I'm using RH8 for HTML. A year ago, I took our 75 Winhelp projects and converted them to 75 HTML projects in order to be compatible with Windows 7. in Winhelp, the user selects Help and gets a central TOC from which to select the help for the individual project they want. Now that we want to install the HTML, we need something similar. we are not set up to have context sensitive help (it's not a browser interface). How do I create a TOC as a separate HTML project from which all of the other projects can be called?
I'd be tempted to fake it out with a topic page that just had hyperlinks to each of the 75 help projects.
I thought of that, but not sure it's best practices. If it doesn't work,
I'm hosed. Thanks for your thoughts.
Best practices? That's all a ToC really is at heart anyway - a bunch of hyperlinks ;>)
You could build yourself a nice big parent/child merged projects scenario if you want the pain...
