I've read almost everything I comment and have this thing working like a champ with all the help you guys have given.  But just to confirm, it looks like the RSS feed isn't clickable to open, it just shows the list to read.  Correct?  Thanks for the awesome Skin!

I fixed the weather so that it can pull from yahoo's new weather RSS feeds.

Love the skin. Has anyone solved the RSS feed items not clicking through to the original web site? I'm using Google News RSS and the cursor is changing to a link but isn't going anywhere. Thanks.

Is it possible to make the RSS feed clickable can't seem to find anything on these comments.

Also add another RSS feed and maybe make the RSS titles longer so you can read more.

Thanks

I simply do not understand how to deal with the Weather and Temperature. I just want it to change it so it shows my location's Temp. in Farenheit and my weather. But I can't simply get around it. I live in Carolina, Puerto Rico. According to Weather.com, it's Partly Cloudy and a temp of 87'F. How do I make it so Before Dawn Bar shows this?

ok, I found my location.

[Variables]
Font=Century Gothic
Location=USPR0020
RSSURL=[link]
RSSName="Lifehacker"

that's fine and all, but I still can't put it on Farenheit. You said in the instructions to change

Url=[link]

to

Url=[link]

before I made the change, the temp said 33. That's obviously Celsius, since in Farenheit it should be around 90F or something like that.

but after I changed it, it showed 1. That's NOT Farenheit. How do I fix this..?

Find the MeasureTemp line in the bar.ini for Before Dawn. REM out with a semi-colon (;) or change the line from

Formula=(MeasureTempFar - 32) / 1.8

to

Formula=(MeasureTempFar - 0)

The entire script piece would look something like this:

[MeasureTemp]
Measure=Calc
;Formula=(MeasureTempFar - 32) / 1.8
Formula=(MeasureTempFar - 0)

That should display Fahrenheit temp.

Stupid emoticons

here's a paste bin with what to do to get it to display as Fahrenheit, it will kill the ability to use Celsius however.

I fixed mine by removing the ability to calculate celcius

FIND THIS:

[MeasureTempFar]
Measure=Plugin
Plugin=Plugins\WebParser.dll
Url=[MeasureWeatherRSS]
StringIndex=11

[MeasureTemp]
Measure=Calc
Formula=(MeasureTempFar - 32) / 1.8



REPLACE WITH THIS:

[MeasureTempFar]
Measure=Plugin
Plugin=Plugins\WebParser.dll
Url=[MeasureWeatherRSS]
StringIndex=11

[MeasureTemp]
Measure=Calc
Formula=(MeasureTempFar)

Is it possible to add different letters to the RSS-feed? You see, I live in Norway where we have three extra letters witch is called " ", " " and " ". My RSS-feed is all messed up, everytime one of these letter are mention in the feed, an question mark comes up... Looks kind of horrible, really.
