"Weather Station" showing wrong data. Widget is OK.

Post by stimas » Wed 12 Nov 2014 9:26 am

Hi,
I have a problem with my "Weather Station" on my Android device. My Widget shows correct information, but if I start "Weather Station", it shows me old data.
Any idea what causes this? Shouldn't it show the same? The "location URL" is the same (can't be set different...?).

I'm running "Weather Station" 3.7.
Thanks.

I’m giving up soon… If no one has a good suggestion how to solve this issue.
The file Realtime.txt updates locally on the computer that runs Cumulus.
Same file is also copied (FTP) to my web hotel. I cannot see that the Realtime.XML changes.
I’m not sure how these two files are connected…

Another thing: - if I tests with different files… Is it enough to update these two files locally and the Cumulus software copies them to my FTP server? Or do I have to transfer them with a FTP software?

It might have been better to post in the thread for the app that you're using, as there have been a number of them. What typically seems to happen, though, is that someone writes one and then after a while they seem to lose interest and stop supporting it. If you post in the thread for the app, another user may spot your post and be able to help.

To answer your question about how realtime.txt and realtime.xml are related, the answer is that they are not related at all. The first is a file automatically created and uploaded by Cumulus, and the second is not a Cumulus file at all, but a third-party file which you would have to add to the 'files' tab of the internet settings in Cumulus.

Thanks for you reply Steve,
I had contact with Ales (Weather Station) and he couldn't help and told me to post it here.

I give up! I'll try to look at it later.
