26.5 Branding the Web Client

As the built-in Port 8443 administrator, you can brand your Filr web client to match your organization’s brand.

IMPORTANT:Direct Port 8443 administrators do not have rights to administer branding.

When you add a site-wide brand to your Filr site, the brand is displayed on every Filr page. You can create your brand by adding an image, by creating the brand in HTML using CSS styles, or by using a combination of both.

  • Select this option if you want to use the drop-down list to select an existing image for the branding foreground, such as a company or organizational name.

    By default, an image showing Micro Focus Filr displays here. If you replace this image, or select None, Powered by Micro Focus Filr displays below the user’s name in the upper-right corner.
