Custom Topic Footer and Header

You can create a custom topic header or footer and apply it either to the whole online documentation portal or to projects of choice. Topic headers and footers are often used to provide company information, navigation blocks or even for marketing purposes such as banners, etc. 

To create a custom header or footer, do this:

  • Go to Settings  Topic Template  Topic Master Page
  • At the top of the page, select whether you want the settings to be applied to the entire portal, or to a certain project.
  • If you want to create a custom header/footer for a certain project, you should open its settings by selecting the project in the dropdown near the top of this page and uncheck Use parent level settings to be able to edit the text fields below.
    The Use parent level settings checkbox in the Topic Master Page settings  
  • Find the text fields below that correspond to a header and/or footer.
