Adding in the weather from an external link

  • 1.  Adding in the weather from an external link

    Posted 11-05-2019 23:51
    Hi, enquiring how do I add in the weather link to the weather icon on the summary page when the page runs.
    Not sure if this function was shifted as it was found on event information previously before Flex started. My current event using this is under the flex system.

    Event name is called USSEC SEA Soy symposium 2019.

    There is no longer an option to put weather on the pages within flex. If I were you, I'd upload an image that "looks" like a weather icon and then link it to a weather.com page that's relevant to your event city.

    We ran into the same issue using our first flex event. As a work around, we created a 'weather' button and linked directly to the destination's weather.com page.

    Place the destination's weather URL of your choice (Weather.com, etc.) behind a line icon or similar graphic that could easily be understood as meaning weather.

    This functionality no longer works, but you can create a button, or use an icon or graphic... and then link your weather URL to the image to make it "clickable".

    Like others have said.,,
    Use the image widget to add an image.
    If you are using weather.com, search by zipcode.
