Re: "dayfile.txt" is not updating

Are you saying that Cumulus cannot update file at rollover time, but file can be updated by Cumulus at another time? "Cumulus" is unable to update the "dayfile.txt" Cumulus is able to update and writ down the "dayfile.txt". If so, maybe some other process has been recen...

Re: FTP isn't working after host change

there is a momentary display in green of the actual current readings. Then it goes back to the readings of September 2nd. I know nothing about your set-up, but seeing correct readings being overwritten suggests to me that JavaScript (perhaps as an AJAX script) is overwriting what the basic website ...

Re: Truncate Webtag Value

I did it with JavaScript. I was trying to work this out on Internet Explorer Strictly speaking Microsoft Internet Explorer uses "jScript " (not " JavaScript " as implemented by other browsers). Although both script languages now follow the European Computer Manufacturers Associa...

Your earliest post in this thread says im stuck on Days Since Last Dry Day it saying 38 days but it meant to be 45 Where is it saying this? Is it on the extremes for May in all years? Attach a screenshot of the screen where it is showing the wrong figure if you cannot explain which screen it is. Do ...

Thanks @beteljuice.
The page suggests it focuses on Canadian METAR and has tried to add USA. So not worldwide like mine. But @buffaloseven does not share his METAR parser, so I can't directly compare decoding.

Re: Decoding METARS

I have chanced on https://www.aweathermoment.com/metars/ where a meteorologist displays information translated from raw METARS via a JSON file. You choose a local ICAO code that is of interest to you, select a past time period, hit Load and (by magic) graphs appear showing how the weather has varied...

Re: Tarting up my Data Summary

I think we’re talking about different things. I’m aware when I select a cell the days show in the left most column. But this is not the issue. Some wind directions display differently to others. No. I was not talking about the grey highlighting of row and column headings linked to current cell, yes...

Well done, Ray. Be aware that clicking the Valid HTML anchor at the bottom of the page indicates you have HTML errors on your new page.

Re: Tarting up my Data Summary

But first I need to update my version of jQuery. Hopefully not a daft question. I assume I need to stop Cumulus and run the installer. Is it something simple that once launched it knows what files need updating or is it a mainly manual exercise? You are using Cumulus 1, jQuery is only included ( ht...

Re: Additional Webpages - This Month and This Year

On my own implementation, I once was manually saving (adding to archive) the generated this month page as close as I was able to be available to the end of each month, and I added a carrier page allowing me to choose to display the current this month or any archived one from a menu of anchor links w...
