You already have Things and Items, if you are seeing stuff in PaperUI control tab.
There is more than one way to create Things and Items in openHAB, which way was used does not matter to the Things and Items.
If you do not know you already have Items, you are probably using openHAB in Simple mode, where they get auto created.
That sounds helpful but becomes a nuisance when you want to edit things for yourself.
Simple mode hides Items from you in PaperUI.
If you want stuff to show up on HABpanel, you need to do a lot of custom configuring and know the names of the Items you want to show.
Now I have removed simple mode and still cant get the weather on the panel.
what I missing did it all from the beginning and still same result ???
also want if possible step by step about this item and codes where to put them so im 100% on the right file and editing right text…,.
Uninstalled everything and started again, also removed simple mode with the same result on paperUI everything is ok but on habpanel a gray blue box (empty) installed weather underground and now I got a lot of programming eg but no weather data or icons like ex.Sprintf:item ('weather… and so on…
the text is also too large does not fit into the box wondering how to get a simple view so complicated apparently you have to be a data engineer.
have been working with computers since 83 but never sat and wrote codes except at the beginning with DOS but just trying is grateful that there are wiser people to turn to.
