Captive Portal Status

Captive Portal

Affected Version:
Affected Architecture:


1) Have no Captive Portal Zones defined. From the dashboard select Status->Captive Portal
It should have a normal heading etc with no status information to display. Instead there is "Captive Portal Status ()" and the shortcut items are not formatted nicely.

2) Select Services->Captive Portal. Now there is logic somewhere that takes the "Captive Portal" item off the Status menu. That happens if there are no Zones defined. I guess the intent there is that nobody can get to the Captive Portal Status page if there are no Zones defined.
But there are shortcut links on Services->Captive Portal that take you to the related status.
And if you are on the dashboard or other pages, then the Status->Captive Portal menu item appears.
Item (2) seems to be the behavior in 2.2.5 also.

a) Make Status->Captive Portal have a good display in the case when there are no Zones.
b) Remove any logic that tries to add/remove "Captive Portal" from the Status menu - that is all too smart for its own good.

Other services are happy to display "null status" when they have not yet been enabled but someone chooses their status page. Why not make Captive Portal work the same.
