Hi, I , as well as some other users have found that changing the beginning of the url from xoap.weather..... to xml.weather.... will fix it.
hope it helps,

Also..
How do you get the reader/notes to work?
The reader wont display the feeds and the notes wont allow me to modify them.

Any updates?? I really liked this theme, though I can't even use the half of them 'cause they are broken. (Ie. weather, notes, etc.)

is there an image file that doesn't have a border (dark brown)? Or did your photo just cut that out? Great work by the way!

I'm slightly confused. I can get nothing to appear except the clock. I load the skin in rainmeter browser, but nothing happens. Its obviously not a problem with the installation, because I got the clock to work.

actually. i made this for myself, on a whim i sent it into lifehacker and when it was posted, became pretty popular so i decided to gather everything and release it. the beauty of the rainmeter application is: you can customize it in any way you want, so go for it.

But the icons and 'apps' i downloaded from you didn't fit the wallpaper in lenght, and they were too low resolution.

This is great, a real breath of fresh air compared to the thousands of clear/glossy/crystal skins available. Here's my crack at it. [link]

My only problem is that I can't seem to get the weather skin to function...I found my weather code (USTX0327) and copied it in the location specified in the skin code, but still no dice. Any help would be appreciated.

Hi, your version looks great, what font are you using?

Other users are having the same problem, but one has found a solution. Change "xoap" to "xml" in the url and it should fix the problem.
hope that helps:)
