Gauges page in interface

Post by sfws »

I'm sure everybody knows this interface page is based on Steel Series library that Mark introduced long before Cumulus 3 existed.

If you are a MX user who has just downloaded the MX package as provided, without having read up about Steel Series, and you feel you might do some user interface customisation, then this post might give you some useful ideas towards achieving your plan.

Read more about Steel Series options in the section of forum viewforum.php?f=21 devoted to that feature. MX user interface includes (currently) version 2.5.5 of relevant Steel Series scripts, just in case you look at material related to earlier or later versions. The web pages provided by MX ( and BCJKiwi's web pages - see viewtopic.php?f=18&t=17845) use the later version 2.7.3, so don't try to apply the files with modifications as attached to the web pages, those files are only for the user interface.

Therefore, there are a lot of customisation options available in the script \CumulusMX\interface\lib\steelseries\scripts\gauges.js

showIndoorTempHum can be changed from true to false if you don't want your interface to remind you of indoor/outdoor differences. This is only way to do this.

Similarly, you can remove gauges that you don't have sensors for:
showUvGauge : false, Hides the UV Index gauge
showSolarGauge : false, Hides the Solar gauge
The trouble with that is you are left with ugly empty blocks (see screenshot), to remove those (see other screenshot) you have to edit the webpage \CumulusMX\interface\gauges.html. For this reason, I don't think editing gauges.js is useful for removing those 2 gauges, I recommend editing the HTML file.

The attachment contains the two files referenced above after I edited them and the two screen images that illustrate what I mean. (The background on my screen was taken on a sunny day before I moved my transmitter/temperature/humidity sensor which is now close to the wind vane in a new enclosure described in another topic).
You do not have the required permissions to view the files attached to this post.

Your first link ( viewtopic.php?f=21 ) leads to nowhere, better modify. ;)

The link as typed "viewforum.php?f=21"
is the correct steel series index sub-forum page. It works if you type it into your browser.

It does not.
And if I click on it I get :
The requested topic does not exist.

Don't contradict me.
Do a copy link from the entry in the post, so you get the full URL and put that in your browser. It works.

If you stupidly only typed the bit of the URL that shows in any post, instead of copying the link, of course it won't work in a browser.

If you are claiming the browser produced that message, the browser does not know anything about topics to generate that message.

If you are saying that the forum software can't handle its own URLs, and it produces that message, that is not my problem.

Ahem chaps. I have fixed it. sfws used a relative link whereas the link in a topic requires the full empirical link

Code: Select all

David, NO, I used the full link exactly as in your code box, but as you can see from your post, it shows as a relative link as you put it. Now you have fixed it, my original (unedited) links work correctly; as Hans and you can test for yourself.

I beg to differ I edited it but it is not worth arguing about.
