Hi, We’re interested in purchasing this plugin for our news site: https://smcorridornews.com/ . But we want to make sure it will work with our site. Are there any server requirements I should know about?
There are no special requirements for this plugin, it should run on any newer WordPress installation. Please read the important message on the plugin’s page before purchasing.

I am looking for a weather widget for an event based site, so I would like to be able to show the expected weather on Saturdays only, is that possible with your plugin?
Unfortunately there is no such feature available in the WeatherSlider at the moment, the forecast cannot show specific days only.
We’re sorry to hear that you’re having difficulties with the WeatherSlider. We can assure you that the plugin is working properly, there has to be something else causing the issue. Please explain the problem in more details and provide examples if needed so we can help you identify and solve the issue.
Hi. Looks like a great plugin you have there. I got one pre-buy question… Does your plugins has such function as: Custom information box, that appears after searching some city. And admin could add custom information for each city.
Unfortunately there is no option in the plugin to achieve this at the moment.
Warning to potential buyers about WeatherSlider which stopped working suddenly with no help from support.
WeatherSlider has been working properly for years on my website and stopped working about a month ago without warning. It says: “WeatherSlider Error: API Key does not have access to the resource”.
I tried making all Wordpress plugins inactive, deleting and re-entering my location. I created a new slider and it didn’t help. I re-entered my API key and checked the API version. When I enter my purchase code on the plugin settings, it says “Your purchase code doesn’t appear to be valid.”
I’m on the latest version WeatherSlider 2.6.7 and the website is http://weejack.com/ which is on the latest version of Wordpress.
I reached out to support a month ago both to the author here on CodeCanyon and directly to WorldWeatherOnline. Neither replied.
Disappointed buyer and long-time CodeCanyon user with dozens of happy purchases except WeatherSlider.
We have checked and we did not find any message related this request and your Envato account. There is no comment from you on the item’s page and there was no ticket created with this query in our new support center either (https://kreatura.ticksy.com/).
The problem is most likely related to the API version you are using and it might be solved by setting the premium option in the pugin settings correctly. The error message itself is generated by WWO, we’d recommend logging into their online interface and checking the status of your API. WWO is an external provider so we do not have control over it or insight on issues related to WWO, for example premium subscription expiring.
For the purchase code you will need to enter the license that you have received in email when purchasing WeatherSlider on CodeCanyon. Please make sure that you have entered it correctly without any extra characters.
If you need further assistance we are available and ready to help you on the above mentioned ways and url.
Thank you for your understanding. If this solution would change your mind about the plugin, please consider changing your rating – that would mean a lot to us.
Hi. Thank you for the quick reply. I just logged into WWO’s interface and sent them another message, exactly 30 days after the initial one. On my dashboard, it says “Free API V1 (Obsolete. No longer supported). Older version of free Local, Ski, Marine, Time Zone and Location Search API. Created on 8-Mar-2016.” Don’t understand why it says it was created on that date since I created it on April 23, 2013 the same day I purchased the plugin. I haven’t logged into WWO since the initial purchase and everything worked well until about a month ago.
The API version on the plugin is set to “API v1 (Premium)”. It says “Free API keys registered before November 2014 requires setting the v1 API version”.
I re-entered the purchase code copied from the text file and it worked. Copying from the PDF file does not work. I should’ve entered it manually, sorry.
If we can solve this issue and get the plugin working again the way it has for the past 3 years, I will gladly change the rating to 5 star.
Plugin is now working again. I’ve changed my rating to a 5-star. Thank you for your help.
Thank you for the feedback, glad you could solve the problem. If you need further assistance let us know.
can not activate it! please fix it
Please specify the issue you are experiencing. Are you not able to activate the plugin or are you facing problems with the API key ? We will need more details than this to be able to help.
can you confirm it is working with latest wp-version 4.7.3.x and there is still a free api key available?
Yes, the plugin is working with recent WordPress versions.
Unfortunately WWO is no longer issuing free API keys, thus new customers can only use this plugin with a premium subscription. However current users with already registered API keys will not be affected, the plugin will continue to work as before.
Hi there, is https://openweathermap.org/ integrated? Any updates coming? Thanks!
WeatherSlider uses WWO’s database for now, openweathermap is not integrated to the plugin at the moment. Unfortunately I cannot provide you with an ETA for the next update.
Good day. Nice looking plugin, but I cannot afford to use it on a subscription based terms. Are there any news on whether it will become free again in the future? By the word “free” I mean that you only buy it once here and then don’t have to pay monthly fee after your trial API expires
Integrating a different weather data provider other than WWO to the plugin is still on our to-do list, but unfortunately at the moment we cannot provide you with any news on this matter.
