2 questions on WU
« on: January 07, 2018, 08:47:33 AM »
http://www.pennlake.us/

So the WU Radar and Satellite images have not changed in days weeks months?? My 2 questions: Where are the links located (what script) for those two images, I looked and just can't remember or find. Number 2; what alternative is available to replace the WU Radar and Satellite images? I see a lot of people have the same issue (didn't change or did not realize the maps are not working)  I have and I would really like to get away from WU. I saw something about HaniS but that also does not seem to be working. 
For now I would really just like to change the WU maps to pictures of ice cubes, ll.

Thanks for any help,

yamiacaveman

My FRONT map has not changed since Jan 3. I do not believe it has changed on WU either.

Don't know what to say anymore.

:lol: The page on this forum should no longer be titled 'Weather Underground'. It should honestly be titled 'It's not you, it's WU'.  :lol:

So, rather than give false information, I did find the code in the index.php file and removed it.

My site loads about 8 seconds faster without it.

Please, if anyone finds an alternative, can you please post the code here, (anything other than the WU stuff).

This particular WU radar still works for me.


Also the 2nd home page using modified AltDashboard 6.81 at http://stillwaterweather.com/wx/2ndhome.php

Thanks for the reply Bunty!

I think I would like to steer clear of WU for a while, but would still like to find another map source. On the other hand, I like the maps up front but I do have a tab for weather maps.
There is also the Storm prediction map that is now closer to the top of the page and is visible when the page loads. Ilm almost thinking that's all I need, but still open for suggestions.
