Jachym,

A question for you concerning duplicating Blocks. I want to create a copy of the Gauges Block with only the UV Gauge showing. I realize that two of the same Blocks cannot be on the Homepage.

- I made a duplicate of the Gauges folder, and renamed it uvGauge
- I renamed the duplicate Gauges.php and GaugesConfig.txt to uvGauge.php and uvGaugeConfig.txt
- I used Text Wrangler to change the name and namespace inside all of the files from Gauges to uvGauge

But of course, it didn't work, because I'm just a hack guessing at how this works. ;)

What I'm trying to do is create a Multiple Block in the sidebar, with the UVgauge at the top, and the uvForecast below. But since I have Gauges in my center column, I can't simply have Gauges twice.

Thanks for any suggestions you may have.

Hi,
not sure what exactly you have / have not done, basically:

you need to rename:
gaugesBlock to uvGaugeBlock
gaugesBlockConfig to uvGaugeBlockConfig
then inside uvGaugeBlockConfig change the namespace

that should be all, do not change any names of other files, only the "*Block" needs to be changes, the other files are referenced by the script inside the Block script

Well, that worked! Thank you, again.

Apparently I don't have subBlock figured out how to correctly stack uvGauge on top of uvForecast, though

multipleBlock(uvGauge,100;subBlock[uvForecast],100)

Time for lunch again, and then a macro seminar at the local photography store. Back later...

Im not sure what you are trying to achieve, what is the point of creating a subblock with just one block, it is then equivalent to normal multiple block,

see

Because I thought it was going to look like this:



Instead of this:



Thinking it would look more like one item; current UV and UV Forecast, rather than two separate Blocks.

When I did Multiple Block, it looked like this, even though I set both at 100% width:




I guess my mistake was thinking that sub-blocks were for stacking blocks within one parent block.

If you set the width to 100% then it tries to span the whole column width

I don't think we're talking about the same thing, but never mind for now.

Another question: Is there a way to tell yr.no what time zone the meteograph should be in the meteographBlock? I am at UTC -5, and on the yr.no web site looking at the Cleveland Ohio meteograph, it correctly shows the start of the graph at 16:00 local time. But the meteograph on my web page, when set to Cleveland Ohio, shows the chart beginning at 21:00. So I have no forecast showing for the next five hours. This is consistent, as it was five hours ahead last evening, too.

Probably not, the data is taken from the yr.no RSS feed and the time is converted, but they probably do not give more information

Jachym,

Can you tell me what these two blocks are? I can't seem to find any that match those features.

Thanks,
Steve

Doh!! I forgot to attach the image.



I found the top one; socialNetworks. Haven't found the bottom one.

Sorry for the confusion...

Thanks, I hadn't found that one yet. I just stuck it on my test page with a bunch of other plugins and blocks.

Gotta get outside to rake leaves!

Jachym,

I've added the radarUS block to my test web site. There is an image missing in the icons file.

homepage-->blocks-->radarUS-->icons-->light-->soilMoisture.png

I did a half-assed job of creating an inverted copy of the dark version, but when you get around to creating the light version, please send me a copy.

Thanks
