HTML

I have been loving and using WW for a long time, and started tapping into the HTML for display on a touch screen in my foyer. The new build does not display correctly in Firefox, which I use as my front-end app.

If anyone else is doing something similar (or wants to), please chime in. If I figure it out, I’ll report it here.

I would like to have some weather information on our homepage. I have used Weather Watcher for a while and like it format etc. Is it possible to have a HTML version of it so that it displays easy. All acknowledgements would be made, with links to this site etc.

Thanks in advance

RMA, this is the easiest way to add weather to your website:

[?] WW creates HTLM coded pages which are displayed in a browser, IE. What exactly are you asking? [?] Are you referring to something like this? http://www.singerscreations.com/Branding.asp

I would like a bit more detailed weather information than what they provide with their free insert.

Is there a way to create your own HTML that pulls the data you want from their site?

Yes, but you have to know how to program :)

Branding would be fine, but I need the info to be available on our website eg in HTML. Can I have a web version created that allows it to display in our new website that we’re creating?

Or can the HTML coded pages that WW creates be used to display on the website?

You could use the Weather Watcher Export feature. The only problem is figuring out how to get the exported file onto your website.

Money can be exchanged for goods :slight_smile:

What I’m saying is can/could it be done?

Something like that. But would be nice to be automated because there is nothing worse than an out-of-date website.

Agreed. The best way to do it would be to custom code it into your website.

Are you nominating your services? Or suggesting what I should do?

Please e-mail me at [email=Mike@SingersCreations.com]Mike@SingersCreations.com[/email]. Send me a link to your website and let me know exactly which data you want to display on your website.

RMA, you could put a link on your website to your WW skin’s html code. If you use only the Classic icons it will be viewable on any browser. That approach would always display the weather at that point in time.

If you develop a webpage frame you could create a javascript in one frame to automatically display your WW skin’s html page in the other frame on a regular basis. Thus keeping the display current.

So, in answer to your question, yes, it would appear that it can be done.

Mike, I suspect the website he wants to modify is this one:

It would be good if WW could auto export and be able to upload to FTP.

Well, there are programs that will auto update files to an ftp server that could be used to auto upload Weather Watcher’s current.html file. Do a google search for them like this:

http://www.google.com/search?query=ftp% … oad&num=10

Many hits and very inexpensive.

You need to preupload the skin’s sub-folders and use only the Classic icons but that approach should work with a minimum of effort and investment. [:)]

Thanks EdP. I will look into that.

I have also emailed Mike as per his request.

Cheers RMA

I just tried looking at my WW through my browser (c:\prog files\ww)

What page do I use to get it to display in the broswer? I can see the templates etc but not actually get any info.

Doesn’t matter. I found it. Was only browsing the ‘classic’ area, not the ‘splendid’ folders.

Hey, to get back to the original topic and stuff, in reply to EdP, the main reason the styles don’t do the job of showing the pictures in firefox is that FF and IE handle the fixed background attachment similar, so removing this will do the trick;

STYLE="background-image: url(Images/Thermometer/Bottom2.gif); background-repeat: no-repeat; background-attachment: fixed;"

is changed to

STYLE="background-image: url(Images/Thermometer/Bottom2.gif); background-repeat: no-repeat;"

or even the shorthand, that does the exact same

STYLE="background: url(Images/Thermometer/Bottom2.gif) no-repeat;"

in case you’d need a background color and/or postioning too, just add it in like this:

STYLE="background: #FFFFFF url(Images/Thermometer/Bottom2.gif) top left no-repeat;"

Hope that clarified some things, just stumbled upon it…
And to make it really neat, you should remove the “fixed” property from all three; Thermometer bottom, wind gauge and barometer.
