Problems with php-script - weatherinfo from de.weather.com
« on: June 01, 2005, 08:21:08 AM »
Hey uk_skinner,

some people in the German forum are having problems with the
de_weather_script. Seems to be a problem with the layout or other
urls on the de.weather.com-site, because I'm getting textes with
"error 404" in the city.txt.

Would be nice, if you can take a look .....

http://tpfans.com/rss/weather_test_de.php?Citycode=77723

(with "Postleitzahl" like zipcode in US)

http://tpfans.com/rss/weather_test_de.php?Citycode=GMXX0039

(with citycode)

Regards Broesel

I will take a look.  Again, my main computer is not available yet.  Please be patient.

Edit:  That is odd..Is the site down?  I could not access http://de.weather.com/weather/local/GMXX0007   :doh:  :knownot:

Edit:  Ok the site was back but all the keywords were different.  I need some time to re-do the PHP.  Broesel, could you please pass this information to German site.  Thanks.

I checked the site using FireFox and IE, both seem to be working fine to me.  What error are you getting with FireFox?

Jim:

  Thanks.
  Oddly, it was fine again.
  My main computer was just upgrade from 2000 to xp professional and I am experiencing odd beheavior.  The Firefox did not give me the error, instead, it was the site gave me the error.  Although no proof, I suspected the de.weather.com was doing something at their site.  For some reason, the Firefox broswer was blocked/rejected from time to time.  I will test more..

Hey uk_skinner, I just tested both links I gave you, and it seems to work
again. Maybe they did do something at the site or had problems.
Can you see the script working too, or did you do something at the
script, that it works ageain ?

There were indeed some difference there.  So, the old script probably will not work either.  

I think I will be monitoring this site for few days and make the new script once it is "stable".  Please pass this information to German site.  Thanks.

Thanks, broesel.

Could you please check this for me?
If you go to this http://de.weather.com/weather/tenday/GMXX0007?day=3&vert=WeatherCity&pres=Berlin%2C+Deutschland#day
, what do you see?

I saw the forecast text for "Tag"(Day) and "Nacht"(night) are "English" not "German".  I did not recall I saw this before when I wrote the script.  

 :think:

Yes, I see that too:

Tag  Light Rain Max:  19°C
Wind: aus dem W mit 18 km/h
Niederschl. Wahrsch.: 60 %
Durchschn. Luftfeuchtigkeit: 64 %
 
Nacht  Light Rain Min:  10°C
Wind: aus dem W mit 13 km/h
Niederschl. Wahrsch.: 60 %
Durchschn. Luftfeuchtigkeit: 73 %

Didn't see that before too ??? Don't know, what's the matter ...

Pikkko,

Are your serie-numbers correct? Last years several picture-numbers have been changed.

Take a look here for the right numbers:

the icons and numbers i use are the same than i used last week, and there they worked properly
and i think it might not be the wrong numbers, because it shows exactly the same icon for rainprobabilty 0% and 40% (raining cloud)

EDIT: i now tried three different weathericon-series, they show all the very same, but wrong!!!

Pikkko, I'm very sorry for you, I don't know what other reasons there are for your not right working text/pictures... I hope some other members can help you out of these problems!
