Page numbers in WebHelp

Unread postby ArunDash » Wed Apr 12, 2017 12:25 pm

Is there a way to add page numbering to the WebHelp by modifying the CSS file or updating the skin we use for publishing the output? Any help will be appreciated.
Thank you.

Hi Arun,

Page numbers in HTML aren't possible because there are no "pages". A page ends at the end of a piece of paper, and this doesn't exist on a computer monitor. A topic that is longer than a screen just scrolls down until you reach the end. Effectively, every topic is a single page, so every page number would be 1, which wouldn't really make sense.

If you print the browser adds page numbers automatically.
