    Can glossary terms appear in search results?

      Hi, I'd like to add glossary terms to my search results. Is this possible? If so, can you tell me how?

          Can you tell us what your output is? If it is webhelp I think technically you can edit the files containing the search data. Not sure you'd really want to do so though. It may be better to just ensure that the terms are included in the topic text. That way the search will find them.

            Hi all

            Further to what Colum suggested, can you better explain exactly how you would like to see this operate? Just give us your "mind's eye" view of how it would work.

            Personally, I'm struggling to figure out how something like that would work. I'm guessing that perhaps upon clicking the "found" term in the Search Results, you would like the Glossary tab to replace the Search tab and the term be highlighted?

            If that's the case, there is no way I'm aware of to make that happen. I'm with Colum in that you should probably just ensure the terms exist in a topic.

            Or, perhaps create a single topic that only lists the Glossary terms and definitions. You could do this quite easily. Just create the topic so it's open in the Topic Editing area. Then open the Glossary Pod/Pane. Click and drag the terms from the Glossary Pod/Pane to the topic. When you do that, it should automagickally create expanding hotspots in the Topic.

            Cheers... Rick
