Hello!

I wonder if it is possible to publish a weather widget in a presentation? If so, how?

Thank you!

I have this problem too.

I do not know what you mean buy "widget" but I use a simple web URL in my presentations.

I am sure there are some more creative ways that you could use the weather data from a

external web site to post your weather stats. With all of the Web tools available, you might

be able to develop an homegrown HTML page (widget) that you simply point your

presentations to.

Hi,

If there is someone else interested on this I found how tu pubblish this widgets.

If you visit a website like http://weather.weatherbug.com/desktop-weather/web-widgets.html you only have to follow up their directions to get the code. Once you have the code you have to paste it in a notepad then save as .html and save into your webserver or wherever you save your conten. Then in DMM add it to the library and that's it.

Hope this is informative for you.

Thank you!

Tomas, could you share that URL?  I'd like something that looks nice, but don't have the skill to do homegrown.  I don't know that the WeatherBug solution works for me.

Thank you.

I can't read the article because I don't have access to the site it links to.  I have requested permission, but it has been a couple of days and I still can't get in.
