Ok -- So I've got this SharePoint running under the HTTPS
protocal. It's in my Network Places, but not as a standard
\\computer\share\ as I would expect; no, sharepoints are a little
screwy so it just lists the full
https://www.sharepointserver.com/mywebdirectory -- and I can access
all the subdirectories & everything else from there.
The problem comes when I try to set up RoboHelp to publish to
this mysterious webserver in the sky.
The Choices: FTP, HTTP, Frontpage & Filesystem.
FTP won't work cause -- go figure,
not an FTP server.
Both HTTP and Frontpage don't work
because RH automatically places protocal as "HTTP", without the S
-- connection refused
Filesystem -- oh this one is the one
that really gets me. So I can click the "Browse" button, Navigate
to Network Places and I can see the Sharepoint directory just
sitting there... when I try and click OK on it though, the
Destination Path text box doesn't change... If I select any other
network place it updates it fine... So I try the same format,
\\server\share\, where server is www.sharepointserver.com, share is
-- oh let's say mywebdirectory -- and I get an access denied error.
Probably the closest I got to get it to work.
Has anyone successfully set up
RoboHelp to publish to a Sharepoint?
How did you do it?
Right now I've taken the long route and just Genreate &
Copy over to the sharepoint whenever I need to -- But ideally I'd
like to set it up to publish as that saves copious amounts of
I do publish my help on SharePoint. The below may not work
for you as there may be different settings in you SharePoint
In RoboHelp - In the SSL's output I've entered the path and
the file name (\\Help\version\TypeA\WebHelp\Index.htm). Rather then
browsing to the desired folder, enter the path there or copy -
paste the path from the windows explorer (open the SharePoint site
in Windows Explorer and locate the folder you want to publish your
help, copy the address from the "address bar" and paste it in the
SSL) and generate the help. The output should publish direct to the
In SharePoint - I've created a web part which has links to
the webhelp and I've also uploaded .rar(.chm) so the users can
download the help.
Not sure if this would work for you, I would recommend
checking that you have admin rights to the SharePoint site.
