Wow, thanx!!! After following your new Wiki-steps more exactly, it worked. Thanx again for quick response!

I think I need to do some small finishing touches here and there to make my weather site perfect. One thing I would like to adjust if possible, is the precipitation radar map. I live in Norway, and I would like to adjust so I can see whole of Norway on the map. Is that possible to adjust, and if it is, how?

Well I am glad that everything is working out better now.

Adapting the rain radars is not a big task.
To find a suitable radar map is the most difficult part.
You could than either adapt the weather2/inc/rain3Sources.php script which is capable of displaying three radar maps. Or better build your own page using the inc/newPage.php script.
Succes, Wim

Well I will take a look at that later. Not a big issue.

Another question: I just discovered that the yesterday`s values on my site are not working. If you take a look at my site (www.uranusweather.com) you can se that the yesterday`s values are high 0,6 and low also 0,6 both values at the same time, at 12.20. That temperature value is the same as the real temperature at last midnight. Any tip on how to deal with that?

Hello Rob,
Thanks for bringing this to my attention. Running 7 different weather-programs is not a real excuse.  I should have seen this earlier. It was a classic case of "a quick copy-paste and not enough checking".

As always make a back-up copy of the files you are going to replace first!
It is tested and runs at http://www.weerstation-leuven.be/weather2/index.php?p=10&wp=WC

Atached is a zip with two files:
copy wsTagsWC.htx to your weather2/uploadWC folder on the webserver
copy wsTagsWC.php to your "tagFiles" folder on the MAC were WeatherCat is running.
After a fresh upload the dashboard will display correct times and values.

Dear Wim and WeatherCat fans,

Running 7 different weather-programs is not a real excuse.

 ;) . . . Unless running 7 weather station software packages is a way to have good luck . . . . . .  I'd say you are glutton for computer hassles!

Seriously, thanks for all your efforts, it does sound like a lot of work!

Cheers, Edouard  [cheers1]

@ALL North American users - NOAA forecast error

For one reason or another (sloppiness) I let a test setting in the NOAA Plain forecast script so that it defaults to Brandford CT.

When Dennis Hall from http://rathdrumweather.us/ notified me about this (thanks Dennis) I discovered also that, in the NOAA xml,  for the rural areas a different field is used as for the cities.

Please replace the two NOAA scripts in weather2/noaa with these new ones, AFTER making a backup copy of the old scripts.

There is also a download available with all updates since the original 2.4 release.
You find this at the download area: http://www.weerstation-leuven.be/_template2/template.php?lang=en&step3

Have a nice sunday,

Wim

Thanks for a great set of templates  -- got them up and running in no time ... still mucking around with them, but my new weather station is pushing data, and the site is starting to come together...

Thanks again!

Some days ago a little problem occured on my weather site www.uranusweather.com On the menu on the left side I choose Forecast and then metno forecast. Then I only get a big empty space with the error message No valid input found. The same happends when i choose Customize on the left menu, and then choose metno meteogram or metno icons on what forecast do you want on the main page. Maybe there have been some changes in the source site at metno_

The MetNo API has changed since 2014-09-09.
There is a quick  but incomplete temperary solution.
http://www.wxforum.net/index.php?topic=23789.msg228599#msg228599

You can install the latest version from
http://www.weerstation-leuven.be/  => tab "Leuven PHP scripts for use on your own website:"
There you find the latest versions of all scripts with instructions to use in the Saratoga or Leuven-template or in your own build website.

Please check once every few months as API's change .

OK. So the the API call results correct  information.

But you still have to implement the latest script at your convenience. There are a lot of new weather-icons and the weather-descriptions changed also.

Hi again,

Yesterday and today I have had problems with my website. The main page http://www.uranusweather.com/weather2/index.php (with the Leuven-Template) is quite empty, only gray without any text or symbols. The original main page - the WeatherCat original main page, is still working and is up to date with all weather values - http://www.uranusweather.com/index.html I therefore believe the ftp-settings should be alright.

Could the problems have anything to do with the Leuven-Template files, maybe one file has gone corrupt or something like that?

Rob

The webserver delivering metar xml is on maintenace this weekend. The code in wsmetar.xml was not up to its taksk and ended in errors (at all 120 other sites facing this problem).

I enclose a new version of the script
1. make a copy / backup of weather2/wsMetarxml.php
2 unzip the attachement
3 replace script on server with unzipped one.

Does anyone know if I can use Google Drive as a web server for the Leuven Template?
