    Talking Enhanced Weather Links for Web browser

    O.K. I've been playing around with CF web browser since my weather button stopped working this morning (not CF fault, weather stations getting bombarded with threat of more rain/snow/ice today). I always liked the www.Wunderground.com animated US maps for temperature, Radar, IR Satellite, Fronts, and their local NEXRAD flash products. But when I first tried loading their pages into CF, the pages were too large and cluttered. I have since figured out how to load just the maps without the ads, additional links, or controls. Then I had to figure out where to put them. Here's a quick tutorial:

    Go to your centrafuse system directory (C:\Program Files\fluxmedia\centrafuse\system on most installs). Find webfavorites.mpl and double click to open it. Add the following links and save. When you next run CF go to Main:Web:favorites and check them out. Enjoy!

    Gizmo: Great work... As for the renaming... Its already in place.. Enter favorites manager and click "add favorite", while on a current webpage. The keyboard dialog pops up and by default it displays the current URL. You can rename it to anything you want, thats why the keyboard pops up. That is why the url is shown twice in the mpl file with a pipe delimeter. One side is the url and the other is whatever name you want to give it.
