webHelp: simple typo correction = simple?

Unread post by Dave Gehman » Tue Oct 08, 2019 3:48 pm

I have a typo in the first sentence of a topic. There are no hyperlinks in the sentence, or for that matter, in the topic as a whole, other than links to graphics.

Can I simply get on the server, pull the HTML into Notepad, make the correction, and save it back to the server?

Or do I have to Publish the entire site and upload the behemoth to the server to refresh the entire site?

Hi Dave,

If you also change it in your project so that it doesn't get reverted that should be OK. However, if you are using a V3 skin you need to make the change in two places on the server: Both in the topicname.htm(l) top-level topic file and in the JSON version in the topicname.js file in the /jstopics subfolder.

Thanks, and it's already fixed in the Project. I'm publishing in a simpler world, I think with a V2 skin... in any case, I have no jstopics subfolder.
