Re: Weather Underground API .. oops

Yes, various country Met Offices offer some APIs for country-specific forecasts -- I was looking for a service that offers world-wide coverage like WU does. I didn't want to have to write a bunch of scripts (one per country).. just lazy, I guess.

Re: Weather Underground API .. oops

There are two parts to the WU-API discussion: 1) PWS users submitting data to WU will be able to get their data (they say) and likely via the existing 'Download as CSV' function on a PWS station page and not via the current (discontinuing WU-API+key). 2) Current WU-API users who are getting forecast...

Getting duplicated PM notification messages...

Freddie,
I had a PM this morning that I viewed via the forum. Since then, I've gotten 10 emails saying I have a new PM (with the same PM ID).

Has something gotten stuck regarding forum PM email notifications (not clearing the queue after one notice sent?)

Best regards,
Ken

Re: Thank you, Steve for 15 years of support

I am pleased that Steve has decided to take retirement, and may it be a long and enjoyable time for him. I've offered to host the Wiki (and anything else he finds suitable) in a PM to Steve. I'll let you know what he decides. Thanks Steve for your excellent software and your patient and helpful supp...

Re: Suggested web site hosting offerings

One caution about hosting yourself on a home network -- the XAMPP/LAMP servers are good for development, but may not be sufficiently hardened against miscreants attempting to penetrate your local network. If you open a webserver to the internet, be assured it will be probed for vulnerabilities start...

Re: Forecasts and METAR data will not load no matter what

Some of the scripts may fail with PHP less than 5.5 version.

A check-fetch-times.php?show=info on your site shows
Stream support for https is NOT available but REQUIRED.
You’ll need to update PHP to have the site fully operate.

Re: End of Service for Wunderground API

Re WU-forecast.php, I don't know -- I'll send them a message regarding the API changes. If the suggested Weather.com API is expensive (for hobbyist accesses), then I'll just discontinue the WU-forecast.php script and find some other method to provide international forecasts for the World template.

Re: MeteoAdvisory

D'Oh.. I forgot to update get-meteoalarm-warning-inc.php to use cURL/https .. the old version was HTTP only.

Please try https://saratoga-weather.org/wxtemplate ... p?sce=view and let me know if that fixes the issue. If it does, I'll release for distribution.