Does your plugin work on WordPress 4.7.4
Yes, the plugin should be working without any issue on WordPress 4.7.4. We are not aware of any compatibility problem either.
Any update on integrating a different weather data provider? WWO discontinued the free API today (June 2). Thanks!
Unfortunately I cannot provide you with exact news on this matter yet. We are considering our options and looking at weather data providers for possible future changes.
since a couple of days the plugin widget (2.5.0) on or page (Wordpress 3.8.2 – we can’t update because of the complexity of the page) is not longer working. Always displays: Location not found: Montevideo, Uruguay. We’ve already tried to change the API to Premium – the same. Nothing. What can we do? Thanks!
Usually these issues are related to the WorldWeatherOnline API, your own API key and the API settings in the plugin. Please verify that your API key is valid and working in your WWO profile, you have entered it correctly to the plugin, and the API settings are correct in the admin interface.
No, in our case we didn’t change nothing. The plugin worked since years without any problem. And if I said, we tried it already with a different API. Also not working.
Something must be different, otherwise the plugin would be working the same. If you did not change anything in the back-end, than it is most likely related to the WWO API key. Could you please show us your site so we can check on it ?
As I already said: We changed nothing! And as we’ve seen, WWO deleted our free-API-Key after we generated a Premium-API to test the function of the plugin, so we would have to pay at least 108 USD/year to use your plugin further on, we decided to use another one. This price is a cheek! Thanks!
You are right, this is new for us as well. WWO promised to keep the already existing free API keys but suddenly a couple of days ago they have deleted them without any warning. We are considering the best way to approach this change currently.
Hopefully you will find a solution for the deleted free API keys. Please keep us informed. Thanks in advance!
Kind regards, Ramon
We are currently thinking about our options and will let you and the other users know of our decision once its made.
Is there news regarding this problem?
We are still looking through the available weather data providers. Unfortunately so far we did not find any that fits our needs. Will let you know once we got the right one.
I see your note about WWO no longer issuing free API keys. My free key was issued in October of 2014 but no longer works (I get a timeout). Instructions say to use V1 API for keys issued prior to November 2014 (which mine was) but the only V1 API in the pull-down appears to be for premium keys. Should I still be able to use your plug-in? Do I need to revert to an older version of the plug-in? Thanks.
WWO has promised to keep the already existing free API keys but suddenly a week ago they have deleted them without any warning. The plugin is still working as intended, but unfortunately without the free APIs at the moment. We are considering the best way to approach this change currently.
Does not work: API Error
Usually these issues are related to the WorldWeatherOnline API, your own API key and the API settings in the plugin. Please verify that your API key is valid working in your WWO profile and that you entered it correctly in the plugin settings.
Slider is not working anymore. it stopped. It displays a message WeatherSlider Error: API key has been disabled.
This is the website. Look in the footer.
SORRY. No it actually does not work. I don’t know what is happening but I bought this plugin when free API was supported. WeatherSlider Error: API key has been disabled.
Key is entered
WWO has promised to keep the already existing free API keys but suddenly a few weeks ago they have deleted them without any warning. The plugin is still working as intended, but unfortunately without the free APIs at the moment. We are considering the best way to approach this change and looking at other data providers currently.
Good day, please confirm Durban, South Africa is listed in this plugin, and can this be inserted into a revolution slider?
Yes, the weather data provider that we are currently using with WeatherSlider is listing the mentioned location.
Unfortunately we are not familiar with the Revolutin Slider’s methods so we cannot confirm that it can insert our widget, you should contact them to see whether their plugin is capable of integrating ours.
Please also note that WWO – our weather data provider -
(https://www.worldweatheronline.com/) only offers premium APIs at the moment, so you cannot use the free API anymore.
Am I correct that this plugin is in fact dead and won’t work without a paid subscription to WWO? This is the case for a few months now and it seems you don’t show any effort to fix it by using another weather provider. If so, you should remove this item from the code canyon store. Regards, Ramon
The plugin is working and functioning as inteded, the same as before. Only the available APIs provided by WWO has changed, unfortunately they no longer provide free APIs for their users. It was a sudden and unannounced change on their part, that we had no control over. Once we’ve decided on the best approach for this problem, we will make the necessary steps and changes. Thank you for your understanding.

In the meantime you can get a new API subscription on WWO’s site, if you would like to. Thank you for your understanding.
