Integrate jquery

How could I integrate this jquery stylesheet switcher functionality into my webhelp output? http://hibbard.eu/using-cookies-with-jquery-to-make-a-simple-style-switcher/ I tried playing around with inserting scripts into the header file, but it seems a bit problematic. I'm not sure exactly why I have...

Re: error with comment form

Sorry, I'm not sure what triggered the error. I didn't use any special characters. I'll be on the lookout the next time it happens to see if I can pinpoint the cause. I ended up repurposing the db for something else, so the error log won't be any help at this point.

error with comment form

With Oxygen's webhelp with feedback, somehow the comment form got messed up. It doesn't appear in the display, and I received this error: [10.246.126.56] - 2014-08-08 01:02:39: Error:[0] message:[r: Error:1064-You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL serv...

Re: more info for deploying Webhelp with Feedback?

Here are a few more questions I have in using webhelp with feedback: On the first deployment, how do you specify the administrator? When you install webhelp with feedback, there isn't a field where you set the admin. By default, there is a username called "administrator" tied to the administrator's ...

Re: more info for deploying Webhelp with Feedback?

I did have one more question. Suppose I change a file name. When I publish the webhelp with feedback, does that register as a new topic without the comment history? Or is the topic_id that must be the same to maintain the comment history? By the way, my notes on the type of information I was looking...

Re: more info for deploying Webhelp with Feedback?

Thanks for the info. Knowing that I could just create a user with all privileges to the database is helpful (rather than trying to guess whether there were special permissions in that sql statement). That is a pretty common process. Also helpful is knowing the location of that config.php file so tha...

Re: Getting child links to appear on parent pages?

Thanks. I know what I was doing wrong. I was using the topichead element as the parent element, rather than a topicref. I fixed that now.

One follow-up question. Is there any way to add a title above the child links? Would I just do this in the stylesheet using the content element?

Getting child links to appear on parent pages?

I've forgotten how to activate the hierarchical link feature. When you have child pages under a parent, the parent page usually has links to those child pages. I think there's a parameter in Oxygen's webhelp output that I need to enable for this hierarchical linking feature, but I can't remember wha...

Web skin builder Export button fails to work

The web skin builder is pretty awesome. However, twice now after making updates to the skin for about 40 minutes, when I click the Export button, nothing happens. First time I was using Chrome; second time, Firefox. Is there a way for me to get my settings out of there apart from that Export button?...

Re: Strategies for dealing with versions?

Thanks for the info. Different customers use different versions of the product, so we have to maintain valid doc for each version. Your response answers my question. I am aware of how software teams use version control, and I guess we might follow the same pattern. Thanks,
