 +===== WeatherDisplay - what and how to upload =====
 +<WRAP tip>
 +**For users of the Saratoga-Template:​**\\ ​
 +If you are testing the leuven-template it is not necessary yet to upload the needed Leuven files if you are already uploading testtags.php and the clientraw files. ​ you can postpone this until you are satisfied with all adaptions and start using the Leuven Template with your upload Saratoga files.\\ ​
 +check this page: [[uploadWD_sar|WeatherDisplay en Saratoga-Template]]
 +</​WRAP>​
 +<WRAP tip>
 +**For users of an older version of the Leuven-template:​**\\ ​
 +If you are using a previous version of the Leuven-Template it is not necessary yet to upload the new tag file.
 +Ga naar deze pagina: [[uploadWD_leuven|WeatherDisplay en Leuven oudere versie]]
 +</​WRAP>​
 +
 +==== More information ====
 +Although it is a development in progress, there is already wealth of information available in the WeatherDisplay manual. ​ Maybe its a good moment to have it available [[http://​www.weather-watch.com/​WD_Manual.pdf]]\\ or use the online version at 
 +[[http://​www.tokaanuskihire.co.nz/​wdhelp/​index.shtml]]
 +
 +Or if you prefer their wiki is at [[http://​wiki.weather-watch.com/​index.php/​Main_Page]]
 +
 +You could visit their [[http://​www.weather-display.com/​index.php|website]]. ​
 +
 +And their forum is at: [[http://​www.weather-watch.com/​smf/​]]
 +
 +==== Assumptions ====
 +This document is based on the Windows version of WeatherDisplay. A seperate document is here for the consoleWd version. There has been no test with the Linux or Mac versions of WD.
 +
 +The following assumptions are made for all text / examples on this page about locations of data:
 +
 +^what  ^where ​ ^
 +|WeatherDisplay is installed in:    |C:​\wdisplay ​  |
 +|Files to be uploaded are stored then in: |C:​\wdisplay\webfiles\ ​  |
 +|Default upload folder on your webserver: %%www.uw-web-site.com/​%% ​ |weather27/​uploadWD/ ​ |
 +
 +=== WeatherDisplay - Which files are needed ===
 +
 +^file to be used for^WeatherDisplay file name^where to get that file^template file name^upload frequency ​  ^
 +|**Weather-data values for all pages of the template** ​  ​|tags.wd.txt |scriptsWD/ ​  ​|tags.wd.txt ​ |5 minutes|
 +|**Realtime weather-data values** |WD-Live ​ |built into WeatherDisplay\\ no customization needed |clientraw.txt ​ |set by WD  |
 +|:::   ​|WD-Live extra  |:::   ​|clientrawextra.txt ​ |:::   |
 +|:::   ​|WD-Live hour  |:::   ​|clientrawhour.txt ​ |:::   |
 +|:::   ​|WD-Live daily  |:::   ​|clientrawdaily.txt ​ |:::   |
 +|**Graphs, based on type and availability of sensors:​** ​ |||||
 +|windrose on trend page  |not needed ​  ​|built into WeatherDisplay ​   |dirplot.gif ​  |set by WD     |
 +|other graphs for graph page  |not needed ​  ​|built into WeatherDisplay ​   |curr24hourgraph.gif ​ |:::   |
 +|:::      |:::      |:::      |curr72hourgraph.gif ​ |:::   |
 +|:::      |:::      |:::      |monthtodate.gif ​ |:::   |
 +==== WeatherDisplay - put the files in the weather-program folder ​ ====
 +
 +Now we are going to place the downloaded tag-file in the webfiles folder of your WeatherDisplay on your PC.\\ Probably that is C:​\wdisplay\webfiles.
 +
 +Use the filemanager on your PC to locate that folder and drop the tags.wd.txt ​ into that folder.
 +
 +==== WeatherDisplay - ftp settings ​ ====
 +<WRAP alert  100%>​Here you find only basic information on the setup of WeatherDisplay. Please study the documentation and /or ask your questions on the VWS specific parts of the forum.</​WRAP>​
 +The default upload folder is weather27/​uploadWD/​
 +How to set your FTP settings in WeatherDisplay is beyond the scope of this document.
 +Please check the manuals, the documentation and so on.
 +==== Upload Graphs ====
 +
 +In WeatherDisplay go to:
 +  * menu ⇒ ControlPanel
 +  * button ⇒ Webfiles / Webpage Real time FTP/ WDL
 +  * tab ⇒ Web Files Setup #1
 +  * the windplot for the graphs page
 +{{ :​wd_upload1.jpg?​nolink |}}
 +Op dezelfde pagina:
 +  * the graphs for the "​Station grpahs page"
 +{{ :​wd_upload2.jpg?​nolink |}}
 +
 +==== WeatherDisplay-Live files to upload ​ ====
 +In WeatherDisplay go to: 
 +  * menu => ControlPanel ​
 +  * button => Webfiles / Webpage Real time FTP/ WDL
 +  * tab => 
 +{{ :​wd_upload3.jpg?​nolink |}}
 +==== Tags conversion and upload ====
 +
 +In WeatherDisplay go to: 
 +  * menu => ControlPanel ​
 +  * Button "​**Internet File creation & uploads**"​
 +  * Click on tab "​**Setup Page #2**"
 +  * Click on line with  File#29 and then on the  **Set** button
 +{{ :​wd_upload4.jpg?​nolink |}}
 +
 +  * Type the two names in the right box (example has the arrows to it). 
 +    * **Local file name** is the name of the file in the C:​\Wdisplay\webfiles folder which WD will read and process
 +    * **Remote file name** ​ is the name of the translated file when stored.
 +    * if the first lines are already used you should take a free set (of 2) lines.Als de eerste regels al in gebruik zijn neemt u een lege set regels ​
 +  * You can set the update frequency as you like. 5 minutes is in most cases OK.
 +
 +<​WRAP ​ important 100%>
 +Check if ALL switches are in the green (ON) position and always leave with the **OK** button.
 +</​WRAP>​
 +==== Check  ====
 +Now it is time to check everything. During the first stages of the insdtall all test files were used. Now your own files should be uploaded, so your own values should be displayed on the template pages.
 + The **uploadWD**folder should contain therefor ​
 +<wrap hi>​recent versions</​wrap>​ of:
 +
 +  * tagsWD.txt
 +  * 4 clientraw*.txt files
 +  * and all needed graphs.
