Widget not displaying correct data.But YoWindow Desktop does

Post by solorize » Sun Mar 06, 2011 6:18 pm


I wonder if anyone can help me.

I have been using the "YoWindow Widget" for a while, but as of today I noticed
that the data being displayed is incorrect !

I also have "YoWindow 2.0 - Free Desktop Weather" installed
which is displaying the correct data.

Both are pointed to the same yowindow.xml on my server.

YoWindow Widget [screen capture]:
Showing INCORRECT data


YoWindow 2.0 - Free Desktop Weather [screen capture]
Showing CORRECT data


My webpage's HTML Code to display the YoWindow Widget:

Code: Select all

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/strict.dtd">
<meta content="text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1" http-equiv="content-type">
<title>yowindow widget</title>
<style type="text/css">
.style1 {
	font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
	font-size: x-small;
<div align="center"><br>
  <object data="http://swf.yowindow.com/wimo/hpPal/hpPal.swf" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="280" height="194" align="absmiddle">
    <param name="movie" value="http://swf.yowindow.com/wimo/hpPal/hpPal.swf">

    <param name="bgcolor" value="#FFFFFF">
    <param name="flashvars" value="location_id=gn:2633708&location_name=Wokingham Live landscape&current_weather_url=http://www.mrdphotography.co.uk/weather/yowindow.xml&unit_system=metric">
  <span class="style1"><br>

Screen Capture of "YoWindow 2.0 - Free Desktop Weather" - Location / Station Properties


As you can see both the HTML code for my webpage "YoWindow Widget" and the "Weather Station Properties URL"
for the YoWindow 2.0 - Free Desktop Weather, both point to the same URL: http://www.mrdphotography.co.uk/weather/yowindow.xml

So I am not sure why the "YoWindow widget" is not displaying the correct data. When the "YoWindow 2.0 - Free Desktop Weather" is
displaying the corrent data !?

I have the "crossdomain.xml" file located in my webservers ROOT directory. So I don't think that is the problem,
as the YoWindow 2.0 - Free Desktop Weather is displaying the data correctly, therefore must be accessing this
file OK.

Any help would be appreciated, as I can work out why this has suddenly started to show incorrect data
for the Widget.

Marty, Thanks for the Link.

I checked my crossdomain.xml file and already had the domain="*" set correctly in it.

Pasted below is the contents of my crossdomain.xml file:

Code: Select all

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<!DOCTYPE cross-domain-policy SYSTEM "http://www.macromedia.com/xml/dtds/cross-domain-policy.dtd">
	<allow-access-from domain="*" secure="true"/>
I have checked again to day and I am now not even getting YoWindow widget displaying on my site :(

Is there a problem with the YoWindow server?
