Getting Started with ShortPoint Footer for SharePoint

In this article, we will show you how you can add your first footer to your SharePoint Site


We have prepared a few footer examples for you. You can find all templates in our demos library. You can also find accessibility footer examples you can use to show that your site is compliant with international accessibility standards.

Step 2: Open ShortPoint Generator

The next step is to create your first footer on your site.

If you are using SharePoint 2013 or 2016 on premise, go to Site settings > ShortPoint Dashboard > Generator:

open Generator

If you are using SharePoint Online and Office 365, go to Site contents > ShortPoint App > Generator:

Give a name to your footer element, and be sure to select Footer as type.

After this, you can paste your footer into the content area below. Or, alternatively, you can build your own footer right here. Do not forget to save your changes.

If you want to make some changes to your footer, go to ShortPoint Dashboard and open Generator. You can preview your footer and edit it as well. Just click the Edit button and do whatever you want. For example, I want the first column to be the last.

From the ShortPoint Dashboard, select Theme Builder, then click Customize my site.
