    Breadcrumb Placement

    XM8_Hoff

      I went through the first few pages of search results and couldn't find an answer, so here goes.

       

      I am on RH9 and I currentlly have some very long topics. I am also using the WebHelp SSL. Since the topics can get long, I was wondering if there was a way to keep the breadcrumbs at the top of the screen in a WebHelp, kind of like how Adobe AIR does it? Am I going to need to write some javascript in order to do that, or is there something that I have missed that can do it?

       

      Thanks in advance,

      Dan

          Hi Dan

           

          Sorry, nothing in RoboHelp that allows you to make them remain in a fixed location. Something like that would require enough folks submitting Wish Forms that Adobe would build it in.

           

          Not saying it can't be done. Perhaps Willam has some magickal JavaScript/CSS hack to make it happen. Willam?

           

          You might submit a Wish Form, (Link is in my sig)

           

          Cheers... Rick

            That is kind of what I thought. Thank you, sir. I'll see what I can figure out.

              In case anyone was wondering, here is the solution I went with.

               

              I created a fixed location on the top of the window using CSS, and then added a breadcrumbs rh-placeholder in the body of the html. I found the CSS solution on http://forums.adobe.com/message/4398168#4398168#4398168, and made some alterations to it. There is probably some overlap that can be removed, but this works for now.

               

              Thanks to Captiv8r, John Daigle, and Peter Grainge for their posts.

               

              I have only tried this with WebHelp, so I don't know if it will work for other SSLs.

               

              IN THE .CSS FILE:

               

              p.h1_fixed {

                  width: 7.25in;

                  text-align: Right;

                  font-weight: bold;

                  font-size: 8pt;

                  line-height: 10pt;

                  text-transform: uppercase;

                  position: fixed;

                  top: 0;

                  left: .5in;

                  right: 0;

                  margin: 0;

                  padding: 0 0 0 0;

                  background: #fff no-repeat 99% 90%;

                  border-bottom: 1px solid #093a80;

              }

               

              IN THE BODY OF THE HTML:

               

              <body>

              <div id="h1_fixed" class="h1_fixed">

                  <?rh-placeholder type="breadcrumbs" ph-align="2" usetopicformat="1"

                   home="Home" sep-char=" &gt; " ph-style="font-family:Arial;font-size:8pt;font-weight: normal;font-style: normal;text-decoration: underline;" ?>

              </div>

              <!-- Other content was added here -->

              </body>
