Gauges Installation

Post by Dave-Bath »

Hi everyone.
I am an having trouble with the steel gauges install partly due to my age(i'm to old to be a whizz kid) and i keep getting confused with the instructions.
Could some kind soul tell me which files to upload to my website and which ones go to my computer. I know it might be simple to alot of you but us older ones take a while to get the brain working!
Living in hope.
Thanks in advance Dave.

Dave,

Copy these two to your \Cumulus\web\ directory (on your computer): realtimegaugesT.txt and gauges-ssT.htm.

The gauges-ssT.htm file is processed in a similar manner as the other template files. The realtimegaugesT file is processed similar to the realtime file.

Copy the scripts, css, and font folder to your website directory; i.e, where your other files are on your webserver.

Hope this helps,
Kerry

and note that the gauges-ssT.htm file only needs to be processed and uploaded at least once - then, you can disable the process/upload in the Cumulus internet files screen.

Thanks for your help Kerry & Mark.
Have done as instructions say but i guess i'm just to old for this programming.
Cannot get my head around page 2 of instructions, ss gauges not showing on website.
Have got to the banging head against wall stage! Do not want to mess up website altogether.

Dave,

Are you following the instructions from the steel series radar thread? If so, those instructions only apply to the radar plot gauge and may be the source of your confusion.
All you need to follow is what Mark and I posted in this thread.
