Changing the Favicon

Favicon (short for favorite icon) is a small icon, usually 16x16 pixels, used by web browsers to identify your website. The favicon appears in the browser tab for the website, the bookmarks list, and the browsing history list.

To change the favicon:

  1. Hover over the default favicon and click on it
  2. Now, you can add a favicon in one of two options available: Using a URL or Upload an image
  • Using a URL: Paste the image URL from any external source and click on Insert

  • Upload an image: Choose your file from the Drive or upload an image from your local computer storage and click on Insert

Pro-tip

Always use an image with minimalistic and square dimensions (in pixels).
Document360 resizes any image you upload to fit the canvas.


Changing the knowledge base Layout

You can choose a Center layout or a Fluid layout for your knowledge base as per your requirement.
Center layout will fit your content more to the center in a browser window
Fluid layout will extend your content to the edges of a browser window. In this layout option, you can choose between Small and Medium indent.


Replace the default "YourLogo" that displays in the top left of the knowledge base by uploading your own.

  1. Hover over "Your Logo" and click upload.
  2. Choose your file from the Drive or paste an image URL in the field
  3. Click Insert.

Alternatively, if you want to have text, say a company name or a tag line instead of a logo, select the text field.
