Modifying plugin XSL

Post by mdslup » Tue Feb 05, 2019 2:48 am

In order to add some functionality to the webhelp classic view, I've been modifying the XSL in the "...frameworks\dita\DITA-OT2.x\plugins\com.oxygenxml.webhelp.classic\xsl" folder.

Is this considered "best practice"?

I think it would be better to copy the plugin folder and edit that code instead. If I did this, how do I connect that new plugin to a transformation scenario?

You could most probably achieve this by developing and using your own custom XSL to override the predefined XSL through an XSLT extension point.
You can find more details about using extension points on this page from our User-Guide: ... mport.html
