I use the Saratoga templates for my main site. It is looking for a file - realtime.txt - which was part of the b3107 release, can't find it so is not showing the correct weather info. at any minute. I have searched and cannot find such a file in the current release (b3116) of CumulusMX.

The Brand new default web site (Neil Thomas version and this is great) seems to get its data from the file - websitedata.json. How do I now get a file in the form required by the Saratoga templates from the changed new style output data from CumulusMX? Help please.

My Saratoga URL is https://www.kstwx.net/index.php
My Neil Thomas CUMX site URL is: https://www.kstwx.net/cumx/index.htm

Hi Keith,

I posted the following reply on the Cumulus Support Forum also :)

The Saratoga template uses two main files for weather data:
1) realtime.txt (uploaded by Cumulus/MX at frequent intervals and used by the ajaxCUwx.js JavaScript to update SOME of the weather data)
2) CUtags.php (uploaded at 5 minute intervals by processing the CUtags.txt files into CUtags.php)

The CUtags.php is controlled by the Extra Web Files upload screen.  realtime.txt is a selection in the Internet Settings/Web FTP Settings.

The Saratoga templates do not use the new websitedata.json file, that is only for the new default html templates.
