Good suggestion Mike. Now that you mention it, as you might guess I have a lot of them running and that would be helpful.
So this is an open software project. The configuration app is right there in the root directory index.htm. If you run the file manager and editor, it is actually the file that gets teed up for editing. ctrlS will save it and then reload the app and try out your changes. I’d save a copy of the original just in case.
I’ll entertain a pull request to do what you need. Otherwise, I’ll look at it next time I’m doing work on that app.
This has become more of a problem lately with two browsers having done something to inhibit mDNS. I’ve been looking into it but not making a lot of progress. mDNS is an outgrowth of Apple’s Bonjour printer locating service, and it still works great on an iDevice with safari, which I carry around in my pocket. So I tend to minimize the impact this is having on other users. It is a problem and I’d like to come up with a better solution. Ideas are always welcome.
I know something is going right when this is the kind of problem folks are reporting. The ESP8266 nodeMCUs are sourced from various manufacturers. The blue led is part of that component and the location/brightness can vary. If it bothers you, you could always seal the edge of the power plug opening with some tape.
