 +===== WeatherLink - What to upload and how =====
 +This document is based on the Windows version of WeatherLink.
 +I am not aware of any real WeatherLink manual on-line or in a PDF file. Maybe its a good moment to check the help file on the install CD again.
 +==== Assumptions ====
 +The following assumptions are made for all text / examples on this page about locations of data:
 +The **StationName** used below is the name you assigned to your station in the setup of WeatherLink.
 +You can see that name also in the top part of the WeatherLink window after the date field.
 +^what  ^where ​ ^
 +|WeatherLink is installed in:    |C:​\WeatherLink ​  |
 +|Files to be uploaded are stored then in: |C:​\WeatherLink\**StationName**\Templates ​  |
 +|Default upload folder on your webserver:​\\​%% ​ |weather27/​uploadWL/ ​ |
 +==== WeatherLink - Which files are needed ====
 +^file to be used for^WeatherLink name^where to get that file^template file name^upload frequency ​  ^
 +|**Weather-data values for all pages of the template** |tags.wl.htx |scriptsWL/ ​  ​|tags.wl.txt ​ |5 minutes|
 +|Yesterday values ​   |tagsyday.wl.htx |:::   ​|tagsyday.wl.txt ​  |at 23:55 |
 +|**Realtime weather-data values for all pages of the template **|realtimev3.htx |::: |realtimev3.txt ​ |every minute|
 +|**Graphs, based on type and availability of sensors:​** ​ |||||
 +|trend and graph page  |built in   ​|built in    |multiple ​  |see example ​ |
 +|Steelseries ​ |:::   ​|::: ​   |:::   ​|::: ​ |
 +==== WeatherLink - put the files in the weather-program folder ​ ====
 +You have to download the three files from the scriptsWL/ folder (using your standard FTP program) and put them in the C:​\WeatherLink\**StationName**\Templates ​ folder on your PC where you are running ​ WeatherLink. ​
 +==== WeatherLink - ftp settings ​ ====
 +<WRAP alert  100%>​Here you find only basic information on the setup of WeatherLink. Please study the documentation and /or ask your questions on the VWS specific parts of the forum.</​WRAP>​
 + {{ :​wl_ftp.jpg?​direct |}}
 +In this image you see all fields you should set. Your provider should has given you the details and the how-to. The default upload folder is weather27/​uploadWL/​ \\ 
 +<wrap important >​Sometimes you have to add extra information before the path, such as /​html_public/​ or /httpdocs/ </​wrap>​
 +==== WeatherLink - individual file upload settings ​ ====
 +Now we are going to instruct WeatherLink to upload the files we need for the template. ​
 +In WeatherLink go to:
 +  * menu⇒Setup
 +  * select Internet Settings
 +  * select an empty Profiles and
 +  * click button =>​Configure
 +You can  now set the number of minutes between uploads and the new extension Weatherlink have to use for the file to be uploaded. ​
 +You can than enter the files to upload by clicking on Select Template files.
 +{{ :​wl_upload1.jpg?​direct |}}
 +<WRAP important>​
 +One can only use 1 file type (php or xml or txt) per profile. Also 1 frequency (every n minutes) is possible.
 +You need at least
 +  *1 profile for yesterday value (at 23.55 once per day)
 +  *1 profile for current weather values, every 5 minutes with extension php.
 +  *1 profile every minute for Steelseries gauges
 +==== WeatherLink - yesterday values ​ ====
 +One file is a more special. The yesterday values are not kept by WeatherLink directly. ​
 +Todays min/max are. So what we do (invented by Ken True of is to use todays minimum and maximum values just before the end of the day. 
 +So at 23:55 (11:55 PM) we ask WeatherLink to upload a file with todays values and use that the next day as yesterday values. And after 23:59 they realy become yesterday values.
 +==== WeatherLink - Station graphs
 ​  ====
 +The template uses some graphs for the page:  Almanac==>​Station Graphs separate
 +If you want to use that page go to:
 +  * menu⇒Setup then
 +  * select Internet Settings then
 +  * select an empty Profiles and
 +  * click button =>​Configure
 +  * Below the Historical Data Images box click Select.
 +Select all graphs as in the folowing image:
 +{{ :​wl_upload3.jpg?​nolink |}}
 +==== WeatherLink - Steelseries graphs
 ​  ====
 +Same procedure for the Steelseries graphs, but now we select the Current Images to upload.
 +{{ :​wl_upload2.jpg?​nolink |}}
