I'm interested in whether RoboHelp allows customization of
the information displayed when using its Search function on a site.
A little background information...
The website I maintain was constructed through RoboHelp, and
is a collaboration of 6 projects under one server. We keep as
little content as possible on the actual Topic pages, and instead
link to content-heavy files (doc, xls, ppt, pdf, etc.) on another
part of the server.
For a large database of files, we use a coded naming
convention (ex: ABC 123 456.doc), which helps organize on the
backend. All of these similarly-named files are linked into the
Robo site, and therefore show up in the Search as a link to the
document, using the file name. This creates an issue because our
users are often unfamiliar with the naming convention, and can't
tell from the Search results which file they are looking for (even
if they know the exact title).
When a web page from the RoboHelp projects turns up in search
results, it displays as "Home Page," not "Home_Page.htm," so I'm
hoping there would be a way to make the files display another field
of information -- For example, can I edit each document's
Properties so the file
title reads in the Title field, then have the Search results
read from that? If there are no better ways of doing this, my last
resort is to rename AND relink over 500 document files.
