First I'd like to thank everybody that has emailed me about the weather module.
Second, I've posted an updated version which i'm still calling beta. I've added various features that people have requested.
I've also got a new set of image icons, but they aren't quite ready for download. I'll let you guys know when they are ready, but they don't include any text over the icon so they should work for any language.
Anyways, Click Here to download the weather module without any registration!

Sorry, the images are not GIF images. The problem with moving to gifs is, the PNG's have shadows behind the images that really give the graphic some depth. Without the PNG's those shadows would have a off-white colored border. They wouldn't be fully transparent
like the PNGs.
I should be able to make a GIF version, but they won't look as nice as the PNGs
Anyways, I have added all the other requested features. One of them is the icon size. Check out the
settings page, it's grown slightly.

I've updated the weather module with a bug fix if the user's post code was null. I've added some web.config settings for the partner id and license key. These settings aren't required, but if you are planning
on using this module on more than one page, i'd recommend you set them. They are
appSettings "Weather.PartnerId" and "Weather.LicenseKey"
I've also added some more translation keys, hopefully we'll have a bunch of languages included in the next release. Please let me know if you notice any other keys missing, I still might not be trapping against every possible string returned from
I've also decided to not label this release beta, as I haven't had any major issues with it. Please let me know if it doesn't work correctly for you.

EDIT: Nevermind, i didn't select the location properly.
I got this error after configruring the weather settings. I had a licence key and partner ID, so i know that's not the problem.
Error: Weather is currently unavailable.

I'm going to add some more checks, it seems like people frequently miss the location setting.
Hopefully the next version will include a nice message that tells you which setting is missing.
