Greetings all,
I am getting mentally prepared to tackle the MeteoTemplate. On my Godaddy account I have set a subdomain to read www.magpie-hill/meteotemplate. I hope to have all the MT stuff in a separate folder so that I can either look at my SimpleWeb under www.magpie-hill or MeteoTemplate under www.magpie-hill/meteotemplate.  Does that sound ok?
Thanks for all the help.
PS Nice clouds with a dusting of snow on the peaks at about 1800m

yes that sounds perfectly fine, it can run from a folder, you just have to then specify that in the settings for the path

Use the control panel to clear the station data cache.

That cured it. Thanks.

That's exactly what I have done. Main site is www.selstonweather.info, Meteotemplate site is www.selstonweather.info/meteo. Works fine.

Firstly - I do like the ideas and functionality you have in this template... I wanted to give this a whirl on my weather site but if I am understanding the instructions, I need to download the weathercat plugin (http://meteotemplate.com/web/downloadRequest.php?file=weatherCat_2.0) when I click on this link on the plugins page, it opens a new tab that says thanks for downloading the plugin but nothing downloads.

I was able to download the core template file (http://www.meteotemplate.com/web/downloadRequest.php?file=main) without issue.

I did try to download the Weathercat Plugin file with Curl just to see what would happen:
#curl http://meteotemplate.com/web/downloadRequest.php?file=weatherCat_2.0

<b>Warning</b>:  file_get_contents(): Filename cannot be empty in <b>/data/web/virtuals/104571/virtual/www/web/downloadRequest.php</b> on line <b>1867</b><br />

I hope this helps debugging the download ... looks like something got screwed up with the downloadRequest.php script ;(

It works perfectly fine, I just tried. Make sure you have the pop-up blocker disabled

It works for me in Chrome, opera and FF

Yep

Sorry - my fault - I thought I had whitelisted your domain for popups in my browser - which I did earlier ... then for some reason I tried to download in another browser  on another computer and /facepalm


Sorry and THANKS :)

Alan:

I spent some time on both of your sites. Nice job.

Thanks Blick.

When I get time, I will finish setting up the Meteotemplate and add a few pages. Very impressed with the amount of information it provides.

If anyone else is considering installing the template, please do as Jachym suggests and read the instructions carefully. There are a couple of places where you can make a mistake, but if I can do it, anyone can.

ALAN.

Thanks Alan.

Its not that I didnt want to help people - in fact it is the other way around, but it is better if they first try themselves, simply because I get on average about 50 emails/day and it is something I do in addition to my full-time, part-time job and a PhD degree so it then sometimes takes a while before I get to you. If someone needs help because they dont know what to do, thats not a problem or even if they need help with installing the whole thing, but I first ask them to read the wiki, if they are lost, no problem, but sometimes people just do what they "assume" or "think they should do" and ask questions which are emphasized or directly answered in the wiki, in which case I just save myself work by giving them a link rather then retyping what I already answered :-)

So feel absolutely free to contact me, but see if you can find an answer in the wiki or FAQ first ;)

Jachym, my friend,
You simply need to find something to do with all your free time. Perhaps a second PhD? Astronaut training? I know you would make an excellent English writing teacher and/or translator! [rockon] Here are a couple of less challenging suggestions:
<"The Final Countdown" by computer hardware orchestra.>
<The Art of Making a Nixie Tube> (This vid alone will kill over 30 minutes!)

And one more thing...
I sometimes kill two birds with one stone... eg. in June I was studying for my climatology exam. Some parts I just couldnt remember, so I created a plugin for it.. and by typing it and working with the data... guess what I got an A :D So MT is great in many way for me, not just a way to spend my free time :D

Jachym

I have to say I am VERY impressed with the templates... spent a bit of time between conference calls tonight with folks in Australia/New Zealand putting this together... its still VERY rough ... just throwing blocks up with no real organization or layout in mind... just to see what a bunch look like...

http://weather.hoke.org/meteo/

*REALLY* dig this ... thanks a whole hell of a lot for making this available :)

jhoke:

I checked out your meteo template. Great layout; I like what you did even though you did it quickly. Looks pretty cool in my opinion.
