Hi,
I got the latest version installed and it works perfectly. Only one thing, the Wind Rose do not update itself, even, if I'm not wrong, the web page auto refresh itself every 10 minutes. I have to manually refresh it. Have I missed anything? Thanks.
Hi Bthoven, nice to see you :D
In the link you provided, a big mouth is covering the wind rose, provide the correct link to wBox :D

Hi dazza1223,

I've just checked your pressure trend and it is currently 0.15 mb. As Krzysiek explained in a previous post, you need to have a change of at least 0.2 mb.

You mention a pressure trend tag - I think you mean #presstrend. That particular tag doesn't appear in the "standard" realtime.txt - but the tag #presstrendval does, which is what is used by wbox. So although other webpages of yours may show a different trend, this is because wbox needs a minimum of 0.2 mb change, whereas the other tag indicates the trend regardless of the size.

Hi Krzyslek,
Sorry that was the link to my live version based on your older version that I modified earlier. Your new version is on my testing server which is still local and can't be accessed publicly.

Hi Dazza
Now I understand, everything is OK :D
2 lines means that the pressure in the last 48 hours is kept constant, otherwise the changes are less than ±8hPa, because a change in pressure of ~4hPa per 24 hours is not a significant change. See the drawing from the documentation http://www.andreovia.pl/jedrzejow-pogoda/wbox#wbox_en I referred you to earlier:

Hi Bthoven
How often the wind rose refreshes depends on how often the realmore.txt file is created, maybe that's it?

Maybe you should set it to update like mine 4sec and 5 minutes is to long for the reiltime to take place and that why your wind rose is delaying?

Here is my latest version of wBox.

I have added a few more features, temperature in my barbeque hut, daylight hours (dawn to dusk) works on a percentage same as humidity, Recent Wind Gust (just above wind rose), now using Cumulus moon image, changed forecast wind icons from windbarbs as unfortunately my eyes are showing signs of age and I found them difficult to read.

I dont think I can squeeze much more into the space. :D

Bthoven - it is simple. If you did everything as described then the wBox2 version must work. Maybe start with the basic version and then add your own elements one by one. Check that everything is working properly after each step.

Hi Krzysiek
My eyes are 57 years old but according to my eye doctor they are a lot older.

Having my wBox on a 7 inch screen does not help either. Maybe I need a bigger screen but the one I have sits nicely on my desk just under my main screens so is very tidy.

The wind icons show in different colours as well from blue to green to yellow to orange to red in 13 different colours so I can easiy see the direction and a rough idea of the speed.

Hi Krzysiek,

Thanks. I think it is working properly. My PC went to sleep and woke up; that's why I saw it not updated.
