Customize block page

Here you can post about the issues related to modifications performed manually (not through the kiosk wizard). Example: swapped kernel, added 3rd party modules or files.
Please describe in detail what has been changed and hopefully other kiosk user will be able to help.
Porteus team wont resolve bugs posted in this category as we support only modifications made by the kiosk wizard.

Customize block page

Post#1 by joelg » 06 Jun 2017, 18:47

Hello,

We are using a whitelist, with Chrome. We also have the address bar/toolbar disabled. When a user goes to a blocked page they get a notification website that the page is blocked. Is it possible to customize this page? We'd like to customize it to be bilingual French/English, and add a line in it to advise users to ALT-HOME to get back to start, as currently they are basically stuck there until the system times out if they don't know that shortcut.

And advice would be appreciated!

Joel

Hello Joel,

As far as i know there is no possibility to customize this page. Perhaps you could experiment with some Chrome extension which supports redirection to a homepage (or ideally previous page).

Thanks

Thanks for the reply, we've tried a few different re-directors, but none of them quite worked how we'd like.

Do you know where that blockpage comes from? I don't think it is a Google thing, so it must be something in Porteus.

Unfortunately it is a Google thing (otherwise we would be able to customize this page and add 'Back' button to it).

BTW: Alt+LeftArrow shortcut allows going back to the previous page.
