I already installed the nodosplash on my MR3040, and it worked perfectly, my question and request is how can I put my personal "captive portal" I created one and has a index.html page and css folder and images folder, but when I put it inside the htdocs directory of nodogsplash it doesn't work, when I renamed the index.html to splash it works but without css animation and some pictures are not appearing.
So can you help me please, on how can I do it properly, is there any places in my css files should I rename index to splash or is there any location in the config files where should I define splash page as the page with "index" name.

I am using Unifi AP flashed to OpenWrt Barrier Breaker 14.07.
As far as i understand, my first mistake was trying to set up nodogsplash to router, not AP.
I tried guide at official site https://wiki.openwrt.org/doc/howto/wireless.hotspot.nodogsplash (down: NoDogSplash on OpenWRT 12.09+ Access Point)
but failed, since the steps arent explained much and im not good with this stuff. Is there possibility that you will create some day guide for AP ? If not, could you please explain a bit further the steps ?
Sorry for inconvinience, many thanks for your time and replies.
