Everything is explained at

www.meteotemplate.com

where you will find also a link to the daily updated Blog to which you can subscribe, a wiki that explains how to install and use it, the download files etc.

If you need help, have a suggestion, question, problem, you can either email me (I will reply within 24h and if necessary we can arrange a Skype call etc.), use the blog to send me a comment, ask here, or ask at the wxforum.net, I am very active there. I will try to watch this forum as well, but unfortunately I really dont have so much time to post everything on several forums. You can of course ask here, but I will probably post updates only at the wxforum.net forum, but you can always also check the Blog, where is everything.


Enjoy

iccb,

good luck! Let us know how you are going on - I spent some hours with it but I am not really satisfied with the installation procedure.

Cheers,
Reinhard

And I also replied to your emails asking you to send me some details so that I can check your settings, which you did not.

It was somewhat daunting, but it is not rocket science and it only needs one successful installation.  It is not as though one needs to run the installer on a daily basis.

The problem is solved now. I think the problem is he was reading documentation for other software rather than the one for the plugin, we solved it already :)

Looking forward to see your Weather Template, Techno.
Mine is showing up an Offline Weather Station at all but surely I have made mistakes in my setup.

Yoda would say: Too stupid you are.
My answer: Correct you are.

Several steps:
- make sure your weatherCat plugin is in the plugins directory
- make sure you set your path to realtime.wc.txt in the weatherCat.php
- set a cron job to ..../plugins/weatherCat/weatherCat.php?password=UPDATE PASSWORD FROM MAIN SETUP

If it does not work, send me an email with your template password and I will look at it

Why do you call this file realtime.wc.txt?

The name WeatherCat sends it is realtimegaugesWC.txt. Or am I missing something?

Hi,
interesting... I have no idea :D When Tom sent it to me it was called realtime.wc.txt and I thought that is how it is generated by weatherCat. Sorry, I never saw this SW and so I probably incorrectly assumed that is what it is called... but it doesnt really matter, as long as the path is correct, it is irrelevant what that file name is. Though if that is the case I should correct it in the wiki.
Sorry about that.

OK, this shows that it cannot find the source file. Either incorrect path or permissions.

The script as such works, I have that confirmed by several people already, so lets go step by step:

1. make sure that the weatherCat.php is in plugins/weahterCat/weatherCat.php
2. make sure that the file from which you want to read the data is readable
3. post here the path you specified for the file

I will check the file to see if it looks like the one that is necessary.

IMPORTANT!!!

Hi guys,

recently I noticed that my replies to some people ended in the Spam folder of their mailbox. I dont know, it could be that it recognizes my Czech IP, but either way, if you email me, just to make sure, put my email address on your list of exceptions to make sure this does not happen. I ALWAYS reply to all emails.
