wxstatus issues
« on: February 15, 2023, 02:59:14 AM »
I'm trying to fix some of the Saratoga stuff in to my site, and for the life of me I can't seem to sort out why it is coming up with these two time/date issues with it.

Weather-Display weather data    NOT Current    465679:56:00    > 0:05:15
01/01/1970 10:00
Weather-Display NOAA report    NOT Current    7568:44:49    > 24:15:00
06/04/2022 09:11

The url to it is https://jimboombaweather.com/tools/wxstatus.php

The issue is caused by a mismatch in expected date formats.  Your testtags.php?sce=view shows
Code: [Select]
$time =  '02:01 AM';    // current time
$date =  '2/16/2023';    // current date
so the date is in M/D/Y format.

In Settings.php, you have
Code: [Select]
$SITE['WDdateMDY'] = false; // for weather software date format of month/day/year.  =false for day/month/year
which expects the date to be in D/M/Y format.
Change that to
Code: [Select]
$SITE['WDdateMDY'] = true; // for weather software date format of month/day/year.  =false for day/month/year
and that will fix the date display.

More troubling is all the missing scripts on your site.. you should upload those to have your site work correctly.

Thanks, I was setting that to what I wanted to see, rather than what your scripts were wanting. I think I outsmarted myself on that one. :)

I'm doing things a bit differently, I'm grabbing bits from your template to work under something totally different, so I'm doing things the hard way. :)

Thanks for your help on this one.

You're absolutely free to 'roll your own' with the scripts/templates.  If you want just a few select functions, you might download the scripts from the scripts page for each script desired.  Not all the scripts have separate downloads as they are template support scripts.  Also, I have https://github.com/ktrue scripts there if you'd rather use the scripts from there instead.
