As far as i know there are no other "external" pages. The Webinterface 
of IPFire has an own design and several themes, i think you already saw

Actually the hoster is able to change the Title (The top-title in the 
screenies like "Login" or on the other page "My private HotSpot") maybe 
we can add a Logo but we have to decide which dimensions are allowed. 
This is difficult as many companies have different dimensions of Logos. 
Some are 4:3, others are like 27:9 and so on.
What do other people think?

No. I think if we have something like a "background-color" instead of a 
picture, we should the hoster let configure it, so the people are able 
to adpat the colors to their own corporate identity. So if you woul like 
to work with gradients or similar, i would recommend to make it 
Michael, what do you think?
