    June:
    Just using 2 day for now... checking into accuweather, but yahoo has made only today and tomorrow available as of yesterday.

    Just figured I'd help to get peoples widgets to at least display SOMETHING, rather than the black screens they're getting now.

    Thanks MJ.....I know will get it working as I am having no luck.
    You have a PM.

    Looks as if yahoo is limiting free API. I have heard of them having a paid API soon. Not what I wanted to hear I have found a few others I could use for 5 day. Wanted to know the current situation before I dove in. Thanks.

    They've implemented it already, June. here's a link Yahoo! Search BOSS - YDN

    sucks.... I know...
    weatherunderground seems to be a viable alternative.

    Great to have you 'on the job' June's!! But I would strongly ask you programmers to use this 'crisis' to move all widgets to WeatherUnderground - that Rasputin says is great. Like Obama's last Chief of Staff, Rom Emmanuel, stated "Never let a good crisis go to waste".. All major services are FREE now - BUT - they need an API key - (still free, per Rasputin).. We just need to add a 'var' to the Config.js for each of us to put in our API KEY. Pretty simple -- just like we had to add WOEID back in the day..

    Per Ras - more accurately put - Yahoo is limiting how much 'free' data comes down their public NON-API accessed lines. An API key with Yahoo is still 'free'. You just have to 'get one'. This is of course - so they can send advertising to your phone eventually. It's a 'legally-sanctioned' phishing scam - unfortunately..

    Works here
    MJ, I've had a couple of widgets work perfectly on TacoHTMLEdit on my computer that did NOT work the same on my phone. So it working in Dreamweaver - weirdly, is not always perfectly predictive of what will appear and work on the phone. You'd think it 'would'. but....

    ive posted a couple links. One to weather underground. Seems a good place. Which is strange yahoo has there logo in there iOS app. Not very familiar with them, but will see. API keys are a bit much. Most are free on certain requests. I would like to just get around that. If I can pull from an rss/xml I will before using keys.

    This worked for all of the forecast iwidgets and LS widgets I am using. By adding this /* to the beginning and */ to the end like below.

    f (obj.icon == 3200) obj.icon = 48;

    /*obj.Day1 = request.responseXML.getElementsByTagName("forecast ")[1].getAttribute("day");
    obj.Day1Hi = request.responseXML.getElementsByTagName("forecast ")[1].getAttribute("high");
    obj.Day1Lo = request.responseXML.getElementsByTagName("forecast ")[1].getAttribute("low");
    obj.Day1Code = request.responseXML.getElementsByTagName("forecast ")[1].getAttribute("code");

    obj.Day2 = request.responseXML.getElementsByTagName("forecast ")[2].getAttribute("day");
    obj.Day2Hi = request.responseXML.getElementsByTagName("forecast ")[2].getAttribute("high");
    obj.Day2Lo = request.responseXML.getElementsByTagName("forecast ")[2].getAttribute("low");
    obj.Day2Code = request.responseXML.getElementsByTagName("forecast ")[2].getAttribute("code");

    obj.Day3 = request.responseXML.getElementsByTagName("forecast ")[3].getAttribute("day");
    obj.Day3Hi = request.responseXML.getElementsByTagName("forecast ")[3].getAttribute("high");
    obj.Day3Lo = request.responseXML.getElementsByTagName("forecast ")[3].getAttribute("low");
    obj.Day3Code = request.responseXML.getElementsByTagName("forecast ")[3].getAttribute("code");

    obj.Day4 = request.responseXML.getElementsByTagName("forecast ")[4].getAttribute("day");
    obj.Day4Hi = request.responseXML.getElementsByTagName("forecast ")[4].getAttribute("high");
    obj.Day4Lo = request.responseXML.getElementsByTagName("forecast ")[4].getAttribute("low");
    obj.Day4Code = request.responseXML.getElementsByTagName("forecast ")[4].getAttribute("code");*/
    +1 it worked for me also. I do have a few questions though that I'm not sure can be answered yet:

    Is this still a temporary workaround or is it apparent that yahoo changed things and we will no longer be able to get forecast info on our widgets permanently?

    -any forecast only widgets... Is it safe to say they can be discarded all together or is it better to save them in case yahoo starts working again or a fix is provided by the widget creator?

    -on widgets that have touch functionality on which the touching of the widget displayed the forecast and no longer does, can the square boxes that used to contain the weather icons and temperature info be completely removed or can the touch function part be disabled all together?

    The last question doesn't apply to just UNIAW mods as the forecast and forecast background can be removed in config.js. But this is a general question for all widgets since a lot of gurus hang out here in this thread.

    If a creator fixes them, they are likely going to provide a Complete widget in a new download... toss them

    Yes Touch Function can be removed quite easily in most cases
