Hotspot Developer needed.

Thu Sep 12, 2013 3:34 am

HI all,

I figured I would post here before advertising somewhere else and get a fellow Mikrotik user to assist rather than an external developer.

We have a project underway that requires some advanced hotspot pages made up, basic brief below:

I have attached the PDF with the basic brief, you can also view it here: http://www.nuskope.com.au/images/HotspotPagelogin.pdf


-------

NOTES:
I am a php developer myself so many of the components I can do (payment gateways ect) The primary job is the design (im no good at making things look good) and the Mikrotik->authentication link that will enable the features im after.

I am willing to accept a quote for the job or negotiate an hourly rate.

please comment below, or email: Michael@nuskope.com.au

I'm just curious how exactly would you figure out if they've watched an ad or not. Checking whether it was previously accessed by the same MAC is one thing, but if the user clicks refresh, you'd get a false positive, and the user will effectively be skipping ads, and no advertiser wants that. Also keep in mind most mobile devices don't have Flash.

there are ways with HTML5 and a little bit of JavaScript.
one thought I had was the JavaScript is what forwards the device onto the 'internet' and that script could be on a 15 second delay while the 15 second add runs..

Another way is for the add to display and once it does it provides a link out of the walled garden. The only way to get to that particular page is from the advertising page. [via a randomized link or something]

Hi,

Basically, I had achieved MikroTik hotspot to offer free access to guest with a simple registration by entering the following information: -

First Name
Last Name
Phone
Email Address

The above information will be capture into WordPress databases and addition to that, MAC address will be captured too. Basically I am using WordPress as the registration and login system.

So, when a return guest join the WiFi again, the guest will not need to register because his/her MAC address was captured.

Somehow I had encountered one issue that a Blackberry device can't pass the MAC address so it captured a blank MAC address in the WordPress database.

The source of above configuration is from http://cotswoldpc.blogspot.com/p/mikrot ... imple.html

Considering it's been over a month now, have you filled the role?

I do microtik hotspot development as part of my day job, and can do better imo in personal projects.
