New Script to Display NWS Graphical Forecast Maps
« on: December 19, 2012, 08:16:13 AM »
This script was created in order to avoid using an iframe to display as well as to simplify the presentation of NWS Graphical Forecast Maps.  The script can be seen in action here on my site.  Implementation of the script in the Saratoga templates is fairly straightforward and requires no configuration, just the addition of the script to your menu after uploading the page to your site.

The standalone page can be seen here.

Thanks, Jim.  New Year's Eve at midnight will be the true test of the script. :-)

Thanks for the kind words, guys. :D I'm just looking for creative ways to give the group some payback for all the great help and free scripts here.

Thanks, John.  Your site is awesome.  I'm wondering why the 'Today | Tonight | etc.' links are broken on mouseover and onclick?  The source for your Graph Cast page looks OK, but for some reason the page isn't working as designed or on the NWS source site.  I suspect it has to do with your site specific modifications.

Hi Jerry,

On the part you are referring to, I did not change a thing.  Mostly what I modified was I made the script HTML5 compliant for my site. Hmmmm... will look into that.

Edit:  The mouseover and onclick work fine here for me.  I am using Firefox for my browser, if that helps any.

Edit2:  I tried the page in Chrome and the mouseover and onclick are not working there.

Hi Jerry,

I copied the page verbatim into a new blank page and everything works as it should.  I'll look at more closely and see what messed up when I converted it.  Probably something simple I overlooked or forgot. :oops:

Perhaps we should take the attitude the NWS has regarding html standards compliance:  'What's that?'  Just kidding.  The original code contained all unclosed <img...>'s and <br>'s, but cleaned up fairly well with a lot of search and replace in order to make it HTML1.0 Transitional compliant.  Yes, I was using Chrome. :-)

There may be a name space conflict on some servers with the $hour variable that disrupts the script.  The attached revised script, Version 1.1, changes this and all other date variables to $_, e.g. $_hour, in order to avoid potential and real name space conflicts.  I would urge anyone using this script to update their copy.

Gosh this is an old script!  I got the same error on my 'wamp64' localhost server, but not on my web site or my testing server.

You can get the amended code that uses a brute force solution, i.e. 'error_reporting(0);' here on my testing server.

Hey Jerry. I totally forgot I asked about this script back in Oct...lol

I'm still getting the same error with the script you posted

Warning: A non-numeric value encountered in /homepages/8/d252567151/htdocs/wxustempfc.php on line 84

Line 84.... $_year[$i] = date('Y', time('H'+($i*12)));   # Determine Present & Future Year,

Old scripts never die....lol
