2. Enter your city name (you may enter your country name as well, then you ought to choose the capical city)
3. Choose the size of the widget (from 72px)
4. Choose one of the weather design style (color/black/white or custom design)
5. Choose the language. If you want to customize the language file you only have to change the name of the month- and dayname! Easy!

Is there a detailed reference manual coming with the widget?
It is very easy. All you have to know about customizing and setting the widget is written in the manual. But if you need additional information write in the support.

Can I change the weather icon set?
Of course. Search the web, or draw your own icons and overwrite the default iconset. The deafault icon size is 57x57px

Can I change the weather background?
Yes, you can. The deafult height is 230px. You can overwrite it, in the img library

Does the widget slow down my side? How can I prevent this?
The weather forecast of a given location normally doesnt change fastly. I built in a cache in the plugin.
This helps in two things: The server of doesnt have to handle too many quests for weather data and your site should speed up a little bit, because your user will see the cached data!
