Satellite Imagery Problem
« on: December 01, 2018, 02:37:14 PM »
Since the upgrade to 3.0.3 my satellite imagery window shows a test pattern in all three windows. Periodically, it will blink to a satellite image, but immediately (0.5 seconds or so) returns to the test pattern. Right now, channel 1 is blinking in and out at about once/second.
I've fiddled with the preference settings, but am obviously missing something.

I assume you are speaking of the settings in WC->Prefs->Imagery. If so, what do you get if you copy the settings (the url) in the different channels and then paste that url into a browser URL/location text box?

Perhaps you could report the url's you have in those three Channels? I think mine are the defaults:
Right now, channel 1 is blinking in and out at about once/second.
Is that "blinking" in the Preview or your site? What is the rate at which WC is updating it's reports/tags? I have WC set to update data every 2 minutes and that's how often I see a blinking.

I don't use that function, so I don't know how WC uses the images, but if you are using a third-party Template, you may want to check the settings in that area, also.
