    redirect link: page that launches help from outside of the folder.

    NorBec Level 1

      This should be a simple question for anyone who understands relative links.  Rather than dig into a folder and sort the contents to find the index.html (Start page for online help), I want to have a file that sits outside the help folder, that is not a shortcut, that redirects to the index.

       

      I've learned all I can from

      http://www.grainge.org/pages/authoring/merging_webhelp/merging_toclinks.htm

       

      I created a webpage in notepad, and saved it as onlineHelp.htm:

      --------------

      <HTML>
      <HEAD>


      <TITLE> Redirecting to Online help start page... </TITLE>
      <meta HTTP-EQUIV="REFRESH" content="0; url=".\OnlineHelpFiles\index.htm">

      </HEAD>
      </HTML>

       

      -----------------

      onlineHelp.htm and the OnlineHelpFiles folder with the generated project files sit together in a folder.

      When I click onlineHelp.htm, my browser launches a rattling set of clicks as it tries and fails to load the index.htm page.

       

      What am I doing wrong?

       

       

      It's beside the point, but this is for a test of online help files residing on an iPad that has no network connection.

       

      Thanks!
