Took it for a test drive - very nice - should help a lot of folks get started with a website.  A fantastic idea and good implementation.  Nice job Tom.

The readme.doc included in the zip gives all the instructions for set-up.

I really thought there would be more interest in this....

This is a good thing - getting folks to make use of one more of the great features of WD.
This also integrates nicely with the recent addition of the WYSIWYG editor.

Well, I guess, so many features, so little time....

Looking forward to what CarterLake hints about a whole package including navigation.

Just saying thanks, and a bit of a thread bump  8)

snowman, I think it works so well it doesn't cause discussion.

I did play with it some.  I replaced the radar image with my web cam image.  It worked well.  My problem is that when it gets dark all I have is a grainy blob.  I'd like to be able to present something else at night.  Don't really want to have a caption saying if no picture it's night.

I've been reading a book on CSS.  It goes into what can be done but doesn't give the overall picture.  What I need is the whole picture.  CSS and html, and info saying if you change this.. this happens.  I can really see the power of CSS.  With only one change you can affect all the pages on you site.

I'm looking forward to the 'site' edition.  I'd like to be able to have the navigation and be able to replace the forecast section w/ WDL, MML or whatever.  Hint. Hint.

This was a great 'gift' from Tom.

I would also like to thank Tom. Nice stuff. He even helped me customize it a bit with current solar conditions.
