@kocher: No, on second thought, It can be the cause, but I am not sure.
Can you send the cumulusutils.log file (be sure it is the one from the website generation moment and not from a later run).

Hi Paul, yes, it looks good, thanks. But the user menu must be fixed to fit the new menu technique. Small step etc... ;)

Good afternoon Hans

Indeed, after doing what you tell me, there has been no change.

I attach the file "cumulusutils.log"
You do not have the required permissions to view the files attached to this post.

The logfile says:

Code: Select all

2020-04-26 19:06:03.483  MapsOn: Adding Station: San Sebastian - Arriola
2020-04-26 19:06:03.483 Maps->MapsOn: No website for station - station not added!!
2020-04-26 19:06:03.483 Maps->MapsOn: Website is compulsory so exit here!!
This is only possible if the string which holds the website is empty.
Could you send me your cumulusutils.ini (at least the section [Maps])

You're right.

Yesterday I was trying to automate the FTP upload (which I haven't been able to) and I left that string empty. :oops:

OK. That is solved. :D
Now, let's go via PM and try to solve the FTP if you wish. Could you send me the FTP section of cumulus.ini (without the un/pw).

Goodnight

I have managed to automate the FTP upload of the files once a day, using "System Scheduler", so this issue is solved,

Also, everything seems to be working properly:

Thank you very much Hans :D

@kocher:
Very good that you can work with the system, but it really should work with the internal FTP as well.
As it works with every body, it should work in your situation too.

This looks like a suitable thread :o
It would be useful if Cumulus web tags can be used in cumulusutils.ini
e.g.
HeaderLeftText=The meteorological day used ends at <#rollovertime>.

Yes, good idea.

It means free texts need to be parsed for webtags or maybe I find some other way to do this.
And which free texts can be used? Would that only be inifile parameters or also complete text files (e.g. userreports)?

I'll think about how to fill this in.
You'll see something around some time.

Any more ideas about this?

Thanks!
As a start, free text with embedded web tags in the ini file e.g.
HeaderLeftText=&nbsp;The meteorological day used ends at <#rollovertime>.
HeaderRightText=Dawn: <#dawn>&#9;Dusk: <#dusk>&#9;Daylight: <#daylightlength>&#9;Day length: <#daylength>
Maybe some sanity checks to reduce the risk of evil code?
