Hi Weathercat Fans


 SinceI can't get the gauges to work on my web site is there a way to get them to work on my desk top
Thanks

Randall,
Can you supply me with a link to where you have them on your site? I will take a look and see if I can spot the problem.

I have updated the Wiki page at http://wiki.trixology.com/index.php/Steel_Series_Gauges but I would like someone to check it out to make sure I haven't missed a step somewhere.

There are two option paths you could follow with these instructions:

Option 1) The gauges will be located in the root level of your website (i.e. http://www.yourpage.com/gauges-ss-basic.htm)
Option 2) The gauges will be located in a subfolder of the root level of your website (i.e. http://www.yourpage.com/steel/gauges-ss-basic.htm)

Please let me know if there is anything more that needs to be added (or changed) in these instructions.

Col.

Hi Col,
maybe it should be better explained that before "Open WeatherCat Preferences --> Online --> Custom Web --> Additional Files" someone should make a copy of "realtimegaugesWC.txt" and store it somewhere where it can be found easily. Because this is the only file that is needed on the local computer to be processed - all other files within the "steels folder" are ftp'd to the server and not needed on the local computer any more. For me I did store it in the Custom Web folder.

Just a thought.

Cheers,
Reinhard

Hi Weathercat Fans
 If get this correctly the only file that WC needs to process is realtimegaugesWC.txt and if so why can't I take it after WC processes it and put it in the gauges-ss folder on my desk top and get it to work there until 5 switch web hosting company would like to just see them work on my computer
thanks

Hi Col and all,

I have the steel gauges working on my web site. Followed the wiki instructions okay, but had to make a couple of changes due to having the custom web additional files already being used for my Saratoga format site. WeatherCat uploads all additional files to the FTP address specified in the custom web setup - in my case another existing subdirectory.    The additional ss files coexist without any problem.     
Line 19 was changed to:   '/subdirectory/',
and line 43 changed to :  '/subdirectory/reltimegaugesWC.txt',

The wiki final paragraph under "Final steps . . . " implies the additional files will ALWAYS be in the root directory when in fact they will be in the folder specified by the Custom Web FTP setup. 
       [ www.w6dsp.org/steel/gauges-ss-basic.htm]

Thanks to Col and all those who brought us this great addition.   [tup]

Now if I can just figure out how Reinhard got that great looking background !

Regards,
David

I'd love to see the page you set up.  I am also running the Saratoga template.  What is the url to your site?

Thanks!

Randall,
The error that is causing the problem is that your page cannot load the gauges.js file. It is looking for the file at http://weatheronthehill.6te.net/gauges-ss/scripts/gauges.js but for some reason it does not appear to be there. Are you able to FTP into your site and confirm that the file exists and is in that location?

Col.

Actually that is a good point. You could leave the file where it is in the folder structure or you could move it to a location that makes more sense to you. I will change the Wiki page to reflect your suggestion.

Hello David,
for adding an individual background image you have to edit the code in the gauges-ss.css:
Code: [Select]
body {
font-family: Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif;
font-size: 10pt;
text-align: left;
        background-image: url(/regenmetal.jpg);
}
I added the 4th line, and pointed the css to the place where the desired background pattern is stored on your web directory.

Cheers,
Reinhard

Thanks Reinhard. Have now added these instructions to the Wiki page as well.
