Re: Saratoga Templates with PHP 7

All my sites are now running 7.2.2. I did have to upgrade my JPGraph software from 4.0.1 to 4.2.0 to avoid some errata in error_log. Everything else is ok.

Re: End user feedback on recent website modifications.

Nice work, Tony. You've cut the page load down to 1.5MB and it loads in about 5 seconds on https. A good improvement!!

The 'sweet spot' for page loading is 1 to 3 seconds, with faster being better. Over 10 seconds, and many will abandon the page load.

Re: End user feedback on recent website modifications.

Hi Tony, You have a great design for your page.. congratulations. I get some timings for page loading that match other's experience -- about 10 seconds on https. Using the web developer tools in Firefox, I see that the graph*.php hidden images (under the mouseover icons) each take from 2 to 5 second...

Re: Regional network mesonet-map updated V3.08

It appears to be a JavaScript error from the Google Maps API code. In Firefox it says: TypeError: g.b is undefined js:120:483 trigger https://maps.google.com/maps/api/js:120:483 Tc https://maps.google.com/maps/api/js:50:406 _.J.prototype.bindTo https://maps.google.com/maps/api/js:123:328 _.Uv https:...

Re: wxwuhistory issue

You seem to be running WU-History.php Version 3.1

You might try the 3.1b version (1-Dec-2017) for WU-History-inc.php in this download

Re: WU-forecast.php

Since the API returns something, just not all the things, maybe the shorter version could be detected by

Code: Select all

if ($zerosize < 20000) {
which would spot the ones with reduced data.

Re: Running both v1 and MX

I've been using VirtualVP for years with my vintage Davis Vantage Pro (1) Plus -- it has a pre-green-dot logger. With the newer green-dot loggers, a couple of things happened, and most disabling (for VirtualVP) was the LOOP2 packets which VirtualVP doesn't handle. So.. if you have an old system, Vir...

Re: Weather Underground - Outreach to the PWS Community

Thanks Paul for posting the link. I hope that WU folks don't drown from drinking the firehose of comments coming on their topic at WXforum.net and their Trillo board. It is very refreshing to see them reach out and ask, and respond -- I'm hopeful that WU services (NEXRAD, Maps, API, PWS uploads, Web...

Re: Station Status question

Ummm... posting the unmodified code from my include-wxstatus.php is not helpful. YOU will have to read, understand, and modify the code to make it work on your non-template website. As I said before, that code (unmodified) requires parts from Settings.php, Settings-weather.php (for your PWS weather ...

Generally, with PHP, you learn by doing. Having someone do it for you is not learning. This is a hobby.. enjoy it by learning :)

Re: Station Status question

The wxstatus.php (and include-wxstatus.php) do rely on having the Saratoga template installed for other parts that are used (Settings.php, Settings-weather.php, common.php). The 'guts' of the page are handled in include-wxstatus.php -- you could replace all the $SITE['...'] variable calls with the a...

Re: $Sharedir Error in wxgraphs.php

The current Saratoga template plugin for Cumulus only has wxgraphs.php for the Cumulus V1.x, not for CumulusMX. There is a thread on this forum where Mark Crossley has created scripts for server-based graphs for CumulusMX.. See: http://sandaysoft.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=27&t=13189 And http://s...
