You're not wrong :o

For some reason I seem to have put an * in front of the mobile menu id :? I have absolutely no idea why, unless it was a cut'n'paste from some untested page.

All users of new cuMX version

Existing:

Code: Select all

			<!--	Mobile menu	-->
			<div id="*Main_Menu_Mobile" class="w3-bar-block w3-hide w3-hide-large">
Should be:

Code: Select all

			<!--	Mobile menu	-->
			<div id="Main_Menu_Mobile" class="w3-bar-block w3-hide w3-hide-large">
Sorry about that :oops:

Thanks,

Fixed on both sites.

Re daffodil,raindrop.png etc & hatch2, assume there's not reason why I can't move them from root to /images & edit the language file to suit.
Just for the sake of 5 less files in my root.

Just need to also identify where hatch2.jpg is referenced.

Hi

I used to have the dayfile reader on my old cumulus site but after moving to Cumulus MX last week I cant get it working.

I basically dont understand the instructions :bash: ( its me, I am sure the instructions are fine)

http://www.bramptonweather.co.uk/stats.php

This is as far as I have got, clearly not working and no data showing. Any clever folk point me in the right direction please -

Many thanks

When this happens use the developer console by loading it with F12, set it to network and refresh.

In this case you have either failed to load or have a wrong directory for what appears to be all the .css files.

I presume you are referring to http://www.komokaweather.com/cumulusmx/ ... hp?lang=en or also this http://komokaweather.com/weather/betel_ ... maryCU.php

Do you have the correct path in betel_readDayfile.php settings for your site:

Code: Select all

// ************ START * START * START USER VARIBLES ***********************

$this_file_name = basename(__FILE__); // IMPORTANT - for best results this file should be in the SAME directory as the 'holding' page that uses it
$dayfile = 'data/dayfile.txt'; // to work correctly this should be a relative address NOT full url
Enjoy,

For yours it is not likely data/dayfile.txt since you have the script in /Betel and it should be relative to that /Betel folder, possibly "../data/dayfile.txt" depending on your remote file structure.

I have now tried betel/data/dayfile.txt

That doesnt work either

I am clearly missing the point here, cant be that difficult is it

my website is www.bramptonweather.co.uk

I have a folder named "betel" with all the bits in bramptonweather/co.uk/betel

My day file is bramptonweather/co.uk/data/dayfile.tx
The page I am trying to make is bramptonweather/co.uk/stats.php

With the above info are you able see where I am going wrong

many thanks

Like @PaulMy said, your path needs to be ../data/dayfile.txt not betel/data/dayfile.txt

No, it is ../data/dayfile.txt. The ".." takes you "down" from your betel directory, and in to /data.

However, as you say, you need to sort out your CSS errors. I don't actually use this facility so am not able to help with the CSS errors.
