WU web site. What's the real skinny.
« on: June 11, 2019, 07:38:11 AM »
Bought this Ambient Weather station sos Wifie can keep track of horse barn weather. Since it was reporting via WiFi (120' away from console) I thought it'd be neat idea to share via the Weather Underground  internet site.
Uh huh.
Convoluted &$#@ to get it on and it's sometimes there and often times not. So it seems there's an OLD and a NEW WU? Okay, not good (not all that surprising either) but how do I tell which is the current viable and visible site/page and which is the one I shouldn't be on?

Old (when it's working): also referred to as the Horizon site
http://horizon.wunderground.com/personal-weather-station/dashboard?ID=KFLWINTE111

New:
https://www.wunderground.com/dashboard/pws/KFLWINTE111

The new site has some issues which is why a lot people use the old site when it's up.

Not that the old site does not also have issues...but it's just a matter of what you need out of the site.

I quit worrying about WU. It is not worth the time and stress.
I am also thinking about replacing the WU with the windy.com maps. Just keep a static Fronts map from WU.

You can't phase me-I teach Middle School.
It's not you-It's WU.

Not sure if it makes a difference on uptime, but you can also use this address to get to the old site. Almost the same as the current "new" site, but the word "id" are lowercase. https://www.wunderground.com/personal-weather-station/dashboard?id=KFLWINTE111
