Webcam on main page

Discussion and questions about Cumulus weather station software version 1. This section and its subforums are the main place to get help with Cumulus. Anything which is not specific to the type of weather station goes in here; for anything specific to a type of weather station, please use the appropriate subforum. Use the 'website development' section for any questions relating to creating or running a web site for Cumulus data. Discussion of the stations themselves in these sections is fine.

Hi Steve and all,
We are adding a webcam to our station http://www.o-vader.se.
Is there a way of putting a link with a picture on the main page at the bottom right corner that presents the actual view?
Now we have two instruments there when viewing the page from a PC.
When clicking on it you would get an enlarged picture.

I use ContaCam to retrieve a snapshot from a camera then ftp it to my website images directory. A link in indexT.htm (<img width="290" height="218" src="http://computerwright.com/weather/images/cam_1.jpg"><BR> Sawyers Mill Weather Cam </center>) then places it on the Web page. That way I don't advertise my camera ip address and associated data. There are several other apps that work similarly to ContaCam.

Hi Ron,

Thank you for the info. I will check this.
What I would like to do is to put that image on the main page, o-vader.se.
This is the only page that we link to and of course with a little knowledge they can find the sub pages :-)

Like Ron, I have also modified my indexT.htm www.komokaweather.com/weather to include my URL link webcam. It is not in the location on the home page that you are thinking, but am sure you or someone could tinker to place it anywhere you would want.

Enjoy,
Paul
