Weather/Webcam Improvements

Postby CampADK » Tue Apr 29, 2014 1:06 pm

The Weather/Webcam page was pretty slow since it loaded all the weather sites and webcams all at once.

Finally got around to fixing it so it loads MUCH faster. If you click on any of the other weather/webcam tabs on the page it will load those (only once) for each one you select.

Also the default view which is the Accuweather frame now loads the current weather extended forecast.

The frame for the Chapel Island webcam now works as well. (they had changed the URL on the Upper Saranac site).

This feature should now be much more useable.

Visit the Weather/Webcam page at http://fishcreekpond.com/checkweather.php

Cheers

Hey,
I'm surprised you don't have the whiteface summit cam showing on that page. Along with the one of the whiteface lodge. Is it just because you don't think they are necessarily helpful to fish creek campers?

Originally all the weather/cam pages pre-loaded which really bogged it down so I didn't include all of them. Mind you I've changed that so speed isn't an issue now.

There are lots of webcams in the ADK but not much point in have anything more than 1/2 hour away I figured.

There isn't a webcam at the Whiteface Lodge. You must be thinking of someplace else?

Sorry I guess it's at the Lake Placid Lodge.

Then there is the Summit cam. This might be helpful if anyone wants to take a day trip while at fish creek.

Yup that first one is from the Lake Placid Lodge.

I'll see about adding these two. Currently working on some other enhancements. Always lots to improve!
