Adding regional weather to website

I'm creating a website for a local bowling club, and thought that adding weather updates would keep people coming back.
I have had a look at previous discussions on the subject, and found a 'free'site.
I use Frontpage, and W.E. When I tried to inseert the HTML into my page, but when I reurned to the 'normal' page all I got was code, even when viewing through the browser.

can anyone help please?

it won't work if you do that - you must add it in code view.

I did add the code into HTML, but it showed up as code in the correct place, in the normal view!!

Is the weather script definitely HTML?

Yes - can you tell me what you are thinking?
I can't give you the page, as I am experimenting before adding it to my site.

I wondered whether it wasn't being recognised as another language and therefore HTML was interpreting it as just text.

Could you post where the script came from?

The site I am using is click here
which I found through reading a former discussion thread, if anyone knows a better source, I should be grateful to learn about it. I like the lay-out but am not keen on anything that leaads the viewer away from my site, and into the 'trouble'

Hmm... can't see any reason why that wouldn't work. Have you checked that you got it all when you cut and pasted? It could be something as simple as a missing opening bracket.

Copy the code from your site, including the lines before and after, and paste it here and we'll see whether we can spot anything.

(You'll have to put spaces into the address contained in the code to stop the forum changing it into a "click here".)

I was going to suggest that one actually! I put it on my site once and it did work - so I wonder what's going wrong? Sorry not to be able to help as mine is in NOF not Front Page.

It seems risky to me, but here goes!!


<script language="JavaScript"
src=" click here
&BGC=6DB171" >
</script>

I'm sorry, Iput spaces -I think, but got the 'click here' after all I think I am about to give up - It would be apity though.
