How to re-arrange/remove Gauges?

Postby Jeff-T » Sat Jan 16, 2016 9:42 pm

I would to re-arrange/remove some of the gauges on the gauges page on my local network server but as a complete novice I do not know how to do this.

Can anyone offer some help, advice or point me in the right direction to what I need to do to achieve this.

I would like:-
Row 1-Temperature-Humidity-Rainfall
Row 2-Wind Speed-Wind Direction-Pressure

This is for display on an 8 inch tablet. 6 gauges fit the screen nicely.

Thanks in advance.

Jeff

Hi Jeff

You need to edit the file gauges.html in the interface folder where you have CumulusMX installed. Take a copy of the file first!

Using a decent text editor (not a word processor) -- something like Notepad++ (or even just notepad), open gauges.html
Down at line 92 you will see a line: <div class="row">
This is a row of three gauges starting
The next line: <div class="col-md-4"> is the start of the first block (or gauge). In this case temperature.
It ends one line 105
Line 106 starts another gauge (the Other temps).
Line 124 is the next gauge starting

Line 137 finished the first row and 138 starts the next row of three
and so on.

You need to be careful moving the blocks around (getting the start and end of the <div>...</div> but if you can follow these it is easy to move.

If you are not comfortable doing it I will do it and send you the file.

Hi David

Thanks.

I tried editing but it was the wrong file I was editing gauges.htm in the web folder. I will have another go with the correct file.

Just FYI.. gauge.htm in the web folder is different, and for the public web pages. I assume you are wanting to edit the Cumulus MX dashboard layout -- which are the files in the interface folder

Hi David

It is the gauges page layout I am trying to change not the Dashboard layout, or do I need to change this as well? I just tried to edit the gauges.html file in the Interface folder and although Cumulus ran the web interface did not work so obviously messed up somewhere.

I reinstated my backup and back to normal now.

I will give it another go tomorrow. Of course if you are happy to edit the file for me that would be great and much appreciated.

In the longer term I must get my head round editing these files.

Jeff

Ah right, sorry...when you said "local network server" I thought you meant the Dashboard layout.

If you want to change the web pages, this is a little different. basically you edit the gaguesT.htm file in the web folder where cumulusMX is installed. These "T" ending files are templates to build the actual pages.

You would then move about the sections within the file for each gauge. I've attached a version I have edited for you. Save this to the web folder. Next time Cumulus does your web update it will use this T file and your gauges should be reordered.

(NOTE: the file is attached here as gaugesT.zip as you can not attach an htm file. Download it, double click to extract and you should get the .htm file)

Hi David

Thanks for the file.
It wasn't successful unfortunately. It moved the gauges, had a white background and the readings were not working.
I will have another try later.

I'm confused about whether you are wanting to change the gauges page on a web site, or the gauges page in the MX user interface. The pages work differently and are not interchangeable. The file David has uploaded is for a web site, it won't work in the MX user interface.

I was confused too. I started off thinking it was the MX interface, but now think it is the web pages so i've attached a new gaugeT.htm file for Jeff to try. It worked on my test setup.

Hi Jeff,

I know what you on about. You need to edit the gauges.js to rearrange the gauges and if you dont need UV or solar radiation you need to edit the gauges.js file.

Richard, no the gauges.js file does not dictate the positioning of gauges on the page, it merely sets the values of each gauge.

Im pretty sure the gauges.js can rearrange and remove the ones you dont want. As in change the gauges you want in row 1 and row 2. To clarify this you need to ask the designer of the code.

You can certainly use the .js file to hide some of the gauges, but not move the position.

Mark (mcrossley) will be online soon and can clarify

Success.

I edited gauges.html in the interface folder.

Thanks for everyone's advice.

ah right, it was the interface / Dashboard you wanted changed. :D So my initial thought was correct.

You've possibly got a tiny problem as the size of the rainfall box is a little smaller than the others, so you might not have moved all the code chunk for that one
