Hi. When loading the homepage our backend-website sometimes respond back with 4xx or 5xx and displays an error page that is not mobile-friendly. We would like to replace it with a custom error page instead. Preferable the same error page we use for custom error page. Could you add this as an new feature?

Might be nice to be able specify which HTTP codes to show different pages. Alternatively any HTTP-code that is not 2xx should show an error page.

I am trying to get some html code <input type="date"/> to be displayed in swedish format.

Currently it is always shown as english us format which is confusing for our users.

Is it possible to change the browser or system language?

I'm trying to link and play Youtube videos through KB, but am pretty disappointed in the layout. The standard webview player controls are pretty tiny for my kiosk tablet, which makes it difficult for students to move through the video. It also autoloads CC, which I do not want (the Youtube autogenerated CC is way off and confusing). I've tried playing around with the CSS and the iFrame settings in an attempt to fix this, but nothing seems to work.


Are there any ways to change the default controls/settings for your video player?

I cannot revert my setting to 0 seconds per startup.

When restarting the kiosk-browser-app the page is stuck on
"Please wait..."
I belive that this setting is the cause of it.

Hello - this seems to be a recurring issue. The android device is definitely online, Kiosk Browser is running and we can accessing it via Team Viewer to confirm wifi access. However, the device has not been seen by the Kiosk Browser system since yesterday. How do we resolve this to ensure the device is continuously seen when online? Thanks

Hi, I noticed on another post that the request for the device name (%DEVICENAME%) to be used as part of the Kiosk Title was added.

https://kioskbrowser.userecho.com/topics/36-device-name-in-kiosk-title/


As far as I can see - although I haven't tested this extensively - this wasn't added to the URL or javascript options


Would it be possible to add this variable for use with URL and as a javascript function to retrieve the device name?


This would be really useful for us as the only way I can see of doing it at the moment is creating a manual key/value pair based upon the uniqueID in a backend database. This is liable to lose synchronisation when the tablets are swapped out due to breakages etc and the db is not updated and as we want to use it as an identifier for permissions. Setting the device name is always done before deployment.

Hi there - we have bought 20 licenses to be used on Samsung TAB Actives. During a round of user testing we discovered that you can get out of the app by pressing two buttons at once - the home button and the active apps button. This brings you to a list of open apps - even if there is none open, if you then swipe from the right you can access all the devices features - have you experience this before? can you please help?

I am using Kiosk Browser at my tennis club on a cheap, nameless Chinese tablet (running Android 4.4.2) to access a court booking facility. Trouble is, I often find that the tablet has dropped out of Kiosk Browser and is showing the launcher. I do not know how this is happening or how to find that out.
Any suggestions?

In an effort to prevent any background app updates or notifications, we're connecting our Android tablets to a wifi network that will only have SurveyMonkey.com and Kiosk Browser whitelisted. Every other connection on the internet will be blacklisted.


What is the address that Kiosk Browser uses to communicate back fourth with the web gui management tool?

Our setup hosts a webservice directly on the android device so the home url for kioskbrowser is localhost. Still, the webservice needs internet connection and I would like to have the connection reset if KioskBrowser cannot access a certain adress (even if the wifi is still connected). I would propose to let Kioskbrowser check the availability of a changeable adress i.e. the Google DNS instead of checking if the home url is available.
