    WU Download Error

    Hi Jeff,

    The plugin is having an issue where it has not been able to download an update in a couple days. Yet I can copy the URL and it is there and correct.

    Jun-30 09:03:21 weatherXML Error downloadFile: WU Forecast from:<API>/forecast10day/geolookup/tide/rawtide/planner_07010708/lang:EN/q/<LON>,<LAT>.xml. Error: Unable to connect to the remote server

    url in browser gives xml file (I closed up all the levels):

    HTML Code:
    <alerts> </alerts>
    Is there anything I can do?

    Not really. While you are getting a good read when you try from a url, it doesn't mean you will get it every time. The plugin also reads a file from the url and gets good data part of the time.

    Unfortunately, this is a system wide problem. There are users on the WU forums that are paying for the data and they are having the same issues. One of the pay customers was paying at the $600 per month level and ended up cancelling because the data was not reliable.

    I am working on a replacement for WU. That will be my main project for July.
