KB User's Guide - Topics Tab - Create Topic Footers

This document describes how to set up topic-dependent footers on the Topics tab.

Background:

In addition to the footer functionality available in the KB's document editor (see KB User's Guide - Documents Tab - How to Define and Apply Headers and Footers in a Document for details) it is possible to set up topic-dependent footers that only appear on documents assigned to a particular topic. Unlike footers created in the document editor, topic-dependent footers appear at the very bottom of the document, underneath the Feedback section. Users with publish rights can use the instructions below to define and style these footers.

NOTE: Currently topic-dependent footers are only available for Level 5 Topics. If your KB site's topic structure does not extend to level 5, you will not be able to use this feature.

Directions:

  1. Begin by logging into the KB Admin Tools.

  2. Click on the Topics tab.

  3. On the left-hand menu, click on the 'Level 5 Topics' link.


  4. To add a description to an existing footer, fill out the field labeled Topic Description/ footer (up to 3000 chars appearing in docs associated with this topic ): and click on the Update  button. 


  5. If you do not have an existing level 5 footer, you can fill out both the Level 5 Topic Name and Level 5 Topic Description / footer fields and click on the Add a new level 5 topic button.


  6. Footers you have specified for the Level 5 Topic will appear. If a document is assigned more than one level 5 topic, all footers will appear in the order established in the Order column on the Level 5 Topics screen.


Advanced:

It is possible to apply custom styling to by overriding the below class in your site's custom CSS:

.topic-footer
