Then why is there options for UTF8 to be turned on or off in Extra web files? :D

Re: Problem with degrees symbol

I just don't get how it works when Cumulus isn't processing the file? As soon as I start it again, the weird chars appear. Another route I tried; I don't have UTF-8 checked in CMX, stopped the processing. Opened up the text files and saved them as ANSI and the degrees symbol works. I started the pro...

Re: Problem with degrees symbol

I'm doing nothing with the files. I have a simple ipcamT.txt which get's processed to ipcam.txt, and then the text get's read my the webcam software. Both files show °C and both files are encoded with UTF-8 BOM (opened in NOTEPAD++) If it was the webcam software, surely the degrees symbol wouldn't s...

Re: Problem with degrees symbol

Yeah sorry. I forgot to put back what I was trying to use as I removed it just to keep 'C' That aside, using ° stays as ° in the output. If I stop CMX from processing the file and manually put the degrees symbol in, it works fine, but as soon as CMX processes the file again, it adds °C to...

Hi Steve

I'm using the .txt file extension.
It is set to UTF-8 as well.

Re: Problem with degrees symbol

Second, correct usage (though little known) is that the degree symbol should not be used. You are supposed to just write "19.7 C" and that nicely avoids all your troubles! I think Cumulus' <#tempunit> just gives you the C or F for that reason? I'm old school. I like to show °C <#tempunit> shows °C ...

Problem with degrees symbol

Hi there! After all the kerfuffle about Wunderground stopping the free API, I suddenly realised IPTimelapse uses it to show the weather data. I then discovered on another forum, that IPTimelapse can read a text file for the weather data. So, I have set up a text file called ipcamT.txt and get CMX to...

Re: WU-forecast.php

Normal service resumed! :(

It doesn't seem to make any difference for me. The file is some times 0 bytes, 18KB, 19KB, 21KB, 23KB and even 50KB. Damn WU.

Re: WU-forecast.php

Quick update. Everything much better. I still get an empty forecast now & then, but instead of 30 times a day, it's just a couple. :)

Re: WU-forecast.php

I seem to suffer so badly with the WU problem. For weeks now, it is breaking 30+ times a day. I check yours, Simon, and it's working for you. I just don't get it?! :( i added a bit of code as I found either my ./cache/WU-forecast-json-0-en.txt would be 0 bytes of incomplete. it still happens from t...

Re: Windows 10 upgrade

I upgraded to that about 10 days ago. No issues for me, fortunately. I haven't had a single issue on Windows 10, with Cumulus or any other software. I must be a lucky one! :lol:

Changed Hosting

Hi I've just changed hosting, and when the moment was right, I changed my domain name to correctly point to the new nameservers. I have a bit of a weird problem.. CMX is doing the updates every 15 minutes (so I know the FTP works) but none of the realtime stuff is uploading. 2018-04-30 20:09:06.395 ...
