Removing Prev Next links from Webhelp output

Wed Aug 21, 2013 6:19 pm

I almost have my WebHelp output from oXygen looking the way I want it. I would like to remove the Prev and Next links from the document (right side) pane. I see a note in the online help "You can edit the args.hide.parent.link parameter to hide the Parent, Next, and Previous links." However, I am completely stumped as to what file I should be in to find and edit this parameter.

Thank you for any assistance to get me pointed in the right direction!

I ended up creating a customcss.xml and identifying that file in the custom.css.source parameter for the DocBook WebHelp scenario. I added:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<style>
.navheader, .navfooter, .footer {
visibility:hidden;
}
. . .
</style>

and the links were gone. Still, I would like to know where I can find the args.hide.parent.link parameter is.

Thank you.

I think that is the simplest way of removing the Next/Previous links. A more complicated way would be a customization of an XSLT stylesheet where these links are created in each output XHTML page.

Sorry, the parameter args.hide.parent.link is a standard parameter in DITA transformations for diverse output formats (Webhelp, Eclipse Help, XHTML, etc) and is available only in the DITA transformations. We will remove that note from the User Manual pages about the Docbook Webhelp transformation.
