Customize (Pro)! White-label your Pro paper (hide menus)


PRO badge.png   White label/rebrand your Pro paper!   Hide the standard header (menu icons) and standard footer 



This feature is available for Pro papers with a custom domain URL.   


Hide standard header (menu icons) and/or footer

  • From your Paper Settings Dashboard > Web NewspaperLayout & appearance, then Look & feel.

  • Turn custom header toggle to ON which will hide the Main Menu Screen_Shot_2014-02-27_at_7.49.32_PM.png (upper left) from your readers. 

  • Turn custom footer toggle to ON, in order to hide the footer.


 Screen Shot 2014-02-12 at 11.26.47 PM.pngIf you have turned your custom header to ON, you have hidden the Main Menu icon Screen_Shot_2014-03-06_at_12.16.12_PM.png (upper left) from your readers.  So how do you, the publisher, sign in to view your Paper Settings Dashboard and Edit mode button?  Click "ESC" on your keyboard to sign-in and the menus will once again be visible.  

If you are editing your paper via a mobile device, add /signin to the end of your paper URL and bookmark the URL for easier access. Adding the suffix  /signin will activate the log-in in place of pressing "ESC" on your keyboard.

Turning the custom footer to ON hides the custom footer but replaces it with a "powered by" footer.  The "powered by" footer can be removed by adding some code to your CSS editor (see below for instructions).



Remove the "powered by" footer *

The "powered by" footer can be hidden as well with the use of some CSS code.  This footer appears when you have turned ON the custom header toggle.

  • From your Paper Settings Dashboard > Web NewspaperLayout & appearance > Look & feel > Custom CSS to access your CSS editor.

  • Copy and paste the following CSS code in the window

    /* Hide the "Powered by" at the footer */

    .paper-footer {



  • Click Screen Shot 2014-02-11 at 10.47.52 PM.png.
