good evening

sorry not been around nothing changed minor update to the sager version CU-X8 a couple days ago but other than that no changes..please note if you are using the sager version you need to run the zamcron.php every 6 hours from a cron job or similar method. it does not update itself without some trigger.

Hello

couple of new additions ..new daylight module written in pure css no jquery dependancies , its purely a visual element and works as a relative indicator
to give an idea of sun position..ive tested it for 3 weeks now so will be curious how it works in timezone totally the opposite of mine .

if your hardware supports there is a new pop up module for UV/Solar you will notice the LUX value in the screenshot having received another Weatherflow sky revision 2 last weekend i that now offers LUX(Brightness) output and has a vastly improved solar/uv component ..(this is a product to watch it really is and they are in no rush to gets something out the door half done for the last year almost to the day i have been testing various revisions of there hardware they are really getting close with every field test revision here is a map of current weatherflow hardware out there http://fsoft.com/smartweather.cfm )

meteoalarm alert removed too many complaints of script timeouts during european cold spell and i could numerous times going to some of your sites that
it was hanging at times and the browser console flagged this up. probably at present it is ok but last thing you want is something to go pete tong when it really matters :-) ...

I have dropped the SAGER version doesnt seem to be much use or call for it i think there is about 10 in total so i dont think it is a worthwhile option to have to keep upto date .

You will see many languages have been removed the ones removed were simply never updated since the day they were created so I saw no point in having them there.

I had a look at a newer METAR data script this week offered by SFWS but unfortunately i cant work it into the design visually of the dashboard , it does exactly what it is developed to do and supposed to do but it is designed for a full page type web template where you can display a lot more information ,so I will stick with Ken True original Metar script which i found easy to adapt to the template visually.

has always available under the cumulus box at https://weather34.com/homeweatherstation/

Thanks for the update. I thought it was the three day forecast that stayed on km/h. The current conditions changes to mph if you set to non-metric just not for UK settings.

good morning meteoalarm removed as above and below.in some cases where the meteoalarm did not load or timed out it caused many users to have the rest of page unable to load or took 2 or 3 minutes. i observed this a few times on sites using it.
therefore it is not included anymore .

good morning

over the last two weeks spent a few hours each morning preparing the template to be fully compatible with the general release of PHP 7.2 or greater and developed on PHP 7.2.3 locally .

the most teething issue is non numerical errors though these don't break any functions but they are better to be dealt with for a smoother
performance overall. particularly where weather templates due to multiple calculations based on numbers PHP 7.2 is a lot stricter on this side of things and will flag up discrepancies. ironing these out is a bit like resolving older pre https templates and making everything https compliant. so if you have various templates especially large ones then it could be a tedious task . hopefully I've got a foothold on it and any discrepancies that appear can be resolved relatively quickly from now on.

additional newer module and pop up for those that can measure realtime UV/SOLAR data , additonal improvements made to daylight module
, additional improvements overall to the performance of the template as seen from the screenshot below from a test run prior to this post this morning.

a full upgrade is an absolute must many files were changed and the file structure has changed considerably to eradicate PHP 7.2 flagged errors.there is probably still one or two but nothing worth losing any sleep over and i will eradicate them sometime in the future.the download (2.64mb) and actual template size has been reduced considerably .as always available via https://weather34.com/homeweatherstation/

its better to deal with it early otherwise it will be incredibly tedious in the future .have a nice day/ week/weekend brian ...

Thanks for your all your hard work Brian, much appreciated. I've been running PHP 7.2.x for a few weeks now and have noticed an improvement in performance over 7.1.x I too ran into some problems with Saratoga Templates and 7.2.x but most are ironed out now.

Will grab you latest and greatest update and apply to my site.

Thanks Again.

Hello Brian,

Thanks for this latest update as I have been running PHP7.2 for sometime now. Out and about at the moment but managed to squeeze some time. Although Webmin not the easiest thing to use in a browser on an iPad in my car and one fat finger managed a new record for updating and re-applying customisations of 3min 57sec. However noticed that had lost connection between console and Pi for a few hours earlier in the day so now have to wait for the database to catch up. Such is life!

good morning

i sincerely apologise I seem to fixed one thing and created an issue elsewhere in this case mobile menu. so i do apologise .

Ive re-wrote the menu system using just css and more better compatibility across smaller touch screen devices , its very slim and as you can see
from screenshot. sorry for the inconvenience but user feedback always benefits for things I don't see .

Yes Dimitris you can.
Try edit in settings1: $livedata = "http://.../realtime.txt";
The better way is to change it in easyweathersetup.php.
