Setting Up WeatherCat

Post by nineback » Mon Sep 18, 2017 6:45 pm

Trying to set up WeatherCat on my MAc instead of WD that I have been using on my Windows machine. In WeatherCat is asks for a URL and Password. I assume the URL is the link to my web page.

HTTP://www.kq5s.com/template

I also assume the Password that Weathercat ask for is the update password in the template.

When I enter these into the WeatherCat Meteotemplate page and hit start I get:

=========================================
html>
<head>
<title>KQ5S Weather</title>
</head>
<body>

</body>
<script>
isMobile = mobileCheck();
isTablet = mobileTabletCheck();
screenWidth = screen.width;

if(screenWidth >= 1200){
window.location = "indexDesktop.php";
}
else if(screenWidth < 900){
window.location = "indexMobile.php";
}
else{
check = mobileTabletCheck();
if(check){
window.location = "indexMobile.php";
}
else{
window.location = "indexDesktop.php";
}
}

function mobileCheck(){
var check = false;
(function(a){if(/(android|bb\d+|meego).+mobile|avantgo|bada\/|blackberry|blazer|compal|elaine|fennec|hiptop|iemobile|ip(hone|od)|iris|kindle|lge |maemo|midp|mmp|mobile.+firefox|netfront|opera m(ob|in)i|palm( os)?|phone|p(ixi|re)\/|plucker|pocket|psp|series(4|6)0|symbian|treo|up\.(browser|link)|vodafone|wap|windows ce|xda|xiino/i.test(a)||/1207|6310|6590|3gso|4thp|50[1-6]i|770s|802s|a wa|abac|ac(er|oo|s\-)|ai(...

=====================================================

Any idea what is going on? The upload to WU is working fine.

Thanks,
Tom

The URL you need to provide is not the index but the api.php in your template root

Thanks. That did it. Now I have to figure out how to get the webcam images uploaded? He provides a simple check mark to upload to WU but not to a website.

Thanks again.

Hi Tom,
take a look at the Manual page 174 and following or see the Wiki webcam section. This is the short way. ;)

The long way: Enable Simple or Custom Web in WeatherCat (How To again needs a look into the manual) then your webcam picture will be uploaded to your server. From here you can link it to Meteotemplate, for example

Code: Select all

<img src="www.yourwebspace.com/webcam.jpg" alt="Webcam picture">
Hope this helps,
Reinhard
