How do I set it?

It can be added to pages or inside the widget area as a sidebar element. The widget/block settings include:


  • To find your location use the following link. You can use “city name” or “city name, country code” (ex: London, UK). Note that the widget will auto translate itself to the language from the theme panel only if a translation is available. The available languages (section 4.2)


  • Celsius
  • Fahrenheit

Under the “General” tab you will find the block title settings with its text and background color options.


Top menu

The weather widget can also be set to appear on the top menu. Because space is restricted it will only display the sky conditions, current temperature and the selected location.



Settings Weather Widget

You can set it from Theme Panel -> Header -> Top bar. Just add the location, the API key, select the units and turn on the Show Weather switch.
