Alt Dashboard Question
« on: July 18, 2020, 08:44:12 PM »
I finally decided to try out the Alt-Dashboard and believe I have everything working except the Fire Weather and Air Quality icons. I want to use the jpg versions, but it is set up for png files. I do not see any png files in the download. In the instructions there is mention of ajaxWDwx-settings.js, I do not see that file in the download or currently in my website. When I load my page, the fire icon flashes on and then goes away and the air quality icon is not the one I want. I would like the jpg version.

I did not find a spot to change the file type in altajaxDashboardConfig6.php file. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I believe I have solved the issue. made some changes in "get-aqi-rss.php" to the jpg icons I wanted and changed fireimage to .jpg  in the alt ajax config file and it appears to be working.

I was intimidated at first, but I worked through it. Great script, glad you made it available to all.

Thanks, John

Hi Scott,

Yes, is nice to see you here. Still using your script for my dashboard with Ken's help over the last couple of years.

I see that your site is not up and running.

Have a good and safe one with all that is happening.

Aloha,

Hi, Scott!

Indeed great to see you back! I am using your dashboard now for i believe a year or 8, recently i had it updated to the latest version and still working like a charm with some minor PHP 7.3 adaptions...

Glad to see yours is up and running still!  I still get a request once in a blue moon from someone, that's always cool!  Ken is very kind to keep my old script up on his site and making minor fixes to keep it running! Hope you can keep it going for many more years!

Stan,

Nice to hear yours is going too!  I wish I was experiencing the nice settings you guys get on the island there!  I'd be happily retired then!
