We understand that each business has different preferences when it comes to their Help Center. That's why we have added over 40 new customization abilities to our Articles product over the past year. Now, you can completely personalize your experience by choosing between different color schemes, layouts, fonts, and more!

In addition to new customization options, we've also made several improvements to Articles management, making it even easier for you to create, find, and organize information.

Let's take a look at these new features in more detail...

New customization options

Help Center homepage

  • Header: new top header can be styled separately to include your logo and multiple links.

  • Hero block: add a personalized welcome message, adjust hero block height, upload image, adjust search bar, and enable fade.

  • Articles section: handpick specific articles to feature on your Help Center homepage.

  • Content section: create a content block to call out any brand messages or updates you'd like to highlight to your customers.
