I apologize if anyone will worry about this thicket. It's an evolution of the old ticket #11975 (new defect) which was never assigned to anyone.
I tried writing there but I think that because it is old, then nobody will reach it anymore. this is why I opened a new ticket.

I always have had troubles in adding or editing the openvpn configurations in the openvpn luci page.

It has more troubles not due to openvpn but due to the luci configuration pages. I'm doing something to fix them but the only I can do is about default configurations or fixing brocken options or depencencis.

I need an help to make the pages working and I don't know neither about UCI, lua, cgi, and html language;

The worst trouble about that page is the bug of the "clent_tap_bridge" configuration: every thing you do there, will create the "client_tap_bridge" configuration, WHEN it doesn't already exist (so finally I let it stay there and do the rest). You can't create a name configuration that already exist, it is right but you can't create a new configuration with different names because the box to set the name doesn't work. So you have to chose a different configuration (it will have a standard name) and you have to fully edit it (so the preconfiguration doesn't help) and later you have to rename it (I do it in the openvpn config file), because the scripts don't load a configuration whith a name that already exist.


1) The box that should be used to chose a personalized name doesn't work. And should be nice if it was also editable whithout the need to create a completally new configuration.

2) We need a working openvpn page. It isn't an openvpn bug, we need a luci specialist fixing the page. I tried looking where to change but I don't understand anything. I have some ideas but I can't find where to edit the scripts, where they look for data and so on. :( :( :(

3) I think to be able to check and fix the configurations and the openvpn options that you see in the configuration page, so this isn't a primary needs

Thanks in advance to everyone who can help
