Hey, trying to get this working but when I insert all the details it just says city not found.
Openweather has the city listed on thier website so cant be a unlisted city.
The details I used are:
my key
City = Sandton
Country = South Africa
Language = English
Measure Units Format=Metric

Strange. It works in the preview on my side. Can't replicate with your data.

Maybe a temporal problem on OpenWeather's side. (?)
I will keep trying with different cities to see if I encounter this problem.

Sorry for the late reply.

Yaranaika_san updated Simple Weather Overlay. with a new update entry:

Option for using next day's minimum temperature and fixed the temperature auto updater.

New features:
  • Added the option to use the next day's minimum temperature forecast. The explanation for this change is quoted below, also available from the main website on the new (why) button.
The OpenWeather's API this site uses doesn't keep the actual minimum temperature data of the day. Instead it changes the value to the minimum between the current hour and...

Yaranaika_san updated Simple Weather Overlay. with a new update entry:

Geolocation button added and proper error messages.

New features:
  • Geolocation functionality: With the new button within the "city" field, you can now use your actual location without typing it manually. You can see how this works in this video https://i.imgur.com/jhViJ57.mp4
    Note: this is not 100% precise, so if you get the wrong place using this, you may reload the page and insert the data manually.
  • Proper error messages: Now, instead of getting the generic "City not found" (that...

i have tried with 2 api keys and says bad api key

Example
Strange. I get no errors with your link. It shows me the temperature of Detroit.

One thing I've noticed when testing keys in OpenWeatherMap is that they don't work instantly when you create them. So that may be the cause of why the message "Bad API Key" was displayed.

Can you test if you get data from this link? https://api.openweathermap.org/data/2.5/onecall?lat=-33.6&lon=-70&appid=YOUR_API_KEY
you must replace "YOUR_API_KEY" with the key you got from OpenWeatherMap.

One last thing. You should remove the example link you provided. It contains your personal API key and it can be used by anyone.

I've just noticed that you can't edit messages in this forum after some minutes. So please deactivate the API key you used in the example you sent and create a new one.
