Thanks for help

Hello,

What exactly do you mean by background ? Your slider shows the weather behind the temperature for me.

The city liege does not display Weather, i choose another city near of the “liège”

It could be that World Weather Online doesn’t recognize your location. Could you try entering it with a different format ? You can use the search engine on their site: http://www.worldweatheronline.com/

In our experience it shouldn’t be a problem, they are supporting almost every place, but you may have to try writing location names differently, so WWO can recognize it.

It says an update is coming last month? (No misspelling) Is there an update coming? Just want to know if it abandoned or not before i commit to buy and implement it.

Hi I have a problem “Your purchase code doesn’t appear to be valid.” Afternoon shows at night. And at night shows the day. ??? :(

Hello,

Please try to validate your Item Purchase Code later since there might be a temporary issue with our services. Also, please show us your site with the slider so we can check what’s wrong.

does not work for me, I’m using the latest version of the plugin

Hello,

Do you also have LayerSlider installed on your site? We’ve discovered another issue and are preparing to release a quick fix for LayerSlider as well. If that’s not the case, please enable the wp debug mode in your wp-config.php file and paste here the PHP error message.

Hi, maybe I did not explained well: plugin has never been installed. Already loaded with FTP, but when I activate the plugin, generates this error with LayerSlider (which I can not turn off) on Enfold theme. Therefore it has never been activated Thanks

Fatal error: Cannot redeclare class KM_PluginUpdates in /web/htdocs/xxx/home/wp-content/themes/enfold/config-layerslider/LayerSlider/classes/class.km.autoupdate.plugins.php on line 26

thanks

There was a small issue that needed us to release updates to both WeatherSlider and LayerSlider. You will need to request the new update to LayerSlider from the author of your theme in order to solve this issue.

Hi! Pre-purchase question here, i would need the widget to have and display as a default the weather at the location of my hotel, then to have the weather displayed at the visitor’s location ,side by side. is this possible with this widget? also can this thing be inserted with shortcodes? i’m using a modular theme so that would make it easier to implement. thanks!

kreatura

Hello,

Yes, the widget can be inserted with a shortcode. You can use multiple widgets on the same page, but the free weather API provided by World Weather Online might not allow concurrent requests. Caching can help on this issue, but using the premium weather API is recommended in these cases.

Okay,thanks. So say i want to use the free API at first then maybe upgrade later, i can have the widget display the fixed location of my hotel, and not pick up on the visitor’s location?

kreatura

You can use both fixed locations and geolocation. Your visitors can even search for custom locations with the search bar at the top if you enable that feature.

2.6.2 don´t active. Result in blank wp-admin

kreatura

Sorry for your inconveniences, currently the only solution is that if you update both plugins to the latest version. Optionally you can remove the bundled version of LayerSlider from your theme so the WeatherSlider will work as intended.

Default-user
ayron Purchased

Ok. I bought the theme, bought the plugin and I can not use. If you are the developer of the two plugins and can not solve so I’ll use another solution. Anyway appreciate their effort. Thank´s

kreatura

The problem is already solved you just need to update both plugins to the latest version. It is unfortunate that you got one of them with a theme which does not include the latest release yet.

Hi, does this use google maps to display radar and satellite weather layers?

kreatura

Hello,

WeatherSlider uses World Weather Online for data and there is no option to display radars or satellites in the current version.

Thank you for the reply. It would be great to see something like a Google Maps integration along with optional weather layers to place onto the maps and then have the ability to drill down to the county or town/city level….

kreatura

Thank you for the feedback, but we cannot add these features, sorry.

Love this weather plugin, especially since the update. One big issue I’ve run into:

“Eliminate render-blocking JavaScript and CSS in above-the-fold content”

If you test a site through Google Page Speed Insights (https://developers.google.com/speed/pagespeed/insights/?url=anightinburlington.com&tab=desktop) you’ll find that this slider causes a HUGE slowdown on page load speeds, even on the pages it doesn’t exist on. Due to the way it’s loaded, no matter what the page on the website, all of the jquery for the plugin is loaded. If I remove this plugin, my score goes from a 72~ to an 87~ (on desktop), and an equally significant change on mobile.

That being said, is there a way the plugin can be programmed to not have that jquery loaded on pages it’s not even used? If not, is there at least a way it can be loaded through the footer, so that it’s not penalizing us for above the fold loading?

KreaturaSupport

Hello,

You can find both of these options in the ‘Troubleshooting & Advanced Settings’ section. This menu is closed by default so you have to open it. You can enable the ‘Conditional script loading’ and ‘Include scripts in the footer’ settings there.

Awesome to see these that you support these settings, I didn’t see them!

I tried turning those on, while they don’t load anymore (the warning was gone on page insights), the plugin didn’t function for me either. I narrowed it down, and “include scripts in the footer” DOES work, while “conditional script loading” does not. Loading via the footer unfortunately doesn’t seem to add any performance gain, despite the fact it seems to work.

As far as the site I’m using goes, I’m using the Genesis framework, and am creating my own custom theme from the most recent Sample Theme build, which should be quite up to date with Wordpress best practices. Site – anightinburlington.com/weather

Can you offer any information on how I could get these features of your plugin to work? Anything from direct advice, to reading material would be appreciated. I’ll do whatever work it takes to get this working, I just don’t know where to start. Also, thanks for the super fast response, much appreciated!

UPDATE

I turned on the Google CDN for jquery (along with the other settings), and it works! This tells me that I need to update the jquer version I’m currently using. Despite being a programmer, I wasn’t aware jquery was using any “versions”, or how to go about that, but I’m Googling it now to figure it out.

kreatura

Did you find the solution?
