just checked on the weewx site to see if my weather station is listed, unfortunately not, shame, mine looks to be locked to wunderground.

Well that isn't exactly true. There are add-on drivers that have been written for WeeWx. For your station there are actually two different drivers that would work. One is called the ObserverIP driver and the other is called the Interceptor driver. These two drivers actually work very differently in how they go about getting the data. There are pros and cons of each method. This topic should really be taken over to the Ambient Weather and Fine Offset clone subforum.

HOORAY!!!


Rapidfire - Working
New Current Conditions box with all Live data - fits on screen
Webcam - showing up (a bit squeezed because of square aspect ratio)
Metric units working - still need decimals

Still missing:
  • decimals for live data and summary
  • graphs still show in whole digits..needs decimals
  • Yearly and Custom Mode not available
  • Still a lot of wasted white space that looks bad
  • Soil moisture, temp and Leaf wetness

Also it would be nice to have custom units....like Fahrenheit for temperature and hPa for pressure.

What did I miss? ....yes I know being able to edit and delete bad data...but that is future stuff along with a whole lot more.

Thank You WU Team! Nice progress. Keep up the good work.

Yes Mapantz. That’s a bit better. Noticed I was finally getting some real time updating. I wouldn’t say Rapid-Fire but at least the page wasn’t static either.

Rapid-Fire is working just fine for me. About 5 seconds give or take.

Problems I still see:
Invalid date/time in the table
Misaligned text: titles should be vertically aligned with their logo or circle (visual problem, but still annoying)
Get rid of unused boxes (webcam, solar, and/or uv)

Last week I noticed that my WU PWS was not updating on my phone.  Got around to investigating this weekend and see that my account is GONE :mad: Reading around I see there were a number of changes and perhaps my account didn't migrate.  What's the deal?

Sorry if I am posing a question answered somewhere in the prior 82 pages...  I've emailed WU support a few days ago  ](*,) but have not received a response.  Seeking alternative solutions for my PWS submissions, unless there's a light at the end of this WU tunnel.

Thanks,
Atreides

It has been said by other users that your account may have been migrated using an old email of yours. So try to log in with an old email address...Hopefully you remember that password and if not hopefully you still have access to that old email account to send a password reset.

OK, credit where credit is due...this is an improvement.  I did my own "customization" using uBlock Origin to get rid of the now-redundant kindergarten graphics and I have a usable page again.  It still needs some tweaking but yay.  Forward progress.

I like that! Rather than having to use uBlock it would be nice if we could choose to turn these horrendous kindergarten graphics boxes off from the interface. They wouldn't bother me so much if they didn't have so much wasted space in them. But that doesn't mean make the content in them bigger...it means just cutting down on the wasted space and making those boxes smaller.

Thanks WU team!

@Galfert - thanks for that.  Had seen the same and tried using my original email account from 2012.  Didn't work.  Then I looked at my emails from then and I see that there was yet another email I used from Jan 2014-Nov 2016; that worked  ](*,)  Now to assess the damage...

Since this topic has consumed 82 pages of entries, it's become unwieldly so I'm locking this particular topic.
Please use new topics in this board for future feedback about specific issues with wunderground.com.

Please take a look at this post for additional info.

Thanks!
