Full site template no. 1
« on: November 10, 2005, 12:51:31 AM »
Example site:
http://www.carterlake.org/template1/

Template files (including readme.txt install):
http://members.cox.net/carterlakeweather/templatewebsite1.zip

I've had several people say they like the original single page template as the home page, so my next custom template will be a modification of this template. It will incorporate the original single page template as the main page.

Dave, you'll want to re-download it if you haven't already... minor problem with Firefox in the original.

Nope... I'm losing my mind... I completely left it out of the zip file.

Fixed and reuploaded. (this is just not my day for custom templates)

Well, maybe this will make your day a little better....
Here's my first quick attempt (without the links page working)  :D

I'll be editing it some more for sure, but it all works

http://www.sterlingrun.com/weather/wx10.html

I'll put the links page in now.....

That does make it all worthwhile. Thanks!  8)

(I wonder if anyone will leave the "About This City" in there...)

Ok - got the links page working.

Hope you don't mind, but I found a little bug I think.
On the "Daily Stats" page, under "hot days this month" & "cold days this month" the first two tags under those headings are not rendering properly.

I am so impressed! You sure put a lot of work into this - thanks so much for sharing!
Have some more editing to do, like on the "about us" page, etc, and a small CSS change to suit my taste.......

THANK YOU!    :D :D :D

Nope... I doublechecked the template.... what are you editing the files with? It changed > into > and that broke the custom tags.

I'm editing with NVU - I'll go back and check it out right now...

Probably a question for Brian, about the moon tags - they seem to show only in UTC - I can't find how to change to local time.

Be right back.....

OK - got it. I ended up having to open the page up in notepad to make the change.
For some reason NVU is doing this. I went into advanced properties, and tried a couple different settings without any luck.
Anyway, got it fixed.

Thanks!

Wow - all those tags sure makes WD do some crunching!

Tom

They look great.  Thank you for a job well done.

I just finished getting the 1 pager working, looks like this will be a project for tomorrow night.
One quick question is there a way on the forecast to get the NOAA weather icons to link?
