Adding: Page Builders
To add an OpenWeatherMap within any Page Builder that supports a Text Editor widget/module using the Classic Editor (sometimes known as TinyMCE), refer to the Classic Editor instructions above.
Refer to the Dynamic Elements Documentation for details specific to your Page Builder.
If your Page Builder does not provide a Text Editor widget/block that uses the Classic Editor, you can still use Dynamic Elements. However, you’ll need to manually build the shortcode, inserting it into your Page Builder’s content – for example:
[page-generator-pro-open-weather-map parameter="value" ...]
|forecast_type||integer||The weather forecast style to display. Refer to the below table for sample output of each.|
|location||string or keyword||The location to display the marker on the map|
|country||string or keyword||The country that the above location is in|
|units||imperial,metric||The temperature display:
– imperial: Farenheight
– metric: Celcius
- Forecast Type: Select the type of weather forecast to display
- Location: Enter the City, County or State/Region (or keyword, if you have one that has keyword data comprising of this location data).
- If entering a ZIP Code, the weather for the ZIP Code’s City will be displayed. This is by design, and how OpenWeatherMap widgets function.
- Country: Select the Country the above Location is in.
- Units: Select whether to display the forecast in Imperial (Farenheight) or Metric (Celcius)
Refer to the below table for sample output of each available weather forecast type:
