1. I purchased WD and WD live and have them both working fine at my site. My question is which file would I edit to change the way the page is displayed. I know I can edit the information that is one the page, but I want to change the look and feel. I noticed a few files (datahtm0, datahtm1, datahtm2 and the like), but if you edit them they get written over everytime the software updates the website. Is there a template? I read the manual but I did not see this information.
you can edit datahtm0.txt and datahtm3.txt
but to edit datahtm2.txt, you need to tick, let me manage the datahtm2.txt file ,in the webfiles/web page setup...
also, though , you can create a custom web page too ....by having a file called wxlocal.html, with the csutom tags in it,....and then wd produces a file called wx.html with the tags replaced, and uploads that (and you can change the remote name of that file)
up to 40 cusotm web pages can be created that way (i.e wxlocal2.html, etc)
there is a couple of example custom web pages included with the download...
2. I would like to add some sat images to my site, where would I get these.
you could add the html code to show an embdded image,,,,that is sourced from another site
see the html code in the datahtm files that is there already to show an image for how.,...
I also downloaded the auto-sat program but I am not sure how to use it correctly.
its a specialised program....you wont really need to use that....you can even get wd to download images ...see the http download in the ftp/internet setup
Does the NOAA site allow you to download and use sat files?
i think just a embded image link will do the trick
