Missing forecast icons
« on: October 17, 2022, 04:57:47 AM »
In the Belchertown skin for some reason the imgs above the current temp are not loading. Not in the Graphs, Records, et cetera tab. See screenshot.
If I'm right, these are PNG's that are addressed by Aeris forecast (installed).
In /imgs/ the concerned png files are ready to be accessed.
What could be wrong?

thanks,

Bart

Could be that the METAR station is down temporarily?

If your METAR is supplying current weather data, the icon should be working.
The weather status icon should also be present on the left of the temperature on the main page.

In my case, these icons disappears when my METAR goes offline and reappear when the METAR goes back online.

If not, it could be another issue. You may want to check the belchertown github pages for any open or closed issues and see if someone else has had that problem or post your issue for support on the weewx user group.

Just to clarify - is this a new install and the weather icons never showed up or was it working previously and stopped working?

Your question about the METAR setup brings up another interesting question. Is the METAR station chosen by distance from the location info you put in during the initial setup or can you specify a METAR?

My memory is hazy on this maybe someone else can help. Vince is the resident expert on weewx/belchertown issues.

I don't remember activating Metar in either Weewx or Belchertown but I do have Aeris Weather Forecast installed.  I'm going to look for Metar in the Weewx installation.  I do know that those PNGs didn't work from the start.

In /imgs/ the concerned png files are ready to be accessed.

Never heard of that directory.

Belchertown expects them in a 'images' subdirectory under wherever the skin is installed to. That would be /etc/weewx/skins/Belchertown/images or /home/weewx/skins/Belchertown/images, depending on how you installed weewx itself.

Check your webserver logs.  They probably have errors saying what they're looking for.

My mistake. It's just as you rightly say /images/ Too bad a bit I thought we found the error.

So it's where it belongs /etc/weewx/skins/Belchertown/images

Thank you for your keen attention.

Does anyone have an idea? No img or png visible yet. The aforementioned directory https://xxxx.xxx/weewx/belchertown/images/ is called but without mentioning the intended document.

Look at your webserver logs.  They likely show a permission-denied error.
