Detail/Summary Scripts Readme
These detail/summary scripts are designed as add-on pages for the WD-AJAX-PHP-USA package available from Saratoga Weather. These pages use the dailynoaareport*.htm and climatedataout*.html files created by Weather Display to display the output.
Version 3 of the detail and summary reports is now available. Additional options have been added to the existing Temperature, Rain, Wind, and Snow reports. Also now available are Barometric Pressure, Degree Days, Dew Point, Wetbulb, Sunshine Hours, Solar Energy, UV, and Snow Depth detail and summary reports.
A change that is common to all of the detail/summary files is the addition of two include files. The wxreport-settings.php file has settings that are common to all of the detail/summary files such as the paths to the dailynoaareport and climatedataout files. It also has settings as to which links to other detail/summary reports are to be displayed on the various reports. If you do not want a link to a specific report to show, set the show link option for that page to false.
If you rename any of the detail/summary files, update the appropriate filename settings to the new filename or the links will not work.
If you want to change the text on one of the link buttons, update the appropriate button text setting.
The wxreportinclude.php file contains the logic as to which (if any) link buttons to display on the detail/summary reports based on the settings you made in the wxreport-settings.php file. There are no settings to make in wxreportinclude.php.
A common css file (wxreports.css) is now used. But if you want to use different color schemes for different reports, you can use a different css file. Just update the $css_file setting in the appropriate detail/summary file(s).
A new option available in the existing (and new) detail/summary files is to allow changing the number of possible colorbands to be displayed up to a maximum of 30. Change the $increment setting in the individual detail/summary file as needed. The default setting is 11 increments which provides 13 colorbands (one below the first increment and one over the last increment). If you do increase the increments setting to more than 11, you will need to edit the css file to add the additional colorbands yourself
NOTE: There is no option to change increments in the wind and UV reports. The wind reports are matched to the beaufort scale and
If you will be using the snow, snow depth, sunshine hours, solar, or UV scripts, update the $start_year, $start_month, and $start_day settings in those files to when you first started recording that type of data. The default setting is the date I started recording that data so you will need to update it with your information.
For those with solar and/or UV sensors, you will need to use a new template to include the solar and UV values in the climatedataout files. Copy the climatedatasolaruv.html (or climatedatasolaruvdepth.html) to the webfiles subdirectory of Weather Display and rename to climatedata.html and recreate the detailed climate reports for the months that you have been using the solar/UV sensors.
If you do not have a solar or uv sensor, there is no point in displaying the Sunshine Hours, Solar Energy, or UV reports as they will have no data to display.
If you will be using the Snow Depth reports, you will need to use the climatedatasolaruvdepth.html template to include the snow depth values in the climatedataout files. Copy the climatedatasolaruvdepth.html to the webfiles subdirectory of Weather Display and rename to climatedata.html and recreate the detailed climate reports for the required months.
The units of measurements used by the detail/summary scripts depends on the settings made in the settings.php of the template set.
