Creating a Custom Footer in your Knowledge Base can be crucial in your marketing strategy to help get users from your documentation come back to your website and give more information. 

Learn in this video how to create the Custom Footer within your Knowledge Base in Document360 to allow for your customers to navigate through your website with ease. 

What is a Custom Footer? 

You can add headers or footers at the top or bottom of your documentation. The footers are designed to provide key information with aesthetic appeal. Custom footers open potential for custom branding and link sharing. 

Creating custom footers  could seem as an advanced customization feature that requires knowledge of HTML and CSS. In that sense, most documentation solutions assume readers have some level of experience with coding. 

NOTE: Creating a custom footer will apply it to all the pages in the Knowledge Base.
