How do I attach a .css file to my Knowledge Base articles?


NetIQ Knowledge Base 2.0 does not support functionality to modify or input a customized style sheet. However, you may be able to implement a CSS file by manually modifying some settings in the KB database.  These steps have not been validated in all environments, and only apply to articles you have created.

To try to apply a customized style sheet for articles you create:

  1. Backup the NetIQKB database.
  2. In SQL Enterprise Manager, expand the NetIQKB database.
  3. Select Tables > doNQ_PageTemplate.
  4. Right-click doNQ_PageTemplate > Open Table > Return All Rows.
  5. Cross-reference the cell in the column labeled _CSS-en-US and the row whose Name column is UnknownArticle.
  6. Replace that cell with the contents of your preferred CSS file.
