Customizing your Footer
What is it?
The footer is a customizable line or block of text the lives at the bottom of each page in your community.
A site administrator can add links and other useful information to a footer. This information will remain constant throughout your community.
Using the social media icons and/or links within your footer makes it simple to access your company social media pages directly from your community.
Keeping frequently used quicklinks in your community footer helps create a consistent user experience. Members of the community will know items they need on a regular basis will be accessible from the footer.
Remember that you can customize an additional footer within a space. Spaces have their own footer options as they are somewhat like a mini-community. These links could be space-specific if it is a department with commonly used resources external to the community.
