FWIW....  I made a mobile device page for my site.  I designed it for an iPhone, but it seems to load fine on other smartphones.  It's just a stripped down, resized site.  Here is the link: http://www.skunkbayweather.com/mobile.htm 

BTW....  It's a lovely day here in the Pacific NorthWet.....  Flood warnings everywhere.... Wind gusts here yesterday to 45... More on the way....  This is going to be about a 5 day parade of an atmospheric stream storms.... :-(

Eww...yea, I saw your QPF a few days ago calling for 12 - 15" of rain over 5 days.  Nasty.  It's in the mid 60's here and not a cloud in the sky.  Tomorrow will be in the 70's.  It's Mardi Gras down here right now and the Mardi Gras stretch looks really nice.

Perfect weather for flashing boobs.  :-P

OK... Just for the record... It doesn't always rain in the Pacific NorthWet.... We had a moment yesterday.... A brief moment....  I had to take my flag down in the morning because we were having gusts to 45....  Here's a 1 minute time lapse....

Back in 2003, I used VWS to create graphics, which I'd send via FTP to my web server, which I used to build my own site... until my weather station broke in 2006. :(

A lot has changed since then, but here's a screen shot!

For some reason, I also liked the little pages that could be made with VWS.  I like what you did there with the "Jenkins Weather Channel" :)


Heck, I started this thread, and don't think I've posted a screenshot.  This is what mine looks like right now, but I keep tinkering with it.  I just can't find something to keep me happy LOL.





...or with the Wunderground widget.  I think I like it better this way.

I'll add mine here as well. I can use HTML and java scripts but not any php scripts. I like checking other sites here too, thanks for posting this. It's always good to lean and see other ideas.

Thanks wxman. I've changed mine up a bit since posting the screenshots above. I think I'm finally to the point that I like.

Steve, do you remember which radar you used there?

Yes, I was just downloading and embedding the remote JPG from a local news station's website. They've all wised up by now and don't allow that. :)

Ours have wised up here. They pretty much all use a variation of the Google or bing maps with their logos on them.  ONE of the Houston channels still have nice radars. I'm using theirs for the regional and national views. Nothing here in New Orleans though.

Interesting that your news media prohibits use of their weather graphics when they are clearly credited with the content.  I have 4 on my site and they all welcome the publicity.  The CBS affiliate is even keeping a legacy graphic that they no longer use up and running for me.  It really is free advertising for them....

They really don't "prohibit" them, they've just changed the way their radars are on their sites.  They use a lot of interactive radars which are very hard, or even impossible to copy the coding at times.  I was thinking about adding a bing radar to my site, but can't find a decent place to copy the code. 

I have the Wundermap on a page on my site which also be used as radar, but don't really care for it other than using it to compare neighboring station data.

Speaking of radar sites, I found one...didn't even know this existed and it's been right under my nose this entire time on Weather Underground.

if you don't know about it, go here, click on your region, and then animate at the upper left.  Then go to the bottom right and click "Image Link".  Boom....that's it.

There's nothing in my neck of the woods as I post this, but it looks like a decent radar shot:

Hi,

you can have a look at my webpage (more for example here http://www.wxforum.net/index.php?topic=24053.0).

I make everything entirely from scratch for exactly the same reason - I want to have all the way I want it :D No templates...

My webpage is completely available in English as well, just switch languages by clicking the english flag on top and you can read more about the page itself and me in the info section

Thx, I am currently working on a completely brand new section related to climate, it will be something absolutely unique which you wont find anywhere and Ive been working on it for couple of months (at night instead of sleeping :D)... I will post a link once it is finished, Im almost there, right now I am testing it. Btw. I am always looking for people who would like to cooperate, this can mean anything from just mutually sharing a link, testing new functions or directly participating in website development :)

I switched things up and based mine off of a Wordpress template. I upload my GR3 radar and forecast daily on there. It's not real fancy and there aren't that many people that check it out, but there are a few dedicated people that enjoy it  8-)

Thank you for the compliment! In my opinion, your website looks MUCH more impressive! You have done a fantastic job with it! You should really give yourself a pat on the back for your accomplished work!  8-)

I really appreciate your comments, thanks a lot. Im currently working on other new features, especially with regards to climate analysis and practical unit conversions... but since I have a full time job and two part time jobs there isnt as much time as I wished I had. Hopefully I will be able to finish it sometime soon.
