Many PersonalTelco nodes share a splash page on their CaptivePortal. We've worked hard to make sure that the page will render in pretty much every browser known to man (minimal images, no tables, uses CSS but works without it etc).

The official splash page repository: http://www.personaltelco.net/splash/

Here's a preliminary idea: http://www.yourpalbill.com/ptp/nodesplash/ --BillHolmstrom


[http://www.yourpalbill.com/ptp/nodesplash/v3/ Node Splash version 3] is latest page by BillHolmstrom.

Is there a way to fix the scrolling text box to make it not seem to disappear and drop to the bottom of the browser window when you make it smaller? Here are some screen shots showing the problems using IE 6.0 [http://www.launi.com/dc/NoCatAuth/nodesplashv3-1.png Problem 1] [http://www.launi.com/dc/NoCatAuth/nodesplashv3-2.png Problem 2] -- LonnieWormley


I'm still debating in my head if it's a good idea but one of my listed features for NoCatAuth is the ability to allow certain links out. This would allow us to link to sponsors sites, an AUP and other goodness. It does however increase the possibilities of DOS attacks etc. I'm thinking it's a good thing but I could be swayed either way. --AdamShand


A mailto: link or a web form on the page would be exceedingly useful to have people report problems of a broken gateway. This happened to me just last week (Jan2002) - I could DHPC and ping the gateway but i couldnt not authenticate, even though nocat was in open mode. That way operators could login and look at the problem right away. It would also help count how many people are having trouble, especially if the gateway is working for some people. --DonPark

Here is another test page. [http://www.launi.com/dc/NoCatAuth/NoCat02.html Test page 02]

This page has no floating boxes which is HTML 4.0. I have only used tables and form buttons, radio buttons, and form text boxes. The text in the boxes is copied from PersonalTelco page and [http://www.easystreet.com/services/personal_telco.html EasyStreet] website. It is there only as a place holder.

This page is another test page that is a work in progress comments appreciated and as usual the HTML source is freely available. New PTP logo includes Portland Oregon and 'www'. I think that the URL and the state need to be bolder at low resolution and size as is the case with this page.

Buttons and text input fields do not work yet. I just tried to get all of Adam's pencil story board on a page so that we could work with it.

All text and logos are filler logos. -- LonnieWormley


[http://www.launi.com/dc/NoCatAuth/NoCat030.html Test page 03]

This page has external CCS and has a re-direct to a registration page. New users will register on the second page and existing users will have 15 seconds to log in. -- LonnieWormley


[http://www.launi.com/dc/NoCatAuth/NoCat05.html Test page 05]

This page has the same techniques as page one. I've made an attempt to tighten the layout and make the page as narrow as possible. I have assumed that everyone will have to accept the user agreement to gain access. -- LonnieWormley


[http://www.launi.com/dc/NoCatAuth/NoCat06.html Test page 06]

This page addresses some of ColinDabritz's comments on page 05. There are no background graphics that go wacky when you change the font size in the browser.

I have also removed the radio box for not agreeing to the terms and have them consolidated into on table row. -- LonnieWormley


[http://www.launi.com/dc/NoCatAuth/NoCat07.html Test page 07]

This page does not use tables. It should be of interest to PocketPC users because it is only 292 pixels wide. I do not remember how many pixels wide the display is but here is a start.

This page totally uses floating boxes for positioning of text. If the browser window goes below 256 pixels wide some text may overlap. -- LonnieWormley
