Customizing the dynamic footer in a Dashboard

Hi

In dashboards how can one go about customizing the dynamic footer which displays the bread crumb trail e.g.

Version7.9.6:Supply Chain Order Mgt> Order Management Page: Overview Page 1

portalcontent.css controls the look and feel of this footer but how can I change the content? Any tips on which xml file to play around with or any relevant hints will be much appreciated.

Thanks

    Hi Madan

    Thank you for your response.

    I did check those articles earlier on. But my problem is to supress the default content of the footer or replace it with custom text.I dont need to implement a bread crumb trail.

    I have installed firebug as well and I can track the relevant css file but would you have any clue as to which file is controlling the content of this footer? Venkat's blog does have a tip regarding the same but it hasn't led to me any tangible results yet.

    Thanks

    Thank you!

    But how do I customize the dynamic text in the footer which depends on the navigation path?

    Hi

    Figures its a fairly simple fix.

    Use the PDF and Print Control Properties of the Dashboard Editor from the dashboard itself to customize the footer for each of the dashboard pages.

    Thank you everyone!
