New Block + block updates

Hi guys,

nice Sunday afternoon. Just a few updates and one simple new block for the weekend ­čÖé

New Block – Ozone Forecast

Probably no need to explain this any further as the title is quite self-explanatory. There is no need to set up anything, the forecast is based on satellite data (data source┬á – permission granted for Meteotemplate users) and your co-ordinates set in config.php.

Block update – Gauges 2.0

I always consider all feedback you provide me and questions I get. The gauges seem to have very positive feedback, but lot of you already suggested some new features and there was a little bug that needed to be fixed. I therefore quickly incorporated those changes and there are now several new options.
Here is a brief summary of new stuff:

  • possibility to show gauge for dew point
  • possibility to show the compass using the same type of gauge as the other ones (normal needle)
  • possibility to enable/disable compass gauge title separately (as it does not look good with the line needle)
  • possibility to show time of last update – just like the current block – at the top
  • possibility to limit the UV gauge to a maximum 11 instead of the default 20
  • now compatible with the Current block so they can be used along each other on the homepage
  • bug fix for the compass (wind direction gauge), which was showing direction shifted by 180┬░

Block update – Weather Networks 2.0

I substantially extended the possibilities of the Weather Networks block. It is now possible to include many other networks and clicking the link will automatically open a new window where the user can share a link to your site. There are also a few links to popular weather related websites.

Networks/links currently available:

  • link to Meteotemplate network
  • share link to Facebook
  • share link to Google+
  • share link to Twitter
  • share link to Digg
  • share link to Delicious
  • share link to StumbleUpon
  • share link to LinkedIn
  • share link to Reddit
  • link to your Weather Underground site
  • link to your AWEKAS site
  • link to your CWOP site
  • link to your WeatherCloud site
  • link to your WOW Metoffice site
  • link to your PWS site
  • link to your Meteoclimatic site
  • link to NWS site for your location
  • link to SkyWarn
  • link to CoCoRaHS

The block is now also responsive so can be placed in any column width and works with both dark and light theme.

Have a nice rest of the weekend
