Don, I ran just your wxStory_inc.php without the template and everything was normal on 15 sites I tested.
Your problem is use withing the template, which I don't use so can't help you with that.
Again, though... it appears your WxStory is running fine.

John, rrrick8,

I have attached two screen captures showing what I am seeing for both Reno and Grand Junction, CO. I see many other sites with similar results. For some reason, some of the sites display in a very wide format.

Like I said above... if you run just the script wxStory_inc.php  it all looks good.
So I believe the script is fine it's just something askew with your placement in the template which I don't use so I can't help you on that one.

Don, as Rick said it seems not to be in Curly's script. I ran my site script and selected Reno and it looks just fine (attached). I was unable to find the problem as well. Sorry.

Your http://www.carsonvalleyweather.com/wxStory_inc.php is fine. All html is clear and correct for all cities, without or with text..
But your wxstory.php has an extra line of code
Code: [Select]
<!-- end of menubar -->

<div id="main-copy">
<pre>
  <table border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" style="width: 700px; margin: 20px auto 0px auto;">
 <tr>
  <td style="text-align:center;"><a href="http://www.weather.gov/rev/" onclick="window.open(this.href,'_blank');return false;" title="Click to view this forecast office" style="text-decoration: none; color: inherit;"><span style="font-size:20px; letter-spacing:2px;"><b><span style="color:#0061AC;">WEATHER STORY</span><br />Reno<br /><span style="font-size:60%; vertical-align: text-top;">Weather Forecast Office</span></b></span></a></td>
 </tr>
</table>

You should find that '<pre>' and remove it. That will take care of the very wide page, which only occurs when there is text below the map. That text will be as wide as the longest line, because of that '<pre>'. You can see that all bottom text is displayed in a monospaced courier font and without line-breaks. 
 
We can not check your php script online, so if you can not find that <pre> , post the script here with the .txt extension.

Wim, you are a genius! =D&gt;  That was the problem. Since I was incorporating this code into my Saratoga template, I had simply taken the code and included the <pre>...</pre> in my wxstory.php and that is what was causing the issue with screen width.

Thank you very much for the assistance. I have included the code section from my wxstory.php that I am now using to include the wxStory_inc.php, for Saratoga template users.

Code: [Select]
<body>
<?php
############################################################################
include("header.php");
############################################################################
include("menubar.php");
############################################################################
?>


<div id="main-copy">
  <?php include("wxStory_inc.php"); ?> 
<><!-- end main-copy -->

<?php
############################################################################
include("footer.php");
############################################################################
# End of Page
############################################################################
?>

I think this script is another casualty of the changes made yesterday by the NWS.  There are no images showing as of today.  Any thoughts on what needs to be changed?

I'd try changing
Code: [Select]
(in_array($wswfo, $hpwxs)) ? $wxsurl =  'http://www.weather.gov/'.$wswfo.'/' : $wxsurl = 'http://www.weather.gov/'.$wswfo.'/weatherstory';
to
Code: [Select]
(in_array($wswfo, $hpwxs)) ? $wxsurl =  'https://www.weather.gov/'.$wswfo.'/' : $wxsurl = 'https://www.weather.gov/'.$wswfo.'/weatherstory';
and make sure you have
Code: [Select]
$useCURL        = true;               // true=get data by cURL method  false=stream data

Thanks, but no joy, Ken.  Still no images.  I tried  to place 'oax' in the https array, but that didn't work either.

Curly's code is more than a bit difficult for me to unwind.  I've given it a shot but now I'm not even seeing new images show up in my '/wscache' directory.

Not every city displays graphics on a regular or daily basis. PSR is a good example. Yesterday there was info about a coming rainstorm and a large graphic to go along with it. Today it says, "Phoenix does not have the Weather Story." Well they do, but when they want. I pushed a lot of green buttons on the map today. Pretty much the same wording along with a lot of other text items below the map.

Worked fine for me two days ago (2/27) but now all I get is the text with a broken image symbol displayed. Just when I need it most as we have the season's largest storm coming-in right now...  ](*,)

It seems that the NWS used to accept query strings without a "?" such as http://www.weather.gov/images/arx/wxstory/Tab2FileL.png e73c9f3d342158b6aa283cb30e80054 but no longer does.  Perhaps Ken and his regex wizardry will be able to come up with a better fix, but this seems to be doing it for me:
replace
Code: [Select]
function GetDataByCurl($url)    {
  global $noted;                                                          // set global

with
function GetDataByCurl($url)    {
  $url = str_replace("png ", "png?", $url);    // added 3/1/18
  global $noted;                                                          // set global
and
Code: [Select]

function getWSBystream($url) {
  global $noted;

with
function getWSBystream($url) {
  $url = str_replace("png ", "png?", $url);        // added 3/1/18
  global $noted;

Jerry  - I notice the map does not change when you select the various green dots. Once I select another location, it always shows the Pocatello, ID section of the map. The wx story and header do change with each different selection. Not sure if it's me or not. I've tried it on Chrome and Firefox and get similar results.

I think it has to do with file permissions, but I haven't solved the problem yet.

Jim's update worked for me, except for the Reno sector. Others appear to be working just fine but not Reno, that still gives me the broken image icon... And, the map shows the correct selection so not sure what the issue is with Jerry's. It could be file permissions as he indicated.

I just tried Reno and it worked fine for me.

As for the overlays on the US map working, are you using wscache as your cache?  I had to go to that to fix something, but I don't remember what the problem was when I did that.  I used to be able to remember things.

The Reno image is working now. I don't know what "wscache" is...

Yes, I see them now. Both of them are loaded with files. I also have another folder named "wsmainimages". It has one file in it named WS_map.png. That same file is also located in the wsimages folder. They appear to be identical.

It's a mystery to me too. I suspect it might be a remnant of an earlier installation although all of the image files have a date of 1/6/2018 which is about the time I installed the Weather story routines. I don't have the original files I downloaded so can't go back to them to see if there was a sub-folder in them.

However, this brings up a question regarding the map of the US which shows the wfo's who participate in the weather story program. Who maintains this image file and how does it get updated when wfo's come on-line or drop-off the program?
