Current Conditions Icon

Hi...
Couldn't find the answer to this, does WD produce a stand alone Current Conditions Icon that can be uploaded to the web like the forecast icon?

Thanks!

Hi,
yes in your webfiles directory you should find forecasticon.gif. The name is a bit misleading but it is actually the current conditions icon and is the one I use in my banner below.

Thanks Martyn - Yep that got me :)
So does that mean forecasticonstation.gif is the Forecast (prediction) icon?

Yes, that will be the icon according to what your weather station forecast is saying if applicable.

Actually one other question you may be able to help with Martyn...

I just noticed both the forecasticon.gif and forecasticonstation.gif only FTP a couple of mins after midnight. I'd like to have this updated more often like every hour.
I had a look around WD and yet to find the option.

Cheers.

you could use the customise internet and file creation ftp to do that
there is a youtube video on how that works
