a rather daft and not very nice comment about a member who posted a good deal of useful info into the site, re volcanoes and also the weather in Shetland. give him my regards please?

was getting a hard time off people with his volcano thread. wasn't appreciated enough for the hard work he put into the forum.

Not the best place to add this i know paul, but i would just like to say i think this new thread in the model area is going to be great and help those who want to know what's going on fast 9if like me

Was a brief slowdown/outage in terms of the files being sent to us by the met office - looks alright now but will get hold of them in a hurry if anything goes awry again!

Because the server we're pulling the data from is very slow this evening, wz prob get it from somewhere else & or don't use the hi-res data.

I'm not totally clear what you're meaning, but yes you can post images into your posts - you can either upload them (click more reply options in the post box to get the uploader), or you can click the image icon in the post editor and paste in the address of the image. The image needs to be a png, gif or jpg, and can't be dynamic.

 

There's some more info under 'posting' in the help pages too :)

Hi, have you registered an account for Netweather Extra - it's separate to the forum so won't take your username and password from here :)

That's why then just thought it would be the same thanks very much :-)

Hi Gangan, there is some info on this over in the help files here (under posting):

https://forum.netweather.tv/index.php?app=core&module=help

 

But in short, on the post editor, if you click the more reply options button you'll see there's an uploader at the bottom, clicking that will allow you to choose a photo from your computer to upload and add to your post.

Once it's uploaded, you'll see an add to post link above the upload button, which you can click to place the photo into your post wherever the cursor is. 

 

Hope that helps :)

 

Paul

Hiya, can I comment & seek some reasoning behind why the following happens.

When stepping through the radar time sequence, you arrive at a point where the next four updates are projected.

I have noticed that on many occasions certainly yesterday AND today, when you step through the four future time steps, they take any precipitation on a different path to the historical mapping. Yesterday rain showers were coming in from the west up to the future time step, and it project this rain to suddenly change course & head northwards.

Again this morning, rain across the channel is heading SE, run the future time step and it suddenly changes to NE.

How are the future time steps produced?

Hi,

 

I'm having issues Private Messaging other users on the forum. It says that the other user cannot send/receive messages. Just wondering if there is any other way I can contact them? Both are new users with 1 post each.

 

Thanks,

Mike.

Hi Mike

 

New members do not gain the ability to send or receive private messages until they have posted a handful of times.  This avoids previously experienced problems with spammers infiltrating innocent members' in-boxes.  The only solution is to view the member in question's profile.  If you hover over their photo or name, click view profile.  A screen will appear similar to your own:

 

https://forum.netweather.tv/user/11872-mikeofmacc/

 

The second black heading is 'contact information' and the member may have chosen to advertise a website they run or even show their email address here.  If that is not the case, then unfortunately you will have to wait until the member in question has posted some more on the forum.

I've got that problm again, which affects tablets. I'm using an 8.3" tablet and the modern skin renders it as the mobile site - which i find highly annoying!

 

You made a workaround on the old skin, so it renders the full site. If you managed that, how come the modern skin cannot be fixed to do it? This has knock-on effects too, when i go back to using my phone, i have the old netweather full size skin in place, so i have to change it back, to use the site properly. Then, when i'm back on the tablet, i have to change it all again- it goes on and on!

 

Ideally, i would love the modern skin to work on smaller tablets, both 16:9 and 4:3 aspect ratios.

 

If the above cannot be done, is there a way i can have multiple devices saving their own cookies so i don't have to have the same skin on all devices?

 

Cheers.

A quick response for you Mapantz

 

The modern skin is responsive, so doesn't have a mobile version, it's basically designed to load which ever style best fits the screen size it's being displayed on.

 

We've checked on a couple of tablets and both show the standard desktop.  Mine is a 7" android version.

 

Can you let me know which tablet you are using please and what resolution it has (if you know), that might help narrow it down.  A lower res screen could be behind the problem.
