General Weather Discussion / Naked lady season! (Re: Summer 2018!)
« Last post by elagache on Today at 11:28:19 PM »
Dear WeatherCat observers of the seasons turning,

We are approaching the end of the "dog days of summer," with only a month or so before the Autumnal Equinox.  Areas to the north are certainly starting to experience the effects of shorter days.  However, in California and the Pacific Southwest "summer" can drag on well beyond its official end.  As such, the arrival of the Naked Lady flowers (Amaryllis belladonna) is more of a mid-summer event.  I used my iPhone to capture a few of the displays that are as wild as they are cultivated.  Here is a group outside of someone's fence:



Note the tenacious California Poppy in the lower right corner.   Here is a line of Naked Ladies that have been started beyond a retaining wall above a street gutter:



Here is a little group of these flowers in between some rocky landscaping:



Finally, here is a group of Naked Ladies making a bouquet framed by some grape vines:

 

These are the last free-standing flowers of the California dry season.  There are still some trees that will bloom, but the trend clearly shifts into anticipation for the rains that are always desperately needed when they finally come.

Cheers, Edouard  [cheers1]

I've edited my entire post #9 as Mr. Crossley has a better solution that we can apply to our own servers by editing the .htaccess file. It will affect what everyone sees as your Banner and should not require any editing of the WC software. I would rather he post the <IfModule mod_expires.c> ... </IfModule> code since this file can affect your whole site. If you decide to make the change, be sure to make a copy of the original .htaccess file BEFORE editing it. ThU32:-)

Hi gang with cache problems
 When created mine a put a code in the auto reloads the it every 2 minutes to prevent this

Randall, please share the code you used and where you placed it.

Personally I hate forced whole page refreshes, I'd rather put up with stale content if a better alterative cannot be implemented.

Mark, I agree. There has to be a more elegant way.

<CHOP>

With Admin access to the SMF files can add a <meta ...> line in the <head> of the "index.template.php" file and that might help with reloading all the pages. That usually causes a page 'flash' but it can be set to refresh at maybe 5 minutes and not be too troublesome. OTOH, that might be too long for 'speed-readers'.

<CHOP>

Note:"[Automatic] Refreshing the current page can be confusing. If a user didnít request the reload, they may become concerned about your site's security." For that reason, I include some text near the top of any page that refreshes automatically and note the normal timing.
