Cumulus toolbox do i need, so that the avatar.gif is being updated automatically every 10 minutes for example?
In 'Setup' select the 'Remote Commands' tab and click 'Add'. Make sure 'HTTP address' is selected in the drop down, and put the address of your PHP file in the box after the 'http://'. Select 'hourly' from the 'Frequency' drop down, and click 'Save' (optionally doing a test first by clicking 'execute now').
Thanks that works. But is it possible to update more often than just once an hour?


Best Regards

Would my solution of making the script look 'like' a gif not work, then it is 'fresh every time you look at it!

I have downloaded the avatar and it works: http://www.tottonweather.co.uk/avatar-1.0.php
However despite scouring the forum and various scripts, not been able to find a solution to auto refreshing it that works. :bash: I may also want to use it in an iframe on a new site I have nearly completed. Any help appreciated!
