hi, if I goto weather.com I can find a town local to me (prades, france).

When I use the plugin though this location is not here. Does anyone know how to add this location?

Also, if I set it to update every 30 minutes and then restart xlobby it goes back to the default of 240 minutes.

Lastly, it does not seem to pertain new radar images.

Has anyone else noticed this?

thanks

CaM

I do not know why your village/town does not work but the 240 minutes is the current minimum update.
You can force an update at any time. At least in the U.S.

hi Jay, thanks for the info regarding the update time.

I might go back to xoap which does have my town and can update every hour.

thanks

I thought xoap was extinct?

hi, I last used xoap about 3 months back and it was working fine.

I guess if it has become exint then I can only hope that xweather one day catches up to the funionality of xoap (i.e. many more weather locations, last update time, definable update times)

thanks for your help.

EDIT:

Last Update is

plugin>xweather>current>%updated>date:h:mm tt%

I was told that 240 is the default to prevent my ip from getting banned for excessive updating. Not sure if that is true or not and preferred shorter updates in the winter.
