I am new and could use help. I have a location on my list but cannot add. When I type in id tells me to type in path. Location is Holden, Missouri, United States. Your help is greatly appreciated. Bye the bye, this weather on my desktop is great. TY

Hi David!

I would start at the following location: viewtopic.php?f=6&t=22348#p57617 in the "News" section where adding a link for a location can be done by oneself (for most locations):

http://yowindow.com/add_location.php

There you can type the name of a location and choose one from the list you are getting while typing.
For most locations that's enough -just click "Submit" and that's enough.

For some cases you have to navigate to yr.no, the norwegian met-office, search for your location and - when found - insert the link (in this case "http://www.yr.no/place/United_States/Missouri/Holden/") to the input field "yr.no path".

I have done this already for Holden (see screenshot below), but for your next location you can try it yourself.

(you still can add a request for a location here following the rules: viewtopic.php?f=24&t=991)
