How do I get rid of "widgetmax.com"?

Jan 22, 2014 6:17 AM

I seem to recall seeing a place, somewhere in Robo 10, where I can change widgetmax.com to something else. I've gotten my first complaint from a reviewer about this. Where do I go to change it?

    Hi there

     

    Try clicking View > Pods > User Defined Variables. It's probably a variable.

     

    Cheers... Rick

    When the reviewer lodged the complaint, they didn't say where they saw it? That would provide a big clue.

     

    Try generating WebHelp and see if you can find it using search. If so, that may provide a clue where it's lurking.

     

    Cheers... Rick

    One other thought. I believe when I set that up, WidgetMax.com is the fictitious site pointed to by the CompanyURL variable. So when you look at the variables pod you can't rely on just looking at the list of variables. Look at the value on the right side. Remember, variables may also be formatted. And in this case, likely the CompanyURL is still pointing to WidgetMax.com.

     

    Cheers... Rick

    Ahhhh, okay. I have you now.

     

    I believe it's in the Window definition. I know you said you de-selected button one. Try re-selecting that button and click the Advanced Properties button. That's where the link is hiding.

     

    Cheers... Rick

    "If anyone ever did a good RoboHelp manual, it would be worth its weight in gold!"

     

    Want to put your money where your mouth is?

     

    The problem is the life of such a book would be no more than about eighteen months. In that time it is difficult to get your money back to pay for the time. But if payment in gold is a possibility...

    LOL, not to mention the fact that "a good RoboHelp manual" is very subjective.

     

    What one person may think is awesome another will sneer at.

    As far as training goes, it costs so much for travel these days. Webinar type of training is often far more efficient as nobody on either side has to travel. While I see a fair number of classes where folks try to cram it all in over the course of three days, arrangements can even be made so a course would occur over a longer span of time and perhaps in the evenings.

     

    Cheers... Rick

    True, Lynda.com is one way web based training works.

     

    What I was referring to was training where you have a live instructor at a computer and you are connected and able to see the instructor's screen or s/he sees yours and the training works exactly like being together in a classroom. The difference is there is no classroom. The software that connects you is the classroom.

     

    You are still able to ask any questions that emerge as they come up. The Lynda.com training isn't quite like that. It's more like watching YouTube videos.

     

    Cheers... Rick

    I took the lynda.com robohelp course, it was helpful to begin. I've now turned to the forum for any questions etc. Does anyone know of other online self-paced tutorials? Prefer free/cheap....
