Weather Blues gauges not working

Hi,
I am trying to setup Weather Blues 2.2, it is partly working but I cannot get the gauges working, no movement on the four outer gauges. The two real-time work on my lap top but not on the iPad,I am hoping some thing is in the wrong location and is simple to sort out.

Raspberry pi and CumulusMX v3050.

Hi Pete,
I think the WB2 templates are designed around the original Cumulus and not for Cumulus MX. Certainlky the graphs / trends do not work as these were images created in Cumulus whereas now they are json files which need Highcharts to run.

As for the gauges it may be a similar issue. I will try set up WB2 using MX on my test server and let you know.

An alternative and the one a lot of people use is Mark Crossleys Steel Series gauges. There is a section dedicated to them here on the forum and always lots of people to help you out.

Big Daddy is correct this template was designed around Cumulus 1 which produced the dials and graphs on the Gauges page as images. Cumulus MX does not do this but the middle two gauges work because they use the realtime file.

You either have to switch to Cumulus 1 which only runs on Windows computers or completely redesign this page to work from Cumulus MX data streams.

Thanks for the replies,I will give that one a miss, it’s a shame as it worked well on the original version. I will look at other templates and see if I can find one I like.

Thanks Pete
