Make sure you tick it to update every minute in #7 setup.

That's the correct configuration, but you must keep pushing buttons until it 'takes'.  Mine took lots of fiddling around before I finally accidentally hit the magic combination.

I've gave an eye around this problem.
So, manual upload works, automatic upload doesn't work :(

Wow, i succeeded  \:D/ \:D/

The problem (i think) was the "Override" button (red intead of green).

Hi guys,
raintoday.gif doesn't reset after midnight  :-(


Now, it updates correctly but it remained with yesterday rain amount.
Any idea?

Alessandro

Make sure your time zone settings are correct. I had the same problem with a different file from WD which turned out to be a TZ I had forgot to reset during a dashboard update.

UPDATE:

After playing around with many ideas and lots of trial and error, I've figured out a way to allow the lightning date and time to update with the rest of the site and display the date in the desired format.  Had to split the date and time out from the current combined testtag and then split the ajax tags into two separate ajax tags too.  It now works (at least in my testing) well enough to release it. 

The new version is 6.91 and is only needed if you have lightning on your site.  If you don't use it, there is no need to jump onto 6.91 right away.  If you do update, only the main php and ajaxWDwx3.js have to be update as the ajax code changed to version 3.06 with this update.

There we a couple other very minor updates in this release to remove the negative sign in places where the red down arrow already shows in front.  I thought that was kinda a double negative thingy!  I've also added the instructions for using the new ajaxWDwx3.js file into the instructions as too many people are not reading the READ-ME-1ST file and they are actually using the stock ajax code instead!

Is there a way to reduce false readings by only having it respond to flashes in fast succession, like how it happens with actual storms? Otherwise, I get a false response every time I use a wall or lamp switch.  In other words, a single response without a quick follow up would not count.

Alessandro,

Check your settings in WD and make sure you are set to reset your records at midnight instead of 9 am.
Sounds like that setting is checked.

That isn't a function of the dashboard, its a function of WD and the sensor.  Sorry.

Did something happen with the sunlight pie chart after DST change?  Mine is now showing "Sunlight
Hours Unavailable", and I noticed Scott's was as well.  Using 6.90 and WD 10.37R-b76.

Thanks,
Rick

The testtags.php variable, $changeinday, goes out of range and reports nonsense values during changes from DST to ST and vice versa.  I've coded my own $changeinday into my menubar.php and ajax-dashboard6.php so it still displays the change in sunlight from yesterday to today.  I've gone overboard since I could easily add tomorrow and yesterday to the mix and also report sunlight hours for them.  John Gillett is also using my code for the sunlight pie without tomorrow's or yesterday's sunlight hours.  In lieu of adding a bunch of changes to that part of your dashboard, you could just wait it out until tomorrow when your sunlight pie will be back.

Thanks Jerry.. I kind of figured it was a one-day thing during the changeover  (My station has only been up since August, so its the first DST change I've gone through.)

One day isn't going to bother me enough to implement code changes.

John,

AZ rebels ;)  Can't say I disagree with you though.. I just got done complaining about walking the dog in the dark in the morning when its been dark at 6:30 AM the past week or two, only to realize that now I'll be doing the same thing in the afternoons at 5:30 for several weeks anyway.

Scott - I'll take those two times, thank you. Better than my current record...   :roll:

Rick - Don't admit this too often, but long ago I lived in NJ for quite some time. Know exactly what you're talking about. Then again, on my last job out here I was on a 4/10 shift (0600-1630). Would leave for work in the dark and get home in the dark during the winter. Not fun...

You better duck and run!  You've also got my code but haven't implemented it. :roll:  Still, I understand why not. :lol:  It does increase the server's work at initial page load of the dashboard.  Besides I think you have other fish to fry at the moment, when you feel like frying fish.

Noticed one issue when viewing my site from work...using IE10....my  SUN/MOON icon, which shows the pie everyplace else, shows the sun. Using Safari, Chrome and Firefox, shows the pie chart.

That's because ie can't display the code correctly.  That is how it is coded to react.
