First of all REMOVE <head><script type="text/javascript"> // at the bottom of your page, you shouldn't have TWO <head> statements. Replace the code you have at the bottom of your page BEFORE the closing </body> tag with this ... <script type="text/javascript"> // <![CDATA[ var re...

Re: webcam refresh webpage

No need really. If the JS 'fails' for any reason, then the body background-image will be the one defined in weatherstyles.css . If the JS is working, then assuming your webcam pic always has the same name ... document.body.style.background ="url('image + '?' + new Date()') will change the backg...

Re: Yet Another Dayfile Reader (PHP)

... it doesn't say 'error reading dayfile' or something like that anymore.
That suggests you had a problem earlier !

It obviously can't "see" your data for whatever reason. Double check your paths from where the file is located.

Re: webcam refresh webpage

No .. It's JavaScript (Which happens to be updating a CSS / object property)

.. to replace that which you are trying already.

Re: Home Page working

1. Reload my Home page automatically every say 30 seconds (but be able to vary this in the light of experience); Your data is being checked every three seconds or so. Why do you want to (meta) refresh the entire page every thirty seconds ? 2. Have that reload time reflected in the heading (eg Sunda...

Re: CumulusMX vs. Cumulus ajax template problem

First of all I can't see anything in either page that 'fires up' the ajax (javascript) ? However; the information is initially populated by the ...ajax.php files. It appears that the different php files are also looking up two different cumulus webtag files. One of which IS being updated, the other ...

Re: Automatic slide show from directory (PHP)- Better soluti

As I said JQuery isn't 'my thing' I'm afraid .... ... and I haven't downloaded or run the files to 'dissect' them properly. So you're on your own I'm afraid.

Re: Automatic slide show from directory (PHP)- Better soluti

You are an awkward cuss :lol: Sorting is NOT being done by the php part of the script but the js code (I don't know why ?) So put that back the way it was (Presumeably a js recognizable format) The options to sort by filename or date are at the bottom of the js script. Additional customizations Insi...

There are obviously lots of code snippets out there, which if the don't do what you want someone of your experince should be able to mash. ;) I assume your biggest gripes are your image load times (which of course will be determined by their size, and the actual transition effect) Here's one I found...
