Weird captive portal behavior



  • Can someone please explain why the captive portal redirect to the web when clicking on a normal button, BUT it doesn't do that when instead of a button, a clickable image it's used???

  • Doktornotor, are your comments always so useful?
    Anyways the previous thread is no longer relevant, as this seems to be a problem of the pfSense code itself


  • Banned

    Yeah, sure thing. Spamming about the exact same thing over and over again just because you didn't solve it first time won't get you anywhere. Stop doing this.



  • Sorry to ask, but are you like this even in your real life ?  :D

    Let me try to explain it to you in different terms, as you are clearly facing more difficulties than i currently do.

    The previous thread was about a problem which i thought was depending upon using code in the wrong way, while this thread it's about what i believe it is an inner problem of pfSense after having gathered enough informations on the case, so i am now confident that this it's something different.
    If it can help in makes you feel anything better, the previous one can be erased.

    I think the point that's trying to be made here is that the PF code works perfectly well out of the box. What you're trying to do is re-code the portal page and encoutering problems. Coming to a PFS forum and blaming the problems you're having on PFS is not going to encourage many people to assist you, particularly the developers who are most likely the best people to help but who might take it personally if you blame your woes on their work.

    Just an observation.

    All you have to do is make your portal page do this:

    Probably requires some javascript to do it on other than a form submit button.

    The CP code does not care how you coerce the browser into submitting the post.  Fix your code.

    Muswellhillbilly, after i did try gazyllions times to make something work and it didn't, i thought the most natural thing to do was coming to the forum which supposed to help whom might be facing difficulties, but very sadly, at least lately, the only people whom will add something are those who write to either fix it by yourself, "too easy for me", "stop spamming!" ….what the heck!! I wasn't exactly asking for a whole new code to be rewritten, and i am sure that some of the more experienced users would have been able to just type less than half a line to fix it.
    I was under the impression that it was a problem with pfSense because i didn't spot the missing command, if sometime (just sometime) somebody would try to be helpfull to others rather than obnoxious i am sure it would incredibly help, anyway, i was able to fix it with the help of some other more helpfull user somewhere else, and here is the code, so anybody else having the same problem can be spared from what i had to endure looking for help in here, people shouldn't really go so proud of putting down others on this way and defending them it's not better for sure.
    PfSense it's a great program but very complicated sometime, anyway it's not really the difficulty encountered that it's putting me off but rather the attitude of someone on the forum, and i am just dare enough to tell about my user experience rather than just say PfSack all, i am out of here....

    Asking for help with 2.0.1 is going to receive little feedback other than "upgrade then ask again."

    Nobody has a test environment for 2.0.1 to try things to help you.

    If you want to pay me US$2500 to setup and US$500/yr to maintain a 2.0.1 test environment plus US$100 per ticket, for which the accepted, billable answer might very well be "that's broken in 2.0.1. Upgrade."  PM me.
