Zap Weather is a Joomla application that displays weather for U.S.A. cities and territories using data provided by the National Weather Service. Forecasts, current conditions and weather alerts are supported. Many display options are available, including single and multiple day forecasts and a choice of either 3, 12 or 24 hour forecast display. Zap Weather is also compatible with the JED extension Zap Calendar, allowing the display of weather forecast information within a calendar.

Zap Weather is absolutely free to use and DOES NOT have any advertising or links to commercial sites that other weather products require. The weather data Zap Weather uses is provided free of charge by the U.S. government.

I loved installing and using this! Easy to use and set it up in minutes on a J1.5.

Unfortunately, I upgraded all of my sites to 2.5 and now I am missing this!! Please, please develop for J2.5!

Owner's reply: Thanks for your patience, tech girl. A Joomla 2.5 release is now available for Z Weather.

Good product and simple too

I am well amazed with this product. I would recommend this product to all with happiness

i try to contact the developer and ask in the forum and NO SUPPORT RECEIVED, at the end i need to remove the extension because not work as advertised

Owner's reply: I'm sorry you did not get a timely response to your issue. The web site forum is actively monitored and the application is supported. There was also a patch to Z Weather released recently.

Do you have somewher the german translation? That would be great.

This is a great component.

Today I spent an hour to find how to resolve "Current Conditions" issue (for those who has an older version) without removing old and installing new version.

Great component...

I was searching for a module that can display weather report for a specific city. Through this component I got the data I needed. It s really cool... But I want to display it on the top portion [ There i have placed a module] of my site for all the pages... ie as a module. I dont know how to show it in a module. Can anyone please help me..

Thanks in advance...

This is one of the better weather modules/componants available for Joomla. Installation is quick, easy, however, you MUST follow the directions precisely - anyone just slapping this into their site WILL have issues doing so.

Weather forecasts are derived directly from the National Weather Service, and are updated "on the fly"...

This is definately a great mod/com for US sites wishing to put weather on their websites.

Works fine! Just follow the instructions -


1. install com - set up menu item

2. install mod

3. chron - not getting it to work with a godaddy/shared account.

The time displayed is in GMT - not sure how to change it to local time (same comments on zcontent forume)

Tried to install with the legacy plugin and it was a not go. Crashed my site with a big fat error message. 10 minutes i will never get back.

I would try another component unless using 1.0

I have a few Joomla sites with Z Weather running for some time now and I must say this is a First-Class little tool.

Installation is flawless, as is the overall function of the component and module. They both are nicely customizable and provide a clean, professional look. With the Cron job grabbing the weather data in the background, the visitor gets no delay in the page load. SWEET!

Oh, and the support! I had an issue that ended up being my host's fault, but my buddy at Z Content stuck with me the whole way and went the extra mile to help.

Install this on your site to prove to yourself how good it is, and then send them a donation. That's what I did!

Take back control of your Joomla! website. Zap Audit finds hacked files buried in the thousands of files and folders in your Joomla! file system as well as check for best practices. Zap Audit finds hacked files in your Joomla! site in seven ways: Unauthorized Files - Zap Audit looks for files that have been added to a Joomla! or Zap Audit folder but not in the original installation. CRC Check - Zap Audit performs a CRC checksum comparison between the files in the Joomla! and Zap Audit distributions and the corresponding file in the file system. If the checksums are unequal, this means the file was modified since its installation, a common technique used by hackers. Suspect Files - For 3rd party add-ons and other files not in the Joomla! or Zap Audit distribution, a suspect file check is made to determine if the file is exhibiting a hacked file signature. PHP Files In Media Folders - Media folders are for media, so lets keep it that way! PHP files found in media folders are flagged. PHP Files In The Temporary Folder - 3rd party add-on installations may leave behind PHP files, fertile ground for hacked files to hide in. Files And Folders With The Wrong Permission - All files and folders are checked against the recommended Joomla! file and folder permissions. PHP Files Added Or Modified Within The Past 3 Days - If a file was added or modified recently it will appear in this list. Valid Joomla! log and cache files are removed from the list to reduce false positive results on valid Joomla! files. In addition to the file checks, Zap Audit analyzes the site for Joomla! and database best practices. Zap Audit generates a professional audit report of your site suitable for printing or e-mailing. With the audit report, finding hard to find hacked files is easy and only takes minutes, not hours using manual methods. This allows delaying or even eliminating the need to rebuild a hacked Joomla! site from scratch. Site down? No problem. Zap Audit can analyze an off-line site by running a file audit from a working Joomla! site using a zip file of the files from the infected site. Joomla! 2.5 sites can be audited in the same manner by running Zap Audit on a Joomla! 3 site using a zip file of the Joomla! 2.5 site files. This is not a service. All analyses are performed locally. There are no restrictions to the number of websites were Zap Audit is installed. The free "lite" version performs the same tests as the standard version in summary mode. The standard version provides a detailed analysis audit report. The Pro version adds proactive monitoring of one or multiple sites by sending an e-mail alert when it detects a new audit finding.
