Yet Another Dayfile Reader (PHP)

Release..V7.1 Fully php7 compliant (?)
MAJOR CHANGES TO ALL THINGS 'SUN' RELATED
Now able to cope with solar kit upgrades / failures.
Sunshine bar chart can now show theoretical available hours, and graph 'max' is settable.

>Large< . . . . . . >750 px wide< . . . . . . >700 px wide< with buttons ...>700 px wide< with dropdown

You should be happy with general logic and PHP.
You should be uploading your dayfile.txt to 'the web' on a regular basis.
You should have a good understanding of your own data and spot any anomalies or glitches.
You should be able to follow comments and have little (If any) instruction ! - Cumulus, saratogaWX and WeatherByYou examples in "How To" file.

It can be used as a stand-alone or dropped into a suitable site template.
It can 'read' saratogaWX templates for language and $SITE Units Of Measure decisions.
It can 'read' Weather By You templates for language decisions.

I have broken the layout when I add my .css (which has some same names in it) and reduce width in this q&d include page here.
I had to add a font size to '#table_container table td,table th' as data table font remained large.

Functionality is spot on, data totals/averages are correct (compare with my page from db) - I would just need to sort out styling.
I only removed 'UV' and altered menu_split number.

Very nice, BTW!

@ jdc

Your columns are too narrow (or font too large !)
See baro entries (table 'breaks' container width) or where * has been added (table cells wrap)

In YOUR table_name css you need to remove your height attribute.
BTW - Your baro seems to be absolute from 18th Dec ?

I need to modify the menu 'break' code - it has given you an extra line although there is nothing to be put there.

Thanks a heap!
I have been looking at others who had similar with great admiration and dreamed that I could to. You have made my day!

Test page http://members.iinet.net.au/~nossis/weather/basic.php

I will see if I am clever enough to adjust the colorings. We get a bit hot here.

Lost the anemometer in 2013 as the data shows.
Also will investigate why not getting UV index values, had the instrument as of early 2013.
