Snow, Weather, Lift Info now on my.steamboat home page

You can now see the latest snow, temperature, wind, lift & trail info just below the Photo Of The Day on the homepage. This info comes from our steamboatinfo Twitter feed, and is updated several times a day. If a lift closes temporarily due to wind or other reasons, the first place you can probably see it is on the homepage or on your mobile phone via the same steamboatinfo Twitter feed. Enjoy!

Jiminy. I've now "fixed" this a fourth time. Gave up on using the Twitter RSS feed and am now using it's newer sibling "ATOM" and it's working like a champ. The updates are actually showing up on the home page, and each one is a click thru to the Twitter page. Thanks for the extra sets of eyes folks!

Yep I can see it now, well done

It is definitely working better - clicking on "more" now takes me to something interesting and useful. Thank you :-)

Am not sure if you intend for there to actually be some text on the homepage (i.e. a summary of present conditions) - that isn't appearing at the moment (although it did, briefly, last night UK time).

And now it's working even mo' better. A little glitch we may have to live with is the repetition of the title and content. Right now it looks like an artifact of the way we're using the Twitter RSS feed.

OK, it's all working now, but we'll see if the RSS reader that's built into our software here makes the latest tweet from Kent disappear again.

Sorry about my typing above: either I have mentally lost it (quite possible!) or the keyboard of this laptop is playing up (and missing letters/spaces out all over the place!). Must re-read before I post!

Looking into this. I saw both tweets there a while ago. Our site might be retiring the feed entries for some reason....

I guess I thought it would just post the info on the main page as an information link or heading.

I think that the idais that twitter provides a feed to the hompage (updatd a few times a day). I did see a feed appear, briefly, about an hour or so ago. It has gone again now. I don't think it is working quit as James has intended (from reading his post). Will be great when it is working properly though :-)

Boo & Mike, This link seems to give the twitter info James is talking about. I registered on the twitter site but they don't sms to UK phones.
