The problem with the 'Small Weather Slogan Goes Here' being shifted to the left is cause by the CSS line

Code: Select all

h2{ padding-left: 0px; }
at the top of the 'infos.php' script/template - I know why that 'h2' is being modified but then by being set to that value it not only affect the information further down on the page but also the text in the header.

One way to correct the problem is to slightly modify the CSS code to:

Code: Select all

#right_h h2{ padding-left: 0px; }

Hi Dark,

Ypur problem is different as you want to strech your page.
This one is a little weird, as it is the left colomn who give length.
Then, find this line in Today page:

<img style="padding:0px 0px 240px 30px" title="" alt="" src="images/today.gif">

and simply ajust 240px to something bigger!

For Yesterday page, as the word yesterday is longer, you
have again to change 3rd number (20px this time).

Little note: When you have 4 numbers, it means 4 sides, begining
with top (clockwise: top - right - bottom - left). . Sometimes,
you'll see only 2 numbers meaning: top - bottom and
Second number as left - right.

Hope this help

Best regards,
Jacques

Just a quick note to say thanks for the templates :clap:
I have been having fun over this long weekend "thanks to our Qween"
and spent the time installing Weather Blues and working out how to add
Steel seris gauges into it and making up my own set of forcast images.

Have a look, The main changes are to my gauges page

Re: Weather Blues Template preview / UV Graph

Post by avoorpool » Tue 05 Jun 2012 10:30 pm

Hi,

I'm trying to get the newly added graphs in Cumulus into my Weather Blues template.
I resized the uvsm.png into 150 x 100, saved it and uploaded to server. (in the mean time changed the "vcontainer" in trends.css to a larger number (230 px).
However, after the regular upload (every 10 mins) the uvsm image (thumb) has resized to its original 720 x 288 (and of course it doesn't fit int the template anymore....

Any suggstions?
Thanks,

Arthur

If that's what you've set the thumb size to, what is the main pic size !

You still are not giving us any links or code snippets Arthur ....

Original uvsm.png: 720 x 288
Changed in thumb size (like all others in graphs to 150 x 100
Upload to server -> image OK in template.
Wait or manual upload image/uvsm.png
Image in template changed back to 720 x 288
(you can see the one snap shot shows correct image BEFORE upload.......)
html settings in trends are the same as all other 9 graps pictures. (changed it temporarily to avoid big image in template).

Cheers,

Arthur

OK, so far so good.
Must have been a corrupt (.png) file.
Changed the extension into a .jpg thumb image (size 150 x 100) and this one remains in the correct size, even after several uploads.
(Had the same issue with solarsm.png image).
Now see if the graph indeed updates when tomorrow the sun is out again........Timewise it does, since the x-axis is up to date in the correct hour setting.

Cheers,

Arthur

Either it is "hearing" or "reading" :D
[iOriginal uvsm.png: 720 x 288
Changed in thumb size (like all others in graphs to 150 x 100][/i]
Since updating to 1.9.3 (1036) it's all the way it should be......

Hello to all,

Not too sure what I've done wrong with my site (I thought I'd followed the install instructions to the letter) but it does not seem to be displaying as expected.

If you have the time, could someone have a look and point me in the right direction, as I seem to be currently going round in circles with ths.

Much appreciated

Mark

Mark, unfortunately, you will have to re-read the installation instructions for the Weather Blues templates.

A hint: It appears that the cascading style sheets (those with the 'css' extension) are nowhere to be found... :roll:
