Yahoo Weather Binding not working in OH2

I also tried the yahoo weather binding. But … it ends when starting with the following message in the openhab.log:

2016-09-23 21:15:53.839 [ThingAddedEvent           ] - Thing 'yahooweather:weather:berlin' has been added.

Can anybody help?

Do you have this Thing bound to an Item? If so, is it a Number Item?

I followed this example:

I have rather low knowledge using OH. I also changed the “Text” in the demo.sitemap to “Number” without success.


Based on the error I would have said that Text would have been the right Item type. That is why I asked if it was a Number type.

I’m not sure what is going on.

Any resolution on this as I am also having the same problem. Thanks!

Any idea to solve this error?
Same message here:
