Your Guide to Using the RokWeather Module for Joomla
RokWeather is a highly configurable module that allows you to control the various aspects of its appearance and functions. Not only is this module configurable in the backend, but you can double-click the location from the frontend and change it without having to access the administrator account at all. This is a small, but useful function that users can take advantage of.
Sources: Choose between Yahoo or Wunderground. For Wunderground, you will need to sign up to their API and enter their reference in the API key field: http://www.wunderground.com/
Default Location: Enter a location that will have its weather data displayed by default. For example, the default option is Golden, CO.
Some locations may return as invalid, although available on the respective sources due to limitations in their APIs, not RokWeather.
Location Display Override: This option allows you display weather data for one location whilst displaying a label for another, such as using a nearby city's weather data but displaying the name of your own town.

Default Degree Type: Choose between degree Celsius or Fahrenheit for the default temperature reading.
User interaction: This parameter allows to disable user interaction so they cannot change the location and weather data.
Enable Units Switch: This option allows you to configure whether the Celsius/Fahrenheit switch is displayed.
