Is it possible to change what topics can turned on and off by passing a parameter via the url. At the moment, when I use a conditional tag, everything that is not in the "excluded" column will show up in the final WebHelp. But I would like to control what topics in the TOC show up based on a parameter. Is that possible?
Unfortunately RoboHelp makes no provision for that. About the only way you could make it happen would be to create as many permutations as you need. For example, let's say you need six different TOC layouts. You would need to create six different WebHelp outputs and store each output in a separate folder. Each of the TOCs would be different. You would then link to the desired WebHelp output.
There is another way you might accomplish it. You could create multiple projects and gather them together using a Merged setup. You could then control what appears in the TOC by restricting access to the folders where the Merged Projects are placed. If the master TOC cannot find the folder for a Child, it will not display the Books and Pages for the Child.
