Cumulis MX New Template

From build 3044 the development baton passed to Mark Crossley. Mark has been responsible for all the Builds since. He has made the code available on GitHub. It is Mark's hope that others will join in this development, but at the very least he welcomes your ideas for future developments (see Cumulus MX Development suggestions).

Cumulis MX New Template

Post by griffo42 »

Should the new template developed by Neil Thomas update automatically in accordance with the set update time frame (in my case every 5 min)? If so, how do I make this happen?

the new layout uses json files and new htm files.

it really depends on what website files you are currently using. read all of the content below to understand what is required or if you want the new or old style layouts.

Be aware this is still 'entry level' coded, although it does address many of the shortcomings of the 'old' standard templates.
Any serious amount of customising or data grab you should pretty much do whatever you did before.
// auto update every 60 seconds, only the index and today pages
So any and every page will have site details and relevant content on page load, but ...
only the index and today pages will subsequently update.
The script loads the json file every 60s, but in your case the json file is updated every 5 min.

All good now re the reloading: thanks @beteljuice and @ConligWX.

Another problem has now emerged. It seems that the forecast which appears on my website (https://www.kstwx.net/cumx/index.htm) is exactly as that which appears on Oaktree Weather's site (https://weather.oaktreewebs.co.uk/index.htm). See screenshots which demonstrate this as well as the current BOM forecast for Carina and my system's settings re the forecast.

Any help to correct will be much appreciated.

Thanks
Keith

@beteljuice. Thanks for your reply. It’s looking like a coincidence. I haven’t touched any code.

They are certainly different at 0950 Saturday AEST here at Carina.

Best wishes
