It's a while since I played with this, but I think you just need to put http://www.bramptonweather.co.uk/cumulus/

Note that the final '/' is important.

You should not need the /public_html/ just the Website address of your weather page i.e http://www.new.avochweather.info/ as your realtime.txt file can be viewed by using http://www.new.avochweather.info/reatime.txt

On my new Android phone, the "Today" "Yesterday" and "Records" only show their data in the "landscape" view on the phone, not the "Normal" view holding the phone. Anyone else have this issue?

nice but a bit imprecise to set up.

I used http://www..... etc and managed to crash it twice. Once crashed you cant get back into settings so have to uninstall !

http:// .../Cumulus/ worked great, just took me 30 minutes to suss it.

A simple setup line detailing things like the trailing '/' and not needing 'realtime.txt' would have been great

Will post credit. Excellent

A few weeks ago I uploaded a relatively significant update to the app.

The look of the app has been slightly updated and a map has been added to easily view other weather stations and to easily select your own weather station.
Please complete this form to add your weather station to the map: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1qKWVno ... U/viewform

Will the new app update automatically?

There seem to be some broken image links in your post

Nice app :-)

The time periods that appear on the trends graphs aren't correct - where you see 12 hours, my graphs stretch over 72 hours; and where you see 30 days, my graphs stretch over 90 days. I guess these periods are configurable within Cumulus somehwere.

If the app is already installed on your phone, you'll likely have to go into the Play Store on your phone, pull the notification drawer, click the app "Home Weather Station" and update.

Yea when I made the app I didn't know Cumulus allows for the customization of the graph's time periods. I'll fix this likely in the next update.

Hi,

Nice app! but i seem to be having issues with trends. All i see is text and no graphs. What can be the issue? I checked my website, it contains the images folder.

Thanks!

This App is very nice! Am I correct that it doesn't support Cumulus MX Trends? That appears to be the only data that does not load. Will there be an update?

Thank you, well done!
