Generic URL

For Hosted CanIT we provide a generic domain:


which can be used for MX records, as described by going to My Domains->My Domains and selecting the "Show Me the Generic MX Records" beneath our default MX records.

You can also use this URL as for the BaseURLs in Setup->Templates so that it will be used as the link to include in emails (eg. notifications, training links, etc.). There is further discussion of custom BaseURLs in the Login Page section below.

To customize your theme go to Setup->Theme Customization. In the Custom CSS properties: box at the bottom of the page, place the following text after clearing the box:

To turn off the footer banner:

All base themes include a reference to Roaring Penguin and CanIt, including the version number and a link to our website. If you would like to remove our labeling completely, you can hide this element with the following CSS:

   #footer_powered { display: none; }

To disable users ability to change themes:

Your theme customization settings only apply to the base theme that you are viewing when the customization is created. You can change between base themes using the drop-down box at the bottom of each page. The default base theme on Hosted is RP-Web. This can be customized for onsite implementations by editing the config.php file.

Having that box visible means that a normal user can easily change to a new base theme which will not have you branding. If you would like to remove their ability to do so, you can hide that box with the following CSS:

   form.theme-selection { display: none; }

If you decide to make your customizations for a base theme that is not the default, you will have to manually make changes to the database so that all users of that realm will use the non-default base theme, otherwise they will never see your customization unless the manually changed to it with the same drop-down box. Also note that if you are going to use a non-default base theme but would like to bring your theme to the login page (as below), you will have to write a second customization using the default base theme because the login page will only ever use that theme.

After having added the above CSS even administrators will lose access to the theme changer. You can ignore all of your theme customization by appending 'disable_theme_customization=1' to any URL. Modern versions of both Firefox and Chrome also have an Inspect Element tool from the context menu that will let you override CSS, so you could also disable hiding of the element that way.

To display your logo on login page:

For on-site appliances, the base theme that is used for the login page is defined by the default set in the config.php file. CanIt-PRO installations will automatically use the customizations that have been set for that base theme. For CanIt-Domain-PRO systems, the login page will use the customizations set from the 'base' realm.

For users of Hosted CanIt or for individual realm in CanIt-Domain-PRO, branding set up in that realm can be used for the login page as well. This can be done by going to Setup->Templates and setting the base URL to use '?rlm=example-org' where 'example-org' is the name of the realm where the customization has been defined. Sub-realms will inherit the settings from parents you could also set their BaseURL to use the parent's branding in the case of a reseller-client setup. Setting the BaseURL for the parent will automatically propagate to all sub-realms unless they are specifically overridden. The full Base URL should look like:

   https://emailfilteringservice.net/canit?rlm=example-org or

For Hosted CanIt users, it should be noted that this link will always use the customizations set up for the RP-Web base theme. If you have your customizations set up for a different base theme, they will be ignored because the base theme that is shown is tied to the user login session which has yet to be established. CanIt-Domain-PRO users, while having the ability to set a different base theme to use, still cannot have a different base theme for different realms on the login page.
