Cumulus Configuration settings in Settings-weather.php

$SITE['WXtags'] = 'CUtags.php';
This setting specifies the filename of the Cumulus weather tags file. This file is uploaded through Cumulus and contains the current weather data associated with Cumulus HTML tags. The data is loaded in a $WX[] array with the Cumulus tag names used as the key to access the data in the associative array.
$SITE['ajaxScript'] = 'ajaxCUwx.js';
This setting specifies the filename of the AJAX JavaScript that will read the realtime.txt file and update your pages with new data.
Comment out this setting (by placing either # or // in the front of this line) if you do not want AJAX updates active on your website pages.
$SITE['realtimefile'] = './realtime.txt';
This setting specifies the relative file location for the Cumulus realtime.txt file. It is used by the thermometer.php for display of current/high/low temperature graphic.
$SITE['graphImageDir'] = './images/';
This setting specifies the relative file location of the directory containing the Cumulus graph images (used by the wxgraphs.php page)
$SITE['NOAAdir'] = './Reports/';
This setting specifies the relative file location of the NOAA reports files. It is used by the wxnoaaclimatereports.php page.
Note: you will need to configure Cumulus (or your separate FTP software) to update this directory from the c:\Cumulus\\Reports directory with recently changed files.(Note: Cumulus 1.9.2-b1007 or higher required for the NOAA-style reports).
$SITE['conditionsMETAR'] = 'KSJC';
This setting specifies the ICAO/name of the near-by METAR station that will be used to provide current conditions (weather/sky cover) for the ajax-dashboard and ajax-gizmo.
A list of nearby METAR names can be found using the find METAR query script.
Comment out this setting if you do not want a conditions icon and conditions text to display in the ajax-dashboard and ajax-gizmo.
$SITE['overrideRain'] = true;
This setting specifies whether the weather station rain-rate should display the rain words based on the current rain rate.
=false : METAR rain words (if any) will be displayed as current condition.
=true : current station rain rate will set words (as shown below) and rain words direct from METAR are removed. Icon is also set appropriately.
Words and selection criteria:
"Moderate Drizzle" when rain rate is = 0.0 per hour and <#LastRainTipISO> is < 30 minutes ago.
"Light Rain" when rain rate is > 0.0 and < 2.5 mm (0.098 in) per hour
"Moderate Rain" when rain rate is >= 2.5 mm (0.098 in) and < 7.6 mm (0.30 in) per hour
"Heavy Rain" when rain rate is >= 7.6 mm (0.30 in) per hour and < 50 mm (2.0 in) per hour
"Violent Rain" when rain rate is >= 50 mm (2.0 in) per hour
If this setting is ommitted from Settings-weather.php, the default will be assumed as 'true' to enable the function.
If enabled, the rain words from the METAR will be removed, and the above words used based on the current rain rate.
$SITE['feelslike'] = 0;
This setting specifies which temperature will be used for the upper value in the 'Feels Like' display on the dashboard.
=0; will use Heat-Index as the upper temperature (default)
=1; will use Humidex as the upper 'temperature'
=2; will use Apparent Temperature (Australian BOM) as the upper temperature.
The upper temperature will be shown if the current temperature is >= 27C.
Note: the ajaxCUwx.js script must have var useFeelslike = N; with the same value as specified in $SITE['feelslike'] above.
$SITE['DavisVP'] = true;
This setting specifies whether you have a Davis VP/Vue station.
= true means you have a Davis VP/Vue station
= false means you do not have a Davis VW/Vue station and the display of the VP forecast on the ajax-dashboard is suppressed.
$SITE['UV'] = true;
This setting specifies whether your station has a UV sensor.
= true means your station has a UV sensor.
= false means your station does not have a UV sensor which will result in the ajax-dashboard displaying a UV forecast in that area instead of the UV sensor value.
$SITE['SOLAR'] = true;
This setting specifies whether your station has a Solar sensor.
= true means your station has a Solar Radiation sensor.
= false means your station does not have a Solar Radiation sensor which will result in the ajax-dashboard displaying a UV forecast in that area instead of the Solar sensor value.
