Why weather is not loading?

Please make sure you have entered an OpenWeatherMap API key to WordPress admin under ‘Settings’ ‘API Settings’ and save it.

Why should I use my own API Key?

We recommend using your API key from OpenWeatherMap (weather data provider), as it will improve the overall performance of our plugin, due to a better connection with the OpenWeatherMap.org website.

OpenWeatherMap API key is added but the weather is still not loading?

The API key may require a few hours to activate. If you have recently signed up or created the API key, please be patient and try again later.

I needed "Queenstown, Maryland" but could only get Queenstown Minnasota. I was able to locate the next city over to get the job done. Loved the styling overrides.

There's a free weather plugin OWM that does way more than this one. I bought the pro version and it doesn't include a map or an extended day / hourly forecast. Couldn't find any plugin that shows air pollution or quality. I just feel that a pro plugin should offer more than a free one, but the plugin does work well and I did use it successfully for the project.
