PHP/AJAX Website Template Set - Updates

Note: this page should be used to update V3 AJAX/PHP templates only. Users of the prior V2 Weather-Display AJAX/PHP template set (installations done before 27-Jan-2011) should NOT use this facility for updates, but instead, consider updating their current site to use the V3 templates.
Using these updates with a V2 WD/AJAX/PHP template may cause unexpected results and website malfunctions.

You can use the query form below to see all the changed files in the selected distribution ZIP files sorted by most recent file updated. Use the date you had last downloaded the distributions as the starting date, then all the files updated since that date will be displayed for your Base and Plugin combination.

Checking the "Save selections?" checkbox and clicking on "Check for Updates" button will store your selections in a browser cookie so it will be available the next time you visit this page.
Note: Browser cookies must be enabled to save your selections.

If you would like your site listed as using the templates, please contact me with your weather website URL, location, Base and Plugin used.

The dates in the distribution files are stored using Pacific time (GMT-8hrs). Select the date below with that in mind. You can use the date shown for the Version History (below) for the 'Last Download' date to pick up a specific update (and any more recent additions), otherwise use the date you last downloaded an update to pick up all available updates for your configuration.
