My Length of Day Pie chart reverts back to the older style sun icon after about 20 minutes. Were there any settings in the ajax config I may have missed?

You aren't using the new version of ajaxwdwx3.js.  read the READ-ME-1ST.txt file in the archive and you will see how to modify your setup to use it.

I've updated the instructions with some images for the rain graphic setup and the fix for 24 hour format (from Alessandro) on the update clock.  Thanks for the suggestions and tips!

Update:

It appears that you folks like your graphics to be near live so the rain graph not updating was not acceptable!  ](*,)  Thanks to Gerald W, we have a routine to update that graphic automatically too!  You can download the minor update now on my site (see message #1 for the link).  This update is only identified by it's date Version 6.90 - 30-OCT-2013

Hi Scott, is it possible to know which code is changed?
Because i've made some modifications about italian translation.

In particular, i've change those words can not be translated because they have an "enpty" space before.
F.e.: " Illuminated".
In all these cases just put the " " before these words to fix the translation.
These changes must be done on the language-xx.txt file too. ;)

Regards,


Alessandro

There are a few things that do not work, it is the translation of the current conditions. When ajaxWDwx3 kicks in the text is in English.
I have the wrong value of the dew point in the last hour (see attachments). This is also ajaxWDwx3 thing.

Scott,

Everything is working ok for the most part. The only issue I am having is with the previous highs and records.
When you load the page http://lightningweather.com, You can see the correct highs/lows and records.
When the page completes loading and the numbers turn green, the records/yest. temps go completely haywire.
I live just south of you in Iowa. I don't think it was 113 here yesterday. Infact, I know it was raining rather profusely yesterday.. 8-)
I have gone through all of the settings in the ajax-dashboard.php (6 removed), ajaxdashboardconfig6.php and the ajaxWDwx3.js (removed the three in the name to keep my pages current).
Maybe with the new settings on the ajax-dashboard.php it's looking for the .js to have the 3 in it?!? Doubtful since everything else is fine. Wanted your input.

Are you view it with an iPad or iPhone with iOS 7?

If so, try looking at it on windows device using IE, FF or Chrome. Should Look fine. It's a Apple issue, my site does the same thing.

I hope this helps,

Its looking fine to me on my browser but you aren't using the new ajaxWDwx3.js file!!  That might be part of the problem.

Hi Scott,

There is a typo in the last AltAjaxDashboardConfig6.php on line 38.
There is $spc_img that should be $spc_image.

Cheers,

Piet

Piet,

Make sure you are using the newest config and dashboard (dated 26-Oct-2013 or later).  The archive that is online now is correct for both.  It should be $spc_img for both!  There must have been one bad file in one of the previous archives.  Sorry about that!

I had to play with the file create, the file upload, the save buttons, and the OK buttons before I hit upon the magic hidden combination that unlocked the update/upload of this graphic #7.  WD isn't updating it, isn't uploading it, or both.  Sorry I can't offer more concrete assistance with this arcane setup. :-(

You should notice it when you get a good steady rain. That shows the rate of rainfall/hour.  I had it going the last couple of days when I had a rain event. I'll be looking at another rain event on Tuesday and Wednesday.

'Today' (Oggi) rain of 3.60mm should show on the graph, but it isn't.  That's the problem.

Is the raintoday.gif being created in your \wdisplay\webfiles directory at the time interval you selected?

I could get WD to reliably create it, but not upload it.

It's all in the mysterious WD settings for graphic #7, Alessandro.  Keep playing with it.  Also be sure you're pointing at the correct graphic in AltDashboardConfig6.php.  That can also be a problem.  Check the file time of the raintoday.gif on your site with something like FileZilla.  If the file time is up to date but the graphic is still stale, then WD isn't updating the graphic but it's still uploading it.

Ed,

Like Jerry, it also took me some fiddling around in WD to finally get it to hold my settings and upload the data. Can't give you any specific steps - pretty much just trying over and over until it worked.
