Quickly and easily strip away all document framing, styling, site headers, etc. by appending the string, &no_frill=x, to the page url.
The "no frill" parameter allows you to access your document content with additional page elements removed, such as the site header and footer.
This can be used for occasions where you need to display just the body of your document, but the site headers, footers, frames and/or styling are taking up too much precious screen real-estate or are cluttering up a hard copy.
First, determine the full published URL of your KB document. This should look something like
&no_frill=x after the document ID number in the URL, e.g
https://kb.wisc.edu/MyKBSite/page.php?id=12345&no_frill=x, where &no_frill=1"x" is the "no frill" option you wish to use (see below).
Each No Frill parameter omits specific parts of the document. The X in the table below indicates the specific part of the document that is omitted when you append your document url with a specific No Frill parameter.
- Note: Content in the body, such as images and inline CSS, will be displayed while using any one of the No Frill Parameters.

&no_frill=1flag. There is no need to hardcode
&no_frill=xas it persists through the document.
Links within a document appended with the
&no_frill=2 flag will not persist as it is used for document quick views.\
&no_frill=2which has been highlighted in green. As we hover our cursor (which looks like a hand in the image below) over the absolute link, we see that the 5235 link is NOT automatically appended with the
&no_frill=2flag. All framing, styling, site headers etc. will appear when you click on a link within a document appended with
You may embed your KB document into another website using the No Frill Parameter. If you would like your KB document to honor the CSS of the website in which it will be embedded:
