Alerts on Menubar
« on: November 25, 2021, 08:36:03 PM »
I have added new counties and they show up on the wxadvisory.php but not the sidebar for alerts.  How can I fix this? ](*,)

In Settings.php, you have
Code: [Select]
$SITE['NWSalertsSidebar'] = false; // =true to insert in menubar, =false no insert to menubar
change that to
Code: [Select]
$SITE['NWSalertsSidebar'] = true; // =true to insert in menubar, =false no insert to menubar
to have the alerts shown in your sidebar.

I did have it on, but I turned it off because it wasn't updating to match what I had changed.

Your nws-alerts-config.php shows $noCron=false, which implies you have a cron job running nws-alerts.php at a regular interval and https://ekyrrgweather.com/wxadvisory.php does show an updated timestamp for the alerts, so the gathering process seems to be working.

In nws-alerts-config.php you have
Code: [Select]
## BIG ICONS
$iconLimit     = 0;            // the number of icons to display  0=show all
$addNone       = true;        // true=add NONE foreach location with no alerts        false= don't show any NONE
$shoNone       = true;         // true=show one 'NONE' if no alerts for all location   false=don't show one 'NONE' if no alerts for all location
$useIcons      = 3;            // select number below
//                                0 = don't use icons - the cache file will not be written
//                                1 = sort by alert - duplicate events will be displayed
//                                2 = sort by alert - duplicate events removed
//                                3 = single top alert icon for each location
//                                4 = sort by location - duplicate removed
//                                5 = sort by location - duplicate events will be displayed
and since there are no current alerts for any of your specified zones/counties, a single 'NONE' icon should be displayed in the menubar if you'd enabled it (with $SITE['NWSalertsSidebar'] = true; in Settings.php).

Is that what you meant by 'wasn't updating'?

Also, be aware that the entry in Settings.php
Code: [Select]
$SITE['NWSalertsCodes'] = array(
//  "Santa Cruz Mtns|CAZ512|CAC081|CAC085|CAC087",
    "Bath County|KYZ051|KYC011", ---
   "Breathitt County|KYZ112|KYC025",
    "Bourbon County|KYZ042|KYC017",

   "Rockcastle County|KYZ068|KYC203",
   "Rowan County|KYZ052|KYC205",

);
automatically OVERRIDES the nws-alerts-config.php entry

  "Montgomery County|KYZ050|KYC173",
  "Morgan County|KYZ106|KYC175",
   "Owsley County|KYZ114|KYC189",
  "Powell County|KYZ059|KYC197",
   "Rockcastle County|KYZ068|KYC203",
   "Rowan County|KYZ052|KYC205",
  "Wolfe County|KYZ108|KYC237",
//  "Monterey|CAZ530|CAC053",
//  "South/East Bay|CAZ508|CAC081",
//  "San Mateo Coast|CAZ509|CAC081",
//  "San Francisco|CAZ006|CAC075"
);

When both exist, then the Settings.php entry will be the one used to define/collect the alert data.

I meant that I had added extra counties and they hadn't updated after 12 hours on the menubar to read none.
