Customize Captive Portal %%QUESTION%%

Hi,

 

I'm translating the login page replacement message on a FortiGate 80F.

 

How can I modify the "Please enter your username and password to continue" contained into %%QUESTION%% variable.

 

Ok, I can delete the reference and insert a static text, but I'd like to find out some better solution.

 

Thanks

Hello @JakeBlues,

 

                   Thank you for using the Community Forum. Could you let me know if you have tried to customize the replacement messages of the FortiGate using the below docs

 

https://docs.fortinet.com/document/fortigate/6.4.0/administration-guide/131140/replacement-messages

 

We hope this document will be helpful. Please us know if you have any further questions.

 

Thanks and regards,

Hi @Anonymous ,

 

yes, and it orked perfectly. My question is how to translate %%QUESTION%%.

 

I see two ways:

 

  1. Replace it with static text. Fast but it's not the correct way to do that.
  2. Edit %%QUESTION%% somewhere. Where? Is it possible?

Of couse I would like to avoid solution 1 because it's bad practice to hide static strings inside a page, instead of variables.

 

Any idea?

 

Thanks

Not sure what exact replacement page have QUESTION variable and what it is. But it must be fed or used from/by a script (Javascript?) so you can't change but only remove if you don't want to have it there.
