When you refer to an "older version" were you producing Winhelp output? I seem to remember something like that but with more modern outputs this is not available......at least not in the way you describe. You could add a template with the citation in the footer. Here we have a template containing an image that is linked to a citation topic. The citation doesn't print on every topic but it meets our requirements.
To some extent, you can replicate that WinHelp feature in HTML-based help by using media-specific properties in your style sheet to control the visibility of the copyright statement. For example, in the sample below, the copyright statement is hidden except when users print the topic or paste its contents to the Clipboard.
Whoa... nice job Pete! Way cool.
That's fab Pete!
Just a little question from stupidsville here... Does all that code go in the css file, or just part of it? Does it need pasting in at a particular place?
Thanks for this.
No, Liz, that's all topic stuff.
The HTML tags are already in your topic.
The HEAD tags are already in your topic.
The BODY tags are already in your topic.
The H1 tags are (probably) already in your topic.
Place everything within Pete's HEAD tags in that section of each affected topic.
Place the P CLASS= "copyright, blah, blah goes wherever you want it within the topic.
What if you want it applied to every topic and you are working on a large project? How would you add that to the style sheet of the project rather than add it to the HEAD tag of each topic?
Use a find and replace tool. FAR and BkReplacem are two popular ones and the later is freeware.
Hmmm, ok thanks. Not as workable as I first thought.
I'll check out those find and replace tools though before i completely dismiss it.
Can you add the material that is between the <style> ... </style> tags to your .css file, and then just append the <p class="copyright"> ... </p> to each topic?
