    WebHelp generated in RH11 causes errors in Google Translate.

    MSCaroline

      I have a WebHelp system that I originally generated in RH9. Pages from that generated output seem to do fine when I use translate.google.com to translate them, regardless of browser. However, I've subsequently upgraded to RH11, and now the new generated output causes problems in some browsers. Specifically, the error message in Firefox (v. 33.0.3) is "Error: Permission denied to access property 'whname'," pointing to line 10 in whproxy.js. Chrome (38.0.2125.111m) gives the following error message, pointing to the same line in the same file: "Uncaught SecurityError: Blocked a frame with origin "http://translate.googleusercontent.com" from accessing a frame with origin "http://translate.google.com". Protocols, domains, and ports must match."

       

      For what it's worth, here's the function it's talking about, from RH11's generated whproxy.js:

       

      function getStubPage_inter(wCurrent) {

          if (null == wCurrent.parent || wCurrent.parent == wCurrent)

              return null;

       

          if (typeof (wCurrent.parent.whname) == "string" && "wh_stub" == wCurrent.parent.whname)

              return wCurrent.parent;

          else {

              if (wCurrent.parent.frames.length != 0 && wCurrent.parent != wCurrent)

                  return getStubPage_inter(wCurrent.parent);

              else

                  return null;

          }

      }

       

      I'm so unfamiliar with JavaScript that I can't make heads or tails of this, and I haven't had any successful suggestions from within my company. One developer suggested that I should take the whproxy.js that was generated by RH9 and stick that into my generated output, since doing so solves the problem. I'm a bit hesitant to do that, as I figure that there might actually be reasons for the (MANY) differences between the two versions and I'm uncertain what I'll break or lose by using an old version of the file. I'm hoping that somebody here might be able to enlighten me as to possible consequences of such an action, or possible workarounds, or anything else of interest. (And please,  no commentary on the relative value of using Google Translate. It wasn't my decision, I just build the help! :-) )

       

      Thanks,
