New Request: It would be nice to be able to change the title of the web pages. Since I have more than one OpenSprinkler, it is helpful to change the title on each instance of the mobile app so that I can easily tell from the title of the page as to which one I am working on. Right now, I just modify the code directly, but I have to back out my changes each time I update the app. Plus, not everyone may be using it for a “Sprinkler System”.August 14, 2013 at 4:08 pm #25344
Thanks for the suggestion. This actually used to be an option but was removed since I switched to the logo for the header on the main page. I understand people have multiple sprinklers and are trying to differentiate between them. I kind of want to avoid adding another configuration option unless needed. With that said, is there any information on the OS or the server hosting the web app that could identify the OS? In other words, can I show an IP in the page title that would alleviate this problem? Doesn’t have to be the IP, I am just making a suggestion.
Right now, I modify the title already so this is not a difficult thing to add. Also, I don’t think I am too worried about people using an OpenSprinkler for non-sprinkler reasons since my web app is 100% tailored for that use scenario. I understand the OS/OSPi is a very diverse piece of hardware however it would be almost impossible to design a UI that kept that in mind, that also provided the functions needed for a sprinkler system.August 14, 2013 at 4:46 pm #25345
It definitely isn’t a big deal. But just to be clear, I was talking about the page title (as it shows in the tab, task list, default name for bookmark, etc), not where the OpenSprinkler logo is. Both systems are hosted on the same web server, so right now, I just refer to the URL to see which system I’m connected to. I have no problem with it being kept as-is, as more configuration options does tend to confuse users at times. Just please keep it in mind if you ever have so many options that you end up creating an “Advanced” setup. 😀August 14, 2013 at 6:24 pm #25346
I actually already put most options into an “Advanced Config” on the installer. I understand which title you are referring to but trying to figure out the best way to accomplish your goal. I think it is a good feature and something multiple people are having to deal with. I know some users are using the new theme system to distinguish between various locations but of course that only gives you two varieties and no way to distinguish from a bookmark or from a browser tab.
Would using the location from the weather help? For example, “Dallas OpenSprinkller: Run-Once Program.”
