Re: Weather34 Webcam Problem

Thanks very much for the explanation. I have a much better understanding now of how the code influences behaviour. It took some experimentation with the image dimensions to get it to fit.

Re: Weather34 Webcam Problem

I corrected the webcamsmall.php & cam.php code to add the alt="weathercam" class="webcam" within the src script boundary. This appears to "force" the image into a 16:9 format instead of its native 4:3 format, thereby stretching the image horizontally. Whereas, if I ...

Re: Weather34 Webcam Problem

Re: Weather34 Webcam Problem

Thanks for the suggestions. I do essentially the same thing with a Python script (adding text etc.,) and upload to my site. I used to do this for WU until it became so unreliable. It seems I have gotten the "only 50 users allowed" when connecting via FTP and then it interferes with communi...

Weather34 Webcam Problem

I've installed the Weather34.com templates as an addition (under "Console") to the Saratoga Templates on my website at: http://www.boulderwx.com. The setup was remarkably easy IMHO. The only problem I am having is with the webcam display. As I recall the php file for the webcam was preconf...

Re: WindowsPC vs RPi: Starting CumulusMX on Reboot

Great suggestion! Many thanks! Easy to set up too. Just need to wait until next Wed when MS pushes another update...or pull the plug.

Re: WindowsPC vs RPi: Starting CumulusMX on Reboot

I use the Task Scheduler to create time lapse videos from stills thruout the day using FFMPG, and was considering that approach. I am worried that I would need to log into the machine for the TAsk scheduler to run...is that not the case? So even if the machine just reboots with no one around to log ...

WindowsPC vs RPi: Starting CumulusMX on Reboot

I have CumulusMX running on both a Raspberry Pi and a Win 7 PC. Because I'm on a domain and the configuration of the Server, windows updates happen from time to time and the system reboots, shutting down CumulusMX until I discover the problem. I thought I'd solve this with a batch script in the star...

Re: WXQUAKES PROBLEM??

Problem solved! Looks like Akamai is just a provider. Unblocking the blocked outgoing requests solved the problem. It's odd that it worked for several days then stopped. Thanks for all the expert help!

Re: WXQUAKES PROBLEM??

Many thanks for the expert diagnosis. I examined the error log but see nothing associated with this problem. My web host does require me to open up outgoing channels, but the only ones I see are associated with AKAMAI so I think those are associated with a webcrawler. I'll contact the support folks ...

WXQUAKES PROBLEM??

I updated my website termplates for boulderwx.com on January 9. One of the most attractive additions IMHO is the earthquake map feature. I had a google maps API key etc., and quickly got it working fine. However since then I've noticed that most of the time the map does not display and What does dis...

Re: $Sharedir Error in wxgraphs.php

Well that explains it! What's odd is I had the graphs displaying 2 days ago and took it for granted it worked with CumulusMX. The website started out with the Cumulus supplied pages, so perhaps that has/had something to do with the appearance of the graphs (briefly).

Re: $Sharedir Error in wxgraphs.php

I found the 1.04 version of wxgraphs and installed it. check fetch times shows wxgraphs is up to date. However going to the page indicates that it is looking for many png files in the ./image directory. I have none of these and thought they were associated with the non-MX version of Cumulus. See bel...

Re: $Sharedir Error in wxgraphs.php

Perhaps I'm downloading the wrong version of the Templates. I downloaded them from https://saratoga-weather.org/wxtemplates/install.php just now to check out the wxgraphs.php file using notepad++. A search within the file did not find any $Sharedir or $Sharedir = '/scripts/' in the file whose latest...
