Is there a tutorial someplace on how to use Tags from Weatherlink?
« on: September 11, 2018, 11:12:34 AM »
I am building an HTML website and I want to use Tags I think. I want to be able access the Davis Weatherlink tags for temperature and other variables for example. I am familiar with HTML but I don't know where to start on this issue. Any guidance would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks for the links. What I specifically need is the HTML code to use the davis tag for example;  <!--outsideTemp--> How would I add this in my HTML? Where does it get the data from? What files need to be uploaded to my website directory so that it can read that information. Thanks again!

I Think I understand now. I create a template file that Weatherlink reads and processes into an .html file that it uploads. Is that correct?

Almost.  in WL you build an .htx file that is essentially compiled into an HTML file.  The .htx has the tags.  Take a peek at this example (BTW, one of my all time favorite implementations of WL tags and other cool code bits).
