    Hi,

    I'm trying to get a plug in weather script for UK, for http://www.crudenbay.net/ . If you go there now to look at the weather you'll find I've had to link in to YAHOO which looks rather amateurish.

    I've looked at the four on offer here: http://cgi.resourceindex.com/Program...ieval/Weather/

    But they are only for the US, (or don't work).

    Anyone know of somewhere for a UK weather report?

    Thanks,

    Peter

    Check out the news section at backpacklondon.com for UK weather report links. The focus is on London, but from there you'll easily find the whole of the UK.

    Thanks but that isn't really what I'm after.

    I've got a weather report on http://www.aztecsports.co.uk/ but it is a bit bulky, I'm after just a clickable ticker-tape really.

    Thanks anyway!

    Peter

    Logically you can try the Met Office web site at this URl - http://www.met-office.gov.uk/sec3/sec3.html then click the region you want weather for. Three images appear, if you want to place those maps on your page then open up the source code and copy the image tags and place them in your own page - And bingo, whenever the Met Office updates those maps, the ones on your site get updated too. I would like to add that they might not like you doing this if you have a high traffic web site.
