Hi SumaRamki,

I think you will find that using either CSS or Decorators would be the best approach for this, so I'd recommend that you check out the following two documents as these should give you some pointers to what is possible and how you can do it.

All the best,

Hi John, thanks for the reply. when i navigate to http://<baseurl>/admin/listdecorators.action, i found many layouts. but none of them have code to change the header section ( where i have global navigation, Space directory and people directory link and Create button) at the top of each page. Not sure if i am missing something here. can you please guide me?

thanks in advance!
