Oh I read your post, more than once!  For me it was quite easy to setup.

Rather than immediately trash talk I would first have asked for help.  However I am not the one that can provide help. 
It is an older program and unfortunately very view ongoing users at the moment, but works for me and I enjoy it, especially when there is some very active weather that participants are reporting - tornadoes, floods...

Enjoy,
Paul

Enjoy,

Well Paul apparently you never read my post. I said I can't even set it up. I downloaded the .exe and when you click on that there is a form to fill out. If there is an error in the form you are kicked out and then have to go back but it doesn't tell you what the error was. So at this point it won't even install on my computer. So, tell me how to do it.

It's not my software so unfortunately I'm unable to diagnose the coding side.  This software was written many years ago by a well known HAM radio operator.  Usage has been up and down over the years.  The author had decided he no longer wanted to support the software so I volunteered to run it here on a small server.  That's where it still resides now.  Sorry I can't be of any help, but I've never had a problem with it either.  The only time the login box gave me an error was when I was already logged in.  Once that log in box is filled out, you do not need to fill it out ever again.

Wow, your graph is so nice and smooth and mine is jerky. I have my meteobridge set to upload every minute but boy it seldom works that way.

Hi everybody,

I already posted this on the Meteotemplate forum but I thought I would also put it here as some users may not have acces to the official forum (they should register though. Lot's of good stuff there).

I live in a town where traffic can get nasty a certain time in the week. The visitors of my website www.elspinars.es often visit it in the morning as a one shop stop to get their daily dosis of meteo, but also requested to have some kind of info about the traffic.
That how I came with the trafficAlert block, which is available for download here : www.elspinars.es/dev/dev.php

Concept is very basic : you define some routes, the block check the time it takes to drive that route and if the time is above certain thresold, it displays an alert, with the possibility to display the current traffic on a map :


I tried to make the setup as user-friendly as possible (but may have failed in the attempt).

After entering an optional block heading, the first step is to add an alert :

Then you define your route name and use the map to define your route.
On the map, a left-click define the center and a right click define the starting and ending point.
The page will update the route and the normal time it takes to drive it. You can then use these values to define your thresolds in the alerts.
You can alernatively enter the values manually and click on the Refresh Map button to see how it looks like. 
Then you define your alerts :

For each alert level (Green, Orange, Red), you define the thresold and the message.
You can use tags like %T in your message to display the actual time it takes to drive the route according to Google Maps Directions.
You can also personalize the icon and animate it.
Finally, you can disable an alert level.
When done, click on save, don't forget to add your block on your homepage and you're done.

This is an early version of the block, I would appreciate if you could let me know if you find it useful, if you tried it and if you have any idea on how to improve it.
Next steps will be to allow the users to create their own routes (after registration) and to add notifications in a mobile app on which I am working (also available on my dev page)
You can either comment on this forum post or leave me a message on my contact page

Cheers,

Pol-Brieuc

This is pretty clunky software. First I download the .exe file then up comes a box for me to fill in and then I get a message about something wrong and then I have to back to the .exe and the stupid box comes back up and then I fill it out again and then I get the error message. If you have a product you would the people to use then it has to be usable and yours isn't.
