You do have ajax-dashboard694.php installed. If I go to alt-ajax-dashboard6.php I see the new dashboard.

In your index.php do you have <?php include ("ajax-dashboard6.php"); ?> or is it <?php include ("ajax-dashboard.php"); ?>

Thanks for your replay. To make it simple here is my index.php

Look in 'Settings-weather.php' for '$SITE['ajaxDashboard']' and change accordingly.

You're modifying the template, therefore you MUST change this setting from 'ajax-dashboard.php' to 'ajax-dashboard6.php'.  After all, the dashboard you want to use is 'ajax-dashboard6.php', is it not?

I managed to uninstall and the reinstall the dashboard and got much better results after doing a lot of reading on this forum. However, I still have 3 issues.

1) The fire danger I con will not load. Well I say that, but i does very briefly appear when I refresh the webpage/ After that is stays as seen in the image.

2) I have no clue how I ended up with 2 Donate Buttons. Oddly, the top button is for our hero, Burnsville Weather LIVE. The bottom is set up for me as it should be. Where do I find the code for the top one and how to get rid of it?

3) The Clod Base graphic. as you can see it does show cloud height but I have read up and still can't figure why it will not show the graphic for me?

Hi,

1.  Check your AltAjaxDashboardConfig6.php file for the following:

$FireImage   = 'jpg';          // Set to match the images you have for the Fire Index (jpg, gif, png)

Make sure this is set to jpg. This could explain the disappearance of the icon.

3.  The cloud-base.php file is missing.

Hope this helps,

John

Thanks for your input. I already had it set at JPG.

I added the loud-base.php file but no changes.

I added the loud-base.php file but no changes.
This is from the initial comments in 'ajaxWDwx3.js':
Code: [Select]
SCRIPT DOWNLOADS:                                                            |
|       Cloud base graphic:  http://www.bashewa.com/download-cloud-base.php    |
Was this your source?  Did you upload the backgrounds and refer to their location in 'cloud-base.php'?

When 'cloud-base.php' is properly set up and working, you can enter 'http://(your web site)/cloud-base.php' and see the current graphic.  I can see your 'cloud-base.php?sce=view', but no graphic.

Thanks for your help but you lost me? "upload the back grounds"? Nothing in the Alt Dashboard instructions says anything about that? Or maybe I'm just missing it (could be). I just need a step by step (basic) walk thru to get this to work. Thanks a bunch!

I apologize if this was covered earlier in this thread.. But there are apparently some formatting issues in WD between b81 and the versions that have been released since then.. I bit the bullet and updated to b302 since the WU almanac code in b81 no longer works..

Anyway -- is there an easy way to correct the formatting issue in the dates for the Full Moon and New Moon with Alt Dashboard 6.94?

The 'rdate()' function call for those entries needs to be modified since the formatting changed in versions after b81.  See the 'rdate()' changes here.

Hello,
Here is my solution for that.
Code: [Select]
<tr>
                <td class="data1"><?php langtrans('Full Moon'); ?>:</td>
                <td class="data1" nowrap="nowrap" style="text-align: right;">
                    <?php echo $fullmoondate?>
                </td>
            </tr>
            <tr>
                <td class="data2"><?php langtrans('New Moon'); ?>:</td>
                <td class="data2" nowrap="nowrap" style="text-align: right;">
                    <?php $nnmlen =  strlen($nextnewmoon) - 9?>
                    <?php echo substr($nextnewmoon,20); ?><br />
                   
                </td>
            </tr>
<?php // End Almanac  ?>
Looks like:
VP2 Pro Plus Aktiv, TOA Blitzortung System RED, NOAA WX-Sat, Weather Display

In the older config files for the alt dashboards, it had a spot to put in start and stop months to show the snow area on your dashboard like this..

Code: [Select]
$snowstart = '10';             // Starting month to display snow information (1-12) Default is 11 (0=No Snow)
$snowend   = '3';             // Ending month to stop displaying snow information (1-12) Default is 5 (0=No Snow)


But in version 6.94 config file, it seems its not there anymore. Did this feature turn into manual? If so that's fine.

But in version 6.94 config file, it seems its not there anymore. Did this feature turn into manual? If so that's fine.
The Snow display in version 6.94 is controlled by the AltAjaxDashboardConfig6.php variable '$S3C2', which also controls the display of Tides and Lightning.  The $snowstart and $snowend variables aren't needed.  I think Scott felt that lightning and snow were mutually exclusive, which oddly hasn't been the case so far this Winter.

I don't measure snow because I have no place where the measurements would be reliable due to prevailing winds and terrain.  Because I use a heated rain gauge I have a function that substitutes 'Precip.' for 'Rain' in much of my ajax-dashboard 6.94 during what I have defined as appropriate months.  The dashboard code I've added:
Code: [Select]
//Determine use 'Rain' or 'Precip' based on $heatedRainGauge
$precipSTR = 'Rain';
if ( $heatedRainGauge ) {
for ($i=0; $i<count($winterMonths); $i++) {
if ( $winterMonths[$i] == substr($monthname, 0, 3) ) {
$precipSTR = 'Precip';
break;
}
}
}
and in 'AltAjaxDashboardConfig6.php':
Code: [Select]
$heatedRainGauge = true; // Use Precip instead of Rain during Winter Months - Useful for heated rain gauges.
$winterMonths = array('Nov','Dec','Jan','Feb','Mar'); // Define Winter Months in preferred language
I've also added logic to use 'Snowmelt' where appropriate instead of current or Today's 'Rain' when conditions are '$freezing'.  I can share this if anyone is interested.

When you use '$S3C2' to control the snow display Scott has included appropriate logic to do so:
Code: [Select]
if (($useSNOW) and ($snownow > 0))
    $S3C2 = $S3C2 + 5;  //Snow is on the ground
with
Code: [Select]
<?php if (($S3C2 == 1) or ($S3C2 == 6) or ($S3C2 == 9)) {  //  Show Snow ?>
                <td class="datahead"><?php langtrans('Snow'); ?><sup>3</sup></td>
                            <?php // end $freezing  ---------------------------------------- ?>
and the payoff:
Code: [Select]
<?php if (($S3C2 == 1) or ($S3C2 == 6) or ($S3C2 == 9)) {  //  Show Snow ?>
                        <tr>

Thanks for the info... So I just need to remember to remove the snow section once the snow has stopped falling.

Ok, I finally upgrade my Weather Display to the latest builds from Weather Display.  Because of the changes in the new versions I had to make some changes to the dashboard (all of which are already laid out in this thread).  If you have already made the changes for the date issue, you do NOT need to update. 

Version 6.94 is for Weather Display 10.37R Build 81 or less.  There will be no more updates for that version.

Thanks everyone.
