Functionality

Map seems bugged (Chrome Win8.1) and it could really use a better way to lookup proper city names.

Ease of use

Easy enough once you figure out your API key

I used this to: Unable to change temperature to read F instead of C and cannot set windspeed to use mph instead of Kph
Owner's reply: Dear Josh,

Kweather supports metric as well as imperial units. Please note, that kweather is caching always the data it receives from Wunderground, independent from your websites cache configuration. Thus, after changing the units you have to flush the cache (or wait 15 minutes) before the changes take into effect.

Regards, Paul

Great Extension

Simple an easy to work with this extension - NICE WORK!


Real location can be set


Posted on 06 August 2013

This module is the first extension I found, that has the parameters for an exact loaction.

That's possible by coordinates or a real city-name.

It would be fine if the Wunderground-logo could be switched of or placed below the weatherinfo.

The module can autoselect the site-language, so the visitor can view the weatherinfo for his own langauge.

Thanks Paul. Great job.


Simple and easy

After changing and adding some comments in the german module, it works pretty good and i'm glad. Thanks for such a easy to use Weather Extension :-)


Very useful module


Posted on 07 January 2013

The first time, I installed the module, it did not work. After some research, I realized the need to enabled cURL in php.ini.

Now it works very well. You can also configuring the layout by adjusting the css file in our template.


Wonderful weather


Posted on 21 December 2012

I have been searching for ages to find a good weather module that is fairly simple to configure, looks good, and of course displays the weather accurately. This one certainly does the job and very well.



I initially had a small styling issue due to a clash with my template, but with a small tweak to the css file the problem was solved.


The module is same as GK4 of gavick, but with possibilities of having module in multilingual


Good module!
