Weather Link on home page!

A couple boards I know have one and it would be kinda nice! I know for a fact that some people will be sitting on a board and want to check there local weather or see what there current forecast is etc etc. Instead of opening a new tab couldn't we add a weather link/hub on the main home page? My prime example of a forum having this down to a tee is "soflasportbikes.com" All members have to do is enter in there zip code, save it with there personal info then when ever you log in your local weather/radar is on the main page to the side! Just a suggestion

We've had one on the homepage for over 5 years now. We use to use the Weatherroom feed for a while but back then it was very inconsistent and would go down often so I switched us over to The Weather Channel.

FYI doesn't work if one is outside the USA. No "zip code" ...


Helibars, MRA screen, Ohlins damper, reversed shift pattern, sorted suspension, braided lines, Michelin Pilot Power, all else stock 'coz it's fast enough!

ok guys, I switched us over to AccuWeather. I wish I had some control in the way their module looks because even though it gives more/better info it's a poor design

Just for the heck of it, I tried typing my (Canadian) postal code where it's expecting a "zip code". Doesn't work!

Yea, what I'm seeing with my postal code is this:



And even that is wrong. Sky is overcast and it's wet outside.. :(

HAH! That works - provided you enter the space between the two groups of three digits! Thanks ...

Interestingly, it's not smart enough to realize that we speak metric here, though ...
