I'm having difficulities viewing my project in a Web browser (IE 8) because it is missing the index.htm file. How do I add this file to my project so that it appears in the SSL! folder?
I'm not sure. My server admin says the reason I get the Not Found page in my browser is because the index.htm file is missing.
I'm having issues due to a recent PC reimage and reinstallation of RH8.
If it's the latter, how do I update my SSL recipe?
That didn't work. I noticed that when I compile I and enable active X, my TOC disappears.
Additionally, I've searched all my project backups, and there are plenty, and I wasn't able to find an index.html file. My project is currently live on our production server and index.html appears at the end of the master URL (ex: http://xxx.xxx/xxx/xxxx/index.htm).
Any additional thoughts or suggestions on how to resolve?
In RH8 the start page of output was by-default having the name of project. Did you change the start page name to index.htm?
In order to confirm this please open the SSL properties in RH8. There will be a text field named "Select output folder and Start page". PLease observe this field, this path shows the name and location of start page. You can copy the name of file displayed in this field to your production server location. Now access the help from production server using this file name.
Just so it is clear the default with any new project is to make the file name used to launch the help the same as the project name. For example if you project is called project the file is project.htm. However in web circles it is common - indeed good practice - to make the start page index.htm. This could be what your web admin peeps are looking for. So if you haven't specified this in the SSL the actual start file will be <projectname>.htm.
in the SSL pod you should see the list of various help outputs - find the one that you use (it's probably marked as the default or primary layout), right-click on it and check the Properties
My project is called Conversion_Worklists. What apperas in the Select Output Folder and Start Page field in RH8 is (path to harddrive)\TRACS Master\!SSL!\WebHelp\Conversion-Worklists.htm
However, what appears in my web browswer is domain/tracs/tracs/webhelp/index.htm
Also, now my TOC disappears after compiling and enabling active X controls in my IE8 Web browser. (I'm not sure what going on, but I bet it's something simple that I can't think of. I've never encountered this issue before.)
