Re: Cumulus Realtime.txt Dashboard Template

Brian, you have selected "last known bearing" now, and since that is what everyone else seems to agree is more logical, stick with that, but if I may I will answer a point from earlier in the thread. Certainly in a calm a wind vane remains in its previous position because there is no wind ...

Re: how can I edit wrong wind gust value?

Does this FAQ help you to change your wrong gust extreme?
http://wiki.sandaysoft.com/a/FAQ#How_do_I_correct_my_all-time_.28or_monthly_all-time.29_records.3F
It relates to all-time, but in Cumulus 1 editors are also available in the edit menu for the other extremes.

Re: New install, no gauges displayed

Mark beat me to it. I have only one additional comment.
I see that an obsolete unsupported version (1.11.1) of jQuery is being called (and failing to load), is there any reason why you don't use the current jQuery (3.2.1)?

METAR on Cumulus Realtime.txt Dashboard Template

metar scripts found on this forum Hi Brian. If you look at what you have posted on http://www.wxforum.net/index.php?topic=%20...%20#msg336608 , the term "Mostly Cloudy" appears exactly as that, a full 3 times for each aerodrome, and that is something that I dislike about Ken's design (sor...

My spike setting has been 20 degrees Celsius, and I don't recall any problems ever with that figure in half a decade.

Re: Decoding METARS

If anyone is interested, I have written in PHP 7 a METAR decoding script that takes into account all the 2017 changes Since I wrote that quote, I changed my decoder to use "pow(base, value)" instead of "base ** value", and changed all my array declarations to use "x = array...

Re: Alphanumeric Password Format

If you look up the official URL specification both '+' and '=' each have a specific defined meaning as separators and are therefore not a permitted character elsewhere like in your password. Consequently, the problem is simply in the protocol for transport between Cumulus and WU, not either end's fa...

Re: off-line data

From the Wiki: The main configuration file is Cumulus.ini and located in the directory in which you installed Cumulus.exe. If you rename the executable file to say Cumulus1.exe, then the configuration file takes that name i.e. Cumulus1.ini. For Cumulus MX, both file-names must start with a capital l...

"Blaming others" - a bit unfair, you have chosen to use Cumulus, it was not designed and written specifically for you, you have to accept that it might not work in the way you think it should. In both this thread and the previous you were advised that you could alter the contents of your f...

Re: Rain - "This Year" issue

You have not recorded in your forum profile the type of weather station you use, but if it is of the Fine Offset family, then it might be that one of the parts of the console memory (i'm trying not to be too technical) got corrupted leading to Cumulus reading the rainfall wrongly. Start at http://wi...

I have found I used $recentHighlight = $monthNum * 31; // number of days (+1) of recent records to highlight, initialised at approximate equivalent for number of days so far t...
