Webhelp Responsive 21.1 - Apply custom sort for Index Terms

Post by axhxu » Thu Sep 19, 2019 5:36 pm

Hi,
Is there a way to apply a custom sort/grouping for index terms. Specifically we translate our content to simplified Chinese and received feedback that the index terms are not sorted correctly.

Thanks

Hi Arron,

Unfortunately, there isn't an out of the box implementation for the use-case you have indicated. You could try to achieve this by developing a XSLT customization using XSLT extension points (note that this requires XSLT knowledge). For instance, you can try to use com.oxygenxml.webhelp.xsl.createIndexTermsPage extension point:Extension point - xsl.createIndexTermsPage

Details about how to use XSLT extension points from publishing templates can be found in our user manual:
