The PageHeader and PageFooter feature allows authors to apply predefined headers and footers to their documents using a simple drop-down menu. Users with publish rights can also define new headers and footers or edit existing options using these links.

Applying a Header or Footer

    *Note: Publish rights ARE NOT required to apply a Header or Footer.

  1. If you wish to view the headers or footers available to your site, click the down arrow next to the PageHeader or PageFooter link. A dropdown menu displaying the available options will appear.

  2. Select the name of the desired header or footer from the corresponding drop-down menu.

  3. When you preview your document, the header or footer will appear along with your content.

  4. If you wish to remove a header or footer, simply set the corresponding drop-down menu to None.

  5. Should you need to update a header or footer, the updates will be seen in each document to which it has been applied.

Defining a Brand New Header or Footer

    *Note: Publish rights required

  1. Click the Edit link next to PageHeader or PageFooter link. A window displaying existing headers/footers will appear.

  2. Click the link labeled Add new header or Add new footer link found at the bottom of the pop out window. An editable text box will appear, along with several drop-down menus and a 'Name' field. In the image below, the Ads new header link was clicked.


    • Use the Name field to specify a name for your header/footer. The name you enter in this field will appear in the drop-down menu from which document authors select which header/footer to apply.

    • Use the Site drop-down menu to specify whether your header/footer will be visible externally, internally or both.

    • Use the Status drop-down menu to can specify whether your header/footer will be Active (i.e. available to document authors) or Inactive (i.e. unavailable to document authors).

  3. Enter the content of the header/footer in the text box. You must use HTML if you wish to format the text.

    *** Users who only use the WYSIWYG editor to create documents may open a WYSIWIG document and style their desired header/footer as they wish (e,g, applying links, images, etc.). Once the header/footer looks right, toggle to the HTML editor and copy all the HTML code out of the document editor into the appropriate text box, Header or Footer.
