I spent my site in https … and Astero Weather no longer works: the system locates nothing at all now (but it’s ok …
HTTPS is only supported by Forcast.io. Please make sure you are using Forecast.io as your weather provider and that you have entered a valid API for Forecast.io in the settings.
thank you very much
I had not entered Forecast.io API Key… it’s ok now
we bought plugin and everything worked like a charm, BUT when we have changed the wenserver on https nothing works.
In the plugin settings we have changed Open weather map with Forecast.io (Supports Https) but nothing change.
May You help us to solve this issue?
Thank You very much for Your support
Please make sure you have a valid Forecast.io API saved under Settings > Astero.
YOU ARE SIMPLY G R E A T !!!! THX
Hi, love the plugin. However, is there any php code I can use inside my wordpress theme’s template files in order to output weather box? I really need this. Can’t find anything about this in documentation. Please help.
Yes there definitely is. After creating a weather post, click on Astero Weather > Astero Weather and you’ll see a column “Shortcode” in the list of weathers. You can add the weather box using the shortcode. E.g.
<?php echo do_shortcode("[astero id='123']"); ?>
I have purchased your plugin for use on a digital sign. I seem to be having trouble with the background colors and\or images not updating. I have tried a competitors product that has the switch of /?clear_awsome_widget
If I add this statement to the end of the url it works. This forces my digital sign to update and it works. But I like your plugin better and would like to use that instead. Do you have any thing that I can do to force a reload? I am using a BrightSign Player.
Do you have a live site I could look at? Thanks.
This is the weather I am seeing: http://i.imgur.com/wIZ1kOZ.png
What styles and color were you expecting to see?
The plugin saves the custom styles and colors in a separate stylesheet, so you may have to clear cache on your server or browser to see an update after any changes.
The problem is that when I use the weather background images, they will not update when the weather changes to another state. Such as from raining to clear skies. They will on a computer browser but not on my digital sign. I realize that I am trying to use this plugin for something it was not intended to do, but I think there is a cache issue here. Unfortunately I cannot force a refresh such as doing a CTRL + F5 on the digital sign. I need a way to have this happen automatically. As I stated earlier I found another plugin that allows me to enter a switch on the end of the url that forces a full refresh and then the pictures on that plugin will work. So I think the issue is similar with the astero plugin. I just wanted to know if I could modify something for it to work.
Hm, that shouldn’t happen at all. The weather results are cached for 1 hour, but if the weather conditions changes, the background image should update too because they are based on css and are not affected by caching.
Are you using custom images or the default images?
Can you enable the search function on your weather display so I can search other locations and see if the image updates?
Another note though, Forecast.io returns “day” and “night” for both clear and partly cloudy conditions.
This plugin displays the same night image for both “partly-cloudy-night” and “clear-night” condition, whereas it displays different images for “clear-day” and “partly-cloudy-day.”
If images are not updated for other weather conditions, e.g. clear to rain etc. Please let me know.
I just enabled the search feature and yes I am using the default images. I tried to search for another location and it did not show the current temperature. Maybe I am doing something wrong.
The search function requires a free Google map API for Forecast.io.
You can find instructions on the Settings > Astero page.
Having the search function will allow me to quickly see if the images are not updating. Thanks.
The api is not configured properly. Here is the error message:
It’s enabled as far as I can tell. Shows some blank analyticals on the page.
After waiting for a few hours I still see the same error in the browser console. This error is shown by Google, so it is probably detecting some problems with your credential.
For “Key restriction” setting for the API you may want to set it to “none” instead of HTTP referrers or other settings for temporary testing, because HTTP referrers can be a bit troublesome.
Ok changed key restrictions to none. In my dashboard it is showing traffic,errors, median latency and so forth. Just no data in it. I don’t see anything that looks wrong.
Using the search function now, the images seem to be updating correctly.
Can you post some screenshot examples of an incorrect weather condition and background image? Thanks.
I purchased your weather plug in to use on our new site after reading that it supports https. However, if you visit our site at the link below, you will see that it is not working (although it did work on our development domain, which was http). I have double-checked every setting, including that we are using forecast.io.
Please help – thanks!
Please ensure you have entered a valid Forecast.io API under Settings > Astero.
Hi, thank you, I did install your great plugin and it works perfectly , one more thing: It’s a kind of big can I reduce it ?
I’m glad it’s working for you.
The weather display will expand to the full width of its container because it’s responsive.
You can place it in a parent container that is less wide or use a set width. E.g.
yeah thx , by changing the fonts size I managed to reduce it’s size .
great app and works just fine !
1) Are the layouts restricted to what is shown on your demo page, or can i customize by picking and choose which elements I want to use and where and how I want to use them, to more seamlessly blend into my site’s design (if that makes sense)?
