Viewing and managing your content hierarchy in Arrange Articles

  • Edoardo Calleri

    Hi all, I am setting the help center but in the Final User preview I don't see the two sections that I see in the admin preview. What do I have to do in order to show the sections and articles to final user? Thanks

    Hey, Edoardo!

    Hope you're doing well!

    You might have created a new category with sections, but did not add any articles to these sections. If you look here, Why aren't categories and sections visible to customers?, there are also a couple of reasons as to why you can see them while logged in as an admin, but not when checking it as a customer.

    Hope this helps!

    Hello Zendesk Team,

    Is it possible to insert a hyperlink on the section title or in the section's description?

  • Ahn Letran

    Hello, Rene,

    As of now, we do not support adding hyperlinks on the section's title nor its description. If you could add your use-case to this being added as a feature, that'll be great!

    Is it possible to create a section only visible to a specific user segment?
    Something like Internal Docs that is only visible to Agents and admins.

    Hi Allan –

    View permissions are controlled at the article level, but if no articles in a section are viewable to a given user, the section will not appear for them. So in your case, you'd just set each article in that section to be viewable only by that one user segment. For more information, see Setting view permissions on articles with user segments, which includes a note on updating view permissions in bulk (useful if that section has a lot of articles). Hope that helps!

    Hi Zendesk team,

    We have certain categories where the list of articles is long (30+), and some of the articles are not visible within the category. Is there a setting somewhere where I can increase the number of visible articles?

  • Bri Fitzgerald
    Hey Vaibhav! I'm grateful for your patience. I took at a look at your help center and it appears you've already figured this out. I'll explain for anyone else that may be curious:

    By default, sections can only display 30 articles at a time, so if that limit is exceeded, pagination will be added. In order to exceed this 30-article limit, you'll need to customize your help center theme. Please bear in mind that we are unable to provide support for custom code. I've included a sample screenshot below. You can find a full list of Guide product limits in this knowledge base article: 'Guide product limits for your help center'
