helped me get my launched! Very good people in here just ask if you have issues. I talked on the phone too him and he walked me right thru the setup and off to the races!  :thumbsup: :thumbsup:
