Weather plugin supports GPS coordinates

    If you have used our Weather plugin, you may have noticed that sometimes it had a problem with getting the weather data for some locations. For example, if you wanted to get the weather for Portland, Maine, USA, you'd always get Portland, Oregon instead. This was due to the limitations of the Openweathermap service used by our plugin, which doesn't support narrowing down the location by specify a region or a state.

    The good news is that we have now fixed this annoying issue by adding a possibility to specify locations by GPS coordinates. It's simple: all you need to do is convert your location to GPS coordinates using an included link and use the latitude and longitude instead of country and city to specify your location. This system is very accurate and makes sure you always the get the correct weather data. The upgraded weather plugin is available for download in our customer area.
