S5 Weather

This tutorial will explain how to install and configure the S5 Weather module.

The S5 Weather Module pulls XML data from Yahoo.com and displays the weather for the current day and the upcoming 2 or 5 days along with images depicting the type weather. You can enter a zip code in the administration side and also switch between Celsius and Fahrenheit.

Note - Many of our club products contain specific styling for our extensions. These styles cannot be transferred from one product to another; they are integrated into the design. The same extension is used on all installations, the themes themselves contain the styling overrides. If a particular theme does not include unique styling for a particular extension, then the default style is used.

Be sure to read the tooltips and other descriptions in the backend of this extension. There are a lot of tips and further information found in these areas.
