    55we felt didn't fit the needs of next generation community groups. Specifically,

    77ups, no client software and centralized management. Mainly as a replacement for portals currently using NoCat. A lot of other vendors use WiFiDog (especially the client) as a base for their solutions.

    2523   * Bulgarian 
    2624   * Japanese 
    27  * Maintain the client (hotspot users) connection by checking network activity through a ping command, instead of a javascript window (like used in NoCat). This allows PDAs and cellphones and other devices without a browser to connect. 
     25 * Maintain the client (hotspot users) connection by checking network activity through a ping command, instead of a javascript window (like used in NoCat). This allows PDAs and cellphones and other devices without javascript support to connect. 
    2826 * Support for differing types of hotspots: 
    29    * Splash Only: Users are redirected to the portal, but do not have to login in order to use services 
     27   * Splash Only mode: Users are redirected to the portal, but do not have to login in order to use services 
    3028   * Normal Mode: Users are unique and must have a valid email address in order to open an account.  
    3129 * Users are able to create a working account directly from any hotspot. New users sign on from any hotspot, create their account and are granted access for 15 minutes to confirm an email. If they don't, they are disconnected and have to sign up again. 
     
    4543   * Registration log 
    4644   * User registration report

    6058 * Node-specific content features. Wifidog-auth has a very cool local content architecture. 
    61    * Every hotspot can have a folder in the “local_content” directory. This folder can be filed by a single logo, leaving all the rest to be default content, or be completely custom (stylesheet, login page, portal page, header, etc.) 
    62    * Everything in “local_content” is templated with smarty, so there is no need for a web designer wrecking havoc on the auth server. You can edit everything in “local_content/default” even if you only speak html. 
    6359   * RSS feed support (optional, with magpierss), one feed per node (url stored in the database, works great, but no gui to edit it yet) and one network-wide RSS feed.  
    6460 * Configuration and integration
