WLC AireOS 8.0 - how to set font-color for integrated webauth/weblogin?
up to AireOS 7.6 I was able to set the font-color of the internal webauth/weblogin page using html-codes, for example like this:
Headline: Welcome to our <font color="red">guest</font>-network!
Message: You need a valid <font color="blue">user</font> to login.
Now with AireOS 8.0 this doesn't work anymore. When I try to set a headline or message with font-tags I get "Error while setting headline." (or "...message.") when I hit apply. I have to remove the font-tag to save the weblogin page.
#CLIWEB-6-CLIWEB_INVALID_HTML_TAGS_USED: [PA] cli_web_api.c:1748 The Customization message field has invalid html tags #CLIWEB-6-CLIWEB_INVALID_HTML_TAGS_USED: [PA] cli_web_api.c:1663 The Headline field has invalid html tags
So, how can we now set different font colors/styles like in previous releases? Using external or uploading selfmade pages is not an option.
Since your using code to change the default internal portal page look, its better for you just to create a custom webauth and upload that to the WLC. That is how I do my implementations as its easier for me to create a new page than trying to mess around with the internal page. As you can see, Cisco can change the way things work in every version. It might just be the fact that they no longer are allowing html code to be inserted in the default webauth/passthrough page.
