Issue

If you're using a Modern Team Site or a Modern Communication site, the ShortPoint Footer has suddenly started being displayed in the middle of the page. This is currently affecting all public ShortPoint versions.




Reason

Microsoft has recently released some silent updates to their HTML page structure. Silent updates are updates which are not publicly planned nor documented, so ShortPoint has to react in real time to these changes.


Solution

Please add the following custom JavaScript code in the Theme Builder to solve the issue:


Step 1. Open the Theme Builder

Launch the ShortPoint Theme Builder.



Step 2. Navigate to the Custom JS section

Navigate to the Utilities category, then click on Custom JavaScript



Step 3. Add the fix code

Add the following code in the text box:

shortpoint.$( document ).ready(function() {
  shortpoint.$("#shortpoint_footer_scroll_placeholder").appendTo("[class*='scrollRegionFlexRoot']");
});


Press Apply and finally Publish.


That's it, the footer should now be displayed in the appropriate region.
