To create a custom banner that appears between the menu and content on pages, place a file named _banner.html in any module you will include in your server. Place it at the following location:


The banner is written in HTML and the <body> section can render any kind of content, including links, images, and scripts. It is also responsible for its own formatting, dependencies, and resources.


The following _banner.html file adds a simple message in place of the ordinary page title, typically the folder name. Create a new .html file in the location described above. This content will give you a simple starting place.

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
<meta charset="UTF-8">
<p style="font-size:16px;">
<br />
&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;<span class="fa fa-flag"></span> <b>This is a custom banner - from the footerTest module</b> <span class="fa fa-flag"></span>
<br />

In this example, the banner HTML file was placed in the resources/views directory of a "footerTest" module created in our development test environment. If _banner.html files are defined in several modules, you will be able to select which module's definition to use. When you apply a banner within a project, you can also opt to use it throughout subfolders in the project or only at the top level.

The header region is between the menu bar and web part content.
