Weather radial allows you to display yearly temperatures and precipitations as a beautiful radial graph. To configure this shortcode, you must specify the following settings:
- Period type and Period: these two parameters are used to specify the display time period. When the period type is set to a fixed period, the period you specify will always be the same regardless of the display conditions. On the other hand, when the period type is set to a sliding period, the period you specify will be relative to the current date. For example, to display the chart that always matches the previous season (relative to the current date), choose “Sliding Season” and “Season – 1”.
- Values: you can choose to display only temperatures or temperatures and precipitation. To have a complete overview of precipitation select “raw”, to view precipitation as predefined levels, choose “threshold”.
- Template: this is the chart layout template, choose “Neutral” for a template to be formatted by yourself via CSS, or choose a predefined template.
- Height: the height starts at M (300 pixels) up to XXL (700 pixels).
- Value Scale: specify how the temperature axis of the graph behave.
- Data: the data loading setting specifies how the control accesses the data it displays. “Inline” indicates that the data is loaded inside the page source (this data will be refreshed only when the page is refreshed). “Ajax Preload” gives the control the ability to load data via ajax, but it will not attempt to refresh them on a regular basis. “Ajax Refresh” allows the control to refresh regularly the data it displays.
This control is designed to work with climatological data too.
To see how to use it to compare seasons or years, just read the climatological controls help page...
After you have set the parameters as you wish, click on the "copy" button then paste the shortcode into the page or the post, where you want the control to appear.
This chart displays daily values or historical values.
Refresh occurs at page load (with or without ajax preload) or automatically (every 2 minutes for daily data or every 1 hour for historical data).
