You should be able to do it here. I'm not sure whether this will survive patches, and probably won't survive upgrades, so you might want to make a note of the changes somewhere, to investigate after either event. (at least it's better than having to redo the change in the output files each time, as I've had to do with some "fixes". )
Find the following directory. The location might vary a bit, depending on where Robohelp is installed
C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe RoboHelp 8\RoboHTML\WebHelp5Ext\template_stock
Create a backup copy of whfhost.js. (e.g. "whfhost_original.js")
In the original file, find "function writeTableHead".
I couldn't see any obvious problems with doing this, but I haven't conducted a lot of tests. As always, your mileage may vary.
This seems to have done the trick! In my case, the width value is defined in pixels rather than %; I changed it to 0px, and the Rank column no longer appears in the generated help file. The Search Results number entry box is still present, as are the numbered boxes and forward arrow box below the listed Search results; we'll have to live with those for the time being (still would like to see options in RoboHelp for removing those). We'll keep our eyes peeled for any issues, but so far so good. Thank you!
I had one of our dev guys helping me out. It was not obvious, we ditched the whole idea of removing ranking.
I require help in hide/remove the number of results box and search results per page from the Robohelp help output. Can you please help what changes do I need to do in the code.
Will appreciate your help. Kind of urgent!!!
This topic is really old and probably irrelevant now.
What you need to do depends entirely on what version of Robohelp and what output you are using. For example, for Webhelp output in RH 11, there are checkboxes "Hide Rank Column in Search Results" and "Show Total Number of Search Results". But for Multiscreen HTML5, you will need to change the Screen Layout you are using.
