Re: Toggle jump - in reverse?

But I'm still unclear how that works with WebHelp. Maybe because it's NOT dynamic, by the time the text reaches the Web, the snippet contents are already in place in both the tutorial and the Concept uses of the snippet? Hi Dave, I think you need to explain again what you are trying to do. At what ...

Re: Toggle jump - in reverse?

But -- how do I select only a section of a Topic -- that is, NOT use the whole topic? Hi Dave, Tim provided the link to the Snippet help. from which: _____________________________________________ Export selected text as a snippet: 1.Select text in the editor – the text can include anything that a t...

Re: Toggle jump - in reverse?

Is there a way to keep those linked sub-topics from appearing in the tutorial's toggled appearance? It looks as though, since I'm snippet-ing a topic, everything in the topic will appear in the toggle. Hi Dave, What you are asking for there is a way to pass parameters to a snippet. That isn't curre...

Re: Webhelp_SlateGrey skin doesn't have topic head

Hi Dave,

Have you got the text colour set to white? Try wiping across it with the mouse to find out.

regards,

Martin.

Re: Toggle jump - in reverse?

I'm a bit confused. In H+M, when I edited the text that's linked in the toggle snippet, the toggle content reflected the edits - that is, it changed as well. It seems dynamic in that sense. Hi Dave, Tim meant dynamic in the sense that they are created at the time when the end user clicks on them. T...

Re: WebHelp email feedback - from hamburger to page bottom?

"Feedback? Comments? Click on [hamburger icon], upper right, and click on 'Send Mail Feedback.' Your email client will open." Hi Dave, Why not just put an ordinary email link to open the email client? <a href="mailto:us@ourdomain.com?Subject=Blue%20Bananas">click here to send us...

Re: Toggle jump - in reverse?

Is there a way to do this in reverse? That is, when you click on the toggle on Page J to open it, the content of the Toggle (in effect) is created before your very eyes, sourced from another page. Page K? Hi Dave, You can do this if the content is contained in a snippet. You would use the same snip...

Re: WebHelp email feedback - from hamburger to page bottom?

The HTML mailto: requires PHP or ASP somewhere? Hi Dave, HTML mailto: opens the user's email program. The page you were asking about, and my reply, relates to typing a message directly on the web page. It works even for users who don't have any email, although that makes it difficult to reply to th...

Re: WebHelp email feedback - from hamburger to page bottom?

Hi Dave, That's an ordinary HTML form. Easily inserted as an HTML Code Object in specific topics. Or in the page template if you want it automatically in all topics (all topics using that page template). But it needs a PHP or ASP file on the server to receive the submission, and send it to you as an...

Re: Need for ideas: "Here's all the info" vs. "Keep it short

It looks as though I'll have to bite the bullet and manually enter URL-based links to all the applicable areas in the topics. That's going to amount to upwards of 8 manual links per topic on 30+ topics. Plus debugging, thanks to my fat-fingered typos. :( Hi Dave, You could search and replace them a...

Re: Need for ideas: "Here's all the info" vs. "Keep it short

Do you automate the typing-in of the full URL? Or do you put each one in manually? Hi Dave, I have my last publish open in Edge (it has to be Edge for me because I use PHP files, and Edge is the only browser which will render local PHP files). On my topic page template in H&M I have a link to t...

Re: Need for ideas: "Here's all the info" vs. "Keep it short

Hi Dave, It's here. Edit the link: hm_link.png missed the part in your message where you said you didn't use a skin. How do you output WebHelp without a skin? Click "remove skin" at the very bottom of the "open skin" panel. Written in haste as I have to go out. cheers, Martin.

Re: Need for ideas: "Here's all the info" vs. "Keep it short

Well, the new tab idea is most tantalizing, but I can't get it to work in WebHelp. Hi Dave, This is what H&M puts in the internet links for me: <a href="http://www.wyreforest.gov.uk" target="_blank" rel="nofollow" class="weblink"> All working fine here. W...

Re: Icons mystery

Thanks Tim. It's been suggested on another forum that this is a bug in Windows, putting the compression icon in the wrong place on Mondays in February.

Who would have thought that Windows would still have bugs in it after all these years? :)

regards,

Martin.

Re: Need for ideas: "Here's all the info" vs. "Keep it short

The browser Back works sometimes. Most instances seem to go back to the top of the original topic... but it's academic. Hi Dave, That might depend on which skin you are using and which browser. It always works for me in Firefox and Edge. I didn't realize that I had to select "Internet Link&quo...
