Getting Started work with WCP OpenWeather v.2

We represent you the newest WordPress weather forecast plugin – WCP OpenWeather – based on OpenWeatherMap API and works with free API key for weather data receiving with limitation for this plan, but you can buy any key for paid plans and use it for your purposes. Our plugin allows you to add various widgets and shortcodes with current weather or forecast for your city. In additional, plugin supports different themes: “Default” and “Metro“.

NB! OpenWeatherMap changed conditions of free API ussage without API Key.
Currently, OpenWeatherMap API doesn’t work without API key any more. You need to add free or paid API key in the plugin settings: “WCP OpenWeather” > “Settings” > “API” tab > “API Key” field. You can get API key here.
We do not have any relationship to distribution of OpenWeatherMap API keys.
