Support for custom splash pages (Walled Garden)

You can now use a custom splash page for your locations. This is a page that will be shown to your hotspot user first (f.e. an info page). Then you have to place a link back to our site so the user can continue to get access to the hotspot and log in.

You have to host the page so be sure that it is working permanently. All files have to come from the same domain name, do not place links to external sites or embed graphics and ads from an external server, it won't work. We can also host it for you if you want.

The most important thing is you have to be sure that the link back to our site is highly visible for your users, so they can find it easily.

You can modify the URL in the operator area (HotSpot Locations > Click on the name > Modify Hotspot data).

After you modified the URL, some changes have to be made for this thing to work. You have to run the setup command again or you can modify the firmware settings manually.
