New Programming NIghtmare

Hey Chris, here’s an interesting suggestion.
How about having an option to put your wxlocal.html file online you so can edit it from anywhere, have it pull it from offline, then re-upload it to your homepage. Basically, I put a personal weather forecast at the bottom of my page, here’s the link www.bensweather.com and the weather changes so frequently I’d like to be able to edit the forecast/stats/etc. from away from my my, as the wxlocal file is on my hard drive, what do you think about this?
Cheers

Sorry about all the typos, my brain goes faster than my fingers. I’d like to edit the wxlocal file from a remote source, I hope you got the idea…

hi

and have wd save it in the webfiles folder

hi try using the http download of the file from a web site you can get it up to and have wd save it in the webfiles folder easy tick text file though

For some reason I can’t get it to work, where do I put in the filename I want it to download, where do I put where I want it to download and where do I put what I want it to be called when it saves it locally on my hard drive. Additionally to I need to put in the ftp host, username and password or does it automatically take it from the usual upload settings? Thanks

Ok I got it working, but a better questions is how come it will not over write my local file, it starts naming them wxlocal1 wxlocal2 and so on

Disregard all messages above, I see it works but back up your older files. But everything seems to be working fine.

you should have 1 with no number attached to it
the numbering is so you can animate a downloaded satalltie picture, via view, downloaded images

Brian,
This is similar where the numbering now in 9.29e is hosed. I’ve left a bug report on this plus sent you pictures of what it is now doing. It’s hosed.

yes, i got all that…
been on a school trip all day…
i see my animation of my downloaded image is not working now
i dont remember changing anything, but i will investigate

9.30 uploading now should fix the next scheduled ftp upload time
but as for the http download filename thing, its still doing it, but looking at the code it should not be, and i have not changed anything…but it is playing up…
must be some sort of variable in memory conflict
i will get to the bottom of it…

found the bug
it was the new FTP program doing this
fixed and uploading now (9.30a)
