Realtime.txt additional values  

New Member


Is it possible to added aditional data from the realtime.txt files ? Such as Beaufort, wind chill and some of the time stamps for the max/min temps would be useful to me.

I managed to adjust and get some additional data into the mysql database but I havn't looked yet into adding to the shortcodes etc.

I also noted that you are calculating values instead of using the ones provided in the realtime.txt file for some items e.g. Dewpoint, wind chill, heat index and humidex, is there a reason behind this ? It appears that calculated data is different that that of the realtime.txt file ?
