Getting the windguru forecast codes.

The plugin system will only work if you have registered with windguru and have created favourite forecasts in your windguru account.

  1. Register with Windguru: If you are not already registered with Windguru go to https://www.windguru.cz/int/novy.php
  2. Login to your account.
  3. Go to Settings > Forecasts for your Websites.
  4. You are able to add up to 10 spots – either click on Add Another Spot or select one from those you have previously created.
  5. In the forecast preview you will see the forecast followed by some code. You want the two numbers located inside the php code.
  6. Place these numbers inside the plugin call as explained for each plugin.
