if you did the 0.7.5 update via Diva’s convenient Update function, you will have seen an attention box saying to read the release notes. yesterday we discussed what to edit regarding the new group functionality and it seems appropriate to complete her instructions (plus i am doing it right now for the SoaS downloads!) =)
Diva has added a TOS page and the MyWorld.ini file needs to be manually edited to activate it
neither the group aspect nor the TOS part needs to be done to use SoaS unless you use Erik N’s network hack like Kate Booth does for some of her students’ projects. since SoaS is intended to be used as a single-user workspace, you don’t benefit from setting up groups or TOS
for the sake of being complete, i am adding both groups and TOS to the SoaS downloads just in case and also because SoaS operates on port 9100 and not the default port 9000
to add the TOS part, copy and paste the following to the very end of the MyWorld.ini file. change parameters if you need to, by default the TOS is not presented. also make certain that the quotes are pasted correctly – sometimes a copied HTML quotation mark is not the same character as a typed text file quotation mark
;; Not enabled by default. Enable it if you like by setting this to true
Enabled = false
;; Tell the users what this is about
Message = “Please read and agree to the Terms of Service”
;; Should local users be shown the TOS on first login?
ShowToLocalUsers = false
;; Should foreign users be shown the TOS on first HG login?
ShowToForeignUsers = true
;; Change the text on that page for your own TOS.
;; You’ll find it under /WifiPages/tos.html
TOS_URL = “http://127.0.0.1:9100/wifi/tos.html”
