Hi Billy, saw you installed the patch version and it did not work. Interesting, so I debugged the file on my own system and found it: it's the single quote in Olthwaite's.
I had this before in the other graphs - it's the subtitle feature and should have provided for it :bash: . Sorry. Patched version enclosed, again if it works, I push it out in a release. And yes, I have good confidence. :|

Bingo! :D I thought it was something to do with my data and had started to experiment - but didn't think of that. I am most grateful for all your efforts.

And thank you for your stamina. :D
I'll get the release out (some additional improvements added).

Good. A minor thing you might want to consider is the navigation in NOAA reports. After first loading the page I use the drop down box to select months, months past May are not available (as expected) but then using the drop down box for years and going to another year, the limit on months remains.

indeed, it does so with the drop down. Not so if you go prev/next year :?
I'll look into it.

I've run out of steam here but have accomplished pretty much the basics so herewith my current version of a Cumulusutils site - although the colours are a work in progress!
Nonetheless, I'm happy :D.

Note the small change in the address: https://tillyspaws.com/utils/index.html

Once again, many thanks for your help in problem solving to get to here.

That looks really nice colouring!, even on the phone.
Could you publish the colour settings in the thread on user settings? I'll make that one sticky like the language thread. Could not get to your site through the map though, you probably have to adjust the address in the ini.

Nice work.
Out of steam but hope not exhausted :clap:

I'm pleased you like it. As for the map, I updated the .ini and it works for me so please let me know if you continue to have a problem. I'll publish the colours shortly.

@billy: one thing to round off your installation - do you have an explanation why the WindRose only has data in 2019/2020 while you apparently have data from 2015 onwards?

I do ;) . The monthly files for 2015-2018 were not in the data folder. They are now

Great :)

But what happens every year in May? That's pretty extraordinary?
You have on average very little wind btw (not above 10 km/h) or is that equipment? :?
It does not conform to the YADR data - if you run a CheckOnly and check the logfile, does data return error messages?

Anyway, some analysis needed, if you have the time for it :lol:

Good spotting! It's only 2016. I had a connection issue and forgot to tidy that up! I will re-introduce it to my to-do list :groan:

I don't focus on wind - although we did have a gust of about 45 km/h this week. Surrounded by large trees and my mast is short so the wind data are pretty dodgy.
