    Linking to my finished project

    Vijfhoog8ter

      Hi all,

       

      I've made my help documentation using RoboHelp 7. It is finished and published. Now I want to link to specific help pages from a website. I want the help to appear in a popup. I also want the menu on the left side expanded to the right page.

       

      I've place this link in my page:

      <a href="__help/project_name_csh.htm#topicid=some_topic,withnavpane=true,width=700,height=50 0,toolbar=no,resizable=yes">help</a>

       

      What happens and what goes wrong.

      • When I click the link the pop-up will open.
      • The menu is not expanded but collapsed
      • The menu does not work, if I click nothing happens
      • The right help page does display

       

      • When I leave the pop-up open and go back to the website to click another help link
      • The pop-up does not get focus
      • The URL does change
      • The content does not change (copying the url in a new browser does work)
      • Menu is not working

       

      • When I close the pop-up and go back to the website to click another help link
      • The pop-up does get focus
      • The URL does change
      • The content does change
      • Menu is not working

       

      When I go to __help/project_name.htm in a browser the whole help works just fine. Menu works and all.

       

      So how can I:

      • have the right content showing in the pop-up?
      • get the menu to work in the pop-up?
      • give it focus?

       

      If anyone can help I would be very pleased. Thanks a lot!
