We have received many requests for a free weather module that is compatible with Joomla 2.5 and Joomla 3.0 version. Finally here is the module that use jQuery and Yahoo Weather API to display the weather in one or more locations. The module is simple to use, however  I will explain the configuration a little bit.

The above picture is a screenshot of the module parameters. As you can see, there are many options, but the most important are the location codes. The modules allows you to choose from two types of location codes: weather.com and weather.yahoo.com

It is important to know, that these two services, use different codes, you will have to select from module parameters, which one you want to use. Now you have to find the city code. Will explain how to do it:

How to find city codes?

1. Weather.com Service

Visit this site www.Weather.com and search for a city. Let’s say we search for London using the form that looks like the following image:

The URL of the city page will look like this:

http://www.weather.com/weather/right-now/UKXX0085:1

The bold text is the city code.

2. Yahoo.com Service

Visit www.Weather.Yahoo.com and search for a ZIP code or for a city name. The search input looks like this:

The search result URL  for London will look like this:

http://weather.yahoo.com/united-kingdom/england/london-44418/

The bold text is the city code.

Use which service you prefer, there should be no difference in displaying the weather. If you find any bug or want to report an issue regarding this module, please use the commenting form.
