 have custom CP with css and so on. It was migrated with the migration tool from 6 to 8 but it seems that there is no way to change the files now.

 

do i need to get the flash backup, change the files and restore it then?

Was this ever resolved?

The 8.3 user guide says go to "Configuration > Management > Captive

 Portal > Upload Custom Login Pages" which does not even exist in version 8.......

Re: AOS 8 custom captive portal. upload/change files

yes this is the same link. Section 6 under 'Configuring Localization' 

I want to upload an custom captive portal page that I am using under version 6.5 which has custom CSS files. I cannot find where to upload this content. Under section 6 in this link it says

"Configuration > Management > Captive Portal > Upload Custom Login Pages" which does not appear to exist in version 8.

You do have to click on "Custom HTML" to upload pages after you choose Internal Captive Portal with authentication:

I don't see that piece in the instructions.  Do you see the screenshot above?

I do see the screen shot but that does not allow me to upload a custom page with CSS files etc.

Do you see the "browse" button?

You should click on the Browse button and use your file system to find the file you want to upload, and then click on "Submit", then click on Pending Changes in the upper right hand corner to push the change.  For css and other assets, you will unfortunately have to come back to this page and click on submit one by one.  Uploading using the "File for Login page" and "File for Welcome Page" are the same thing, except for one difference:  "File for Login page" uploads a file and automatically sets the Login page of the captive portal to that filename.  You want to upload all of your other assets using the "Welcome Page" dialog...

 

It is worth noting that I had the resolution on my monitor high and I had to hit ctrl - or ctrl + to actually see the submit button...

Re: AOS 8 custom captive portal. upload/change files

Ok this worked. The issue was not that I could not see the buttons, it was that the wording is not clear in the guide for uploading custom files as the only options appear to be 'File for login page' or 'File for welcome page'. To make it clearer there should be an option for 'Content' as there is in 6.x.

Anyway, this did solve my issue so thanks for your help. It does not look like I can mark the thread as solved as I did not create it originally.

Thanks
