Customize the Content Portal Settings

You can add a custom logo, footer, title, and more by overwriting the default Heretto Deploy Portal settings.

Prepare your sitemap for portal customizations. See Prepare a Sitemap for Content Portal Customizations.
Note: Your content library may contain multiple sitemaps associated with different portal instances such as production (public) or staging (internal) instances. We recommend keeping the sitemaps associated with production (public) Heretto Deploy Portal instances on distinct branches different than the default “master” branch.

Any configuration, style, behavior, or content changes that you make to the sitemaps associated with your Heretto Deploy Portal instances are instantaneous.

Prepare the configuration file.
  1. In the __configuration folder, create a folder called portal_configuration.
  2. Upload the config.json, scripts.js, or CSS file into the __configuration/portal_configuration folder in the content library.
    Important: Do not upload empty files into Heretto CCMS.
  3. Right-click on config.json file and click the Edit Source button to open the file in the Source Editor.
    For more information, see Content Portal Configuration Reference.
Add the configuration file to your sitemap.
  1. In the content library double-click on the sitemap that you want to modify to open it in the Content Editor.
  2. Drag and drop the config.json file onto the SITEMETA element.
    The config.json file is added as a DATA element.
