Modify Welcome Page

In it is relatively easy to modify playSMS look and feel. A template engine has been added and now using Twitter Bootstrap 3.

Welcome Page

Welcome Page on

Above screenshot is a welcome page displayed after successful login. Most users probably want to change that page.

These are methods available to change that page:

  1. Edit common file plugin/themes/common/templates/page_welcome.html
  2. Add themes specific template file to override common file. For example if your active themes is flatly, then you can add your own page_welcome.html in plugin/themes/flatly/templates/
  3. Add another themes specific file. For example if your active themes is flatly, theme you can add page_welcome.php in plugin/themes/flatly/

playSMS + Kannel + CentOS 6 final + Huawei E220 unlocked


Sedang browsing2 nemu link ini. Tulisannya cukup jelas dan isinya sepertinya benar (tapi saya belum mencobanya).

URL tutorial:

Sedikit aja di-edit pada bagian instalasi playSMS nya:

tar zxvf playsms- -C /usr/local/src/
cd /usr/local/src/playsms-
mkdir -p /opt/lampp/htdocs/playsms
mkdir -p /var/spool/playsms
mkdir -p /var/log/playsms
cp -rR * /opt/lampp/htdocs/playsms/
/opt/lampp/bin/mysqladmin -u root -p create playsms
/opt/lampp/bin/mysql -u root -p playsms < /usr/local/src/playsms-9.5.2/db/playsms.sql
cd bin/
cp playsmsd playsmsd_start playsmsd.php /usr/local/bin
cp playsms /etc/default/

Sebagai catatan, tutorial ini juga bisa dijadikan acuan untuk instalasi playSMS versi selanjutnya pada platform yang sama dan mungkin dengan modem2 lainnya selain Huawei E220.

Semoga tidak salah paste URL, dan ini adalah URL dari penulis aslinya (maklum tutorial playSMS banyak artikel dan URL isinya bisa sama alias copas2an).


playSMS in Windows

I got a good news to share with you guys: playSMS works in Windows !

My test environment was:

  • Laptop
  • Windows 7 Home Edition
  • Cygwin 1.7.7
  • Kannel 1.4.3
  • playSMS
  • WampServer 2.0i
  • GSM modem Q2406B, USB (now its freakin cheap! USD 25-35 in Jakarta)

I’m happy, it really works :) All playSMS feature seems to be running properly, including the push update of delivery status (from Sent to Delivered).
