Responsive WebHelp with external HTML files

Post by csquires » Wed Sep 11, 2019 9:40 pm

I have a project that includes a number of html files that come from another team. These files will never be converted to dita butI need to include them in my responsive webhelp output.

The problem I'm facing is when I include them in the transform the header and footer information that allows them to open within the "webhelp" is not added so they open as plain html (not search, toc, index, etc).

Is there a way to include these files so they are also processed by the transform to integrate them into the webhelp output (header, footer, search, index, etc.).

Thanks,
Carolyn

Hi Carolyn,

Thank you for your feedback.
In the WebHelp Responsive output the external HTMLs are not considered part of the documentation, so no further processing is done for this files (there is no header, footer, etc.).
I have added an improvement request to our issue tracking tool to analyze the possibility to process also external HTML files. This issue will be further analyzed by our development team.

Thanks,

In the meantime I'll see if I can't figure out a way to do this.
