U.S. Extremes - new plugin
« Reply #1 on: July 20, 2015, 12:01:37 PM »
A brand new plug in is now available.

The script loads NOAA data regarding current absolute extremes for all the US states. This includes the highest ever recorded temperature, lowest ever recorded temperature, highest ever recorded precipitation in 24h, highest snowfall in 24h and highest snow depth.

The data from NOAA is checked once per day and cached.

Each record also includes the station where the particular value was measured and clicking on the station name opens a map, which shows location and some more information about this particular COOP station.

Data can also be viewed as a sortable list or as an interactive graph.

WL-IP 24/7 database updates - new plugin
« Reply #2 on: July 22, 2015, 05:26:14 PM »
A brand new plugin, which can be very useful to those using the Davis WL-IP router is now available. If your WL-IP router is sending data 24/7 to weatherlink.com, then you can use this plugin to update your database for the template. This means there is no need to have your PC or WeatherLink software running and your data on your page and your database are still being updated.

Instructions on how to use are included in the ZIP file.

Download: http://www.meteotemplate.com/web/plugins.php

P.S. As I do not own WL-IP myself I was not able to test it as thouroughly as I normally do, so please let me know if there are any problems.

Stickers - a new plugin
« Reply #3 on: July 23, 2015, 03:14:52 PM »
Hi, I have created a nice new little plugin, which Im sure some of you will find quite useful.

This plugin allows generating image stickers with current conditions from the stations. These images can then easily be used for example as signatures in forums etc.

Several sticker sizes are available and each one can be further customized in terms of its text, parameters displayed and colors used. All you need to do is download the ZIP file, upload it to your plugins directory and you can use it.

Demo: http://www.meteotemplate.com/template/plugins/stickers/stickers.php
Download: http://www.meteotemplate.com/web/plugins.php

Update to version 1.1
« Reply #4 on: July 25, 2015, 06:43:55 PM »
This is just to let you know I have just released an update of Meteotemplate to version 1.1. Probably the most visible change is something many of you have asked for the original header section is now replaced with the interactive banner.

Apart from that there are some other new functions and several bug fixes.

Detailed instructions as to how to update and also list of all changes available in the blog:
http://meteotemplate.com/blog/?p=111

Demo available at meteotemplate.com has also been updated.

Hi Carl,

no, you can of course import whatever you like. The way these scripts work is that you can add any logs and after each import, the database again sorts by date, moving your most recent import "in front of" the previous if the dates are before it. So if your 2015 logs worked then I would assume there should be absolutely no problems with 2014.

Carl there is nothing in the wiki because there is a general guide as to how to install a plugin and this one is no way different. Basically you unzip the folder, upload it to plugins folder and you are done :D

Hi Brian, what exactly do you mean? I dont have any problems with scrolling? There is the map and table below that. I tried Chrome and FF and I am not sure what you are talking about.

Btw. "it works" - you meant you checked meteotemplate.com or did you manage to get it working on your web?

Hi
I was just viewing your demo of the stations around the world
my internet is often slow and spotty here currently and so was probably that the web page had now completed loading
(the problem was when I went to scroll to the bottom it would jump to the top, sort of thing)

I don't have a scrolling problem with IE and Chrome. I do find the sort order of the cities (highest pop?) is a bit confusing.
