If you are interested in supporting Cumulus then maybe you would like to contribute to the maintenance of the Wiki? This need not take hours of your time - just a half hour here and there can make a big difference, particularly if many people are doing this. Any contributions are very welcome, whether they involve new content or editing of existing content. It will be very helpful to current and future users of Cumulus software if the Wiki is kept well-maintained and current. If you are interested then please contact forum user saratogaWX and ask for a Wiki account.

Add Lightning to default Web Page

Please DO NOT use this to publish your entire wish. This Forum is for specific suggestions to enhance the usability of Cumulus MX for all users, NOT your personal requirements. Please check this forum and the rejected forum to make sure you are NOT posting a DUPLICATE suggestion. It will be heavily monitored by Admin and Mark Crossley to determine the feasibility and the difficulty of the suggestion. Those Topics that are deemed inadmissible will moved to the rejected Forum. The remaining Topics will be the Accepted list of future developments, and when our voluntary development group adds it to a build, the build number will be added to the Topic title.

Add Lightning to default Web Page

Post by The Dalek Hunter »

I have a GW1000B - one of my sensors is a Ecowitt WH57B lightning detector. Its output is displayed in the Admin Interface.

It would be nice if it could be added to the default webpage.

There are three web tags available <#LightningDistance> <#LightningDistance> and <#LightningStrikesToday> and I am aware these need to be added to the default template but it is WAY above my skill set to figure out how to do the :? :? :? :?

Personally I think it is a bit too niche to be added to the default web page for everyone, maybe as an optional update at some point.

But it could be an optional add-on like solar radiation and UV already are, couldn't it ? (tag/un-tag)
That would serve everybody.