2) Can additional data points be added (sunrise, sunset, surf, ocean water temp, high-tide, low-tide, visibility, wind direction, moon-phases). My clients are hotels and travel tourism, and these are all very important.
1. The layouts are restricted as shown. If you are familiar with CSS you can probably manipulate the information a bit with css styles.
2. Unfortunately you will have to customize the plugin to add other weather data.
Ok, and thank you for the quick response.
Hello, just bought the plugin. Is it possible to add a source that could be openweathermap thru https://cors-anywhere.herokuapp.com to get the HTTPS working ?
Or use the yahoo API : https://developer.yahoo.com/weather/#php
I can only found a shortcode available once i’ve created a astero Weather.
There is no shortcode like [astero id=’287’] there is no simple shortcode [astero location=’Paris’] ???
To use it on an HTTPS site please switch to Forecast.io. Remember to enter a valid API under Settings > Astero.
I believe Yahoo weather API is not free for commercial use so I cannot include it with the plugin.
To find the shortcode, please select Astero Weather in the main Dashboard menu, then you can find it under the column “Shortcode” if you have created a weather display.
There is currently no simple shortcode like [astero location=’Paris’].
Just wondering if there’s any setting to change the wind speed units from km or mph to kts?
Thanks for your inquiry.
The plugin currently only supports kmh or mph.
We bought this plugin and it’s really awesome!
Only one issue. If You embed video background from Youtube, on mobile You will see NOTHING. and there is no option to force (on mobile) a picture… it’s a sin…
Good morning, it does not work in any mobile tested (android/Iphone). Iphone 6s (latest update), Samsung s6, Sony xperia T, Sony xperia z2 (tablet).
Background video are not supported at the moment but I think it should be nice (for mobile) to have the option to upload an image to workaround the issue.
Thanks for reply
Do you have a live site I could look at? I’ll try your site on more mobile devices.
Please send it to firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d prefer not posting it here.
Hello, I’m having an unusual issue with the plugin. When I click the search button, the modal appears but also a new browser window?? I need to switch this off as I’m using the plugin in an apppresser app, and it keeps opening the phone browser!!
please take a look: https://www.emaritimeexchange.com/weather/
Can you send me an email at email@example.com? I can guess where the problem lies. I can send you a patched plugin.
Done! Great thank you!
I purchased the plugin but after installation it is not working fine. When you load the page it does not shows anything black screen with N/A but when you search the location it shows the data properly. Now the demo link http://demo.archtheme.com/astero/image/ properly shows the data in browser but in same browser if i open my site it is failing to load the data on load. Check page http://marccaudel.com/wrongful-conviction/. When i inspect the page load i am seeing the error as below, is it related? But still i wonder how the demo link http://demo.archtheme.com/astero/ works
astero.min.js?ver=4.7.5:8 [Deprecation] getCurrentPosition() and watchPosition() no longer work on insecure origins. To use this feature, you should consider switching your application to a secure origin, such as HTTPS. See https://goo.gl/rStTGz for more details.
That’s because Geolocation is disabled in Chrome and possibly some other browsers that are non HTTPS for security reasons.
To fix this you have two options:
1. Switch your site to HTTPS or
2. Choose IP Detection Only for your Location option in the weather settings. The location will be less accurate than Geolocation, but you will not receive any errors.
Hope this helps.
IP Detection Only is not working either, do we need some settings to be done for IP detection?
From your website admin-ajax.php is responding with a 500 server error. Can you try to reinstall the plugin again?
If possible please delete the current plugin and reinstall by uploading the plugin through FTP. It’s possible that some files are currently missing. If this doesn’t work, I may require a Dashboard login to debug the problem.
The issue is fixed now, did investigated the ajax requests and as mentioned by you i too found that admin-ajax.php is throwing 500 server error and further checking the server logs for the error i saw error “[15-Jun-2017 21:43:16] PHP Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_STRING, expecting T_CONSTANT_ENCAPSED_STRING or ‘(’ in /home2/criminh5/public_html/marccaudel/wp-content/plugins/astero/vendors/geoip.php on line 3 [“
The error is related to non support of namespace by php 5.2 which was on the server, upgrading the sever’s php to 5.6 fixed the issue (for namespace minimum it has to be php 5.3)
Thanks a lot.
I’m glad it’s fixed!
Let me know if you have anymore problems.
Hi. Trying to install but times out with a message “unpacking the package…”
I’ve tried three times and every time just sits at that screen for over 30mins.
It’s possible the plugin file size is too large for your PHP or Wordpress settings. (The large file size is due to the built in Geolocation database for better IP location support).
Please try to upload the plugin through FTP and then activate from your Dashboard Plugin page.
