The ability to change the colours and add pictures would be a bonus, but should be done right at the end I reckon.
More important now is to finish off the groups and dropdown menus etc. It would be awesome if you could add your own custom dropdown menu's and fields and also remove unused fields.
If you have a look at DMASoftlab, they got the "profiles" working very nicely with their "SERVICES" function. DMASoft is designed for the WISP application but could also be used for hotspots. The downside, for me, about DMA is the fact that it runs off Linux and not as a standalone like Usermanager and Mikrotik.

The aestetics of UM is not that important right now, the functionality is far more important.
I would like to build in a limited accounting function into UM (invoicing etc). If I decide to go with DMA, I also have to build that functionality in, so I'd rather do it on UM so we have everything in one place.
So what do we really want?
1) Ability to add, remove, move buttons, dropdown menus etc on the UM page
2) Ability to code the above buttens/functions using scripting (similar or same to normal MT scripting)
3) Abiity to access (read and write) the Usermanager Database.
4) Ability to add more tables to the current UM DB. (For example add a boolean table: "AcccountPaid" which could be used to disable that user if still unpaid after 10 days etc)
The development team has focused a lot on Hotspot tickets etc, which is nice for hotspot users, but we don't really have a use for it. We need a system where a secratary could login and in layman's terms see a user reached his/het cap limit, add another 2GB, invoice and move over to the next client. Whatever system we use, DMA etc, we would have to recode many parts anyway. If I could have my way I'd much rather start from scratch and build upon the Usermanager system and build the complete accounting function to my needs, and my needs are more than likely the same as another 500+ South African WISP's.
