The PhpWeatherPlugin is a Help:WikiPlugin that uses PhpWeather to display a block of text with the current weather for some airport in the world. It looks like this:
- Set this to true to have the plugin generate a menu after the report. The user will able to select a country from this menu, and after that, an airport and a language. The default value is false.
Use this to pre-select a specific airport instead of using the default one which is EKAH. If you want the user to be able to change the station using the menu, then you have to use this as
<?plugin PhpWeather menu=true icao||=EKYT ?>
so that the value can be overwritten when the user submits the form. If you just use
<?plugin PhpWeather menu=true icao=EKYT ?>
then nothing will happen when the user selects another station from the list.
Specify the country code. You can use this if you want pre-select a different country than the one specified in the ICAO. So using
<?plugin PhpWeather menu=true cc||=GB icao||=KTTS ?>
will show the current weather at the NASA Shuttle Facility, United States (KTTS) and at the same time give the user a list of stations in the United Kingdom. As the example shows, then you should use cc||=XX when combining it with menu set to true.
- The default language. When combining language with menu set
to true then remember to use the
You can specify the way the units are printed. The choice is between having both metric and imperial units printed, or just one of them. Setting units to both_metric will print the metric value first and then the imperial value in parenthesis. Using both_imperial instead will do the opposite.
If you only need the metric or imperial units to be shown, then setting units to only_metric or only_imperial will do just that.
