Why? What is the problem?
Let's start over again. Please post again the last code you have and a description of the problem (to be honest, a long time passed since out last discussion and I'm a bit lazy to read all again).

Before you give up, vHAPpY, have you opened with a text editor a skin you downloaded to look inside how it's build, until now?
Often the skins are build using .inc files for settings and also other things.

This is the first (and maybe the only) method to understand how it works.

It's very simple.

In your Settings.inc you've to add:

Code: Select all

[Variables]
SatWeb=http://rammb.cira.colostate.edu/ramsdis/online/archive_with_thumbnails.asp?data_folder=himawari-8/philippines_true_color&width=1020&height=720


In your skin, you've to modify:

Code: Select all

[MeasureImagesURL]
Measure=Plugin
Plugin=WebParser
Url=#SatWeb#

You can do this for almost everything, from Text Styles to RegExp, from Substitute to any possible variable you can imagine. ;-)
