Your Guide to Using RokWeather for WordPress
RokWeather is an Ajax-powered weather widget which utilizes the Yahoo or Wunderground APIs to display weather data and related information from regions all across the globe.
Included are options to display temperature, climate, wind speed as well as frontend based location user interaction, default location settings and cookie enabling options.
RokWeather has the following requirements in order to operate:
NOTE: Internet Explorer 11+ and Edge are supported, but versions 8, 9, and 10 are no longer supported by Microsoft and while they may work, are not recommended.
The Google API has been replaced by Yahoo and Wunderground. Also, if you experience the Fatal error: Call to undefined function
curl_init()error then you need to have CURL enabled on your server. You can ask your hosting provider to activate this.
Installing RokWeather takes just a matter of few minutes.
The first thing you will need to do is download the latest version of RokWeather. The package you will download contains everything you need to get RokWeather up and running and it is compatible with WordPress 3.2 or higher. It does not need to be uncompressed.
Once you have downloaded the package, go into the WordPress Administrator and:
From WordPress 3.x:
wp-admin -> Plugins -> Add New -> Upload
wp_rokweather.zipthat you just downloaded from your local drive.
Once installation is complete, you will receive a message (shown above) indicating that the plugin was installed successfully. To activate RokWeather right away, select Activate Plugin from this confirmation page.
NOTE: RocketTheme packages can be updated by uploading the new plugin and/or theme files via FTP, replacing the ones that currently exist on the server. Alternatively, you can remove the existing plugin directory you would like to update via FTP and upload the new package through the backend Installation tool. Deleting a plugin and replacing it using only the Plugin Manager can cause plugin settings to be lost. In either case, we recommend deactivating the plugin or theme prior to replacing its files.
