But off the top of my head the following things come to mind: 1) You can add various metadata to your config catalogs. Though not the most user friendly document, the Catalog XML specification  describes what can be contained in the configuration catalogs. The "THREDDS Metadata" section  goes into detail about what types of metadata can be included in the catalogs. The "metadata" element  can contain non-THREDDS XML or an XLink to an external XML document. The "documentation" element  can contain plain text or an HTML fragment. Unfortunately, not all these options get mapped very well into the HTML catalog/dataset view. A "metadata" element with an XLink will show up as a link in the HTML page but any XML content does not show up. Similarly for documentation, plain text is included in the HTML view but HTML is not shown. 2) Another possibility would be to change the CSS files linked to in the catalog/dataset HTML pages. The HTML has not been designed particularly with this in mind so this may be a bit limited. If you place your CSS files in content/thredds/public and call them tds.css and tdsCat.css they will be used automatically. Otherwise, you can configure the TDS to use other CSS files in the threddsConfig.xml file (see  for more details on this). 3) This one is particular to the "Viewer" links at the bottom of each dataset page. Besides the default links (IDV and ToolsUI) there are two ways to add other viewer links both described in .
