Learning to Use URL Parameters

Learning to Use URL Parameters

Weathercloud is a great way to share your weather data with family, friends and other weather buffs. On this Blog post we’re unveiling all the URL parameters you can use to control how your station is displayed to others, including the language, units of measure and many more.

Make sure you add ? before the first parameter and & between parameters. Also keep in mind that if the person viewing your station has previously set his units and language, either as a registered user or as a guest, his configuration will prevail.

    Hi,
    I struggled due to a false assumption by reusing parts of the url regarding the map topic.

    Opens the specified device on the map.
    /map#

    I had copied that device ID from my previous URL and unfortunatelly had also added the d from device used in the url.
    Might be worth to add an example which would have helped me a lot to get behind that mysterious issue I had thought to have found oout until I realized that the pure device id is without that “d” I had always copied from my previous examples.

    https://app.weathercloud.net/map#2774582555 does work, but
    https://app.weathercloud.net/map#d2774582555 does not work at all.

    As I said before: my mistake but I guess some more might stumble and loose time while playing around with the URL parameters.
    Thanks a lot
