Is the any way I can get RoboHelp to automatically rank
search results for relevance in a WebHelp project? HTML Help does
it automatically and JavaHelp also does it, but I haven't had any
luck doing it in WebHelp. Currently, WebHelp results seem to
organized alphabetically, which is pretty useless, unless end users
don't minding clicking on each result - not likely.
I'm sure if there's a solution it probably involves a
to know if it's possible and how to do it.
You've probably gathered that there is no button or option
to provide a ranked search result. It is possible to construct your
scripting, but it's been done.
Perhaps easier would be to use a third-party search tool.
There are some commercial ones, as well as some open-license
routines that you can incorporate into your help project.
Take a look at the search page on my site. There's a link to
the one I use which was simple enough to set up. It's inexpensive,
can rank results, can highlight the term in the results and in the
page accessed, all are options.
