Can I / How to remove "Webhelp output generated by"

Post by marika » Tue Jan 04, 2011 8:11 am

Is there a way to remove the "Webhelp output generated by Oxygen XML Author" text from the bottom of every page of my Web Help output?
If so, could someone point me to the instructions please?

Hi Marika,

Sure, the Oxygen WebHelp transformation is based on the DITA Open Toolkit XHTML transformation.
The XSLT stylesheets for the WebHelp plugin can be found here:

OXYGEN_INSTALL_DIR/frameworks/dita/DITA-OT/plugins/webhelp

You just have to open in Oxygen the following XSLT stylesheet:
OXYGEN_INSTALL_DIR/frameworks/dita/DITA-OT/plugins/webhelp/xsl/dita2webhelpImpl.xsl

search in it for the <div class="footer"> element and comment it for example.

This is excellent, just the info I needed. But before I get too far along customizing the output from the Oxygen variation of the standard web help, can you clarify any license restrictions on the transform?

I just want to make sure that the final webHelp that I generate will be something that my company can freely distribute without any concerns about Oxygen copywrights.

Looks like a good starting point for what I need!

Thanks!

Hi Tom,

There are no copyright restrictions that we impose on the final WebHelp output.

But if you would like to automate the process (to generate the content automatically on a server) you would need some special licensing as an Oxygen license key is user-based. So only in this case you should contact us using our technical support email address for more details.

The directories are different in version 14. Can you update this for version 14?

Thanks,
Karen

Hello,

The only change related with this discussion is the name of the DITA-OT plugin directory which is now com.oxygenxml.webhelp instead of webhelp, so in version 14 you should apply the modifications in directory OXYGEN_INSTALL_DIR/frameworks/dita/DITA-OT/plugins/com.oxygenxml.webhelp.

Hi,

I am using <oXygen/> XML Editor 18, and I cannot find how to remove this element in the webhelp classic output. The <div class="footer"> element does not seem to exist in dita2webhelpImpl.xsl. Could you provide me with more information about that?

Thanks in advance.

Hi Yu1iya,

You do not need to modify any stylesheet, as there is a predefined parameter that controls this behavior and which you can use in your transformation scenario.

You should duplicate and edit the scenario you are currently using (I guess this is "DITA Map WebHelp Classic") and, in the "Parameters" tab, look for the "webhelp.footer.include". Edit the parameter and set its value to "no", then apply the changes. Going further, use the modified scenario you have just created to publish your WebHelp.
More details about this and other transformation scenario parameters are available in our User-Guide.

Hi,
In v21, if i don't set any value to webhelp.fragment.footer, the default value 'Generate by oXygen Webhelp...' is added to the footer. What to do to not get any footer?

Thanks...
Syed

Hello,

There is no available setting that disables the footer of a page.
However, if you want to remove the default content of the footer section, you can set the webehelp.fragment.footer parameter to " " or to "<span/>".
In order to hide the footer entirely you should add a custom CSS rule to your output like the one below:

Code: Select all

.wh_footer {
  display:none;
}
The procedure to achieve this is describe in our User Manual: https://www.oxygenxml.com/doc/versions/ ... h-css.html
