I am working in RH8 (converted from RH5) and I created 10 new topics under a TOC Book (using same name as the old book). When I generate the WebHelp output (without selecting the add breadcrumbs links option) the breadcrumbs of the topics in new TOC Book search for a location that does not exist. For example, the breadcrumb shows Home > TOC Book Name > Current Topic Name. When you select TOC Book Name for any of the newly created topics, an error is produced that says you cannot display the webpage.
However, if I select the add breadcrumbs links option, I get duplicate breadcrumbs in all the topics (not just the new ones) where one breadcrumb works and the other does not. I would like to keep the working breadcrumbs and remove the duplicate or just get the new topics to work using breadcrumbs and the TOC Book.
I have attached pictures to support my questions.
One of the Breadcrumb trails is being created by virtue of a Placeholder associated with a Master Page while the other is a global setting during generation. You might wish to try editing the Master Page, then removing and re-inserting the Placeholder. That one seems to be giving you fits.
Or just remove the placeholder altogether and use only the globally added breadcrumbs.

I found it. I needed to clean the baggage files. It seems to have fixed the problem.
