Contact the author of the FWI calculator and I am sure he can help you out.

Hi Jenny, Thanks again for your recent assistance.

Just wanted to add that Graeme creator of FWI Calc has a Beta version out. I've been running it live since he created it and works brilliant, worth a look.

regards
Tony

Hi,
Start by having a look under Help - Internet Options - File Options.
This will explain how the parse tags work plus give you code for a base page layout.
From there you can build using tags listed.
Also Under Graphs, Graph Maker. Play with these and upload the ones you want.

Yell if need more help.

Cheers

Hi again,

In brief you Set up Data Make a web page Parse web page upload webpage.

Setup
I presume you have gone through and set up FWICalc following the Readme Setting up Data. This can take a couple of days to get right especially the Cure Table. There is a bit of reading there but worth following it down. It took me a week before I was happy with what it was reporting.
It took me another week playing to sort out a web page. So yes it is a bit of work, but worth it.

Under FWI setup, bottom left.
If using Cumulus your Data File Type and Location is your realtime.txt. So select that and set the path. I will add a screenshot down bottom as readme is different.
FWICalc will auto update from there once a day.

Web Page
As far as the web page is concerned. It is up to you to build one.
In the readme, Under Internet Options File Options the author has added an example which is a good starting point.
So open wxnewpage.php
Rename this to say wxfwicalc.php and save.
Slot the example in between:
Code: [Select]
<div id="main-copy">

<h1><?php langtrans('Fire Weather Index'); ?></h1>
<p>The following is FWI Data for the ^fwistation^.</p>
<p>Last Updated: ^fwitime^</p>
^fwitable^   
   
</div><!-- end main-copy -->
Save this a second time and call it wxfwicalcT.php as the tags are parsed much the same as the Cumulus tags are in the standard version.

Parse web Page
Now we set up to parse the file.
In readme this is under Internet Options File Options.
In FWICalculator click on Web Files.
Under Input files put the path to your wxfwicalcT.php something like
C:\cumulus\fwi\wxfwicalcT.php
On the other side under output files:
C:\cumulus\fwi\wxfwicalc.php

Click on Parse Now and that will replace the tags with your data.

Upload web page
Set up the FTP side of things as in the Readme Internet Options Dialup / FTP Setup.
Then,
Follow the readme to process this file and upload Internet Options FTP File List Select.
In this scenario under FTP File List Select you will have something like:
C:\cumulus\fwi\wxfwicalc.php
And under Server path:
public_html/wxfwicalc.php

To do a manual upload: Under Internet select Start FTP(Send all)
If FTP settings are correct, this will send this page up to your server.
Open it and see what you have.

I have not tested the above in the Saratoga template but I have no doubt it will stick out to the right :)

You can preen that back by unticking some of the columns FWI Setup tab Application Settings. On the left Front page Chart Titles and under Show. Untick what you do not want.
Here is the above without any styling.
http://wairoa.net/weather/fwi/fwi_test.php

This gives you a brief outline as to how fwicalc works.
It is up to you to build your web page adding the fwi tags for parsing and displaying.
The full list of tags are in the readme. Get creative :)

Create some graphs for uploading. There is 2 full pages in the readme covering this. Then upload. Add links to these in your web page. Here are 2 examples of what can be done. This is a standalone page.
http://wairoa.net/weather/fwi/fire_index.php
This is the same page incorporated into the Saratoga template.
http://wairoaweather.net/wxfwi.php

Cheers and Good Luck
Jenny

Hi,
1. I'm new to this forum and I'm not an English native speaker so please, be tolerant.
2. Since November 2012 I'm running my Fine Offset WH 2080 weather station and my weather web page: http://www.pogoda-niesiolowice.kaszuby.pl/ .
Some time ago I decided to add the "Fire danger" warning to my web site and I started to use :CBI calculation" script: http://sandaysoft.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=14&t=2789 (temporarily using ONLY CURRENT DATA for calculation). Result you can see on my web page, on the sidebar.
3. Now it's time to go further so I'd like to play with "FWI_calc". I found this topic and an "instruction" given by Jenny. It seems to be very clear and I hoped to go in an easy way.
4. Unfortunately "FWI_calc" is NOT running on my computer. Any time I try tu run it, an error message appears (see attachment). Has someone any idea why?
I'm running "Cumulus" software on "HP-5720" terminal with WindowsXP Service Pack OS 3 installed on 320GB HDD.
The day when I have learned something is not the lost one.

Problem has been solved and I must say sorry for those starting (I hope) to think about my problem.  It seems to me that I wrote my previous post before starting to think. It was just enough to install "FWI_calc" NOT to the "C:\FWI\" folder (that is being proposed by installer by default), but to "C:\Program Files\FWI\" folder (my OS is WinXP).
Finally, an application is running and I hope to set is up shortly.

Hi again,
It has almost been done: http://www.pogoda-niesiolowice.kaszuby.pl/firedangerrisk.php  :grin:
It was much less painful I expected it to be. Also I've learned a lot (following Polish proverb: Before, Iknew that they era playing. Now I know in wchat church).
Many, many thanks to Jenny ang Graeme. All the help I got from them was priceless.

Thanks for the link :-)

I installed today this latest version. It is a pity that there will be no follow-up. I have this version (v.10.5.2.109) with Windows 7 Professional and works fine. But in the future with Windows 10 updates I'm not sure. Anyway that's not for now.

Version 10.5.2.109 of the FWI Calc software works well (without problem) in Windows 10... ;)

I am in the process of creating a standalone Fire Weather Index for the environment of Cumulus. Currently I am in the process of public trial and the software can be downloaded here. The science behind is can be found here and here and the participating sites can be found here. If you install and use it, please supply me with the link.

Only for Cumulus users!
