Re: Problem with SendToHTTP

I guess it is a bug then.
The parsing of the rules is a bit too complicated every now and then.
Comparing commands is done case-insensitive, but the parameters should be sent case sensitive.
Or else strings sent to a display for example can not have a mix of lower and upper case letters.

Re: ESPEasy with Sonoff S20 fails as Tasmota doesn't

There is something with more recent Sonoff modules like the S26 and the Basic r2.
What Tasmota does, is do as much calls to 'delay' as possible until WiFi connection has been made.
It seems like the module is not stable when doing other things too when trying to connect to WiFi.
