Weather Gadget No Longer Working?

The Weather Gadget has stopped working on my presentations and its Configuration interface is completely empty, like that of the Google Spreadsheet Gadget. I know there is a newer Weather Widget but, like the Spreadsheet Gadget/Widget, they are NOT equal. Is anyone else experiencing this issue? Does anyone know if this is a data feed issue, or if the Gadget has been disabled intentionally?

Hi there,

Unfortunately our weather gadget has been deprecated.

Is there anything in specific you are trying to achieve with the gadget that isn't workable with our new widget?

Thanks!

The Weather Widget did not have the same layout options as the Gadget. But alas, I can no longer even check it out. There is now no Weather Widget in the "store"

David,

The Weather Widget by Digichief is available here. Currently, it's our only available option for weather.

Which is not a free Widget, but a paid 3rd party one. Not an option. Why would you disable the only RV-provided, free option for something that worked well already?

David,

Sorry for the confusion here, but the Weather Widget was never actually a free widget. We did have a version out, which was going to be rolled into the premium model. Users were alerted to this by a disclaimer on the widget.


This was the plan for the Weather Widget, because providing that weather data is actually a premium service that we paid for. DigiChief approached us about featuring their own weather widget in our store, which gave us the opportunity to cut our own overhead and development liability.

Many of our users are now utilizing the DigiChief Weather Widget, it's a great product and we've had a lot of good feedback on it!
