    Source Files

    harooki2 Level 1
      I'm using RH7.

      Looking at my project folder, I see:

      Inside my !SSL!\WebHelp folder, I see:

      Though the folders outside of !SSL! are similar to those inside the WebHelp folder, they are not exactly the same and contain some old stuff that is not used in my compiled output. The folders inside match the folders in my Project Manager.

      Why do I have these two folder trees? Someone is reviewing my work by looking at the source files. Which HTML files should they be looking at? Did I create this confusion or did RH?

          Hi harooki2

          Actually, you both did!

          You said one of the folders is obsolete? Why not delete it from inside RoboHelp? That would help avoid some of the confusion in and of itself.

          If you have an end user looking at things, you are probably interested in the contents of the folder you see inside the !SSL! folder, as that one should contain your output files.

          Cheers... Rick

            I don't see that obsolete folder in my Project Manager to delete it. Why is there a near identical set of folders outside of the !SSL! folder.

              Hi again

              There is one thing I stress in all the classes I conduct. You never ever want to confuse your source with your output.

              The files in one location are the source files. Files in the !SSL! location are the OUTPUT files. If the folder isn't showing in your RoboHelp Project manager, you are probably safe to delete it manually using Windows Explorer, because RoboHelp will only list what it knows about inside the Project Manager.

              However, just to be on the totally safe side, I would suggest moving the folder to a different area until you are absolutely certain it (and nothing inside it) is needed. Once you are certain, then delete it for good.

              You will also likely find some folders inside that !SSL! folder that don't exist in your source folder. These will have names like WHDATA, WGDATA, etc. They are there for supporting WebHelp.

              Cheers... Rick

                I have a problem when I generated the project I didn´t got the SSL folder. I think it was because I generated into a knew folder with a new name - what did I do wrong. Kan I open the project whith another file insteed of the XPJ-file?
