The first Beta release of my new Alternative Dashboard version 6.00 B1 is now ready for beta testing by those that have some good experience with betas. I have not written any extensive instructions yet and there are a lot of changes that need to be done. Please don’t try to install it yet if you don’t have a lot of patience!
Whats New in 6.00?
Updated and expanded AjaxWDwx.js file based on version 9.11 from Bashewa Weather
A few more testtags to add in
A new config file for Alt-Dashboard6
New Temperature section with Large Temp, high/low and Station Records
New Current Conditions Section with Large views of Wind, Rain/snow and Current Conditions
Quick View Forecast at the top with Fire Danger under the forecast
Expanded Liquid Precipitation section with auto breakout of storm readings when raining
3rd row center can be either Lightning or Snow. Snow can be set to auto change based on settings
4th row now shows Almanac always
4th row Irrigation Index can optionally become Snow
many other added readings and layout changes
Anyone interested in beta testing for this version and helping with any issues/problems can contact me for a link to the beta files. Remember, this is a pretty big change and it will require that you already have version 9.11 of ajaxWDwx.js installed and working to move to my version of it. Thanks
Thanks, its really more taking the suggestions of people that use my site, what they wanted to see and some of the requests from people here on what they wanted for their sites. It’s been a year since my last update and there have been a lot of things requested!
I now have about 8 people testing this beta. I’ll let them have a chance to install and test it and see if there are any problems. Hopefully it will go pretty smooth and I will release version 6 soon. Thanks!
Alternative Dashboard is working, take a peek at it here:http://www.akker.be, I’ve had to change a couple of “splits” into “explodes” in the scripts because my server is running PHP5, and split() is deprecated in this version. Still have to make a few minor adjustments but it works! Keep up the good work!
