Today, I want to talk about one of my favorite topics: customizing MikroTik Hotspot login page. As a network administrator, I have always enjoyed adding personal touches to the systems and devices I manage. Customizing the MikroTik Hotspot login page not only adds a professional touch to the user experience but also gives you the opportunity to showcase your brand or personalize it with your own style. In this article, I will guide you through the process of customizing the MikroTik Hotspot login page, adding my personal touches and commentary along the way. So, let’s dive in and make your Hotspot login page shine!
Step 1: Accessing the MikroTik Router
The first step in customizing the MikroTik Hotspot login page is to access the MikroTik router’s web interface. To do this, open your favorite web browser and enter the IP address of your MikroTik router in the address bar. This will take you to the login page of the router’s web interface. Enter your username and password to log in.
Step 2: Navigating to the Hotspot Settings
Once logged in, navigate to the “IP” menu on the left-hand side of the web interface. Under the “Hotspot” submenu, click on “Hotspot Setup.” This will take you to the Hotspot Setup page where you can configure various settings related to the MikroTik Hotspot.
Step 3: Editing the HTML Files
Now comes the fun part—editing the HTML files to customize the Hotspot login page. In the Hotspot Setup page, scroll down until you find the “Create Hotspot” button. Click on it to create a new Hotspot configuration. Give your Hotspot a name, set the “Interface” to the network interface you want to use for the Hotspot, and click “Next.”
On the next page, you will see various configuration options. Scroll down until you find the “HTML” section. This is where you can edit the HTML templates that define the Hotspot login page. Click on the “HTML” button to open the HTML editor.
Here, you will see two HTML templates: “login” and “error.” The “login” template is used for the Hotspot login page, while the “error” template is used to display error messages. Click on the “login” template to start customizing the login page.
Step 4: Testing the Customized Login Page
Now that you have customized the Hotspot login page, it’s time to test it and see how it looks. To do this, open a new incognito or private browsing window in your web browser and enter the IP address of your MikroTik router in the address bar. This will take you to the customized Hotspot login page. Enter the credentials you configured in the Hotspot Setup page, and you should see your personalized login page in action.
Customizing the MikroTik Hotspot login page is a great way to add a personal touch to the user experience and showcase your brand or style. By following the steps outlined in this article, you can easily customize the Hotspot login page and make it truly yours. So go ahead, get creative, and make your MikroTik Hotspot login page stand out from the crowd!
