I’ve now added the option to send text-only e-mails. This will apply to all e-mails coming from WxNotify.

The first option is now “Send emails in […]

A subscriber requested that I bring back the option to send text-only e-mail alerts. I had mistakenly removed the option (only providing HTML emails) without realizing that subscribers actually wanted that feature! I will be working on adding that feature back in over the weekend.

I was notified by my monitoring that the Chicago NWS office issued a Winter Storm Watch for its CWA around 2:47pm today, but it was not dispatched by WxNotify. It turns out the product got stuck in Laravel’s queue for some reason. I re-ran the product through the system and it was dispatched with no […]

I received reports of users receiving duplicate alerts. The reason was WxNotify showed EMWIN being the primary product source, however the NWWS-OI process was also running. Will add additional monitoring so I’ll know if something like this happens again. Apologies for the inconvenience!

I was alerted to the fact that subscribers using AT&T who have SMS contacts set up are not receiving SMS text messages. I dug deeper into this issue and found that the messages to <number>@txt.att.net are bouncing when sent from my server. Some research on the Internet resulting in several posts on AT&T forums with […]

After going live, I noticed that some pre-existing accounts are having some issues with products that don’t exist anymore. When attempting to edit the affected product list, a HTTP 500 error is being thrown. I’m working on a fix now, will update when it’s resolved. EDIT: The product list issue is fixed now. While fixing, […]
