Has anyone need to/added an accessibility footer to every single Blackboard page? Currently, I only see Bb's footer on the Course's Entry Point page.
Had a thought how I could hack injecting footer .div code on each page, then control it via .css.
How it works in course pages? Does it overlap the lateral menu?
In this particular case, the CSS I found for the footer would indeed cut off the bottom of the screen. This was just a quick proof-of-concept.
You can do that with only css (though limited to text only):
content: "YOUR TEXT HERE";
bottom: .8em !important;
That seems to work brilliantly! the text limitation is just a CSS thing?
Found some info via CSS Content | CSS-Tricks
If you'd like to insert something into the HTML to use for a CSS content purpose (but nothing else), you could use the new data- attribute prefix in HTML5.
Great Ian Goh!
With "content" the things you can add are limited. I did not know "data"... let us know if you try it out!
Ian Goh did you get anything working with CSS content? I would love to be able to add a hyperlink in the footer, but have not had time to experiment with the trick you found...
The link itself is part of the Language pack so product.legal.accessibility can be changed to any url.
You could change this to have your institutions accessibility webpage as well/or Bb's.
You would have to change the CSS to remove the Bb logo though.
Thanks - but the problem is, the default footer doesn't appear in every page...
