Windguru forecasts for your website

New version of webmaster forecasts available! This is the recommended method of adding Windguru to your site now. It's very easy... simply copy and paste piece of HTML code to your site and you are done. You are allowed to show forecasts for up to 10 different spots per website (domain). The forecast is based on GFS and NWW3 models.

Get the forecast code here!

If this does not work for you for some reason the previous methods of including forecasts are still available:

Old version...

Linking to Windguru

If you are interested in placing windguru forecasts to your website consider using a simple link to windguru.cz first... It is the easiest way to provide your visitors with forecasts. You can use this link generator to link directly to specific forecasts. Feel free to place links anywhere to your site. I'll be glad if you put a windguru logo nearby (you can use this windguru image to create a smaller logo or icon)

IFRAME or PHP script forecast

If linking to windguru.cz is not exactly what you want, you can include GFS / NWW3 based forecasts directly to your webpage. This service is free, you only need to be registered user. You can use both public or custom spot forecasts. Forecasts look almost the same as on windguru.cz and show up-to 72 hour (3 days) forecasts. Example:

 Spain - Tarifa (GFS 02.11. 06 UTC, NWW3 02.11. 00 UTC)

How it works

First, you configure the forecasts in user settings. After that you can display the forecasts on your webpage by placing them into IFRAME or by using a PHP script. Forecast is now available in these languages: Basque (baq), Bulgarian (bg), Catalan (cat), Czech (cz), Danish (dk), Dutch (nl), English (en), Estonian (ee), Finnish (fi), French (fr), Galician (gl), German (de), Hungarian (hu), Italian (it), Latvian (lv), Lithuanian (lt), Polish (pl), Portuguese (pt), Romanian (ro), Russian (ru), Spanish (es), Swedish (se), Turkish (tr)

Configuring

Go to your user settings - "10) Forecasts for your website". Before you start configuring you need to provide your website URL and email. It's necessary for me to know where the forecasts are used or in case I have to contact you. In the options you can choose variables which will display, wind and temperature units, visible hours and limit maximum length of forecast. You can see a preview right in the settings. Most options are pretty clear, here are some notes:

You can configure up to 10 forecasts. Then you need to decide what method of including the forecast you will use:

IFRAME method

This method is only designed for low traffic websites, if you have many visitors you could easily overload windguru webserver by using IFRAME forecasts. You have been WARNED, if I see your iframe is causing problems I'll take action... The right IFRAME URL is displayed at the configured forecast.

PHP script method

Recommended. You will download and install a special PHP script, this script includes the forecast directly into your PHP page. It's a little more complicated method but still very easy if you have some basic PHP experience. The main advantage of this is that it protects windguru server from overloading. Script caches the forecasts and only contacts windguru.cz when necessary.

Joomla and Wordpress plugins

Chris Davies-Barnard created plugin for Joomla and Wordpress CMS. More info on his website: http://davies-barnard.co.uk/windguru-plugin/
