Discussion and questions about Cumulus weather station software version 1. This section and its subforums are the main place to get help with Cumulus. Anything which is not specific to the type of weather station goes in here; for anything specific to a type of weather station, please use the appropriate subforum. Use the 'website development' section for any questions relating to creating or running a web site for Cumulus data. Discussion of the stations themselves in these sections is fine.

Cumulus Banner background

Post by griffo42 » Sat 09 Jun 2018 9:43 am

Hi

Is someone able to tell me how to add a background picture to the banner that I have in place. I did find a post which is some 7/8 years old but I couldn’t get it to work

Thanks

You’ll need to tell us which banner you are talking about. On the website linked from your signature, you just have the default Cumulus hillside and bird image. You can change that by just placing a different *.jpg in the directory.

Hi Keith,
I presume you are referring to your signature banner which is one of the TNET projects. In mine I have added at line 201 of the script

Code: Select all

// The line below is for the background image, which must be placed in the same directory as the banner.php script
 $baseimg = imagecreatefromjpeg("komokaimage1.jpg");

   imagecopy($im,$baseimg,0,0,0,0,$SITE['image_width'], $SITE['image_height']);
   imagedestroy($baseimg);
Enjoy,
Paul

You're very welcome Keith.

p.s. I'll need to check your site regularly as our son and his family live in Brisbane...

Enjoy,
Paul

Hi Paul

If it will be more convenient to you, I won’t mind your adding my site to the list you show on yours. I see the other Aussie site is in Adelaide which is quite a distance from Brisbane.

Best. Wishes
