Create a banner

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Subscription Administrators and Editors can create a banner that appears at the top or bottom of the page on both classic and modern pages.

Go into the help editor window by clicking the green Add Help Item button.

Select the Blank Help Item template:

In the Viewer / Media Type drop down, select Banner.

Give it a title, then click into the Banner Content field to start adding your content. Add a link in the banner by clicking the Link Help Item drop down. Learn more about adding links.

You can change the background color of the banner and the text color under Banner Settings.

You can position the banner at the top of the screen or the bottom with the Position drop down.

You can also configure if the banner will appear in the help panel.

If you have multiple banners on a page, you can set the Priority to set the ordering of the different banners on the page.

The banner can also be configured to auto show on load, which will automatically display the banner when a user visits the page.


Once a user clicks the "x" to close out the banner, the banner will no longer autoload.

If your goal is to auto load the banner every time a user visits and you don't want the user to be able to cancel the banner from autoloading, you can hide the 'X' in the banner with this CSS code snippet:

a[title="Close Banner"] {
display: none;

You can insert this snippet by clicking the View Source icon:
