New version 4 saves data on first call each day to improve page load times

  • Get this

Simple module to display tide times for a USA location.
Select reference port from NOAA website and the module will display high and/or low water times and heights for the current today or today and tomorrow.
Times can be displayed as GMT or corrected for local solar time and daylight saving.
Optional text before or after the times.
Tide data is read from the NOAA website - when the format of that site changes then an update to the module is required.

v4.0.0 April 2015 now saves tide times in database first time each station is queried each day thus massivily improving subsequent page loads. Also an update server is now available.
v3.4.0 March 2015 now includes option to use either curl or filegetcontents() to scrape data from NOAA site (defaults to curl, previously used filegetcontents() - some hosts disable filegetcontents() or curl in php settings, usually one or other is available )
v3.3.1 March 2015 minor bugfix for strict standards compliance and NOAA link in module footer now links to selected station page on NOAA site


Disappointed to see that the new version hasn't addressed this either. Author claims you can "...display the tide table for a week or a month from today's date" but thats not the case at all. I brought this to his attention about 2 years ago, so hoped he had addressed it in the new version.



It doesn't display a "month from today's date" but rather displays the current month. Big difference.



If its the last day of the month, basically it just tells you the last 30 days and the current day, nothing for the future. Pretty hard to plan marine navigation ahead of time in this regard.


Super App


Posted on 09 March 2012

This is a very useful tool for those who study, work, or use as a hobby. great graphics, there are a few tweaks that could be useful for this app to go on to other Joomla versions. but in any case this is a truly super application/ module


Works well

Needed to tweak some of the grammar a bit and

then modded it a bit to look more in tune to my

site settings but it works as stated very well.



Thanks!


Works right out of the box, simple and straigtforward to configure. Display tweaked easily to go with my design. Just what I needed- AND the developer is friendly and helpful.

Version 4.0 now saves tide times the first time the module is displayed each day thus massively improving page load times as NTSLF does not have to be interrogated each time. Simple module to display tide times for a UK location. Select reference port and specify an average offset in minutes and the module will display high and/or low water times and heights for the current day, or high water for up to 28 days. Times can be corrected for BST/GMT Optional text before or after the times. Tide data is read from the NTSLF website - when the format of that site changes then an update to the module is required.

Simple module to display the local time of sunrise and sunset for a location. Parameters to set the latitude and longitude (search google to find the coordinates for a given location), text to appear before and after the times, and the timezone to use for times. You can also display the current date and time at the location (the time does not update, this is not a clock!) Stylesheet is installed in media/ and can be edited or over-ridden in the normal way. Default style prefix to use the supplied stylesheet is 'sud_'
