No stations on evaluation version
« on: April 02, 2012, 10:31:04 AM »
Hello everyone.
After some hours research/editing files I still cannot get any stations to show on WML evaluation version 1.04 . Have I got to purchase a data feed to evaluate? In which case hardly seems a genuine evaluation. I confess to being slightly irritated with WML after finding WD/WDL great programs.
Can anyone shed light please
Thank you
Gary

It has been ages since I messed with WML Evaluation however i seem to remember it was restricted to one map and a few stations...

How about you provide a URL where we can view your eval version and see if anyone can see a problem...

Something may be broken with the eval, I think it should show some preselected UK stations on the UK map.

From the instructions:

"Open up a web browser and navigate to the index.html file. You should see a map of the UK with a few weather stations and an Evaluation Notice displayed on top. In evaluation mode WeatherMap Live will only work with these preset stations but it will confirm that WeatherMap Live is working and allow you to experiment with the various options. "

I just downloaded and installed it and I have the map, but no stations. I'll enter this as a bug report.

Gary,

Niko submitted a bug report for the WML evaluation version and hopefully Chris, The Administrator, will get a chance to look at that soon.

Sorry, it's my fault. Even the evaluation version has to have a data subscription and it had expired  :oops: I've renewed it now so you should see stations again.
