You should just neet to click on the City name then type Melbourne, Australia. If that doesn't work you can always enter the weather.com code for Melbourne, Australia which is ASXX0075.

Hope that helps.

And for reference, the weather.com codes can be found in the URL's on weather.com after you use the search fields to find the city in question.

Hi, I tried to add a City name but it only accepts zip codes. I am not in the united states so i can't put my zip code. Is it possible for you to add the Location change? Thanks

As Nakor suggested, please look up your City Name at weather.com and use the code provided. For example, a search on weather.com's site for Sydney, Australia will bring up a page with the link:

http://www.weather.com/outlook/travel/businesstraveler/local/ASXX0112.

The code marked in bold is the code you would copy and enter into the weather object's field.

Hope that helps.

Hi, I checked out weather.com and I could not find the code for Canadian weather. Is it possible that I can't use your weather widget? Thanks

Canada, is a big place. Try using your city name, followed by your state or country, i.e. Melbourne, Victoria, or Sydney, Australia.

I know I keep saying canadian, but of course I have written city name followed by state or country but it is not possible. Montreal,Canada I even copied Melbourne, Victoria and Sydney, Australia and it always gives me an error message saying Incorrect zip code entered, try again. Thanks for your time

It does appear that you're right, my apologies. The object is not accepting locations in that format.

However, after a cursory search on weather.com I came up with the following link for Montreal, http://www.weather.com/outlook/travel/businesstraveler/local/CAXX0301?from=enhsearch_reg which of course has the weather.com code in the URL (marked in bold).
If you copy that code into the GuideSign Weather object it will display as Saint-Hubert, Canada. Whether that's the right location for you in Montreal or not I don't know but a little further sleuthing on the weather.com website itself could pay off and have you set.

Hope that helps.

Hi, I want to thank you for the information. Saint-Hubert is about 15-20 minutes from where I am so that will do. The code you found will also help with other weather widgets that don't accecpt location names, so again many thanks. I will do some searching again on weather.com to see if I can find other canadian cities around the montreal area. Have a great day. take care.
