How to display WU Sticker / Widget on my WXForum posts?
« on: August 11, 2019, 11:21:29 PM »
Howdy All,
I am all new to the hobby and driven primarily by curiosity and enthusiasm  :-)
My AcuRite Atlas has been linked to my WeatherUnderground account for the past 5 days. Status is online and feeding data.

I have noticed many of you on WXForum have embedded the WU Sticker / Widget under their signature. It's a cool feature for fast sharing local weather condition, and I would like to join in.
But how is it done?
I have failed to find any guide on how to set this up on the WXforum. I suspect it is simple, but haven't been able to figure this one out by myself :-/
Can someone throw me a friendly bone?

Cheers,
boink!

Under your "Profile - Forum Profile" you can add a custom signature. Here's my signature example, you can change it to your station.

Code: [Select]

Thx for the helping hand Worachj,
I'm afraid I am much thicker than I thought, can't get it to work :-/

Cut and Paste the lines of code off my WU widget tab into my WX Forum signature, but I simply end up with a line of code... No widget shows up.

The code looks like this once pasted and saved into my sig:
<a href="https://www.wunderground.com/dashboard/pws/IHONGK16"><img src="http://banners.wunderground.com/cgi-bin/banner/ban/wxBanner?bannertype=wxstnsticker_both&weatherstationcount=IHONGK16" height="160" width="160" border="0" alt="Weather Underground PWS IHONGK16" /></a>

Not too sexy I must say.

Cheers,
boink!

Also if anyone is still having issues after adding a weather condition banner make sure you have any adblocker for site turned off.
