Distributing headers and footers for syndicated content

Distributing headers and footers for syndicated content typically involves providing the HTML that the republishing site must include.

Procedure. To distribute the HTML for syndicated content's headers and footers:
  1. View the syndicated page in your browser. For example, if your site's name is www.brightspot.com and the syndicated page's path is investor-relations, load http://www.brightspot.com/investor-relations in your browser.

  2. To view the HTML for the header, do the following:

    1. Add ?resource=header to the URL (similar to http://www.brightspot.com/investor-relations?resource=header), and reload the page.

    2. View the page source. The HTML is similar to the following:

      <header class="SyndicatedPage-header" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/WPHeader">
          <div class="SyndicatedPage-hat">
              <div class="PageHeaderTextHat">
                  The following article is republished by permission.
              </div>
          </div>
      </header>
      
  3. To view the HTML for the footer, do the following:

    1. Add ?resource=footer to the URL (similar to http://www.brightspot.com/investor-relations?resource=footer), and reload the page.

    2. View the page source. The HTML is similar to the following:

      <footer class="SyndicatedPage-footer" itemscope itemtype="https://schema.org/WPFooter">
          <div class="SyndicatedPage-disclaimer">
              Republished with permission from Brightspot Publications. © 2018, Brightspot Publications.
          </div>
      </footer>
      
  4. Distribute the HTML from steps 2–3 to the republishing sites.
