Weather plugin

Post by Zerotechz1 » Mon Jul 13, 2015 7:47 pm

Just installed serendipity through my installatron program with godaddy......Tried to enable the weather plugin and all Im getting is "Loading the PEAR Services/Weather module failed. Please insure that the module is installed." Im using the "pixel" template...Ive noticed that the plugin Im using seems to have been abandoned and its last updates were updated around 2012? is it possible to make this plugin work? If so how?

Yeah the weather plugin has PEAR dependencies that you need to additionall load up onto your server.

However, weather modules nowadays are much better solved with client-side JS weather widgets. They deliver more up to date data, format more nicely and are much easier to integrate (i.e. with a HTML nugget plugin). Check this out:
