Subject: Insert Member's Latitude and Longitude
I'm trying to load an iframe for a weather widget and before I get too deep, I was looking into support and the KB to see if there was a variable we could insert into a url string to grab the latitude and longtitude of the member's/visitor's location so that a proper location was obtained for a weather map (in this example).

This is my url string loaded inside the iframe: (currently set for NYC)


embed.windy.com/embed2.htm...Temp=default&radarRange=-1


I see {MEMBERIPCITY} and {MEMBERIPCOUNTRY} are available but this is not helpful for this weather widget (which is the best imho), could you send me a quote or let me know if you plan on including lat and long as a variable in the future? Thanks!

It looks like the IP location system has the option to return latitude and longitude, so I can add {MEMBERIPLATITUDE} and {MEMBERIPLONGITUDE} (live data and applicable to guests as well as members) for $50.

Aside: I came acrossWeatherStack recently which is more flexible than a frame, but also a lot more complex to implement.
