I just took a look at your gauges and they are working fine - every change I make within the units the gauges take them at once.

Thanks for looking at them Reinhard. Must be something unique to Safari on my end.

I have updated the wiki article for SteelSeries version 2.5.15. Line numbers have changed and I added some additional paragraphs about customizing the gauges. I also added clarification that this wiki article is for Mark Crossley's SteelSeries Gauges.

Thanks! Looks very professional! Will give it a complete read this weekend! Were you a professional/technical writer in your earlier years?

I spent some time this week tweaking the gradient colours on several of my gauges. I am amazed at the level of customisation one can do with this remarkable software, once you overcome the fear of changing something below the warning line. I also enjoy looking at the gauges on various WeatherCatter websites, to see how you have tweaked yours. Keep calm and customise.

Yep! We have been getting a lot of it, and apparently there's more to come. It's part of that system that is floating most of southern Louisiana. Up here at 795 ft (Ooooh…) we don't need to be concerned about widespread flooding, and most people know not to live in a creek. So, my greatest issue with it is how fast the grass is growing. And, it's growing thick and fast!

Can't mow, 'cause it's always wet!

Mark,

your Sun Plot is only working on a .php site and not on a .html - is this correct? If so I think it is not possible to implement it into an existing .html, or am I wrong?

Thanks in advance,
Reinhard

You should be able to embed it in a HTML page just like a PHP page (so long as the server is running PHP obviously). Just using a standard <img> tag, like...
Code: [Select]
<img src="sunplot.php" alt="Sun Plot" width="X" height="Y">

Just played around a bit and got it now! Very cool! Link follows...  :)

Update: http://wetter.unterwurzacher.at/wetterwerte.html (Scroll down to >Sonne<)

Another very cool script, Mark.
Thanks for sharing!

I almost did not dare to ask, but:

What about adding a time-line from 0 to 24 to the png?

Nice work, Reinhard.

I just added a small section to the wiki to explain relative paths, since that is the single biggest challenge WeatherCatters have in implementing the gauges. I would appreciate you or Mark taking a look at section 3.1.3 and making sure I explained it correctly.

Thanks.
