Help with header and footer

I cannot get the header/footer figured out for a space or even globally. I will put something in there (text/macros) and nothing will show up on the pages within a space. I can get the sidebar to populate a search bar and text but not the header/footer. 

Globally nothing is set for the header/footer and even at a local space I cannot see the header or footer. 

What am I missing or doing wrong? Untitled.png

hi @Adam Janecke,


You have to define the changes using wiki markup .

I have tried using wiki markup and it worked perfectly for me. (refer screenshots)

Customise the appearance of your space with a header and footer or custom content in the sidebar. Use wiki markup to add text, links, macros and images (from the web or attached to a page in the space)


Hope this helps :-)

Thanks for that, I thought I tried using a heading type to show text but I guess I didn't in the header/footer. I was surprised that you could just type plain text into the sidebar and it appeared but in the header/footer you needed to use headings in order for text to show. Thanks again!

@Alana Fernando - I have done the same steps you've presented above but still the footer does not seem to work for me. I would like to add a copyright block in the footer so that it appears on all pages... please help!

@Adam Janecke 

So you added h1 and h2 so that your text finally appeared?
