The header contains elements such as your logo, quick search and quick links to all Linchpin apps. It's accessible from every intranet page.

What is a header?

The header is an element on the very top of all of your intranet pages. It's placed above the navigation and contains your custom background image, your logo, a quick search and several app icons. You can also create new pages from within the header.

Some elements, like the logo, will also be displayed on the login screen.


You can customize your header to fit your needs. See the available customizations below.

How to access the header configuration

Navigate to Confluence administration > Linchpin Theme > Configuration > Header.
