 +==== Which components can you choose from ====
 +There is an ever growing number of components to choose from to make your own startpage.
 +If you just installed the template you have a modest startpage (p=10) and a demo startpage (p=10x) which shows all 
 +components available for your region/​country and your weatherprogram.

 +==== Customize the page ====
 +Open wsStartpage.php in a decent program editor.  ​
 +
 +The list to be displayed is at the beginnig of the script:
 +
 +Just to explain i will show you a few
 +<​code>​
 +$dashboard[] = '​ajax';​
 +$dashboard[] = '​wdlive';​ </​code>​
 +**$dashboard[]** is an array which is loaded with your choices from all line WITHOUT a commment mark # at the first position of the line. \\ 
 +The text after the **=** sign is one choice , 
 +so in this case the **ajax** dashboard ​ and **wdlive** (small version for dashboard.
 +The last choice will only be shown when your weatherprogram can upload the 4 files needed.
 +
 +
 +Customize:​\\ ​
 +**  1** set a comment mark at all lines you do not want to use\\ 
 +**  2** remove a comment mark (if it is there) on all lines you want to use\\ 
 +
 +**  3** **move** all  lines you want to use to the upper part just below
 +<​code>#​---------------------------- SETTINGS: ​  ​------------------------------
 +# Rearrange and place here the lines you want to use
 +</​code>​
 +**  4** Move the lines also in the correct sequence. Example:
 +<​code>#​---------------------------- SETTINGS: ​  ​------------------------------
 +# Rearrange and place here the lines you want to use
 +$dashboard[] = '​ajax';​ //​ ajax  dashboard
 +$dashboard[] = '​fc';​ // soil  fc=forecast AQ=air quality
 +$dashboard[] = '​yo';​ // yo=yowindow
 +
 +# leave all other lines WITH a comment mark below this one
 +#​---------------------------- NOT USED:   ​------------------------------
 +# old fashioned dashboard
 +
 +# air quality
 +#​$dashboard[] ​  = '​aqhi_map'; ​  // US air quality maps
 +#​$dashboard[] ​  = '​aqhi'; ​      // US air quality sliders
 +#​$dashboard[] = '​AQ';​ // cananda air quality
 +
 +# "​realtime displays"​

 +#​$dashboard[] = '​wdliveplug';​ // weatherDisplay alternative meteoplug  ​
 +#​$dashboard[] = '​wulive';​ //​ wulive ​
 +. . .   and all other lines . . </​code>​
