Create Web Page Help Needed
« on: February 20, 2019, 01:13:42 AM »
Grettings all,
Hey, I need a little help, I would like for my Public Web Page, being hosted by inmotion, (just and FYI), anyways I would like for the the default WD that shows up on my monitor.  I have all the FTP connections set and I can see the files are being put into the local drive, however they dont see to be uploading to my domain. I know this sound vague, but I don't know what else to say.  I am very lost here.  Are there any Videos I can watch on how to make a web page using Weather Display.  I did see a web page using the WDL and that would be cool too, but I don't know how to get the data from my desktop to the domain.  and I know for 100% is my settings in WD.  So what would be the easiest to get the FTP Working, just a simple test, would WDL be the way to try??

Brain,
Here is my URL  Santeewx.com

I used the setup >> web page Creation Wizard and followed the directions....I also turned on Client viewer/AVG/WDL  and hit start.  I have not enabled any of those Internet File Creation and uploads.

The goal is to have the default display that I have on desktop monitor to be my web page....I love the setup of the WD Default Display...I'm easy....

WD is uploading the data, here is a my FTP Log file.

you have the index.html file uploading
which is a good start

you will need to also have the 24/48/72 hour graphs uploading
if you use the customise internet and file creation setup then you can set what files to upload

see this you tube video

and

Ok, thank you for the info, I have been playing around with these for a few days and I am remembering where to go.....my questions to you sir:

1. Is the Saratoga Them the same them default them for WD.
2. Which File numbers do I need to upload, I believe its file number 29, (per the You Tube Video) and file number 11 curr 24/48/72 hour.

Just to be sure we are on the same page, do I need to have WDL switch on, currently on, and only have two files from the Internert File Creation uploading, file #11 and #29

Thanks again for helping me.....I am learning....so the questions will go away slowly....

The Carter Lake Template is like the Saratoga template, only it's a basic version which should get you started.

As Brian has said, I think you need to make sure that files are being uploaded to the site to start off with. So check your FTP settings and the FTP log to see if any errors are there.
If you're not sure then post the contents of the FTP log on here so we can try to figure it out - remove any usernames & passwords though!  :wink:

Ok I did the Carter Lake template and I am still missing images on the site, here is a screen shot of the files upload to my site.  To let y'all know the files are going to my /public_html directory.  Almost got it just need a few graphs.    attached are the screen shots and here is my FTP Log:   Hey Budgie, thats for the excellent work on the FAQ that is what I needed plus I did learn some stuff, which means less questions....sometimes I need to hit save a few times before WD accepts it, I did read that it must have something to do with how many CPU's I am running.  Also currently I have the Real Time clientraw upload for Client Viewer/AVG/WDL turned OFF, I hope this is correct...but I like the baby steps, we are making progress, and I am so sorry for all the stupid questions, turst me, I have been playing around with this WD for about 7 days and there is just so much this software can do and sometimes I think I have it going into a circle ...wait...thats me.   :)    What do I need to do to show those graphics....  Thanks again, BH

Finally,
I ran those XHTML and CSS Validations, the CSS came back as W3C CSS Validator results for http://santeewx.com/ (CSS level 3), Congratulations! No Error Found.

XHTML:  Line 314,Column 36: element "h0" undefined <div class="headerTemp"><h0><span class="doNotPrint"> (the web page has the > sign in red after the 0 and before <span Class etc...)

You have used the element named above in your document, but the document type you are using does not define an element of that name.This error is often caused by:
•incorrect use of the "Strict" document type with a document that uses frames (e.g. you must use the "Frameset" document type to get the "<frameset>" element),
•by using vendor proprietary extensions such as "<spacer>"or "<marquee>" (this is usually fixed by using CSS to achieve the desired effect instead).
•by using upper-case tags in XHTML (in XHTML attributes and elements must be all lower-case).


I have no idea what this mean....ok fellows I am done for the day, but please keep those suggestions coming, I wil work more on tomorrow...

Ciao~ and thanks for teaching this old dog new tricks....

BH
