    Merged Help - what should be in the parent .hhk file?

    Tech Writer KC Level 1



      Still trying to track down our blank index issues. Quick question, in a help system of 1 parent and 20ish children files, what should I be expecting in the parent's hhk file?


      For example, this is what is in our current Parent.hhk:


      <!-- Sitemap 1.0 -->
      <object type="text/site properties">
        <param name="SiteType" value="index">
        <li><object type="text/sitemap">
          <param name="Name" value="About the Help System">
          <param name="Name" value="About the Help System">
          <param name="Local" value="About_the_Help_System.htm">


      Is this okay? Our parent file is a 'shell' file - it contains only two topics - the start page and an "About the Help System" page. Otherwise, it's sole purpose in life is to provide a TOC linked to the child .chm files.


      The parent.hhk file above shows the single indexed topic within our parent file - the aforementioned "About" page - but nothing else. And unlike something like the .hhp file, there's no "MERGE" section or links/references to Child1.chm, Child2.chm, etc.


      Should there be?
