[This post is marked as unsolved] Shortening Measurements
I see others are have the same problems fitting Measurement names in labels and titles - "Accumulated Rainfall for the last hour", etc. I saw one response where this was going to be customization avaialable in v. 3.5. I'm running the latest version but can't see where to change this.

Thanks for your help
You're right, but the behavior of the WordPress translation scheme made me push the release of this feature to version 4.x...
Yes, you can hack the get_measurement_type method in the ../live-weather-station/includes/traits/DataTypeDescription.php file. But it's a tricky business...
If this is so important to you, I can try to put it in version 3.8... But this will require to bypass some behaviors of the WordPress translation system, and I'm not sure if it's "safely" workable. Let me 7-8 days to see how (and if) I can do it with the current translation system...
Thank you Pierre, I spend some time exploring the options for identifying Low and high temperatures of the day and the best I can come up with is what you see now at http://blazetheweatherhorse.com . I think people, when they see what the values are, will understand which is the high and low temp for the day. I don't think it's worth completely tearing up your whole development schedule for a couple of labels. I'll just change it when you get to it.
It will be in version 3.8 😊
Thanks for the suggestion...
PS: post moved from "general question" to "ideas & suggestions".
I'm working on this feature right now. Could you tell me in which control or chart you want to see this ?
Thank for your answer.
I understand which sort of labels (I've made a quick search on labels lengths. But in which controls ? Could you give me example?
OK. I understand better, thanks 😉
If you use (when generating shortcodes) the "short measurement type", it's not sufficient (that's an assumption I make). Could you give me use-cases where it doesn't fit? It's important to me to really understand what you want (and how you will use it).
