Re: Customising the local dashboard

OK, a couple of comments: The 100% width is set by the media query in the first line of the CSS, but it not allowed to go below 800px. If you decrease the width of the browser, you'll see that the text-only columns shrink in width (ie there is a degree of responsiveness) until the 800px width is rea...

Re: Customising the local dashboard

Reviving this from the (semi) dead. John, care to share, at least snippets, of the new index.html and css files? I've been trying to configure this same layout as you did, the getting tripped up on understanding/manipulating the bootstrap css files... Sorry, only just spotted this post. OK, the sit...

Re: Help with choosing a new weather station for 2021

The traditional picture of a VP2 console + logger (working together) provides 4 functions: 1. A receiver for the wireless (or cabled) sensor transmissions from the ISS; 2. Computing various derived values from the raw data such as 2 min or 10 min mean wind speed, daily rainfall etc etc 3. Providing ...

Re: Updating from Oregon WMR200 to Davis Vantage Vue

Now that is a bit of a downer here because we often get high winds and rain together. Anyone else noticed this as a issue? It's inevitable I'm afraid - all-in-one designs all suffer from this limitation. It's just a basic fact of weather monitoring - height is good for optimal wind speed readings b...

Re: Updating from Oregon WMR200 to Davis Vantage Vue

In Davis systems with a console then that contains the pressure sensor and indoor temp/hum. But WLL can obviously be used without a console, ie just ISS + WLL, so WLL is designed also to include pressure sensor and indoor T/H. So depending on exactly how your station is configured then bar and insid...

Re: Failing with Raspberry Pi

Let's not be too hard on the Pi Zero. Remember that it is significantly more powerful than the original Raspberry Pi. I've had a Pi Zero running CMX quite happily, admittedly without a whole long list of web downloads. But the problem I had with the Zero was that the Mono configuration was at least ...

Re: Failing with Raspberry Pi

Just to address the 'which new Pi?' question. Not sure why you would buy a new 3B when 4 is available. No real reason AFAIK not to go for 4. but do aim for the at least the 2GB version and ideally the 4GB for better future-proofing. (8GB gets significantly more expensive and is almost certainly unne...

Couple of CMX questions

Couple of CMX questions if I may - can't quickly spot definitive answers: 1. Is there any reason that CMX can't be used to download archive data from weatherlink.com for a non-local station? This is a scenario where a user might have a station at another location uploading to wl.com, which provides ...

Re: Davis Vantage Pro2 with wireless wind sensors

The supplied U-bolts *just* about stretch to a 50mm pole if you bend them a bit. +1. The pole-mounting bracket does have space to accept wider U-bolts, but the problem is that wider U-bolts are often made from thicker grade steel rod, which doesn't then fit through the bracket's mounting holes. I g...

Re: Prospective Newbie

Just to add a little detail here: A USB logger actually has two modes of operation called (confusingly) USB and serial. You can switch between the two modes using software. So CumulusMX can only use the mode that's called 'Serial' (yes, even though it's a USB connection), whereas the Weatherlink for...

Re: WeatherLink down?

Not seen any other reports of log-in issues today and people are usually pretty quick to contact us. So that's curious. Do I recall you saying that you rebooted the WLL during the previous outage? If so, that would probably explain the gap in history etc. WLL usually does a pretty good job of catchi...

Re: VP not woken - Help for a new user

@mcrossley - this looks like it is using usb rather than serial. Doesn't that cause problems? Not Mark of course, but yes the USBXpress entry in the USB ports list looks suspiciously like the logger being in USBX mode rather than serial. Probably needs the CP210X USB to Serial converter running (fr...
