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.

  1. Go to SettingsKnowledge base siteDesign
  2. Hover over the default favicon and click on it
  3. Now, you can add a favicon in one of two options available:
    • 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 Insert
  4. You can see a preview of the chosen favicon on the right frame
  5. Click Save
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

  1. Go to SettingsKnowledge base siteDesign
  2. Under Layout, you can find Center layout and Fluid layout
    • 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.
  3. Select the desired layout
  4. Click Save

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

  1. Go to SettingsKnowledge base siteDesign
  2. Under Logo, select the desired checkbox. You can keep an image or text as logo
    To add an image as logo:
