Local Radar not working on usa.htm
« on: March 22, 2011, 12:49:07 PM »
For some reason my local radar is not working via weatherunderground.  I assume its a location thing but not sure what I am doing wrong.

Here is my link www.kd0zv.com/weather/usa.htm

Thanks in advance.

Rich,
For whatever reason VWS is not inserting your local radar site into the code.   I dont use usa.htx even when I was using VWS stock templates, as I am "international"

However you can fix your page, if you want to, by doing the following.

Open usa.htx in notepad.
replace this line of text
http://wxex.wunderground.com/data/nids/%5Eforecast_nexrad1%5E19_thumb_t.jpg

with this
http://wxex.wunderground.com/data/nids/DMX19_thumb_t.jpg

Again dont know why its not working, but the above will fix it.

Thanks much that takes care of the thumbnail issue but I think the problem is deeper than that.  When you click it and go to weather underground the image is broken there. Can browse the city and get radar to work but my link is messed up.
