Website Updates
« on: September 13, 2017, 02:34:46 PM »
Hello all

Regarding my website: Deputydawgwx.com:  half way down on the left where the USA Extreme data is there are a bunch of errors.    Looks like the link is bad.  Does anyone know what the current link for this is?

Also while I was checking this I ran across a web url that will check versions of my various PHP modules:

http://deputydawgwx.com/check-fetch-times.php?show=versions

Many were outdated.  The page was creates summer of 2015 and I have never updated.  How serious is this?   How hard is it for a non scripting person to update?    I can get the new modules from the Saratoga-weather site, but obviously if I replace them all customization is gone. I guess I could make a copy of the production versions one at a time replacing the customized values with the new template?

Thoughts?

Or if there is someone that would like to (for a fee of course) update my site or show me how that would be great as well.

Regards
Paul

I understand your concern!  I purchased 'Compare It!' several years ago, and it has saved me countless headaches when upgrading my modified Saratoga and other scripts.  There's a moderate learning curve, but it's well worth it.  One indispensable aspect of this program is that it ignores white space rather than marking every white-space variation between files as a 'difference'.

Use 'Compare It!' with confidence that you can preserve your customizations while you incorporate updates into the script.  I run most of Ken True's updates through 'Compare It!' just to be sure I'm not hosing some changes I've made for whatever reason.

One caveat is to be sure to inspect VERY carefully the new (Left script) and the old code (Right script) BEFORE you click to 'import' it thus overwriting that portion of the old script you're updating.  Some changes are small but they can be important.  Fortunately the differences are well-highlighted.

COOL.. Thanks

Looks like its PC only ):    My mac would be easier with a 27" screen to have them side by side.

Good thing would be to save each script in a "before" folder :)   

I appreciate the response.

Do you mean $url2? If so - http://www.cpc.noaa.gov/products/analysis_monitoring/cdus/prcp_temp_tables/dly_glob1.txt

I have v4.03 of the script dated 13-Oct-2016. Working for me (click the banner).

HTH.

YES that is it !!!!!!! thats what i'm missing

On my web page it errors with:
Warning: file(http://www.wunderground.com/climate/extremes.asp): failed to open stream: HTTP request failed! HTTP/1.0 500 Internal Server Error in /home3/paul/public_html/usaextremes.php

When you said: "I have v4.03 of the script dated 13-Oct-2016"  - which script are you referring to?

Thanks

usaextremes.php.

Thanks for the kind words. My site is Ken's Saratoga scripts, a bunch of stuff from Jerry, and Scott's dashboard.

Ken True has the extremes script available at http://saratoga-weather.org/scripts-NWSmisc.php#NWSEXTR.

I got the USAExtremes working - just replaced the script.

I checked and didn't see any specific references to my site or area so after making a backup copy I just moved it over.

Check it out:  deputydawgwx.com

Thanks for your help. Heck if you see anything wrong, improvements, suggestions let me know
