Check the text selector in the forecast variables on the template page

If you can incorporate that into a twitter string then should go?

Thanks Matt, Much appreciated. I might be missing something but i can manage to get wind, temp etc to transmit but i can't get a forecast up. What would you put in the text?, that is, what is the formula entered .

Thanks in advance !

[forecast-text]

MB must be connected direct to Davis, MBPro via RF won't do it.

Of course ! The direct connection had escaped me! At least I had the right code. Thanks Matt !
