    1. As far as I understand the code, the content in the cache is used if it has not expired. This means, that if there is content in the cache (fetched by e.g. check-fetch-times) it should be used if used within expiry time. That would mean, I would have to see the warning on the page if the cache content is valid. This does not happen at all while sometimes I manage to get valid html in the cache by check-fetch-times.
    2. with 'is not handled correctly' I mean that the warning does not show on the wxadvisory-page if the cache content is valid (see point 1)
    3. KNMI/temis.nl has been known to block IP addresses : I am not blocked because I get the info after 60-70 seconds. Both from the PHP-scripts and in my browser. I agree it seems a problem at temis. Might have to do with CDN as you have lightning fast results and I have to wait 60-70 seconds.
    4. I wait for temis first now, then I look again at meteoalarm which may have a similar problem (but I would appreciate it if you could look into point 1 and 2)
    Thnx so far.

    Thanks for the elaboration about the issue.

    Your Settings.php entry of

    Code: Select all

    $SITE['EUwarningURL']    = 'https://www.meteoalarm.eu/ne_NL/0/0/NL-Nederland.html';
    actually points to an area list of zones instead of a specific zone, so the HTML returned from that area list may not be parsed correctly by the script (which was designed for a specific zone). You should pick one of the areas to use for your URL in that setting to have the get-meteoalarm-warning-inc.php script operate properly.

    That may be the underlying cause of the issues with display (ignoring the on-again/off-again timeouts to meteoalarm.eu).

    Aha, indeed. That is solved than.
    This single area requirement was not clear to me.
    At least we can mark this one as solved. This leaves only the time-outs.

    I'll be back with the temis.nl comment.

    Thnx, Hans

    I still had this open topic to reply to, open already for 4 weeks. Unfortunately temis.nl did not reply to my question why the delays (which lead to time-outs for us). However the situation has much improved and I have seen no time-outs since roughly three weeks. So the assumption it was on the network side (probably their side) seems to be correct. I have no further problems, everything works fine. Thanks for thinking with me.

    Best,
