weather ID not recognized!? (February 18, 2010, 11:13:19 PM) quote  
Hi, I recently had to re-install everything on my machine and after I re-installed the new OmniGrowl the weather notification does not seem to work anymore! I live in Europe and it used to work for my city using the Yahoo ID, but, I guess, since then Yahoo have changed their ID system and OmniGrowl no longer seems to recognize the ID anymore. Is that a known issue? Is there a workaround or a fix?

Thanks!

What was your old ID? (OG tries to distinguish the old Location ID from the new WOEID, so it would be important to know this.)

Did you try putting in the new WOEID? Are you using OG 3.8?

Thanks for the reply!

I don't remember the old ID! I had put it in there a while ago and it had worked until I had to re-format my harddrive etc. All the old settings got lost when I had to re-format...

I am living in Copenhagen, Denmark and when checking on the Yahoo Weather homepage I get this URL: http://weather.yahoo.com/denmark/hovedstaden/copenhagen-554890/

From that, I took it the (new) (WOEID) ID for Copenhagen is 554890, but that triggers no response from OG (I also tried the test function within the pref pane - no response)

Yes, I am running 3.8 (pretty sure, but I'll do a re-boot in a sec to be absolutely positive

Thanks,

OK; so I DIDN'T have 3.8 installed! I just corrected that and now everything works fine again!

Sorry, I should have caught that one myself! Aarrrrgh!

Thanks again and have a nice weekend!

Great. Yeah, OG recognizes the new WOEID starting with version 3.8. However if you have the old location ID in there, it should also work with 3.8+, until Yahoo disables it. So in short, best to use the new WOEID with OG 3.8+.
