ec-forecast.php V4.03 available to fix missing icons display

Post by saratogaWX » Thu 31 Aug 2017 1:31 pm

ec-forecast.php V4.03 is now available to fix the icon display issues with the EC website changes on 29-Aug-2017.

Please note that this is a quick fix job (since I'm on vacation), so some functionality is not implemented:
1) the '*' for Abnormal temperature trends is not working
2) only the long Day is displayed for the icons (short day or day Mon is not implemented)

Saratoga template users: download using the update tool with a query for Base-Canada, Plugin-*, 31-Aug-2017

Standalone users: download from script page

After the vacation, I'll do a rewrite of the script to use the XML feeds from the EC which (as Wim notes) is MUCH more stable than the existing page-scraper.

Best regards,
