thank you very much WebsterWeather, that did the job :)

i would have 3 more questions  :oops:

!) Lightning Strikes or Snow, i have no senor for snow or lightning, how i could remove it or add something else in it?

2) i get by Station All Time Records strange year (1970) http://www.weer-mauritius.info-mauritius.com/ why this?

3) there is a tag searchouttext (!? not on hand right now, but i will look for it later), how i could add this one?
best regards
stefan

1. Snow is a manual measurement for most all people but in any event, there is currently no option for that spot other then those two.  If anyone comes up with an idea, I'd be happy to add it.

2.  Not sure what you are seeing here.  Can you do a screen capture of exactly what you mean?

3.  Not sure what you mean here either.  I'm not using any searchouttext in this version of the script.

Thanks Scott!

That worked and still tweaking (never ending). I noticed that under the Liquid Precipitation field, the Today: rain field is not updating yet on my live main page we have received 0.29in of rain today. Is this another setting I looked over or is this page using a different testtag I missed.

Scott,

Disregard the previous post I made. I figured it out and realized that I forgot to update the ajaxWDwx.js file to the server.  :oops:

Now I need to figure out how to get the AQI piece working. Great work btw.

Good to hear you got it going!  The AQI part in version 6 is much easier now that it's RSS!  You should have no trouble!

Ok, I tried it. I like it. Thanks Scott
Will have to clean it up a bit.

http://cvweather.org/index.php
Where do the images go. I have images in my root, ajax-images directory and image directory?

By default, it's looking for most images in:  http://cvweather.org/ajax-images/nskc.gif

You can of course change the images directory in the configs.

Scott,
I need help with a few items.
1) no Chandler fire and/or cloud icons.
2) my daylight hrs is ok, but the minutes difference is off. ( The setting is in WD >ctrl panel>Solar Sensor. Lat/Long. I think?)
 
My main issues is the New Test Tags to Add.txt. I've added this to the testtags.txt  three times, but the file is always overwritten back to the old testtags.txt. The last time I closed WD, thinking it couldn't be running to update.
Suggestions?
Thanks
Ed

You should be editing the file testtags.txt in the c:\wdisplay\webfiles directory.  Open the file with notepad.exe and at the bottom of the file, right before:

// end of testtags.txt/testtags.php
?>

Insert the extra tags.


Save the file and exit notepad.  It sounds like you were editing testtags.php.

If it's changing the testtags.txt file in that directory there is a serious problem.  The only version of testtags that should change is the .php version that is created from the testtags.txt.  Has this ever worked before (is this a new install I mean)?  Also is the date format always 72/22???

I've been using the Saratoga templates sice August, they have been working.


date is reverting to 7/22/2010, I save it time stamp changes to today. A few minutes later it back to the 7/22 ver. w/out the new tags. I am using all the latest templates, I upgraded them all when I changed web host.
No testtags.txt is the only file w/the 7/22 date.
Should I exit out of WD, then edit testtags.txt?
I'm doing this on a vnc. maybe I should just delete the testtags.txt & drop in a new (testtags.txt w/ additions)file?
It straightforward, open file, paste in new tags, save & close right?

Hi Scott,

Having a bit of fun getting your script to work on a non template page www.mad-weather.com/ajax6.php and something I have noticed when trying to adapt the CSS is that your text fills the boxes, but mine is either aligned left with a large margin on the right or aligned center. I notice that weer-mauritius.info-mauritius.com does something similar. Not sure where my CSS is getting over ridden as yours looks to be the default.
Any thoughts?
Great looking script that I want to use as my home page when it is all sorted out. Also don't have snow and no lightening detector, although could have done with one last night!! Major electrical storm.

Looks like you're using a bit wider area then the script was written for.  In the script, at the start of each section, look for the <table> commands and adjust the width there to fit your needs.  That will help I think.  Otherwise it's looking real good!  You have a nice site there!

I'll be a bit slow to respond to any questions about the script for a week or so around Christmas, will have a lot of guests so won't have much time on the computer.  I'll be back answering around the 27th!

Happy Holiday and Merry Christmas to everyone.

Scott,

I've always had a problem trying to change the c:/wdisplay/webfiles/testtags.txt file (I had the same problem as ed2kayak). Apparently, at least on my system, WD has that file open, and, therefore, any changes made to it are lost. I have found a 'fix' by editing the c:/wdisplay/testtags.txt file instead. After a few minutes this file is moved into /webfiles/ and all is intact and well.

FWIW...

jgillett, Thank YOU! That worked.. I never searched for another location for the testtags.txt file. I read your post before work this am. Quickly dropped in a edited file in my wdisplay directory. In a few minutes it is moved to the /webfiles sub directory.

Can someone maybe answer my questions. I have upgraded from version 5.

3. Rec* High and Low have wrong temps and dates (I have data since late 2006)

4. Station All Time Highs show 01/01/1970    0.0C 01/01/1970

Many Thanks

just want to throw me on this. Have the same problem with the date.
I do not have two years of data so I thought that was what was wrong when it comes to Rec * High and Low.

Having the same problem here as well. Since switching to WD in Sept I've been unable to get my archive data loaded (not WDs fault), so I'm getting history from WU. It's intermittent - runs along fine for a while, then just gets stuck, etc.
