I used 'Compare-It!' to bring all the changes from your new version into my old version and I blew right past that line without seeing it! :oops: The error was mine.  My gratuitous post deleted, Curly.

This is a nice script. I added it to my site as well.
http://www.rogerscityweather.com/wxLSRreports.php
There is a storm report still showing from 3/6. Is this a function of NWS or is there some kind of cache that is keeping it?
Do they eventually clear from showing once they get to a certain "age"?

The NWS usually keeps the reports for several days and then the reports will dwindle down to none.
The script does not cache any data as it gets the latest data from the NWS at each page view.
If you click on NWS Local Storm Reports at the top of the page, it will take you to the NWS LSR page.

I did a minor update to the script early this morning to fix the El Paso WFO and to remove unwanted characters from  the Dallas WFO page format.

UPDATED TO A NEW VERSION

Fixed a stray html markup that sometimes appears AND added the choice of a drop down menu for the locations OR a clickable map.
The 2 settings are in the script where you enter your WFO code. Since this is new, the file name has changed from the past version.
This is for the Continental US only.

For the Saratoga Base template:  http://www.weather.ricksturf.com/scripts/wxLSRreports2.zip

Thanks, Curly!  The clickable map is a nice feature that keeps the display interesting especially when there are no LSR's available.  I've modified this new Saratoga templated Local Storm Report to use both the map and the drop down as selection options, which is obviously my preference.  Others may disagree, of course.  In addition I've added the self-downloader in case anyone is interested in my hacked version.

Great job, as usual, Curly. =D>

wxLSRreports2.php typo?
-Check the image map coords code for "Charleston, WV"... abt line 804
should be "href="?i=rlx"...
not
href="?i= er/rlx:-k

ok in 'inc' template, far as I see so far.

The same goes for Raleigh, NC (line 806) and Morehead City, NC (line 807).

Hmmm... decided I didn't really care for
this map...   :-"  (e.g. thumbail)
1


...decided to play with this concept (e.g. thumbnail)   8-[
2


And have this testing (e.g. thumbnail) currently
3

at http://frankfortweather.us/wxLSRreports4.php

Attached is the simple code change, and a few
of #2 various types, as well as #3 you're welcome to, if you choose...

You can photoshop those basic images of course, but the size and dimensions
of the image, and the image content perspective must remain the same,
or the mapping links will be displaced.

Tom Abell has found a map that registers fairly well with the polygonal coordinates and has incorporated it into a modified version.

You can see the template version on my site here and the stand alone here.  Be aware that both the map and the drop down list are active in these versions.

Those of you who are enterprising can use '?sce=view' to acquire the code and R-click on the map then 'save Image as...' to get the map.

Would someone post the template site as the links to the original seems to be broken.

Thank you
