Allow the showing of Favorites in the top bar.
In the previous version, I could show the current conditions icon, city name, and current temperature for my "favorite cities". This was very helpful and was is one of my favorite features.
I still need to digest the rest of the new features before I comment.
Is it possible to have the links back on the top of the page? (Favorites, recently visited etc)
The list of Favorites takes too many clicks to move from one to the other. No showing coditions of Favorites at top and ability to look at the current ....
I can no longer look at weather forecasts of my favorite cities.
Before my favorites were at the top of the page and I could quickly get back. Now if I hit back I don't always get where I want to be.
I used to be able to check the radar and go right to my homeweather page.
Where is it?
google chrome "formbox" extension hides available selections.
Where are they in a bar (for current conditions) and also the pulldown for the map??
The favorites bar used to show up above the Wundermap, giving you a quick link back to the forecast/conditions page. The new map does not have this at the top; there is enough white space at the bottom to add the favorites bar back in.
Currently, when I am on the new Wundermap there is no way out of it except the browser back button...

I would also like to be able to see my favorites at the top? In the Features section of Google Play WU has listed the following as a key feature: "List view of saved Favorite Locations and Recent Searches".
I would like to be able to see my favorites at the top, is this not possible anymore?
Thanks for following up.
I wonder what others think about whether the forecast page should open in the same tab/window as the map or if it should open in a new one. Please weigh in.
The map can take a while to load so I'm hesitent to open the new page in the same tab. Also, your location is reset when you navigate away and then use the back button to return to the map. However, if we open in the same window, users who are particular about wanting in a new tab can always use the "open in new tab" option in their browser.
That's a nice addition - it does save the additional interim unneeded page load from before. Although it should open in the same window/tab, not launch a new one.
If I had my druthers I'd still like to see (clickable) favorite cities listed horizontally - without current condition icons, temperature, state or country info - in a small font between the new favorites "star" and the "help" button.
But this is definitely a step in the right direction. Thanks for the improvements.
While we don't have a single click from the WunderMap to the conditions/forecast page, we just added a link within the new WunderMap favorites menu to the Beta version. It's the link labeled "Details"
I agree that clicking on the favorites to see the Wundermap for my favorites is nice, but I would like a single click to get back to my favorites forecasts ... the favorites bar would be perfect, or another star like you've got for the Wundermap of favorites but that takes me back to the forecast. One of the things that's kept me with wunderground.com for years is the easy navigation to get to what I want. I look forward to being able to get back to my forecasts as easily as I can get to the Wundermap!
Clicking to favorites on the Wundermap is nice, but what I was really looking for was the Favorites bar (or equivalent) that would allow me to click back to the regular forecast page for any of my favorites. Single click from Wundermap to forecast.
It still takes 2 clicks (Wunderground logo in upper left corner, then clicking on a city in the favorites bar) to go from Wundermap to forecast.
We've added a favorites menu to the WunderMap (Beta). Please check it out and tell us what you think!
(it's the star button next to the location search bar)
At least have a separate pull down list for the Favorites, rather than having to delete current location in the search window, click on the map (so the search window returns to default) then click on the search window and select the Favorite..... too many clicks just to change favorites....
I really miss having a favorite cities bar across the top of the Wundermap that shows city name, weather icon & temp for each city in my list. I also miss being able to click on the city name to get weather info for that specific city. Right now it seems to take forever to get to wunderground.com by clicking the link in the upper left hand corner above the Wundermap. Once you get there, it only takes you to your #1 favorite city. Please restore this function ASAP! As Joanie Mitchell sings, "you don't know what you've got 'til it's gone."
Favorite locations bar is a must for my navigation. Not a "cool flyover" animation, just a simple bar like appears on the main page. KISS (keep it simple, stupid).
I'll not be renewing my membership later this month if simple usability isn't returned.
I agree having all the info from the classic edition is needed, however, is needs to be tied to the old style map, i.e. a wx synopsis view.
Please put this feathre back!!
