Dear Author,

I have purchased your pluing Astero, but when I set up the you tube video in the pluing an error appears on my website saying:

Warning: Use of undefined constant ‘on’ – assumed ‘‘on’’ (this will throw an Error in a future version of PHP) in /home/perth12/domains/podroze.org.pl/public_html/wp-content/plugins/astero/public/astero-public.php on line 265

Can you help me to resolve this issue.

Best regards

Hi,

I’ve sent you an email with a fixed plugin. Let me know if you still have problems.

Thank you Arch for your email, It is working fine now.

Hello I am trying to install the plugin on Wordpress and it doesnt let me. It says link expired. I have had a look at the php upload size and it is way over the size of the zip folder…

I don´t know what to do…please help me

Hi,

You could unzip the file astero.zip, login to FTP for your website and manually upload the folder astero to /wp-content/plugins/

Instructions from WordPress: https://wordpress.org/support/article/managing-plugins/#manual-plugin-installation

Or you can add the following lines to your functions.php

@ini_set( 'upload_max_size' , '64M' );
@ini_set( 'post_max_size', '64M');
@ini_set( 'max_execution_time', '300' );

Hope this helps.

Regards

I have tried this and it does not work… I am not able to install it. I have increased the ftp in cpanel, I have tried everything and am not able to install this plugin!

Hi! I need help with geolocalization. I need to limit the geolocalization to the city, not by neighborhood. Is that possible? For example, in Córdoba Argentina is showing weather for ¨Alta Cordoba¨ that is neighborhood of Córdoba City. My purchase code is 738896d8-b661-4690-891c-0ecf365f6e1d

Hi,

Are you using HTML5 Geolocation or IP Detection Only?

It seems you want a broader location, in that case IP Detection Only usually uses a broader location.

However please note that location detection has its limitations after all, and IP Detection may also be less accurate. The only way to ensure the weather uses a certain city is by entering a specific latitude / longitude.

Hope this helps.

Dear Astero developer, I have been tryng everything to install your plugin but I am not able to install it. I would like to receive a refund of this plugin as I cannot use it …

Hi,

Please contact Codecanyon support on how to apply for a refund.

I asked an OWM API tech last year about City and State support (U.S.) in the API and was told at that time that OWM only supported Cities and Countries, but not City and State. Do you know if this has since changed, or if you will be able to accurately implement the OWM API into the plugin? I moved to Astero from another plugin because of the issues with the OWM API at the time. Now that OWM is being considered as the replacement for the DarkSky API in Astero, I again have concerns about the accuracy of location data once this is implemented.

In the use case that I presented to OWM’s developer, I have employees that will look for weather in Odessa, Texas. Because OWM does/did not offer City and State lookup, when a user enters “Odessa”, it returns weather for “Odesa, Odessa Ublast, Ukraine”. OWM does/did not recognize “Odessa, TX” as a location and does not return results. It is standard in the U.S. to search for “City, State”, which the DarkSky API does correctly. I’m still unusure from your answer if Astero will be able to correctly locate “Odessa, TX” using the OWM API.

Actually, I just tested your demo linked above, and indeed, it does not return any result for “Odessa, TX”, which will render this plugin unusable without a better API or more accurate location search by the OWM API developers.

Hi,

Please send an email to support@archtheme.com regarding this problem.

Thanks!

Hi there, wondering if there is a way to apply further styling to the weather plugin. It’s not looking so good here…needs to be spaced properly, etc.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Hi,

This is a screenshot of what I see: https://i.imgur.com/2vIojic.png

What styles do you want to apply? Larger font, less space etc. I can probably help you with the changes if you can list them more specifically.

Hello,

I bought your plugin for a Spanish site and I realize that the translation is quite poor. Can I help you to change some things or is there a way on my side to change that? I installed Loco translate which allowed me to correct some errors but some are missing and the original text is not accessible. How can I do it?

Best regards

Hi,

The recommended way to translate local text strings for the plugin is using Poedit (https://poedit.net/) to translate the .po file located in /wp-content/plugins/astero/languages

You can refer to the “Translation” section in the documentation more information.

Let me know if you still have any problems.

Hello again,

I don’t think you’ve really read my request and my explanations. So I’ll start again before noting your plugin that I paid 29 US$ with in its description “Support 45 languages…”.

I know how to translate with Poedit, BUT the texts that need to be corrected are not in the .po files, their source is elsewhere. That’s why I’m writing to you, not so that you can answer things I already know and that I explained to you in my first email.

So, when on your plugin there is a translation of Partly Cloudy, which becomes, translated into Spanish literally “Broken Cloud”, I think there should be a possibility to improve that right? And thus give more value to your work, unless the 29 US$ and “Support 45 languages…” is to take people for fools.

My question again is, how? If it’s not possible then it’s not worth $29, it’ll be worth my rating and my comment.

Hi,

The example you gave is related to the weather information. The weather condition translations are provided by Openweathermap. They are not locally translatable because those texts are provided by Openweathermap.

You can reach out to Openweathermap for better translation suggestions: https://openweathermap.force.com/s/contactsupport

HI,

Please send an email to me at support@archtheme.com

Running into a couple of issues on this plugin I hoped you might be able to illuminate for me; 1) the youtube channel id and giant play button is visible on some devices when using a YouTube video as a bg? Any way to prevent this? 2) It would appear that despite location services being turned ‘on’, that some devices/areas are still unable to see the weather relevant to their location, and instead seem to get weather from other areas nowhere near them. Please advise. thanks very much.

Hi,

The location problem is a hard one to solve because it is limited by the technology that is available, and doesn’t have to do with the coding involved in the plugin.

If the user blocks the Location prompt on the browser, then the plugin reverts to IP Detection as a back up.

You can send me an email at support@archtheme.com and I’ll send you a plugin with the most updated IP detection database, it should have more accurate addresses. Sorry if it doesn’t help.

Regards

Acknowledged. I’ll send you an email re. , and Thanks again!

I’ve replied to your email. Please check!

Hello! How can I display the name of the city and not the neighborhood specifically? For example: in the US i want it to display Hialeah instead of Palm Springs North.

This will work masking the “false” locations making the weather more broad. Thanks!

Hi,

Are you using Html5 Geolocation , IP Detection Only or Default Location?
