Your https://joesweather.info/wxadvisory.php page looks OK as well. BTW, your county names are kind of hidden until you float over them.

I am not 100% sure about this, but I believe that the "atom-top-warning.php" file might control that banner. Maybe Ken can confirm.

According to your https://joesweather.info/atom-top-warning.php?sce=view your county code seems OK.

Code: [Select]
//------------------------------------------------------------------
// begin settings
//------------------------------------------------------------------
*/

//  change $myDefaultZone default(below) to your station's county zone
//  other settings are outlined below, and are optional
$myDefaultZone = 'OHZ070'; // change this to your zone

OHZ070 is what NWS shows for Butler County per https://alerts.weather.gov/cap/wwaatmget.php?x=OHZ070&y=1.

I can't tell what the problem might be, sorry.

Thank you for checking, Greg. Hopefully, Ken can pinpoint it.

The county name issue has been there for years.... don’t know how to correct that either.

Do you have this code in your index.php
Code: [Select]
<div id="main-copy">
   
<?php // insert desired warning box at top of page

  
if(isset($SITE['NWSalertsCodes']) and count($SITE['NWSalertsCodes']) > 0) {
// Add nws-alerts alert box cache file
include_once("nws-alerts-config.php");
include($cacheFileDir.$aboxFileName);
// Insert nws-alerts alert box
echo $alertBox;
?>

<script type="text/javascript" src="nws-alertmap.js"></script>
<?php
  
  } else { 
// use atom scripts of choice
if ($useTopWarning) {
  include_once("atom-top-warning.php");
} else {
 print "      <div class=\"advisoryBox\">\n";
 $_REQUEST['inc'] = 'y';
 $_REQUEST['summary'] = 'Y';
 include_once("atom-advisory.php");
 print "      </div>\n";
}
  }
?>

  If so, then the nws-alerts.php is what creates the displays for the top box, sidebar box and the wxadvisory.php page, and they should be consistent.  The old atom-advisory and atom-top-warning scripts are not used with the Base-USA template when nws-alerts is installed/configured.

When I use ?mu=1 to force nws-alerts to reload on the view-source of your index page, I see

indicating that OZH070 zone is loading correctly.

Looking at nws-alerts-config.php?sce=view shows several things that likely need changing:

$useAlertBox   = false;         // true=use alert box & write data file   false= not using alert box & don't write file
should be
$useAlertBox   = true;         // true=use alert box & write data file   false= not using alert box & don't write file

and
$shoNone       = false;         // true=show one 'NONE' if no alerts for all location   false=don't show one 'NONE' if no alerts for all location
should be
$shoNone       = true;         // true=show one 'NONE' if no alerts for all location   false=don't show one 'NONE' if no alerts for all location

to get the NONE icons to display in the sidebar for no alerts, and for the alertbox text to be created

I do have that code and I made the changes you suggested in the nws-alerts-config.php script.  Thank you!

Can you tell me what I need to do to correct the issue with not being able to see the "External Links" and the "Alerts" in the Navagition pane on the left without hovering over them?

Thanks again,

Joe

Hmmm... In header.php, you have
Code: [Select]
<!--<h1 class="headerTitle">--> which shouldn't be commented out.  It should be
Code: [Select]
<h1 class="headerTitle"> to remove one HTML errata later on the page.

You also seem to be missing a </div> in header.php at the end. 
Code: [Select]
</div>
<!-- end of header -->
Both of those can cause page formatting errors.

In nws-alerts-config.php you have
Code: [Select]
$addNone       = false;        // true=add NONE foreach location with no alerts        false= don't show any NONE
$shoNone       = false;         // true=show one 'NONE' if no alerts for all location   false=don't show one 'NONE' if no alerts for all location
and that should be
Code: [Select]
$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
to show the 'NONE' icons if no alerts are available.
