I want to present a Wunderground.com weather widget in an HTML Module, and  I want to customize that widget with the weather based on the user profile postal code.  I found this documentation about DNN tokens, which sounds exactly like what I need.

Here's the weather widget un-modified:
<span style="display: block !important; width: 320px; text-align: center; font-family: sans-serif; font-size: 12px;"><a href="http://www.wunderground.com/cgi-bin/findweather/getForecast?query=zmw:28202.1.99999&bannertypeclick=wu_clean2day" title="Charlotte, North Carolina Weather Forecast" target="_blank"><img src="http://weathersticker.wunderground.com/weathersticker/cgi-bin/banner/ban/wxBanner?bannertype=wu_clean2day_cond&airportcode=KCLT&ForcedCity=Charlotte&ForcedState=NC&zip=28202&language=EN" alt="Find more about Weather in Charlotte, NC" width="300" /></a><br><a href="http://www.wunderground.com/cgi-bin/findweather/getForecast?query=zmw:28202.1.99999&bannertypeclick=wu_clean2day" title="Get latest Weather Forecast updates" style="font-family: sans-serif; font-size: 12px" target="_blank">Click for weather forecast</a></span>

Here's my attempt to use the [profile:postalcode] token in my HTML Module:
<span style="display: block !important; width: 320px; text-align: center; font-family: sans-serif; font-size: 12px;"><a href="http://www.wunderground.com/cgi-bin/findweather/getForecast?query=zmw:[profile:postalcode].1.99999&bannertypeclick=wu_clean2day" title="[profile:postalcode] - Weather Forecast" target="_blank"><img src="http://weathersticker.wunderground.com/weathersticker/cgi-bin/banner/ban/wxBanner?bannertype=wu_clean2day_cond&zip=[profile:postalcode]&language=EN" alt="Find more about Weather in [profile:postalcode]" width="300" /></a><br><a href="http://www.wunderground.com/cgi-bin/findweather/getForecast?query=zmw:[profile:postalcode].1.99999&bannertypeclick=wu_clean2day" title="Get latest Weather Forecast updates" style="font-family: sans-serif; font-size: 12px" target="_blank">Click for weather forecast</a></span>

Using the [profile:postalcode] token causes the Wunderground module/widget to break.

Any suggestions for replacing the zip code in the widget code, with the DNN user profile postal code?

did you enable "replace tokens" in HTML module settings?

Thanks Sebastian. I actually just found that documentation here: http://my-tokens.avatar-soft.ro/home/... after I bumped.

This is what ended up working:
