"Cumulus Weather Data"

Postby acatalano » Mon Mar 27, 2017 4:35 pm

I've finally gotten CUtags & realtime.txt to update properly and data is being uploaded OK,-mostly. One item which is still completely incorrect is the "cumulus weather data" age and start time, and it's status is never current. Since the realtime.txt and CUtags.php seem to be working properly, I'm at a loss to understand the remaining problem. The page also does not show the proper version of CumulusMX which is 3.0.0 Something is out of whack; I'm not sure what it is. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

The problem is that your CUtags.php does not contain your data: http://apcat.org/CUtags.php?sce=view

As for the cause, perhaps the CUtags file you are using for input to Cumulus is actually an output file, i.e, it contains real sample data from the Saratoga installation, or perhaps you have not configured Cumulus to upload the genuine file to the correct place. Or, something else.

Thanks for the suggestion. Actually I corrected the problem. Way back when I set up the Saratoga Templates I had the exact same problem. In the Settings .php file, it was necessary to change the value of $Site['WDdateMDY']=true to false. So I thought I must have copied an earlier version of the php file with "true", but I had not, so I figured there was an error somewhere else. On a whim, I went back and changed it to the seemingly "incorrect" value to "true" again. Much to my surprise everything works! perhaps the Template has changed? I'm baffled, but relieved. :bash:
