I really liked the weather mod and see it used in a lot of other boards (non php) that I visit but it no longer works here so I was wondering about removing or making it hidden.

I wouldn't dare try to roll it back without guidance because of the changes that have been made to the various files it affects since it was installed.

I noticed that bots always typed 123456 in the field and at one time wondered if that field could be hidden then if anything was typed in it the registration would be rejected but I figure that would be redundant now that the modified math mod has been installed.

In any case it is useless now unless someone has redone it so at minimum needs to be hidden.

I'm going to start trying to recruit again.

The problem with the Weather MOD is that CNN continues to change the layout of its web pages.  The MOD is designed to screen scrape the data from the CNN web pages, so when the data is moved, it screws up the Weather MOD.  CNN has changed its page layout 3 times since I first installed the Weather MOD.  So far, I have been unable to decode the latest layout and fix the MOD...

Since you have installed several MODs since the Weather MOD was installed, the easiest way to remove it is to remove it manually.  Basically you follow the MOD script instructions backwards to remove a MOD.  Code that says REPLACE WITH would be replaced with the code from the FIND command.  Code that says BEFORE, ADD or AFTER, ADD would simply be removed.  As always, you should save backups of the files that you plan to modify just in case you make a mistake and need to restore them...
