Before we start:

Footer feature is available in ShortPoint versions 5.3.3.22 and above, so please make sure you have the latest version of ShortPoint installed on your site ( you can check our latest version number on our roadmap page, and you can download the latest version from our download page )


In this article, we will show you how to create a simple footer using ShortPoint and apply it to your SharePoint/Office 365 site. So let us start!


Step 1: 

Go to ShortPoint Generator page ( Site Settings > ShortPoint Dashboard > ShortPoint Generator )


Step 2: 

Give your Footer element a Name, and change the Type of the newly created element into Footer.


Note: Generated ShortPoints of Element type cannot be applied on the site as a Footer.

Note: Using Placeholders ( %%attribute%% ) are limited to Generated ShortPoints of Element type. Placeholders, when added to Generated ShortPoints of type Footer type will not have any special behavior and will be rendered in the Footer as-is.




Step 3: 

Design the Footer content.


You will notice that once you have changed the Type drop-down menu item into Footer, automatically a section has been inserted into the Generator HTML Editor, and that's because Footer feature works best with section items.


For the purpose of this article, I will change Panel content color to white, update the section Horizontal alignment to center, and change the section background color. But feel free to apply any element customizations you want.


Step 4: 

Save your Changes.
