Hi,

it is possible to display the rain within the current hour, so that the rain that has fallen is always reset to zero at the full hour?

for example:
The Rain started to fall at 15:15 Uhr, at 16 Uhr the counter should be reset to zero, i.e. the counter should count from full hour to full hour.

many thanks.
Frank

Yes, there's a webtag for that. It is:

Code: Select all

<#rhour>
More about webtags in the wiki.

You may be right - I tend to use that webtag in an hourly tweet, sent at the top of the hour :)

There is no way of doing this in Cumulus, you would have to use the data provided and record the total at the top of each hour and subtract that from the current total in your own web site code.
