Mine's in the link. If you happen to be viewing websites on a portrait oriented (rotated) monitor you will need to scroll.

I canít claim to be very creative as basically I just used one of the templates that came with VWS and filled in the blanks. The few locals that visit are mainly interested in the weather extremes and rain data so I have those cells front and center. Iím playing with a new camera and for now the image is a little large and over powering. Iíll decrease that after Iím finished playing with it so it displays better on smaller monitors. Trying to keep it simple.

Mine also started out as a few of the VWS templates. I'll have dig up some old screen shots to show how it has progressed.

Depending on weather station (must work with software) certain 3rd party software's have pre-made templates compatible with software like Cumulus & WD.
Cumulus software has its own standard templates.  As mentioned the php Saratoga templates looks professional and uses ajax for live updates which is not included with the standard Cumulus templates.

Other pre-made templates made by individuals like Jachym may be another option.

 :grin: Yes, I am at the finishing line, just checked everything and it seems working. The last thing I need to sort out is updating the database with new data, which is something I need help with and Ive asked about it here on the forum. I need help from somebody as to how to configure WD/cumulus, it shouldnt be difficult and if I get this sorted out I can send alpha version to my first testers  8-)

Maybe this for Cumulus or for WeatherDisplay.

The menu you see on the links are for region 'europe'.  There are some extra and replacement pages  for the regions 'america' and 'canada'. It is a pity that for the 'other' region there are far less pages.

Using the yellow box on top you can see the different versions for everyone of the 11 supported weather-programs. Also there are links to go to the 'america' and 'canada' versions of the template.

Yes it is big, but is has a Wiki and a support page

Current version is 2.6g
The version at the two links is stable version 2.7beta which will be officialy out at July, 1 this year.

I'll throw my site into the mix.  It was built using asp.net and backed by a database I have a Windows service upload to.  I am in the process of converting it to MVC and I hope to redesign it a bit.

Wow, really nice, I like it and it definately has a lot of information. Really good job, must have taken you quite some time to do as well. Keep up the good work!

HA...since I started this top a long time ago, I figured I'd re-post in it.  I no longer have the "self built" site I started the thread with but I have recently put together this one now.

Anyone else in this thread change their's up during the past year?

I guess you could say I changed mine too, my original site is now completely discontinued and I transformed it into Meteotemplate. The DEMO actually uses data from my own station so it is a replacement for the original. Looking at the code now there is maybe about 0.5% from the original, lot of new stuff and since this is how I learn PHP, I discovered much more efficient and new ways of doing things so replaced most of the original code too even though some pages look the same on the outside.

LOL...When I saw your new site in a different post, I almost suggested you post it here...then I realized you had started this thread.

The only big change to my page is the addition of the "SUMMARY FOR YESTERDAY" under my almanac.

The attached example is from a particularly warm day about two weeks ago (highlights were added for a Facebook post).

That's a really nice addition.  I'm trying to find an alternative way to get local warnings/advisories and such as I'm not liking the frame solution I'm currently using with the atom-advisory script.  I know there's a way to use RSS, and someone showed me how, but for the life of me, I cannot find that information.

That's really cool. I just used the Saratoga template dashboard and ported it to "bootstrap" for mobile. Ran out of time to work on it. It wasn't that hard.  Would be nice to see a "responsive" template that works in a page.  Another day and I could finish it, but it's spring and I don't have time... I'm a novice, but it wasn't that hard...  www.crowderfarm.com

I just came back to this, Adobe Flash is dead, your local radar screen won't work on anything apple, or Windows 10 pc's unless you break the rules... Adobe even says it's dead, NWS is pulling away from it, and they are slower then MS... Firefox is dead to these scripts, without jumping thru hoops.  Actually the only one that works is Chrome, if you install Flash, which is not recommended by the current owners of the trademark..
 
Just saying...

Edited to add the second paragraph...

Very nice, it is always great to see new ideas. I really like it, the only thing I would maybe consider is the font-size. To me it looks a bit like if I zoomed the page, maybe decreasing font-size of certain sections would also allow not having to scroll that much. Especially in the menu. But either way, good job  =D> =D> =D>

Thanks for the suggestion. The font size has always been a pain for me to keep (failing eyes). I have modified the CSS a bit, in effort to solve the font size problem.

I know, it was only a suggestion, the menu just seemed way too big for me, but I know that obviously some people might find it a bit difficult to see small font. I actually once got an email from a guy asking if it would be possible to increase the font size of the labels of axes and points in the graphs in my template. So what I did is there is now a parameter in the setup where you can change this and it is then applied globally to all pages. So you can either use the default, or make it smaller/bigger.

It always depends on what you like and also on what is actually on the page.

This is mine, been awhile since I've been on here. I took the Saratoga templates and converted them Bootstrap. Yes the site is simple, but it works on mobile. Neighbors and kids don't use computers anymore. Has to work on a phone/tablet.  I'll clean it up as I get time, but for my purposes it works... :) Sometimes simple is better.
