* FAQ..

1. What is the difference between standalone and version built into the MB-SMART template?
Answer: Stand Alone is designed to be used solely on a tablet or OEM console display.It is a complete slimmed down version.Now SMART TV compatible with ANDROID TV(tested from 32(82cm)" to 55"(140cm) screen sizes)..

2.Can I use it alongside the Older MB-SMART version?
Answer: This is a stand alone design and designed to used purely on a Tablet or Console OEM display and now SMART TV compatible with ANDROID TV(tested from 32(82cm)" to 55"(140cm) screen sizes). This Standalone design has a very small footprint and less demanding upkeep.

3.How to setup ?
Answer: Works identical to MB-SMART version so it uses the in built Weather34 API of the meteobridge NANOSD or Meteobridge Pro or you can use a custom built API ( how to coming soon). see above for setup .

4.How to setup Chart Data?
Answer: Again works almost identical to older MB-SMART version so it uses the in built methods used in older version with a slight difference.See above...*New process for end of day introduced May 2020. .

5.Which PHP Version is this template compatiable with?
Answer: Currently tested with PHP 7.4.9 as of August 2020 .Template has never been developed on anything prior to PHP 7.x.x therefore it is highly recommended to use PHP 7 revisions. .

6.Why a stand alone version?
Answer: Many requests to produce something that simply displays data in a clear manner and act as an alternative display to the actual weather station hardware original display. For example many comment Davis console is not an ideal display unless you are permantly sitting in front of it or many find the Davis console is somewhat dated in appearance or hard to read for quick glancing .This design can be used on any tablet display and mounted in a suitable viewing location with ability to change between dark and light mode. see photograph below. .

7.How much does it cost?
Answer: Nothing it is free all weather34 designed work is free , free from being monitized (Monetization) , free from donationware an often abused phrase with a cover to make money . Weather34 does it for an hobby , Weather34 does not put a price tag on time it takes to accomplish , Weather34 uses software that is free https://code.visualstudio.com for MAC OS . Weather34 uses his own personal local hosted server to design on so no additional costs for hosting packages to cover or moan about.
Weather34 also uses ICDSOFT hosting for personal use and other projects not solely for Weather34 templates. Lastly you have already probably invested a fair amount of your earned money in your hardware to even consider using this so it is nice not to have to pay out for more and being free the choice is entirely yours to use or not without any obligations at all.

8. Choices ?
Weather34 has always viewed it has if it does not suit your preferences or you dislike the design you are not stuck for choice as there are other template designs available via the various weather community forums. The choice really is yours .
Please never offer donations or feel you need too the best donation is your constructive feedback to make it better for everyone who decides to use. As always Weather34 enjoys collaborating and enjoys the wider perspective often gained from constructive feedback....Weather34 ..

9. Languages ?
Languages are tedious to maintain and will often not be updated frequently as one would like.Until a native language speaker of the various languages comes forward and updates the files they will always out of date. If no language file is updated in a 6 month period the language support of that file will be removed.English is the primary designed around language for the template. Currently English, Danish, German, French, Spanish, Italian ,Catalan are supported .

10. What's Next?
Design Whatever the CSS advancements allow us todo .Weather34 continues to adapt to changes in design capabilities ...
