    firstly make sure the widget is at the top of an idle screen
    i just tap and hold the widget till the phone vibrates then drop it. then drag the bottom right hand corner to resize

    Not all widgets allow expansion, the expand view (yellow frame) will appear if you tap and hold the widget for more than 2 secs then release.

    dont move the widget around once youve tapped it

    Crofty the vital information is that you need to grab the grey triangle that's in the corner of one of the yellow boxes, you can barely notice it.

    Thanks for your help guys however i still cant get the accuweather widget to increase in size!

    do you know of any other widgets that should resize so i can give them a go?

    Cheers

    Try and try again. I had the same problem, but after numerous tries I succeeded in resizing the accuweather widget :p

    Resizing is very easy in LauncherPro (just saying).

    finally sorted it

    It seems the key is in the "letting go" of the widget as opposed to long press.

    So,
    Press the widget for 2 seconds then let go without moving it. the yellow grid appears to resize it.

    In conclusion, i am NOT going insane!

    I just had the same issue as you did last spring. The
    trick was to hold then just let go without moving your finger. then resizing is quite easy.

    Thanks for your original post , it really was what I needed.

    Learn something new everyday. But I use Go Launcher Ex. Really easy to re size any widget using this.
