This statement is actually a load of cobblers. I just used my Linux Laptop
and my son's Windows PC to connect to the WMT pretend AP and that 'page Title'
doesn't appear. On going back to the phones, I've realised that this is
nothing more than a banner inserted by Android to allow users to decide
whether to continue to use the network or not (it has the three vertical dots
to indicate that a menu is available. So the content is presumably being
served by nginx but somehow Android 7.0's browser is messing with the content,
presumably due to something being done in the Splash Page.
On the laptop and PC, I don't get the Alert that Android puts up and which
automatically routes the user to the Sign In page when clicked. Instead, the
machine simply connects to the AP in the normal way and nothing happens until
the user opens his browser. This then puts up the Sign In Page and everything
works fince from then on.
