Environment: Sharepoint 2013 (on premise)

I want to show a custom message "more info " at the bottom of a list webpart.

Tried by adding a custom message in a Content Editor on the list page at the bottom, but doesn't shows on the WebPart.

I guess jQuery can do the job, Please suggest.

if it is on list view you have override with context,

(function () {    

var overrideCtx = {};
overrideCtx.Templates = {};
overrideCtx.Templates.Footer = "Your message"; 
  • Do i need it in script editor on the list page for the effectcto appear on the list webpart on home page?

  • If you are adding to home page 1) if you add directly to home page it applies to all list views on the page 2) you use as JS link attritube on the list view app part by adding the above script in seperate JS file

  • As per article: learningsharepoint.com/2013/04/13/… suggests, ( JS Link Override will not work if you are using the Custom List Form (i.e. it is edited in SharePoint Designer). Is that correct? Also I have changed the js file with only your code and script tags Still the same. Referring further to article: jsuhail.blogspot.com.au/2014/09/… It seems it should work. In order to be clear for Javascript on my SPS 2013 is working, added to another pg still the same
