Hello, posted some question here http://www.virtualmin.com/node/9898
The /etc/usermin/custom-lang method works but how can we make it more… organic? IE8 is always complaining (via annoying pop-ups, Firefox is silent in that matter) that the picture comes from another site, another cert, unauthenticated content and stuff. Can we grab the image locally somehow, not via URL?
I know it’s not a problem but my users don’t. Got a lot of phone calls lately
Sorry, I saw your message there and hadn’t yet gotten around to digging into what that problem may be
Is the URL for your control panel “https” while your logo is just “http”? Maybe you can try putting the logo in a place where you can access it with the same domain name and both with “https”, it’s possible that could help.
Of course I tried but you know IE, makes a big deal about everything trying to “keep you safe” - but it has another url so… another cert warning.
PS: in Firefox via https…whatever… now doesn’t load at all > the broken image icon.
I noticed someting unusual in Usermin - there are 3 Romanian characters with problems in the e-mails; how can I solve this? Here they are with their coresponding mambo…joomla
ă >>> & # 2 5 9 ;
î >>> = E E
ş >>> & # 3 5 1 ;
I’ve put some spaces between the chars to get them in your forum (it prints of course the diacritics)
That’d probably be a bug. Though character encodings are tricky…mail can have different encodings, and users can set their preferred encoding in Usermin.
But you might file a ticket and see what Jamie says on the subject. He understands this stuff way better than I do.
One solution would be to do the following :
Under your Webmin base directory (typically /usr/libexec/webmin or /usr/share/webmin), create the sub-directories mylogos and mylogos/unauthenticated
Put your images into mylogos/unauthenticated
In your custom-lang file, use HTML like <img src=/mylogos/unauthenticated/logo.png>
It doesn’t work either, I still get the broken image icon in any browser. The path is this one: /usr/libexec/webmin/mylogos/unauthenticated/logo.jpg , in /etc/webmin/custom-lang I have
session_prefix=, the path is correct in the browser: https://something:XXXX/mylogos/unauthenticated/logo.jpg …
So what is wrong? Man it can’t be that hard to add an image to an web interface Hope it’s only a typo.
What happens if you just open that image directly in your browser - what error is displayed?
No errors, just keeps presenting the login form. With the broken icon on top.
Sorry, I made a mistake … you really want to put your logo in the existing /usr/libexec/webmin/unauthenticated directory, and then refer to it with HTML like <img src=/unauthenticated/mylogo.png>
It works. In Usermin too, by adding the dir. to /usr/libexec/usermin/ With 0 warnings in any browser. Thanks!
It’s a small thing but it changes and personalizes our page. And we have great logos, worth showing them around
