WD HTTP Download
« on: August 06, 2023, 09:59:52 PM »
Hi All

Not sure what I may be doing wrong here. I'm trying to download an image from BOM, (Australian weather service) and then upload it to my site. However, it is not working. Attached are my settings.

Many thanks for any help.
Chris

Update. I've tried various images in different formats from BoM but no luck. I have tested with other sites and the program works fine. Seems to be a bom thing.

Hi Chris,
Back in 2021 they did the following:

BOM denying any HTTP requests : https://github.com/ropensci-archive/bomrang/issues/138

Website notification of change : http://reg.bom.gov.au/weather-services/announcements/
