Solution from vzorglub

Number HTTPstring "HTTP [%.2f °C]" { http="<[*?))]" }

Couple of questions

  • Is the HTTP binding installed?
  • Is the REGEX transformation installed?

Hi vzorglub, yes both are installed via paper gui

HTTP Binding


is my syntax of the command right?

Try that:

Number HTTPstring "HTTP [%.2f °C]" { http="<[*?))" }

I tried it and after some tries i found that if i remove the HTTP:// and replace the HTTP from the begin to HTTP1 with lowercase i dont get any error but still the value in the sitemap does not update!

Number HTTPstring "HTTP [%.2f °C]" { **http**="<[*?))" }

Without error

Number HTTPstring "HTTP [%.2f °C]" { http1="<[*?))" }

We both are dummies…
You are missing a ] at the end of your binding string:

Number HTTPstring "HTTP [%.2f °C]" { http="<[*?))]" }
