By using the Weather Module in Modern Events Calendar, you can display the current weather situations of the location of your event to your visitors.
Modern Events Calendar Weather Module Options
Note: Weather module is only available in MEC Pro version.
In order to enable this module, your need to go to MEC Settings > Modules > Weather and check the “Show weather module on event page” option.
After that, you need to get an API key from one of the following two providers:
weatherapi.com API Key
This website is totally free to use and you can get your API at this link.
darksky.net API Key
There is another website that you can use their API key to show the weather situation to your users. The only problem is that they’re not accepting any new users right now.
For the old users of this website that have already received their API keys:
- You need to setup a location for your event that has latitude and longitude (refer to this documentation)
Show weather imperial units
By enabling this option, weather units will be displayed in Imperial system.
Show weather change units button
If you want your users to be able to change the units of the weather module, enable this option.
How is this going to work now that DarkSky have stopped new registrations for their API?
Unfortunately since Apple purchase the Dark Sky Weather app, new users are not able to get new API freely and we have a problem with this section.
We are researching for a new tool to replace with Dark Sky so we can overcome this issue.
thank you very much for your patience.
