Responsive web design adapts to mobile displays
If the widget is in a horizontal layout (eg. placed in an article), for users who visit your page on a mobile device, the widget will reformat to vertical layout.
Details of current condition (feels like temperature, wind, humidity, pressure, UV index) and more than 3 hours/days of the forecast are hidden on mobile devices.
These accommodations are made in order to unclutter appearance and preserve beautiful design on narrow displays.
Easily styles to suit your theme
Besides choosing between two predefined layouts (vertical and horizontal), there are multiple options you can set in order to adjust widget to your website.
Font size – widget’s font size, that automatically adjusts accordingly to web site’s font size and the placement on a page, can be overwritten (in px, pt, em, rem, % etc.).
Background Color – background and borders adapt to current temperature, but the background can also be set to fixed color, even with transparency.
Text Color – is auto set as the best contrast to the automatic background color, but text color can also be overwritten.
Inline style – there is even an option in shortcode to set inline style of the widget (eg. float:right;width:200px).
Weather condition’s icons are beautiful, simple and adapt size, color and shades of widget’s text.
Current conditions, hourly and long-term forecast
Choose weather information to display: from current conditions and hourly to long-term forecast.
Current conditions show current temperature, with a weather icon, feels like temperature, wind, humidity, pressure and UV index along with the sunrise/sunset time for the location.
Hourly forecast shows up to 5 hours of forecasted temperatures, with the weather icons.
The daily forecast shows up to 5 days of weather forecasts with high/low temperatures, with the weather condition icons.
Website users are pleased when you provide them the information they need in a clear and concise way (eg. by placing weather info on your pages).
By checking an option “detailed forecast” in settings, you’ll provide an option for visitors to open (in a new window) Weather Atlas’ full forecast for chosen location – and your website visitors will be grateful for that.
Placement in content or sidebar
Weather widget can be placed in a sidebar in a usual way (please read: Installation and FAQ).
And there is an option to place weather directly in articles, by using shortcode option (more on this option in FAQ section).
Any location worldwide
There are over 800.000 locations from 238 countries and territories. Guess you’ll find your location 🙂
Multi Languages and units
Currently supported languages are English and Spanish.
Temperature and other weather data are displayed in either Imperial (°F, in, mi) or Metric system (°C, mb, mm, km).
Multiple widgets option
Placing multiple widgets (either in a sidebar or in content) on the same page is not a problem.
Each weather widget has individual options and “lives independently” from others.
Widgets don’t slow down a website, as they show cached weather data, stored in your database, and periodically update data from our service.
All options are easy to set, but if you still have questions or suggestions – please read FAQ and then drop us a line in the support forum.
