How to enable Footer in a SharePoint Modern Communication Site

SharePoint Online introduce Modern Sites and with it introduce OOTB Footer. Generally we are not used to it but one of our customer wanted to learn more about it and asked us to prepare document on it.

We thought as it has been some time, we will get detailed blog on it easily. But it seems it is been described only in Microsoft Document. And I have put reference of it in the end of this post. It is good but it seems very less described and not updated with new updates. So I am trying to explain it in as detail as I can in this footer series. So lets get started.

First of all we need to make sure the Footer is enabled in the Modern Communication SharePoint site.

Notes -
  • Footer is not available in Modern Team site as of now.  
  • Footer will be enabled by default for all new communication sites after the feature is rolled out. If you can see the footer on your modern communication site, skip this steps
Follow below steps to enable the Footer:
  • Click on “Settings”.
  • Click on “Change the look” option.
    Note – If you are not seeing this option then you do not have enough permission on this site.



  • Click on Footer

  • Make sure footer is enabled. If not enable it.

  • Once you enable, it will show different option. We will look in to them in next post. Click Save.

  • Once your enable it , it will display in the bottom of the page.


You can enable this using PowerShell as well. For this you will need PNP Powershell installed in your system. In case you don't have PNP PowerShell Set up, check this blog.

Below is PNP PowerShell command to enable footer:

Connect-PnPOnline -Url "<SiteURL>" –Credentials (Get-Credential) 
Set-PnPFooter -Enabled:$false

Lets configure the footer in the next blog.
