    Latest (final) Cumulus version

    Didn't want to bother Brian with this, but has anyone noticed any problem with the rainfall module for 3 December version?

    I am getting strange values for yesterday's rainfall. For example it is currently showing 0.591mm (https://claydonsweather.org.uk/CU). We have not experienced rain for several days and my hardware only records in 0.3mm intervals anyway.

    Just spotted the problem: -

    rainfall.php line 16, change variable $weatherflow to $weather

    However this correction shows an empty display for zero rainfall so need to have a closer look.

    OK solved the problem.

    rainfall.php. Change the lines 16 to 18 to this: -

    Code: Select all

    <?php echo "Yesterday<br>";echo "<rainblue>",$weather["rainydmax"],"</rainblue>";
    if($weather["rain_units"]=="mm"){echo "&nbsp;<raingrey>".$weather["rain_units"]."</raingrey>";}
    else echo " <grey>in</grey>";?>
    This now gives a correct display of 0.0mm for zero rain yesterday.
